Unique Names Day 2020

March 3rd is a day to celebrate unique names from around the world. As one the more light-hearted awareness and for-absolutely-no-real-reason days this is rather a nice one (beaten only by Sneak a Zuccini onto your Neighbour's Porch day and International Talk Like a Pirate day).

I love to hear stories about how parents have decided on the names for their children, after all it is a BIG decision as your child will (most likely) keep that name for life and it has to be one that 'fits'. Lots of parents don't decide on a name until they have met their new baby to see what name they suit. Others have names in mind very early on. I know when I was expecting my son I had decided on the name by around 25 weeks but we didn't share the name with anyone until after he was born. Jacob, however, is certainly not a unique name but it was one we could both agree on at least!

I've met so many beautiful little ones in the last 10 years and some of them have had some names that I have never heard of before and every single one of them has suited their name. Some of them have a story to why they have chosen the names they have, others just liked the way they sounded and some have actively hunted for unusual names, the one thing they all have in common is how absolutely wonderful they are - no matter how unique or popular they may be!


Some of the more unique names of children I have seen over the last 10 years include Cosima, Zephy, Kylo-Rome, Apollo, Ezra, Tabitha, Berry, Kavarlli-Rae, Aries, Ebony, Eden, Nellie, Pandora and Roman to name but a few.
