24 Baby Names You'll Wish You Thought Of

Hot List 324

baby with sunglassesChoosing 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.

Blanche?Unless you are giving birth to an 80 year old that is absolutely heinous. There's a reason some of these names are rare... They suck!

kelti... kelticmom

I'm not a fan of most of those. My son's name is unique, because his dad is a huge comic book fan, his name is Korvyn. But it fits him. Now one of my coworkers named her daughter Coralie. Normal right? Nope. She INSISTS that it is pronounced "Carly". And gets mad when people say Cor-a-lie. That poor girl. She is going to be correcting people for the rest of her life.

Instead of your daughter having the same name as one of her classmates you'd rather give her one of these names?!

Mason... MasonsMom503

I almost like Pepper... but the rest are awful!

Most of those are dog names.

Yikes...just yikes. I am currently pregnant with baby number 3 and we are having trouble picking out names. This list did not help AT ALL. I don't think I would name a pet one of these names.

Kelso???? Really??? Someone would name their kid after a character that played dumb???

I think people should get as creative and wacky as they like when picking names.... for their dog.
