100 Unique Baby Boy Names You Won’t Regret

The Social Security Administration has published lists of the most popular names every year since the late 1800s. These names weren't on them.

We all want our babies to have a name that announces the arrival of a new individual, unlike any who has come before. For some parents, that means building on the strength of tradition, with classic boys’ names, while for others it means seeking out a unique baby boy’s name — a boy’s name that’s uncommon, cool, bold, unusual, or original. There are those of us who have that unique baby name picked out years in advance; others are still testing out the perfect baby boy names in the delivery room. Then there are those who select that unique baby boy name, the one that just feels right, only to find out that someone in their family or social circle already has the same name (How could you, Sharon!) or that it’s not as uncommon as they thought.

The Social Security Administration has published annual lists of the most popular names since the late 1800s. Thinking of naming your son Noah, Elijah, Mason, or Logan? He’ll be in good company, as they’re all in the top 10 most popular baby boy names. But the Social Security lists also tell us which names are less common. If you’re looking for unique baby boy names — the unusual baby boy names that will set your kid apart from the Jakes/Jacks/Bens/Liams/Hudsons in his class, while not being so far out there that you tire of shouting “Drogo!” after them in a few years, we’ve got you covered. Here, then, is a list of 100 of the best unique baby boy names that you’ll never second-guess. Good luck in your search.
