What's the most unusual name you would actually use for a boy?

What is the most unusual boy name you would actually consider using for your own baby boy? I need an unusual name for my story, but a name that other moms would use in real life.

Thanks in advance. x

    Well my unusual names that I like are generally all on my guilty pleasures list.

    The one that I'd like to use most:

    -- August

    :) I'd call him Gus for short.

    Also these:

    -- Reid

    -- Cairo (KY-ro)

    -- Flynn

    Well, this is the list of names that I'd consider if I was expecting a boy now, they're all quite unusual:

    Alastair Samuel

    Everett Charles

    Grayson Oliver

    Thaddeus Arthur

    Callaghan Lucas

    William Roscoe

    Nicholas Evan

    Leo Raphael

    Elias Anthony

    Tristan Reid

    Jude Vincent

    Geoffrey Elliott

    My main contenders would be Alastair, Grayson & Callaghan.

    Hope this helps!

  • Wow, I have 2 unusual names I'd actually consider using: Penn and August, but since my dear friend Nikki already said she'd use August, I'll go with Penn.

    Yes, I know a pen is an object, but Penn just sounds so cute to me. Despite it's cuteness, I think it ages quite nicely :)

    Cassius (cass-ee-us, not cash-us) - I think Cass is such a nice nickname


    Finn - not sure how unusual this is though

    Rafe - the traditional pronunciation of Ralph but it makes more sense spelt this way!

    River - this is perhaps a little more common too

    Angel & Bartholomew. They're probably the most unusual ones that I would actually use, although most likely as middle names :).

  • I'm partial to:


    Tucker (I actually really like that one)



    Perhaps Fisher.

    Probably Dominic or maybe Jamison. Neither are very unusual.
