Having a baby is a special and unique moment in your life.

Chances are that your son or daughter will be just as unique and special as that moment so you don't want to give them a name that everyone else in the state is giving their kids right?

If you are one of those parents like me who wanted to give their child a unique name, there are some names to avoid if you live in New York. I named our son Avry and even dropped the E from the traditional spelling so he would be different.

Here are 10 names that you are going to want to stay away from if you want something unique and special. These are the most popular names in New York State given to babies.

First, we will start with the girls. Here are the most popular girls' names in New York for 2022.

Of course, you do want to be careful to not go way overboard with the unique name. My son Avry will never have the chance to get a cup or keychain with his name on it unless we special order it. That is something you will just have to remember if you choose to go with a unique name.
