It can be tricky to pick the perfect name for your little one – especially if you’re looking for a more unusual moniker.

This has led to parents getting more and more creative when naming their little boy or girl, resulting in some truly lovely names that won’t be on the school register as well as some more unusual choices.

Mums and dads have been sharing the most unique baby names they have ever come across – and, well, they definitely fit the bill.

It all began when one mum asked parents on Netmums the most unusual baby names they had heard at baby group, intending to possibly give parents-to-be some inspiration.

However, things took a bit of a weird turn, with many people just sharing the oddest names they had ever heard.

One mum wrote:

“As far as weird names go my MIL once taught a ‘Raspberry’ and I met a girl at baby groups who had two sons, Bert and Ernie, but I think that’s quite cute!”

Another NetMums user said:

“My niece is called Aquamarine-Melody. Just seems like an average  name now though, I’m so used to saying it.”

A different parent added:

“The worst name I’ve heard so far is ‘Armani’ haven’t a clue what the parents were thinking!”

Someone else commented:

“Not in a baby group but in a shop… a young lady in front of me shouted at her daughters who were being a bit boisterous… ‘L’Oreal! Elvive! Get here now!!'”

Another mum wrote:

“Chlamydia. Yeah. That’s right. CHLAMYDIA.”

Some teachers later began to add the most unusual names they had heard within the classroom.

“I’m a teacher the most unusual name I’m came across was ‘greater-light’,” someone else commented.

“I taught a lovely little girl called Bliss. She was so sweet but not sure how that’s going to work as an adult. I find the girls have stranger names that the boys in my school,”another teacher added.

Another names that made the list include:

  • Gypsy-Angel
  • Champagne
  • Pisces
  • Cinderella
  • Huckleberry
  • Trafford
  • Magic
  • Sparkle
  • Negan
  • Diesel
  • Dolce
  • Gahanna
  • Oral
