It’s common now for many parents to think outside of the box when choosing a name for their unborn baby.
But some people want their child’s name to be so original, they are determined to find a quirky moniker which really stands out on the school register.
Celebrities today are well known for choosing unique names, but seeking unusual names dates back decades, with new research proving that mums and dads in the 1800s also opted against tradition.
Names website NameBerry has collected the list from births recorded on the Social Security Administration in the US, and we’re not sure many of them would work in 2022.
Here’s their list in full…
Harm – Whilst it may appear striking and a bit threatening at firm, it’s actually a Dutch name that comes from Herman. There were nine baby Harms in 1904.
Man – Yes, it’s of course a boys name and there were five in 1884.
Spicy – Whilst this is probably not one many parents would pick today, five picked it for their newborn daughters in 1883
