Considering so many of us love our dogs and cats just as much as we love our children, why not look to the animal world for some baby name inspiration?
Whether you fancy going a little out there or are looking for something different that won't necessarily turn heads, there are plenty of options out there.
After an angelfish; a beautiful and unusual choice.
Made famous by Kate Winslet and Bear Grylls, this one doesn't even sound strange anymore.
If an musician can do it, what's stopping you?
A type of dog; you could pretend you shortened it from Colin...
The perfect choice if you're a horse-lover.
A large, long-beaked bird; you could opt for Krane if you're not feeling brave.
We love this one; strong and curious - the perfect name for a child.
Beautiful and delicate - one of our favourite names for a girl.
If you're feeling brave that is.
A beautifully sweet name that would work for a boy or a girl, but we're leaning more towards boy.
11. (Great) Dane
A large but extremely friendly dog - Dane is cool.
12. Jack (russell)
A terrier dog that is loved the world over.
Endangered New Zealand-native bird; sweet and fun - a good option for your little one.
Cat just doesn't seem right.
A strong and mysterious imagine introducing your son to the world as Lynx.
After a magpie (is that pushing it too far?).
Perfect for black-haired beauties.
18. (Saint) Bernard
Now this one would totally work.
Nicole Ritchie opted for this for her son.
Another delicate bird; we love how this sounds.
At least you won't have to deal with five other kids in your little one's class having the same name.
After a medium sized bear (not the Marvel hero).
