My friend is contemplating names for her new baby due in coming weeks. She is not sure of the gender and asking around for some unique baby names. Have you come across any interesting and unique choices in baby names?

I have heard many babies named some of the older and traditional names, such as Abigail and Henry, but they may not be unique.
Friends who had babies of late had some cute names for the little ones, such as:
I was also surprised to see my grandmother's strange and very old name, Luella, pop up on a unique baby name list of late.
I hope that your friend is having fun finding a name for their child. What an exciting time for them.
A baby is a wonderful blessing and naming a baby is very important because it will be hers for the rest of her life. In naming babies, I suggest the couple take time and think about the baby's name. They should sit down and discuss what name should be given to their child. Some relatives will be suggesting names but at the end of the day, the mother and the father will be the ones to decide.
More than the uniqueness of the name, I suggest the couple look into the meaning of the chosen name. Look into its spelling and pronunciation as well. It may sound petty, but the name's meaning, spelling, and pronunciation are very important because the child will have to carry it with him or her.
A baby's name should spark happiness not only in the parents but also in the child himself eventually. So, tell your friend to think about it, and enjoy this part of parenting.
We combined a few family names to help name our children...we thought it was fun and unique. For example, Harley + Hanlon = Harlan. Maiden and other family names are always a great way to honor someone and do something unique.
Some other unique names that we have come across are: Yancy, Aida, Breck, Langley, Remi, Dell, and Leif.
Congratulations to your friend. If she is looking for a name that can be either a boy or girls name, there are many lovely names including Blake, Ryan, Morgan, and Cameron that they could consider. Some place names also make unusual first names such as Jordan, Aspen, or Austin.
Some parents combine their names or look for an unusual name in their family tree when naming their kids. Working regularly with younger kids though, I would always advise parents to consider whether unusual spellings or strange pronunciations might prove challenging once their kids head off to school. Individuality and uniqueness are important for many parents, but they should always consider whether their child might be teased or bullied if their names are too different.
