More people than ever before are on the hunt for unusual names for girls. 

It's entirely subjective how far new parents-to-be want to go with the boundaries of what makes a unique name, with increasingly rare names being used to gain that special individuality right from the start of life.

For some, a traditional boys name used on a girl is desirable. For others a seemingly random noun or place name like the ones used by Kim and Kanye fit the bill. They share daughters North and Chicago, and sons Saint and Psalm.

The baby girl names listed below might be run-of-the-mill for some and beyond wild for others.

Whichever side of the unique name fence you sit on, its worth at least a cursory glance. You never know, one of these unique names might leap out at you and steal your heart.
