The Best Cool Undiscovered Boy Names

Undiscovered boy names come in styles to suit every taste. There are cool unique boy names from history, which include such rare edgy choices as Erasmus and Benno. Then there are undiscovered classic names for boys that have fallen off the radar but deserve a fresh look, such as Humphrey and Waldo.

And of course there are lots of modern names for boys — surname names, place names, and word names — that also qualify as cool and unusual.
