Rare Baby Names You'll Fall In Love With

Pronounced "NO-e," this name is a variation of the more popular Noah. With the name Noe, you get the awesome meaning of the more recognized name (which means "rest" or "comfort") without having to worry about giving your kid a name that everyone else has.
The name's origin is unknown, but one sweet explanation is that it originates from the Greek "meli," which means "honey." The name peaked in 2009, but only made it to number 456 on the list of popular baby names for girls, so it's safe to say that Melina is a hidden gem.
The name Niko is used throughout Europe as a variation of the much more well-known name Nicholas. While it is fairly popular in some countries, primarily used in Finland, Slovenia, and Croatia, this adorable moniker is still pretty rare in the United States.
In Greek mythology, Cassandra is remembered as a Trojan princess. This elegant and noble name was popular during the Middle Ages, and it saw a brief revival at the end of the twentieth century, but is not used very much these days.
Sage is becoming increasingly popular as a gender-neutral baby name, despite the fact that many people may think of it as a girl's name. This rare baby name is taken from a sweet spice commonly used in cooking but is also used to describe a wise person.
