But what about the baby names right below the Top 1000, hiding just out of sight but prime for plucking by the clever baby namer?
We chose 25 names for girls and 25 names for boys we found swimming just beneath the surface of the Top 1000. These baby names strike the perfect balance between unusual and familiar.
The names are ordered from more to less popular, but even the least popular choices are used for within 50 babies of the Top 1000. Which are your favorites?
