|Unique Girl Names||Unique Boy Names|
|Aoss, Bellanie, Cinsmaya, Daphnelia, Eva-Eve, Feberly-Aena, Grey Winter, Himalaya, Imallak, Jiverfa, Kandzy, Luthien Valkyrie, Mirberlie-Hendessa, Nerlandia, Om Shanti, Prindarella, Queency, Rymasse, Sarah Believe, Thrinity, Vireldis, Westerlyn, Yzis, Zulivia||Aliocha, Bienfait, Clovis Ludovic, Derda, Evanel, Flash Wilder, Gavner, Hollywood, Igor Rugwiro, Jelijah, Keo-Archibald, Ludwig-Thoddy, Myozion, Nash Yango, Onder, Pasko, Qalingo, Romerick, Seigneur, Smile, Surprise, Tommy Gunn, Valois, Wishley Jason, Yom Tov, Zyan Clyde|
(I usually limit myself to one name per letter, but there was no way I could choose between “Seigneur,” “Smile” and “Surprise” on the boys’ list.)
Possible explanations for some of the above:
- Himalaya, the mountain range in Asia (means “abode of snow” in Sanskrit)
- Om Shanti, the salutation/chant (shanti means “peace” in Sanskrit)
- Aliocha Schneider, Canadian actor (born Nicolas Schneider)
- “Bien faire,” French for “do well”
- Seigneur, originally a French title referring to a feudal lord
- Tommy Gunn, short for Thompson submachine gun
- Yom Tov, the Jewish greeting (shortened from yamim tovim, “good days,” referring to Jewish holidays)
(I posted more of Quebec’s unique baby names over on Patreon.)
In 2017, the top two names were the same.
