The 10 Most Unique Baby Boy Names
Have you been looking for the top 10 most unique baby boys names?
There’s no better way for your son to stand out than by giving him a unique, powerful name! These names for baby boys are either rare or extinct (meaning that no one was given that name in 2019). Based on name rankings in recent years, these names are amongst the most unique baby boy names in recent times.
10 Most Unique Baby Boy Names
This strong name ranked as the 13,839th most commonly used name in 2016, and seems to have fallen off the radar since then. At its peak in the 1910’s, it was still rare. Now, only 2 baby boys per million are given this name.
Dextin was the 11,388th most commonly used name in 2018, with no information on it for 2019. Only 2 babies per million were given this name last year, which seems to be a unique take on Dexter.
Rodman is an English name that means “famous,” and it was the 12,562nd most commonly used name in 2010. It may not be completely extinct, though, since 5 baby boys per million were given the name in 2014. It peaked in the mid 1920’s, but hardly – at that time, roughly 30 babies per million were named Rodman.
Dillard is actually a unisex name, but it’s more commonly given to boys. In 2014, 2 babies per million were born with the name Dillard, but there’s no data beyond that year. Nicknames can include Dill, like the nostalgic Rugrats character.
This unique take on Mykael isn’t as hot as you may think. It was the 11,388th most popular name for boys in 2018, with 2 babies per million born with the name. Other variations of the classic Michael include Mikhael, Mikail, and Mikael.
If you like the name Kayden, but it’s not original enough for your son, try naming him Keaden instead! This name was the 19,881st most common name in 2018, with only 1 in a million baby boys receiving the name last year. There’s no data for 2019, which means your baby boy may be the only Keaden of the year!
Place names are usually quite common, but not this one! Although it was apparently tied with Keaden for popularity in 2018, official records for Melbourne as a name end in 1989! At that point, only 4 babies per million were given the name. Last year, some BabyCenter.com users reported giving their sons the name, but only 1 in a million boys were named Melbourne in 2018. Why haven’t more people thought to use it?
Any Eminem fan will love the name Matther for their son born in 2019! There have been no official records of boys being given this name since 1988, but BabyCenter.com users reported that 1 in a million boys were named Matther in 2018. Do you “stan” this name?
Military families might lean towards this name, which was the 11,433rd most widely used name in 2017. With no data for 2018 or 2019, your son may be the only one born with this strong name this year! Admiral peaked over 100 years ago, and essentially dropped off the face of the Earth afterwards. Will you be the one to bring it back?
With so many baby names to choose from, it can be hard to find the right one for your son. Think outside of the box with a rare or extinct name this year!
