Hipster baby names have become so popular, they’re not even hipster anymore. Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple, the name game has been changed.
If you’re trying to be original with a hipster baby name, you might as well just give up. Quinn? Forget it—there are fifteen Quinns at school. Axl is blowing up, and even Walnut is taken. We know what you’re thinking—what will become of hipster children if there are no hipster names left to be given?
Have no fear, MooseRoots is here to help. Using data from the Social Security Administration, we were able to rank every single name given in the U.S. in 2014. We’ve scanned pages and pages of the most obscure*, least commonly used names that exist—and selected the most hipster ones to share with you. We didn’t separate by gender, because many of these names could be used for either baby boys or girls.
These baby names, for the most part, are truly unheard of. Most of the names have only been given to 15-20 newborns in the last year, meaning your kid will feel quite special at school.
*For those interested: We specifically looked at names that held a rank in the U.S. between 5,000 and 6,000 in 2014.
