Although I am not expecting, I always love learning new and unique baby names. It’s amazing knowing that the name that we give our little ones is one of the most important decisions we can make for them.
When naming all three of my kids, I wanted to make sure that we used family names. With my oldest daughter, it was very easy for me. My youngest daughter presented a challenge because here weren’t as many girl family names that I was absolutely in love with. My son is the fifth in a long line of boys on my husbands side of the family, so while his name didn’t pose much of a challenge, his nickname was hard for us to come by.
Nameberry, a site that is all things baby names, just released their list of top baby names for 2014 so far. Whenever these lists are released I always hope that my kids’ names don’t make the list because I don’t want to run around hearing everyone else with their same name. I tend to like more unique and unusual names.
Nameberry picked their top 100 names for both boys and girls based on the number of visits each name got on their website, not what parents are actually naming their children. I must say that I am completely surprised with most of the names on this list because they are names are aren’t heard of very often. It goes to show that I am not the only parent that likes a more unique name for my little ones.
Here are the top 10 names for boys and girls of 2014 so far. For the entire list, visit the Nameberry website.
