Are you considering a unique baby name? Are you looking for a special name to help your baby stand out from the class.
Unique baby names mean different things to different people. Perhaps you want a traditional baby name that you can bring back in style. Or perhaps a foreign baby name to suit your exotic baby. Some parents these days choose a literally a unique baby name, by making up a new name.

But before you commit to your uncommon baby name, here are three tests you should do to make sure you won’t regret your decision.
Go to the local playground and shout the baby name 5 times. Shout it loud. Be proud. How does it sound? Does it feel good? Don’t worry if people look at you funny. You will be doing this for years to come. So it is a good idea to test it out before committing to the baby name. It may be a bad sign if any dogs come running to you.
Let it stew for a while. I used one potential unique baby name as my email password for a few weeks. Your baby will have to live with this name for a long time, so you should take your time making the decision. Write the name on a piece of paper. Look at the paper each day for a week. If it is your favourite baby name for a whole week running then you love it enough to consider using it.
Ask a few people to read the baby name aloud. This one is especially important if you are making up your own unique baby name or going for something so rare that people haven’t seen it before. Normally I don’t recommend asking for opinions on baby names. So be clear you just want to know how they would pronounce it. If they have trouble pronouncing the name you may need to rethink. If you don’t want to reveal your unique baby name idea to family and friends before the baby is born you could ask your hairdresser or dentist.
Obviously all the usual baby naming tips also apply to uncommon names. Check the initials to make sure they don’t spell a bodily function. Search the Internet for the name to make sure there isn’t an ax-murdering-porn-star. Does the name work with the last name?
I recommend keeping a top ten name list while you are pregnant. Then on the day the baby arrives you can see what suits them.
And the most important tip – enjoy naming your baby!
