Unique boy names welcome!

[name_f]My[/name_f] fiancé and I found out yesterday that we’re having a baby boy! We had originally decided on [name_m]Oliver[/name_m] to be his name, but now we’re second guessing as it’s becoming increasingly more popular. So, now we need help! We’re looking for unique names that aren’t too ‘out there’ but also aren’t used frequently. The middle name will be [name_u]James[/name_u] or [name_m]Andrew[/name_m], after a dearly loved passed relative. Thanks!

Congratulations!

If you like [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], how about the very similar (but much more uncommon) [name_u]Oleander[/name_u]? It’s a nature name too and could also be [name_u]Ollie[/name_u] for short (or even [name_m]Leo[/name_m]).

Or…

Most of the ones I’ve thought of were listed, so I’ll just add to what’s already here:

  • [name_m]Oren[/name_m] - (Hebrew) laurel or pine tree - familiar like [name_u]Owen[/name_u], yet not seen as often*
  • [name_m]Orin[/name_m] - (Hebrew, Irish) variation of [name_m]Oren[/name_m] & [name_m]Oran[/name_m]*
  • [name_m]Oran[/name_m] - (Aramaic or Irish) light or pale little green one*
  • [name_m]Omri[/name_m] - (Hebrew) my sheaf
  • [name_m]Todd[/name_m] - ([name_f]English[/name_f]) fox

*[name_m]Oren[/name_m]/[name_m]Orin[/name_m]/[name_m]Oran[/name_m] could all use the nn [name_u]Ori[/name_u] (Hebrew) my light

I like [name_m]Oliver[/name_m]! If you really want to use it, go for it, regardless of the popularity. Nicknames can always be used incase he runs into more [name_m]Oliver[/name_m]’s at school. [name_m]Oscar[/name_m] is a good suggestion.

What about [name_m]Octavian[/name_m]? That reminds me a bit of [name_m]Oliver[/name_m], while being much more unusable, but utterly usable!
