Rare Baby Names

Want a baby name that not common, but also not unheard of? Here’s a huge list of over 1,650 rare baby names!

What’s a “rare baby name”? Here’s how I define it: a rare baby name is one that’s given to roughly 50 babies a year. Specifically, the names below were in the 40-to-60 range in 2015, the most recent year on record. If you think about “50 babies a year” in terms of U.S. states, that would be like 1 baby per state, per year. (In real life, baby names aren’t distributed so evenly across the nation. This is just a way to get a feel for how uncommon the names are.)

Usage levels are always changing, so a name that’s rare today might not be rare five years from now, or even next year. If you’re wondering where a particular name is headed usage-wise, just click on it to see its popularity graph.
