Are you looking for a unique baby boy name that has a cool and edgy sound to it? Good call. Research shows that parents who regret their choice of baby name say it's because their chosen name ended up being too popular. Avoid being a statistic with these great baby boy names that are unique, but not too "out there."
Top Pick: Axel
Danish for "father of peace," the name has been rising steadily, ranking at No. 167 on the top baby names list for boys in 2013. And if you're a big Guns 'N' Roses fan, consider spelling it "Axl."
Top Pick: Otis
Grandpa names have become especially popular for boys lately, as celebrities have picked "old man" names for their baby boys. Bridesmaids actor Chris O'Dowd chose Art (likely short for Arthur), and Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis picked Otis for their son.
Top Pick: Jett
Landing at No. 324 on the top baby names list last year, your son won't be in much danger of being one of many Jetts raising hands in kindergarten. This name comes from the black semi-precious stone (or you can go with jet engine if you're a lover of air travel).
Top Pick: Ashton
The English surname (from the town of Ash) is now the 152th most popular name for boys (with a surge credited to actor Ashton Kutcher).
Top Pick: Walter
Meaning ruler of the army, some may recall the title character Walter Mitty, but most equate the name with Breaking Bad's Walter White in 2015. It was the No. 342 baby boy's name in 2013.
