What makes a baby name underrated? First of all, you won't find these names on top baby name lists or being heard on every playground across the country. In fact, if you are looking for a unique name, check out the Social Security Administration's Top 100 baby name list to make sure your chosen name is not near the top.
Whether you are looking for a cool, preppy name or a more modern sounding name, you are sure to find the perfect moniker for your son or daughter with our baby name guide.
Prestigious baby names

For boys, consider these cool and charming names:
For girls, these names have a preppy and Ivy-League sound to them:
Cool nature names
We love these underrated and earth-friendly baby names. Many of these names are unisex, and can work equally well for a boy or a girl. Whether you call them hippie names or eco-friendly names, we call them pretty darn cool.

We just love the feminine and delicate sound of flower baby names for girls. Most of these names are easy to spell and pronounce, as well. Check out some of our top picks:
Tough guy names
These tough guy baby names for boys are strong and masculine names that will represent your son well throughout his life. As you may notice, names with an “x” or “z” in them have an instant cool and tough sound to them.
Of course, some people would argue that the toughest name of all is Chuck — after Chuck Norris. After all, Chuck Norris beat the sun in a staring contest. Chuck Norris is also the reason Waldo is hiding. Superman owns a pair of Chuck Norris pajamas. (Sorry, I can’t mention his name without a few Chuck Norris jokes thrown in!)
