25 Cool and Unusual Baby Boy Names – 2018


​Giving a boy the name he will carry for the rest of his life is an amazing honor, but can be quite unnerving when you have no idea where to begin! One regret many parents have is when they discover the chosen name was one that many kids got that year.

Unique, But Not Too Weird
