25 Unique Boy Names

Discover these unique baby boy names


Are you on the hunt for a unique boy name? When it comes to boys names, a lot of parents stick with the classics—that’s why William, James, and Michael have been among the top boys names for what seems like forever. And then there are the trendy baby boy names like Noah, Aiden, and Liam, which are super popular. But there are also plenty of unique boy names to choose from.

Almost all of the names here have cracked the Social Security Adminstration’s top 1000 boy names for 2018. That means they are not totally obscure, other parents are choosing from these boy names as well but we think they are uncommon enough to be cool.

Topping our list is Titus, which was the name of the Roman emperor. It means protector or defender, and 1,300 parents picked it for their baby boy in 2018. Hey, compare that with the nearly 20,000 Noahs who arrived that year!

Quentin, whose variations include Quinton or Quintin, is another unique choice. It means “the fifth.”

Love the Beatles? Consider Lennon for your baby boy (moms of girls are also picking this one).

The name Cassius has started creeping up the charts. We’re wondering if the passing of Muhammad Ali, aka Cassius Clay, earlier this year, will lead to a boom in babies named Cassius. It was used just 401 times in 2018.

Cairo hasn’t inched into the top 1000 most popular boy names yet. Could you help put the moniker inspired by the Egyptian city on the (name) map?

Here’s our complete list of 25 unique boy names that you don’t hear every day.
