Idaho’s annual report also includes a section called “Selected Unique Baby Names, Yewneek Baybee Spellings,” which is rather awesome.
Here are the handpicked oddballs of 2012:
Unique Girl Names
Unique Boy Names
Alixathymia, Aunastasha, Beloved, Blessing, Britannica, Burdyn, Challyss, Echkoe, Exodus, Harlequinn, Idalyz, Killary, Lulubell, Lyrica, Mercy, Miracle, Mystic, Noble, Oasis, Pearadice, Savvy, Secret, Sunshyne, Theory, Versailles
Adamant, Arsin, Awesome, Cactus, Captain, Chipper, Cross, Denym, Dually, Dynamic, Falchion, Glacier, Kasteel, Kazys, Krozlee, Lock, Mehdiullah, Mogley, Natavious, Nyte, Peregrin, Pilot, Torque, Truce, Wild
Alixathymia – Part name, part medical condition.
Adamant – Synonym for stubborn. Or an Adam Ant reference. Or both.
Burdyn – “Burden”? Really?
Cactus – A nature name I’ve never seen before.
Dually – Rosamund Pike should pick this for kid #2. (Her firstborn is “Solo.”)
Falchion – A type of sword. (Do they talk about falchions on
Game of Thrones?) Glacier – There’s a
Glacier in Quebec as well. Killary – This would make a great roller derby name! So would Hellga the
American Gladiator name. Truce – Nice to see a name that promotes cooperation/peace instead of conflict/anger (like
Rebel, Fury, Rage, Rowdy, Savage, and so on). Truce reminds me of Armistice. Speaking of armistice… Versailles – It’s a pretty word, but what percentage of Americans can spell it correctly? Or even pronounce it?
And, since I never wrote about the Idaho baby names of 2011, I’ll throw in the unique names from that year as well:
Unique Girl Names (2011)
Unique Boy Names (2011)
Asma, Ajla, Bandana, Birdie, Candelaria, Cinderella, Courage, Disney-Gin, Elphaba, Jerzi, Kaymin, Khryztale, Kyraeveryn, November, Rainbow, Rockee, Rogue, Ropeer, Satchel, Soliscity, Temperenz, Thunder, Trypzee, Winter, Xxoie
Adakiss, Aegis Orion, Beauxdarin, Bluesky, Cinch, Coyote, Dagr, Deevo,
Diggory, Doc, Eighthin, Flint, Gator, General, Iron, Jayger, John-Wayne, Khryztian, Maverik, Pistol, Pragedis, Rifle, Riot, Slate, Wilderness
Adakiss – Not quite as bad as
Addtakizz. Dagr, Pistol, Rifle, Riot – More weaponry & violence. Lovely.
Deevo – Inspired by Devo? Perhaps. Two references to ’80s music in a single post? Yup.
You must whip it…
Finally, here are earlier lists of
Idaho’s unique baby names (2006 through 2010).
Vital Statistics Annual Report
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution recently compiled several

The one I liked best of all was
Teflon…for the non-stick baby, of course.
There were also many alcohol-related names, such as Bacardi, Chianti, Courvoisier, Michelob, Sangria, Tequila and Tanqueray.
