Choosing a baby name is tough stuff. And just when you think you found the perfect name that won't be too popular, along comes a Kardashian or Tina Fey who gives her kid the same name you gave yours. That's what happened to me with my Penelope. It made me cringe because the very reason I chose the name was because it wasn't popular. I'm a Michele and grew up knowing 83,647 other Micheles or Michelles and I didn't want that to happen to my daughter.
If you're looking for a name that you won't hear of anywhere, something a little more rare, then this list is for you. Check out these uncommon baby names, perfect for your unique little one.
