Long before DH and I were pregnant, we talked about naming a son Wolfgang.

It turned out we had twins, and ended up naming them James (after my Dad) and Bryan (after my grandpa), so I'm not a lot of help!

My boy's name is Jaim. Pronounced like James, without the s sound. We got it from a novel. I've never seen it in any baby name books.

Dd's name is Maev.

Not my son's names, but I love Hugo and Maximo. My current favorite girl's name is Seren, which means star in Welsh which I didn't use for either of my girls either.

I assume you've seen the baby name wizard? There's a book and a website, and you can search for additional names based upon names you already use or names you like.

That being said, unusual boy names that are in my family or names I've considered using:

Severin
Lucian
Graeme

My sons are Kelly and Evan - not unusual (although Kelly is unusual as a boy's name these days).

I have a nephew named Darton, which is definitely unusual, although I'm used to it now.
