Nowadays, a lot more parents are looking to unique boy names to help their little sons stand out from the crowd. Fifty years ago, the Top 20 boys’ names represented 41% of all male children; by contrast in 2015, the Top 20 boys’ names were given to only 14% of baby boys.

Ironically, the greater variety of names being used today means that unique names for boys are more likely to be accepted at school or in the workplace. And a greater variety of unusual names given to a higher percentage of boys underpins values such as creativity and diversity.

There are lots of ways for names to be unique, from spelling to new creations, but here at Nameberry we’re often most inspired by those names which are at once unusual and yet filled with history and meaning.  Here is a selection of our current favorites, including boys’ names that are Biblical, mythological, international– and simply wonderful:
