If you like drinking your slow drip coffee out of a jam jar, this list is definitely for you.
20 Quirky Baby Names
Onyx – Basically, the name my son would be called if my husband let me.
Ziggy – The letter Z is all the rage.
Zen – Letter Z, so hip.
Atticus – I feel like a baby with this name would come out with a beard.
Zee – Can’t think of a name? Just use the coolest letter of the alphabet.
Zeus – Again, a bearded baby is what I think of. Plus, letter Z.
Nix – Can also be Nixon.
Magnus – A very strong name, probably will grow up to be CEO of a company.
Ignatius – Another strong name. But imagine trying to spell it in Kinder. Nickname – Iggy
Tatum – Seems quite gender neutral but it does make us think of Channing, so we like it.
October – If May and April can be used, why not October?
Jupiter – Because Uranus is too mainstream.
Zoa – Letter Z, so cool.
Clementine – Clem for short, this name has gone full circle.
London – Calling your baby a place is all the rage these days.
Beau – Typically a boys name, switch it up and it becomes cool.
Juniper – Can be nicknamed June, although Juniper is very fun to say.
Tiggy – Reminding me of beautiful model, Twiggy, I love this name.
Byron – Usually a boys name but it sounds stronger on a girl.
Wilhelmina – This one would be hard to spell for a child, maybe shorten to Willow?
There you have it. Some of the quirkiest names to probably hit your ears. And in fact, I would use any of these names for my children.
