Yes it's very annoying to see how limited boy names are on this and other sites. I've always dreamed of having boys and maybe 1 girl so I'm far more interested in boy names. Most people are fearful of going against the grain with boy names so they have a narrow view of what's acceptable. I always check the girl name lists because some sites, including Nameberry, will list a boy/unisex name as female and not even acknowledge that it is used for boys too

i need even farther out than top 100, i need outside the top 1000 so i have been looking at the ssa's beyond the top 1000 lists but its waaaay slow going. some of the above blogs have posts from them and they've taken the time to find the most interesting or the first time a name appeared.
namecandy is even worse than nameberry, its all about trend and celebrities which is the opposite of what i want. while i dont want some crazy hard to pronounce boy name, i'd like to find something older and obscure. ive found one or two that might work, that roll off the tongue nicely or have a good nickname, but they just arent quiet right yet.

I agree behindthename is a great siteDelicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot

I'm currently compiling a list of obscure boys names (ones that first appeared on the Social Security list in 2012) but it is a very tedious process. My best advice is to go to the Social Security site and look at the 2012 list (or recent years) starting at the bottom (the most uncommon boys names are at the bottom) Then to easily find U.S. popularity, go to the Our Baby Namer website under the "Popularity" tab and plug in your favorite names. It is an arduous task, but it will be worth it. Best wishes--I am sure you'll find something fantastic!
