Uncommon Baby Names 2017

The Most Uncommon Baby Names Given in 2017 That You'll Be Obsessed With

Although it can seem like every kid you meet these days is named Noah or Olivia, there are, in fact, tons of other babies out there who receive less common names that are absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking to go off the beaten path when it comes to your baby's name, there are thousands of baby names that were given in 2017 — according to the over 500,000 names BabyCenter sifted through from users this year — that may not have broken into any top charts, but you'll be totally obsessed with all of them (I'm obviously biased toward the first girl's name, but they're all beautiful).

Scroll through for our favorites for both girls and boys (though most skew gender-neutral, if we're honest) and let us know: will you go unique or mainstream with your baby's name?
