Quirky baby name tips
You won't find many quirky baby names at the top of the popular baby name lists, so try to steer clear of most names in the top 50. Check out our list of the top 100 baby names for reference.
Celebrities have a great track record for finding cool and quirky names. Be inspired by their name choices, but try not to copy them exactly. For example, if you love that Nicole Richie named her son Sparrow, consider naming your son Raven, Skyler or Talon. If you love the name Knox (Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's son), consider the name Dax or Jax.
For more ideas on finding quirky baby names, look at your family tree for great names to pass down to your child. Flip through some of your favorite books for characters' names or think about some of your favorite movies for name inspiration.
