Rarest girls names

If it’s a really unique or unusual baby name choice you want for a little girl, we have searched through the 1000s of names that Bounty mums have chosen so far this year to bring you some inspiration for a name with an edge that certainly won’t be common in the playground. 


Despite traditional names being a popular trend for girls' names, there are still some names that have slipped through the popularity net and could be an unusual choice but in-keeping with a national trend.

Bunty is a name chosen by less than a handful of parents this year and is associated with the 1950s as was the name of the popular magazine of the time for girls. An affectionate name years ago for Virginia, Ginnie is an unusual traditional choice today.

Another unusual choice for girls is Rebel which is bound to be inspired by Australian actress Rebel Wilson who starred in Pitch Perfect and also appeared in Bridesmaids.
