I totally have a unique name and it was horrible for me ( teachers couldn’t say it or spell it, kids kept making fun of me) I had to give myself a nickname, save your child the time
I have a friend that wrote the book on unique names. She had a lot of kids. She started with Chisholm Trale for her first girl. Then came Cassiopeia. Then Persophne… Then came Prairie Frier. Her girls ended with Malibu and Sky Blue. Many boys too.

Shy children tend to hate unique names because it causes some attention they may resent. Bold children may enjoy them. Good luck.
