Best Cool Unusual Boys’ Names Of 2017
Nobody wants to pick a baby name that’s too trendy and common. A name that four other kids in your little one’s pre-K will also have, that will consign them to a lifetime of referring to themselves as “Will S.” or “Anna B.”
But there’s also a risk to going too far in the other direction. You might end up picking a name that’s so out there that nobody knows how to spell or pronounce it. Or, worse, a name that attracts ridicule from other children.
What most people want, then, is a name that strikes the perfect balance between these poles: A cool, unusual name. It can be a tricky needle to thread. But you’re not in it alone. Here are the 25 cool, unusual boys’ names that we think are the best for right now.
