Good luck convincing him!

I personally am thrown off if one child in a family has a more unusual name, but it's your family so you do you is what I say!

I like less trendy names (mostly brainwashed by my mother who is a teacher so says don't have a name where there will be 3 of them in the class of 25) but DH is way more traditional. He and his brothers all have names that have been in the top 25 in the U.S. for like 100 years, lol!

I love unusual names. I've been stalking this board for a while now, trying to find a boy name I like. For boys, I'm leaning towards biblical names, which my DH doesn't like so much.

If our first was a boy, we would have went with Jude, but now, my DH doesn't like it anymore.

LOL minties, that's hilarious. My husband has a friend who's daughter is called Athena ... I can't remember her other children's names but I know one is called Phoenix.

I find it funny when you Google 'unusual names' you always seem to end up with all the popular names, or names celebrities have called their children

I like original names! I am not very creative at coming up with names myself, but when I hear a name that I've never heard before, I usually end up thinking it is pretty! I recently heard the name Adair for a little boy and I thought that was kinda neat. I think the meaning was supposed "from the oak tree ford."

That being said, I think our baby will probably have a more traditional name. I think my husband would worry to much about him or her being teased in school!

This is what my husband thinks, but I think children can tease others for any reason (they just plain make them up half the time and don't require anything obvious)

My girls' first names are a little uncommon but not unusual. They are Emilia (Emi) and Nina.

Their middle names are a little offbeat, though. They are japanese names (I am Japanese - they are half).

Emilia Hikari and Nina Etsuko

Hikari is Hee-kah-ree and Etsuko is E-tsoo-ko.

I got lucky because we both love unusual names!

Even though I like them, it still took me about 3 days to warm up to my sonís name, Odin, when my husband first brought it up.

Now itís trying to find something equally awesome for our future baby lol which I am hoping is a girl! I donít necessarily have to name them something thatís out there.. just something I donít hear all of the time is nice!

I like some of the names in this thread.. I might have to write them down haha

Amykai, I absolutely love that you have Japanese middle names, I love Japanese names. There's always something kind of magic about them. I also like that you have those names together, they sound really good

EMSwife, it must be marital bliss when you both have the same name opinions lol my husband and I could argue about this until the cows come home (not seriously argue). Odin is a cool name do you have some ideas for a girl?

I'm hoping we have twins, that way it will be fair if we name one each lol

Ooo I’m jumping in on this to hopefully get some ideas.
Hubby is set on Atticus but I can’t quite wrap my head around that one yet. Hoping for something out there that I love too!

Hmmm ... I haven't heard that name before. But it kind of reminds me of attic? Like 'I'm getting the treeus (Christmas tree) from the atticus'. I have a weird brain.
Did he make it up or is it an actual name? What does it mean? However, I don't allow my husband's opinion of Eurus/ur-anus put me off. I like that Atticus is original
