When both of my kids were born, they remained nameless for about a week. Although I had spent months coming up with the names I loved – I still needed to be very vigilant about what exactly to put on that birth record.
I think that many modern parents would like their children to stand out from the crowd – in a good way – and try hard to find names that are rare but respectable.
20. Ambrose [am-brohz]
Coming from the Greek ambrosios (meaning immortal), Ambrose is a gender neutral name that carries with it class, distinction and a hint of sweetness. These days, it’s more found as a last name, but I doubt very much it will lose it’s relatability as a first name anytime soon.
Famous people named Ambrose include Saint Ambrose, a bishop of Milan in 397 AD and Ambrose Bierce, an American journalist and writer.
