Choosing the name for an expected baby is tons of fun, and if you're like me, you are probably considering not so common baby names. Your child will be an individual, so having a name that is common may make him blend in with the crowd a little bit. While choosing a name that isn't heard too often is great, selecting a name that is way out there may cause confusion and well, just sound silly! Instead, consider some of the not so common baby names that aren't too off the wall and you'll score a winner. Here are 11 to consider:
One of my very favorite not so common baby names is Carter. It's usually heard as a surname, but it certainly works as a first name. It has a strong sound to it and it will really give the person who dons the name a strong sense of presence. This is one of those names that sounds great for a baby, a child and an adult. Oh, and FYI, I would use this as a name for a boy, though you could certainly use it for a girl if you like.
