Are you looking for a unique girl names for your baby girl? Want to find a perfect baby name that no-one else in the school playground will have?
Here are 30+ unique girl baby names for you to choose from.
How To Pick An Unique Baby Name Other Babies Won’t Have
While some parents are happy to have pretty but undoubtedly popular names, for others it’s much more important to have a name for their new baby no-one else will have. Everyone remembers having two, three or more children in their class with the same name, don’t they?
If you want a really unusual baby name, a good place to look for unique girls names in the UK is on the ONS Baby Name data list, which records all the names given to three or more babies that year (this is usually released in October, with stats for the previous year).
While the names at the top of the ONS baby name list are likely to have been given out thousands of times – for example Olivia, the most popular name in the UK for 2019 had been given to over 4,000 babies – the names right at the bottom are much more unusual, and have been given to babies the least out of all names in the UK.
Each of the names on our list appears on the bottom of the ONS Baby Name data, meaning each name was given out three times or fewer that year.
It’s not to say that these beautiful rare girls names aren’t great names, just less popular!
Several of these names are also traditionally considered boys names, hence low usage on the girls baby name list, which would make for cute uncommon baby girl names or good gender neutral names.
