Finding an uncommon name in 2015 can be quite the challenge. Some find that by choosing names from the past they are able to pick out a name that is no longer common. Others find that by choosing someone that is an inspiration to them that they can use the surname as a first name for their child. If you are looking for an uncommon but still lovely name for your daughter then you have got to check out the following fourteen names.

Haven

I don’t know that I have really heard the name Haven that much but with the popularity of Heaven I think that it is safe to say that this is a great alternative. One great thing about the name is that it means “shelter, place of safety” which is a great thing to be reminded of when you look at your child. Choose a name that shows your everlasting desire to make sure that your child is going to be protected.

Ondine

Ondine will make you think of nature or your garden. This name is very unique and one that you have probably not heard before. The great thing about choosing an uncommon name is that it is going to be original and unique and this name equally fits both of these.

Phoebe

The name Phoebe is one that has been around for a long time. It has never been very popular so it remains an uncommon name. You have probably heard this name a time or two in your life but there is no sign of it increasing in popularity so it should remain rare enough for you. The name Phoebe actually means “the shining one” which I think is fitting of a child.

Reagan

Reagan is a name that means “regal.” This name is a strong contender for unique names but is one that you are probably going to here a little more often than some of the other names on this list. Many people have picked up that this name was uncommon but it seems to be one of the favorites from this list.

Reeve

Reeve is a name that just might give your little girl super powers as you can think about the former superman actor Christopher Reeves. He later became a true superhero that overcame many serious circumstances after an accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. So if you are looking to name your daughter something unique but is still going to give her the power that you hope that she has then this is going to be a great choice for you.

Ruby

A ruby is a precious stone so it is no wonder that the name Ruby means “jewel.” While this is another one of the more common names from this uncommon name list, it does seem to be a name that is rarely heard. It was more popular at one time and tends to be more popular in certain regions.

Saffron

Saffron is a name that you can choose when you want to be reminded of the beautiful fragrant flowers. I will admit that I had never previously considered using Saffron as a name. Now that I have heard it used as a name I think that it is cute and a great choice for someone looking for something that is different.

Savina

Savina comes from Savine which was an ancient tribe in Rome. This name is very unique and one that you are not likely to have heard before. I really appreciate this name and think that it would be an awesome choice for any parent who has been looking for something a little different.

Scarlett

The name Scarlett is another that has been around for a long time. It used to be a pretty common and popular name but it seems that it lost its popularity quite some time ago. Today it is a name that is rarely used but that is what makes it a great choice as an uncommon name. The name Scarlette means “one who bears or wears scarlet cloth.”

Sigrid

What meaning could better for a name for a couple who has been struggling to have a child than “beautiful victory.” If you struggled with infertility and are looking for an uncommon name for your little girl then Sigrid is a great choice. This name is hardly ever heard in the US but remains a great choice for those who are looking for a great name for their daughters.

Summer

The name Summer is another one that used to be quite popular but faded away. This name is one that is still cute and trendy but is uncommon enough that it will be considered unique. The name Summer means “born in the season” so if you are searching for a unique and special name for your daughter this one might not be the best choice for you.

Toni

The name Toni is one that I have heard quite a bit but I realize that it is regional and that in some regions you never hear that name. The meaning is “highly praiseworthy” which I think is beautiful. This name is one that I have not always been fond of but when I saw the meaning I started to fall in love.

Winnie

Winnie is a name that was probably chosen because of the childhood classic Winnie the Pooh. There is no known meaning for this name. It is another name that is really cute and fun and not heard too often. This name is one that you can really fall in love with.

Zoey

The name Zoey is another one that can be regional as well. There are a lot of little girls in some areas that share this cute name that also does not have a specified meaning. However this name is not that popular in all areas so it remains an uncommon name.

Adley

The name Adley is one that can be used for both boys and girls. It is a name that was originated in the US. It is not as popular as a boys’ name and I personally think that it is a much better name for a little girl.

Bronwyn

Bronwyn is a Welsh name that is very beautiful. The name is a form of the more classic name, Bronwen which means “breast” and “white, fair, blessed.” This name is one that you should definitely consider if you are looking for something that is classic.

Danica

Danica is a name that means “morning star” or “Venus.” It has reached some level of popularity because of the popular race car driver who shares the name. The name is a nice strong and classic name for a little girl.

Gianna

In the past few years I will admit that I have heard this name used a few times. This means that it is not quite as uncommon as some of the other names that are on this list. The name is actually a shortened version of the name Giovanna.

Hadlee

I really love the name Hadlee. This unique version of the name Hadley is one of the more popular choices. This name means “heather field” and is a beautiful name for any little girl. I really love this name and think that it is one that you should definitely consider if you want something that is going to be a little more classic than some of the others on this list.

Joslyn

Joslyn is one of those names that you have probably heard on occasion. This name is popular for a number of reasons and is one of the prettiest names on this list of unique names. While the name is still unique is not necessarily uncommon or unusual. You will find that the name originated as part of a surname so there is no real meaning for it.

Laken

Laken is one of those names that you just do not hear. It is very unusual and uncommon. I love that about the name. I also love that the name is a variation of the word lake. So many people have strong connections to lakes which include amazing memories and if this is something that you feel strongly about then you should definitely remember that this name is available for you to use.

Mavis

Mavis is an unusal name that I have not always liked. It used to be more common but it seemed like people chose to stop using it for one reason for another. Even though this was the case, it seems like it is getting more popular now and that more people are choosing the name. It actually is the name of a bird that has been commonly referred to as a song thrush.

Naya

Naya is a name that was traditionally given to both boys and girls in Africa. With that being said I do not think that it sounds appropriate as a name for a boy. Instead I think that this name is perfectly fitting for a girl. The name means “little sister.”

Ophelia

Ophelia is a name that is not seen very often. It is a unique name that is beautiful and one that you are going to be able to love for years to come. I am very big fan of this name and considered it as a name for one of my daughter’s. This name is beautiful and simple while still being elegant and something that is unlike most of the names that you have likely heard. The name means “help.”

Remi

Remi is a unique name that comes from Africa. It is not a common name and only heard on rare occasions in the US. The name is a shortened version of the name Oluremi.

Suri

Suri is a very unique name. It was a very uncommon name until Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes used it as the name for their daughter. This name is actually just the Yiddish form of Sarah and is one of the most popular choices. It is one name that is probably only going to become more common.

Tinley

Tinley is a modern name that is making its way up the ranks in popularity. It is still uncommon at this time but it is not likely to remain uncommon. However it will remain unusual and unique so it is a great name to give your daughter if you want their name to be completely different from other people’s.

Willa

Willa is one of those names that you can’t help but fall in love with for a little girl. It is so cute. Willa is a female version of the name William but I personally think that it is way cuter than others.
