Anything but traditional: 10 boho baby names all trendy parents will love

Well, they won't have to share their name with anyone.

While some parents value tradition and custom when it comes to picking a name for their newborn, more and more parents are shunning old-school names for more modern and unusual-sounding monikers.

Inspired by music or nature or maybe a trip somewhere, some parents opt for more boho-sounding baby names, and trust us – there are some really lovely ones to pick from.

Here are 10 boho baby names we think sound all sorts of lovely, while still actually sounding like names someone would actually have:

1. Deja

Deja is a French word for something that has happened or was seen before

2. River

River is a fashionable name inspired by nature. Jamie and Jools Oliver opted for the moniker for their baby #5.

3. Saffron


Saffron, the most expensive spice in the world, also makes a rather lovely girls' name, no?

4. Kai

This exotic Hawaiian baby name has been gaining popularity lately.

5. Calliope

The Greek goddess of epic poetry had a fantastic name, and we reckon hip, young parents are going to approve.

6. Cove

Inspired by summer, beach time and surfing, we think all boho parents will love this boy name.

7. Allegra


Allegra is Italian for happy, and artsy people will recall the music tempo allegro and the literary term allegory.

8. Ziggy

Ziggy is definitely a name that embodies everything bohemian.

9. Story

Story is a lovely name, and sounds free-spirited enough so that all boho parents will approve.

10. Wilder

While it used to be an English surname, more and more parents are using Wilder as a first name for their boys these days.
