REVEALED: The 100 most unusual baby names of the year

Would you be tempted to use one of these VERY unusual names for your baby boy or girl?

It’s always tough picking out the perfect name for your little bundle of joy, especially with so much pressure to be unique nowadays.

But, thankfully, BabyCenter have done all the hard work for you.

After asking nearly half a million parents for their baby’s name in 2014, the site has compiled a list of the most creative baby names of 2014.

And they made sure that each of the names which feature on the list was given to at least three children.


Looking at the compilation, it seems as if pioneering parents took inspiration from pretty much everywhere, including their favourite bands (hey there, Zeppelin!) and their favourite beverage (people of the world, meet Hennessy!).

There were also a few car-inspired monikers (Audi and Royce made the list), as well as a few fashion brands (Dior) - and plenty more besides.

So, without any further ado, here are some of the most surprising, creative, and uncommon names given to babies in 2014.
