Top 20 rare baby names for 2024 includes some very unusual entries


Parents are reportedly looking for a more unique name for their child with names such as Snowdrop and Luxury seeing a spike in 2024.

The trend is seemingly being led by the stars of television, film and the celebrity world.

Kylie Jenner made waves by naming her newborn Aire, while Ed Sheeran chose Jupiter Seaborn for his latest addition, following the unique Lyra Antarctica for his first. Meanwhile, actress Gal Gadot opted for Ori for her little one.

Mark Kowalczyk, the brains behind Special Moment, has dished out predictions on the rare names tipped to hit it big this year, reports the Mirror.

Mark said: “Names like ‘Yael’, ‘Elio’, and ‘Elodie’ showcase a global influence, reflecting a modern parent’s world view. Meanwhile, names like ‘Snowdrop’ and ‘Luxury’ push the boundaries of traditional naming conventions, signalling a bold and artistic approach. Names like Marlon, Royal, and Atticus have an elite touch, making them striking choices for parents looking for something grand. While Elsa, Ophelia, and Starlette exude a whimsical charm, perfect for a baby girl.”

“Hollywood and cultural influences play a significant role, but ultimately, it’s about parents wanting to give their child a singular start in life with a name that stands out in both sound and substance.”

Here are the monikers that will likely be a hit with new parents in 2024:

  1. Halo
  2. Marlon
  3. Yael
  4. Kanan
  5. Aire
  6. Kai
  7. Elio
  8. Myles
  9. Royal
  10. Atticus
  11. Maleah
  12. Ori

  14. Snowdrop
  15. Kahlani
  16. Elodie
  17. Lara
  18. Luxury
  19. Eloise
  20. Aviana

Meanwhile, a mum who didn’t double-check her favourite baby name before deciding on it has expressed regret over naming her daughter Sigrid, as one of the potential nicknames could make it sound like she’s fond of smoking cigarettes.

In a Reddit post, the mum revealed that she gave birth to her daughter just a week ago, and she and her husband named their little girl Sigrid after struggling to agree on a name they both liked.

However, she wants to use “Siggy” as a nickname – but has now realised it sounds similar to the slang term for a cigarette.

She wrote: “My baby girl is one week old and her name is Sigrid. My husband and I struggled to choose a name. We both had a favourite the other didn’t like – mine was Ottilie and his Aubrey.

“Etta was our compromise name, but he soon went off it after birth. He mentioned Sigrid and I thought I liked it and agreed. Now I’m worried she will get bullied for it sounding like cigarette.

“My husband loves the nickname Ziggy or Siggy. Could Sisi work (pronounced Ceecee? ) Also, we’re not Scandinavian, although we both look it and my husband has Danish heritage a couple of generations back.”

The mum confessed that she has since developed a fondness for the name Beatrix and her husband “may be willing” to change their daughter’s name to protect her from possible taunting as she gets older. However, those who responded to her post were quick to reassure her that Sigrid is indeed a splendid name.
