Quirky baby name tips

A quirky name is unique, so steer clear of those names that are at the top of the Social Security Administration's popular baby name list, including Isabella, Sophie, Emma, Olivia and Ava. Moms, look at your maiden name for a potential first name for your baby girl. Flip through some of your favorite books for quirky name inspirations (Ramona, Amelia).

Celebrities have a knack at picking quirky baby names. However, you should try to avoid copying their exact name because the name is so well-known. For example, the name Apple is undoubtedly quirky. However, if you name your daughter Apple, you better be prepared for the question, "Oh, like Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter?" Let their choices inspire you, instead. For example, perhaps you can have a little Peach.
