Unusual boy and girl baby names

Are you looking for a unique baby name that is edgy and cool? Have fun finding an unusual baby boy name or girl name with our list of weird, yet cool, baby names... that we secretly like.

Weird baby names

We found some unique or weird baby names that are destined to be the coolest names in preschool! Did you love Beyonce’s baby name choice of Blue Ivy, while everyone else was talking about how weird it was? Were you wishing you had thought of the name Seven, after Victoria Beckham named her daughter Harper Seven? Let us help you find a truly unusual baby name!

Short and sassy baby names

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.
