For those who want a classic sounding name that isn't too popular, these names are similar to some very common names but are much less frequently chosen, and in many cases they have their own, cool spin.
|Amalia||Amelia is actually the anglicized version of this German name.||Arden||Similar to but less overused than Aiden, it means "great forest".|
|Annabel||Down home country alternative to Isabel and Isabella.||Benedict||Really cool alternative to Benjamin.|
|Charlene||Out of the top 1000, this criminally underused name is a great alternative to Charlotte.||Crispin||Alternative to Chris, has never cracked the top 1000 names|
|Eliza||Interesting alternative to the uber-common Elizabeth.||Davis||Alternative to David.|
|Helena||The capital of Montana is an appealing alternative to the capital of Wisconsin, and far less common.||Dolan||Less trendy alternative to Dylan or Nolan.|
|Livia||Far less common than Olivia.||Jace||Space age alternative to Jason.|
|Phoebe||Far less common than Zoe and Chloe and at least as cool.||Malachi||Biblical name with cool nickname ("Mal") still well out of the top 100 boy names.|
|Teagan||At #213, but be careful because this name is on the rise! For the time being, less common alternative to Megan meaning "little poet".||Stefan||Scandinavian version of Stephan, pronounced stef-FIN.|
|Xander||21st century alternative to Alexander.|
