To many parents, finding a name that isn't top on the popularity charts is important. Whether they want to convey their baby's inherent uniqueness right from the start, or they simply don't want their child to be one of many with the same name, there are plenty of good reasons to choose a unique baby name that you've never heard of for your child.
Some of the most unique monikers didn't make it past the top 500 last year, which means not many kids have them, upping your chances of the name being more or less "one of a kind." Many of them represent other cultures, have rich meanings, exotic pronunciations, and depth, making them all the more interesting.
As someone whose name was once much more unique than it is nowadays, I can vouch for the desire to have a name that is just your own — one that you don't have to share with hundreds of other people. And although you obviously can't guarantee that a name is completely original (in fact, since it's on this list, it probably won't be), pairing a unique, less popular name with your child-to-be's assuredly unique personality is bound to be the perfect combination.
