A rare name might mean you don’t find many personalised keyboards but it also means you’re unique.

Parents love going for unusual monikers for their babies so they can stand out.

The Office for National Statistics just revealed the most popular baby names in England and Wales right now. And with the list comes the rarest names.

In the interest of protecting kiddos with the most unusual names, ONS only reveals names that at least three babies have.

In the latest data, from 2018, there were 1,342 rare names. Of course, we’re not going to list all of them.

So we’ve picked one name from each letter that stood out to us (omitting letters for which there are no names).

Expectant mums and dads, you might want to write these down if you want a name that few others have.

If you don’t want people butchering a unique name you’ve carved out for your child, perhaps you’d be more interested in the more popular ones.

We hear that baby names from the early 1900s and 1920s are making a comeback in 2019.

But if you insist on any of the names mentioned, remember that there are at least three children out there with the same moniker.

One thing we’ve noticed from the list is that some of the names are traditional but spelled in an unconventional way.

Lucas becomes Louces. That’s one way to stand out with having to reiterate your name three times before someone gets it right.

So, back to the drawing board?
