From Gulliver to Eulalie: These are the 100 sweet baby names nobody has been using.

When you have the incredible responsibility of naming a child, of course you want to get it right.

Most parents are arguably looking for something familiar but not overused.

But for parents who want something truly unique, US website, Nameberry, has revealed a list of names they say “nobody is using”.

“We decided to run the new 2016 extended list of baby names from the Social Security Administration — all the baby names recorded in the US last year — against the complete list of names in our own database,” writes Nameberry’s Pamela Redmond.

“What’s left is an accounting of names that were used for NO children in 2016, a collection of truly unique baby names.”

The website got a list of 5000 no-named names down to 100.

Names cast aside include reality star Kim Kardashian’s creative name choice, North (and West).
