4 Ways To Find Unique Baby Names

Posted on April 12, 2016   |   Comments 

Most parents choose traditional or common names for their child, which is the very reason a traditional name is called a "traditional" name. Isn't your child unique? So, why not use a unique name? If you want to find a unique name for your unique child then read this guide to get you on the right track.


1. Find a common name you like and then think of an alternate and unique way to spell it. There are many tools available online to help you find alternate spellings for common names. Here is an example of how it works: Ashley can be spelled Ashleigh, Ashli, Ashly, and Ashlee.


2. Choose a name from a different origin. Just because the name is common in another country, it doesn't make it common in your country. For example, the name Haleah may be a fairly common Hawaiian name, but in America you probably won't find it very often.


3. Make up a name. A name can be anything you want it to be. You can choose any word you want for a name, such as, Apple, Berry, Unique, Swing, Light, etc. Just keep your baby's best interest in mind when choosing the name.


4. Use an online list of unusual names. There are hundreds of lists available online that offer unusual baby names from every origin. Simply find one you like and choose the name that catches your eye.


When choosing a name for your baby, keep in mind, your baby has to live with that name forever. You can be creative, but imagine yourself with the name. If you would like the name for yourself then chances are that your baby will like it.


Make sure you remember the method you used to find the name. You never know, some day your baby may someday need your method to find a unique name for his or her child.
