Popular names or unique names?

Baby name Quiz results

Mostly As: UNIQUE

You are special, and the last place you'll look for a baby name is the current "Most Popular" list. Your little one is unique and special like you and his/her name should reflect that. Your kid won't be one of a dozen Emilys on the block. Create your own name, reverse a name (Nevaeh instead of Heaven) or make it unique with an unusual spelling (Eric would become Eryk).


Mostly Bs: TRENDY

You're a pop-culture expert who's always up on the latest news and fashions. You're friends look to you for what's contemporary and trendy. Giving your baby a trendy name is fabulous way to document the his/her birth year. Look for names in the news (Knox and Vivienne, anyone?), in the movies (Bella and Alice ring a bell?), or on the pop charts (Miley and Justin – as in Bieber)!


Mostly Cs: POPULAR

You have a lot of friends. You want your child to fit right in too, and having a common, popular name is a good start. Check out the annual Social Security Administration's Most Popular Baby Names list to find a name for your little social butterfly. Boy names topping the charts last year included Jacob, Ethan, Michael and Alexander. The most popular girl names were Isabella, Emma, Olivia, Sophia and Ava.


Mostly Ds: EXOTIC

You're not ordinary, so why would you give your baby an run-of-the-mill name? Your child needs a name that is striking, unusual and completely out of the ordinary. You want to look for names from abroad and names that are colorful, striking, glamorous and maybe even a little bizarre. Jovana, Dafina and Kenyatta are exotic girl names, while exotic boy names include Aamir, Dragan and Einar.
