If you are looking for something to name your baby that will not confuse your child with other children (if you name your child a popular name, then you might mix him/her up with many other children their age and gender because many other children his/her age and gender will have the same name as him/her), then this list is for you. Though keep in mind that you will not like all those names (maybe not any of those names for some people).

Most of the names listed below are names that were once popular, but not anymore. As of this decade (2010's), most of the people with many of the names listed below are over the age of 40.

15 Rory

I believe Rory is a very underused name in today's generation. In all honesty, I just remembered the name when I was reading a story on Wattpad (His At Night (His #1) by bourbonvanilla *Please read*). If I could change my name, I would change it to Rory. But noo, I got stuck with Janae.
