So you've got a wee one on the way and you're looking for a name as unique as your new baby is going to be, am I right? Well check out this great list of offbeat names for I've created just for creative moms and dads-to-be like you. A lot of these names are form lists I made when thinking of names for my two tots and some inspired by my favorite celebrity kid names and some are from the top of my head.
Yes, some of these names are "out there" and I've gotten a lot of hateful comments about this post (that's why comments are disabled) but what do you expect from a post called THE ULTIMATE LIST OF ALTERNATIVE BABY NAMES?
If you like the names. Awesome! If you don't, that's cool too. To each his own!
Now on to the names:
I didn't bother to separate the names by gender as many of these can work for both boys and girls.
