There are plenty of factors that go into choosing the right name for your baby, but sometimes it all boils down to whether you want to go with a tried and true name, or one that's all about originality. If you're looking for a baby name that's uber unique, there are plenty of overlooked baby names that wont' be found on any Top 10 list, but might just top your list.
Choosing an original moniker means you'll be setting your kid up for a lifetime of, "Oh, that's such an interesting name!" — which, in my opinion, is a gift. In elementary school, I was one of three Katies in my grade, and I found it a little demoralizing. If someone called out my name, three of us would respond. Naturally, I was envious of the kids who had one-of-a-kind names that stood out on any class list.
If you have some baby names already on your shortlist, and want to ensure that they really are as "undiscovered" as you think, check out the list of Most Popular Names by Decade compiled by thethe Social Security Administration (SSA). The 18 names below won't be found on that list either!
