Can we talk about the difference between trendy baby names and unique baby names?
It doesn't seem like there would be a huge departure between the two, but there is a big distinction: Trendy names can totally lead to baby naming regret when the trend dies off, whereas a thoughtfully unique baby name will stand the test of time.
And, yes, baby naming regret really happens to 18 percent of parents, according to a survey done in the U.K. Don't let the regret happen to you — or your child, for that matter. Opt for one of these cool, yet totally unique, names instead.
There is something about a short baby name that instantly ups its cool factor. Shorter names can help balance out a long last name, and are often easy to spell and pronounce — not to mention you won't have to worry about them being turned into some weird nickname.
Bohemian mamas unite! Some people may think these names are a little unusual, but we think they are pretty darn cool. Get out your incense and tie-dye shirt and check out the following cool, hippie baby names.
