Last week we looked at some rarely used, quasi-unique girls’ names, unearthing such surprising rarities as Amabel, Rosamund and Rosamond, and Eleanora. Today, as promised, we do the same for the boys, presenting a dozen names each that were given to only nine, eight, seven, six or five girls across the country in 2016.
This time around, the choices might not have as much of an unexpected impact, but they are all substantial and usable choices that would definitely make your son stand out.
