    Thank you for sharing the beautiful 60 names for boys and girls. I will choose a few names for my grandson. He is going to be born in the next few months. I love “Mateo” – a gift of God. However, do you have any idea or information about how to choose a name for a boy who was born on a particular day of the week (Monday, Tuesday, ..)? Again, thanks for the great article.

    1. Hi Trirat, i’ve only ever heard of this tradition in Africa where a baby is named based on what day of the week they are born but they don’t put the name on official documents it’s just a name given to every child born on a specific day. I love the name Mateo as well. Good luck on picking your grandsons name. Please come back and let us know what you choose.

    Hi Jen!

    My husband and I were just arguing about names the other day. We typically agree for the most part but on some names we are polar opposites.

    This list is perfect! I’m a huge fan of unusual names. There are a few of my favorites on here and I know my husband will just absolutely love some of them. I personally love “H” names so of course I love Harlow for a girl. It’s just beautiful.

    My husband would love the name Cohen I already know it. I’m so glad you put the meanings on there. It’s nice knowing more about a name. It’s so important! Choosing a name is such a hard aspect of having a baby. I’m so glad I found this list. They’re all so unique. Thanks so much!

    1. Hi Mandy, It’s funny that we always disagree with our spouses over what names are best for a baby. I love H names also, and I also think Harlow is a beautiful name for a girl. But, I also like Cohen. Honestly I think all of the names on this list are nice, it would be hard to choose. I have my favorites but when it comes down to it, we see what name fits best when we see their faces for the first time. Thanks so reading and sharing.

  3. As a Greek, I am proud that a great deal of the names -female and male- have a Greek origin. Zoe and Athena are common names in my country. Greece is full of Nicholas and Alexander. Helectra and Iokasti are my favorite ones, though. I hope you will include them in a future list:-)

    1. Hi Effie, thanks for your suggestions. I will definitely include them on my next list, those names are unique and beautiful as well. I love the name Zoe, it’s my favorite for a girl and Athena is beautiful as well. Thanks for sharing with us.

  4. These are great names, Jen! Thank you for sharing them.
    I gave this list to my friend who is going to have a baby soon (in 2 months). They don`t know yet if it`s a boy or a girl because they wanted it as a surprise. So, when she saw the list, she said for a girl, it`s going to be FAYRE (beautiful), for a boy, it`s going to be ASH (happy).
    Thanks again. All the best!

    1. Hi Hanna, Thanks for sharing my list. I think the names she chose are perfect. Especially Fayre. it’s such a beautiful name. Thanks for reading my blog.

  5. Hey there,

    You have some really cool and cute names on that list.
    I really like Aurora, Ellis, and Kayden. Those sound perfect and are easy to remember. Thanks for the awesome suggestions.

    1. Hi Asen, Thanks for stopping by. Those are very beautiful names, I’m glad you like them. Please come back for more in the future.

  6. I loved so many of these names. Unfortunately I’m past the baby stage but hopefully I’ll have a grandchild some day in the future. I work with children and found many of their names on the list. I like being able to see what their names mean. I was also planning on naming my daughter Ariel, (which is in the list) but chose to all-too-popular Madison instead. Anyway, thanks for the great article. I’m sure many soon-to-parents will find it very helpful.

    1. Hi Tammy, These baby names are so beautiful, i’m glad to see that you found one you like, I like the name Ariel as well but I also like Madison, I almost named my daughter that but ended up going with Nyavah. She’s the only one with her name which I love because we made it up on the spot right after she was born. Thanks for reading and sharing.

  7. I first want to start out by saying the pictures of these babies on this website are beautiful and so precious! So I like the name Aurora for a girl, I have always liked that name for girls because I think it is such a beautiful name. As for a boy it is not on your list but I have always loved the name Caleb (of Hebrew origin, meaning “Whole Hearted.”) I also do like the name Ezra that is on your list for a boy as well; my very good friend named her son that and I loved the name, as it stems from the Bible. I loved her daughter’s name too , which I did not see on your list and that is Mia. Mia is from Latin origin meaning “mine” or “wished-for child.” That was beautiful to me because she had been trying so hard to have a baby, after several miscarriages, and Mia was her first, and she was definitely a wished-for-child! Ezra was her second baby, she had about 4 1/2 years after Mia. Just to show God bless miracles often and gives these angels to us. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful names.


    1. Hi Robert, I love the name Aurora. It’s such a beautiful name for a girl and actually was a name I found from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty. It is fitting for a beauty. I think Mia and Ezra are also really cute names and love the meaning behind Ezra. Thanks for sharing.
