Rare Boy Names You Don’t Know (Yet!)

ADVERTISEMENT

Lovers of rare boy names – today it’s your turn!

Yesterday, we brought you a list of 100+ rare girl names that feel unique but highly usable, and today we bring you the boys’ list. The rules are the same: none of these names was given to more than 10 baby boys in 2018 (the most recent year for which the SSA has released data) – and many are truly one of a kind.

These rare baby names hail from languages and cultures from all over the world, and include traditional choices as well as under-the-radar surname and word names. The one thing they have in common? You’ve probably never heard of them.

(Go on – let us know in the comments section how many were really new to you!)

Without further ado, here’s our A to Z roundup of the 100+ best unique boy names you’ve never heard of.
