Boy Names of Obscure theme

Obscure names for baby boys, related also with unknown with 134 entries. Being anything but mainstream, obscure names run the range of being quirky to bordering somewhat on the outlandish. Choosing an obscure name might also be a question of picking a low-ranking but widely-known name. Take Algernon, for instance. Though not among the top 1,000 names, Algernon is widely-known as the main character in Oscar Wilde’s classic ‘The Importance of Being Earnest’. In addition, what might be obscure in the English-speaking world could in fact be common usage for another country or culture.
