25 Gorgeous & Unusual Baby Names That Work for Boys or Girls


Choosing a name for a new baby is a huge responsibility, and many of us are loving the feeling of a gender-neutral name. These androgynous names are also so lovely, and many have a very unique quality. Not only are these names great for those who choose not to know the sex of their child until birth, but they also seem to lend their meaning truly to the child born to this name. These names have the magical ability to all feel creative and yet down-to-earth.

Finding a baby name can be a challenge. We want a name that won't just sound good today, it needs to sound good in the future too. And we also don't want a name that only sounds good for children, because as sad as it makes us, one day our kids are going to grow up and they will need a name to match who they will be when they are adults. 

So what is the best game plan to ensure that baby will grow up to have a great first name? Why not try something off the beaten path? Unusual names are perfect. They don't sound completely overused today, so they will most likely sound perfect in the future!
