A couple of months ago, we blogged about names that were given to only ten babies in all of the US in 2016. Well now, for all you popularity-phobes and unique-freaks, we’re prepared to go even further and edge even closer to the absolutely unique –short of making up a new name or spelling.
Here we present a dozen names each that were give to only nine, eight, seven, six or five girls across the country, and they’re all names that have some history, meaning and are totally usable.
And so Jennifer and Jessica, Ashley and Amanda, here are some names that we can promise will pretty much insure that your daughter will be the only one in her class. (And don’t worry, Mike and Matt—we’ll be doing the same for the boys.)
Given to only 9 girls last year
Given to only 8 girls last year
Given to only 7 girls last year
Given to only 6 girls last year
Given to only 5 girls last year
How about picking one from each of these groups that you would consider using?
