September 26, 2019

I know you came here for an extremely uncommon baby boy name and I hope you find one you can't leave behind.

But, since beginning this baby name finding quest, I have encountered some doozies online. Not to say, I don't have patients naming their babies some strange ones. Because I do for sure. Like Star Wars obsessed fans and such, not to knock such fans.

Listen finding baby names for you people is not always easy and not always enjoyable. Some of the names we name our children are downright weird. Like W E I R D!

However, I truly enjoyed this list and feel that these extremely uncommon baby boy names are enjoyable to read and even more wonderful to use for a boy.

Comment and let me know your favorites or if you have a son (or daughter) with one of these names.
