When the time comes to chose a name for your baby-to-be, you're not alone in feeling overwhelmed. Maybe you're avoiding the pressure to choose a family name, or you're wanting to steer clear of the top 100 lists at all costs. Whatever your reasons, choosing an out of the box name for your child is a great way to start them off on a journey of individuality and creativity from the get go. If American names just aren't cutting it for you, why not turn to some of the unbelievably unique and amazing baby names from other countries?
While many popular American names get their roots from other cultures, names you've probably never heard of before are in no short supply. Every country has its own rich history— full of names, legends, traditions, and culture.
Regardless of whether or not your family hails from somewhere outside the States, choosing a name from another country is a great way to bring new traditions to your family, learn more about other cultures and give your child a name that, more than likely, none of her friends will have. So do yourself a favor and choose a name that takes the stress and pressure off of you and will make your child stand out from the crowd.
