Rare Boy Names You Don’t Know (Yet!)
Lovers of unknown 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 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 rare boy names you’ve never heard of.

My first choice of these would be Garrick. But, I would use Corbett, Eban, and maybe Sulien and Thorin.

Love Alaric, Amon and Garrick. Nilo, Olin and Quilliam are intriguing. Argus is all Filch to me.
