(Newser) – You want to give your baby a truly unique name...and think "Juniper" might do the trick. Think again. Plenty of "hipster choices" lurk below the list of the Top 1000 baby names—for now—but "Juniper" will be the next "Sloane" soon enough, and your kid won’t seem quite so special, writes Pamela Redmond Satran, coauthor of Beyond Ava & Aiden. She ferreted out the 50 most promising names for each gender that were given to 25 or fewer babies last year, and lists them on the Daily Beast:

For highlights for girls:

  • Branwen
  • Cicely
  • Fleur
  • Kiernan
  • Tamsin
For boys:
  • Birch
  • Calloway
  • Inigo
  • North
  • Vaughan
