Finding a unique name for your newborn son or daughter isn’t a walk in the park, as nearly every other name you can think of is already taken. Every parent wants a name that’s fairly uncommon but still fancy enough to make their boy or girl stand out from the crowd.
But without conducting your due diligence, you might find yourself naming your child after a historical or mythical villain. Worse yet, you could settle for a name that’s of the opposite gender, subjecting your kid to constant ridicule as he/she grows up.
