These Baby Names That Just Aren’t In Style

01

We agree that choosing a name for your child is a personal decision but it can also be a very creative one. You can go with so many directions: traditional, unique, family pass-downs, trendy or quriky names.

And knowing that parents put too much effort into baby naming, there are a lot of online and media resources that jumped in on the game. Below you can see a list that categorizes names by criteria such as most popular movie or TV characters for examples.

The most uncommon categories we have seen is “unused”. And of course, that doesn’t mean that your child has a name that is ugly but just less people picked it.

According to this report by WCCO, baby name site Nameberry has compiled a list of 5,000 monikers that didn’t make the cut for 2016.

Among them: Trout, Rudyard, Hiawatha, and Puck. Yes, Puck.  In the list below you can see a sample of names that are barely used.

So if you are in the market for something original in the baby name department, then these names fit the bill. Your child would be carrying one of these names for the rest of his/her life but there might be some schoolyard teasing. And the issue here is pronounciation.

Over all what’s really important is to choose a name that the parents love, find beauty in and has a meaning.

And what’s the worst that could happen? I mean if your child is not in love with his/her name then they could always change it or go by a nickname. What do you guys think?
