What makes a baby name unique or edgy? They are names that you won't find at the top of the baby name lists. These baby boy names may not fit into a particular category, but they are unique and cool and are the perfect fit for hip and modern parents.

You can also invent your own name by combining your and your husband's names -- or even using your maiden name as a first name. This is a great way to not only find a cool, edgy name, but to pass down a family name to your son.
