Unique Baby Names for 2020

You may know you’re expecting a boy or a girl in 2020, or you may be looking forward to a surprise, but either way, name picking is never easy. 

Many parents wish to choose a name that has meaning, and others just want a good name that will serve their child in life. With so much pressure on choosing that perfect name for your precious newborn, you may be wondering where to start. 

To help guide you in choosing a unique baby name for your bundle of joy, we’ve listed some of the unusual names set to become popular in 2020. 

Gray 

As a gender-neutral name Gray, (or Grey), is set to become popular for parents that wish to ensure their child isn’t brought up around traditional stereotypes. 

The name Gray originates from the meaning of calm and serene, and it tends to be more popular for a girls name than a boys name. It’s also a great change from the more traditional vibrant colour names such as Violet or Scarlet. 

River 

The name River has seen a comeback over the past year, especially with more online influencers taking the name for their little ones. For example, Vlogger Fleur De Force named her daughter River back in 2018. 

While traditionally used for boys, the name River can also be used for a girl. 

We also think this name is ideal for an easy-going baby who is destined to go with the flow. 

Avery

The name Avery derives from the Old English word for ‘ruler of the elves’. If you’re into mystical creatures, then this could certainly be the name for your little one. 

While Avery has traditionally been a boys name, Avery has also become quite popular as a girls name, especially as it makes for a more unique alternative to the popular girl's name ‘Ava’. 

Blair

We can’t hear the name Blair without thinking of glamour queen and iconic Gossip Girl character Blair Waldorf. But Blair was once a name mainly used for boys. Since the rise of the name in the iconic series, Blair has become more popular as a girls name. 

The name Blair is of Scottish origin, meaning ‘dweller of the plain’. Which means it’s perfect for couples that love the great outdoors. 

Indigo 

Derived from the Greek word for ‘Indian dye’, indigo is reminiscent of a deep blue-purple hue that often signifies royalty. 

According to 1970s New Age theory, children who were believed to possess supernatural abilities were often referred to as ‘indigo children’, giving the name a much more mysterious edge. 

Remi

If you’re a lover of all things French, Remi is the french name for oarsman. However, it’s growing in popularity as a boys name for parents who want their child to stand out from the crowd. 

As a short name, and simple to spell, it is a great name that combines simplicity with an edge - very Parisian indeed.
