Naming a baby can be tricky, especially if you’re looking for an uncommon name!
For many mummies and daddies, a popular baby name isn’t an option; as someone who was one of four Katie’s in my class at primary school, and who had at least 5 friends called Emma, Sarah and Jessica, I can definitely relate to this!
Cosmopolitan, using data from the The National Office For Statistics, has complied the following lists of the rarest baby names in the UK; if you’re struggling to find the perfect uncommon baby name, these lists might be what you need to see! There were more than 300 names, so Cosmopolitan have picked one name for each letter of the Alphabet.
Rarest names for girls
Rarest names for boys
Is YOUR little one’s name featured on these lists? Which names are your favourite, and are there any you’d balk at? I’m in love with ‘Xyla’ and ‘Emory’.
