  • Traditional names aren't for everyone.

  • Maybe you're a free spirit or maybe you just don't want your kid to share a name when they start school.

  • Whatever the reason, you don't want to give your baby just any name.

  • Here are some lovely and rare baby names that you might just fall in love with.

  • Noe.

  • The adorable name Noe is a win-win: You get the awesome meaning of the more recognized name Noah, which means "rest" or "comfort", without having to worry about giving your kid a name that everyone else has.

  • Considering that Noah is the number one baby name for boys, the odds of your kid getting constantly mixed up with his classmates is a very real possibility, making Noe a great choice if you love the name Noah.

  • Melina.

  • The origin of this gorgeous name is a bit uncertain, but one sweet explanation is that it comes from the Greek word for "honey".

  • The name hit its peak in the U.S. in 2009, but even then, it only managed to reach number 456 on the list of top baby names for girls.

  • It's a familiar moniker to WWE fans. Melina Perez was a three-time Women's Champion.

  • Niko.

  • The name Niko is used throughout Europe as a variation of the much more well-known name Nicholas.

  • While it is fairly popular overseas, in the United States, this adorable moniker is pretty rare.

  • As fans of HBO's "The Wire" know, Niko is also used stateside as a nickname for Nick or Nicholas.

  • Niko.

  • Sage.

  • While many might think of this name as a name for girls, Sage is becoming increasingly popular as a gender neutral name.

  • So there's one huge advantage: Sage works if you're having a boy or a girl, so if you love it, it works either way.

  • This rare baby name is taken from a sweet herb commonly used in cooking but is also used to describe a wise person.

  • Renata.

  • A popular name in Mexico, Chile, and some European countries, Renata is a rarely used name in the United States.

  • Its international flair makes it an intriguing choice for your baby girl.

  • The name comes from the Latin male name Renatus, which means "born again".

  • Fans of Twilight know the name; she's not in the movies, but in the books. Renata is a vampire with mind control powers.

  • Harlow.

  • Coming from Old English root words, which roughly translate to either "rock hill" or "army hill",

  • Harlow has been in use as a last name for centuries.

  • As a given name, it is still pretty rare, but it makes for a strong unisex choice.

  • As an added bonus, the name Harlow evokes the refinement of the iconic actress Jean Harlow, who starred on the silver screen in the 1920s and 1930s.

  • Alondra.

  • This beautiful name means "lark" in Spanish.

  • While Alondra is trending in Chile and Mexico, it is a rare moniker in the United States.

  • It almost broke into the top 100 names for baby girls in the 1990s, but has since been virtually forgotten outside of the Spanish-speaking world.

  • Just like the song of the lark, this name sounds quite musical and could be a good choice for you if you love to sing or want your little girl to grow up loving music.

  • Meadow.

  • The name Meadow has not been used as a given name for very long, but its melodic sound makes it a beautiful and unique name choice for a little girl.

  • Perhaps the most popular fictional Meadow is mob boss Tony Soprano's daughter in HBO's groundbreaking series "The Sopranos".

  • Alright, you delivered the message.

  • Now let Meadow study.

  • Darian.

  • Most likely a variation of the name Darren, Darian has become a name in its own right, if a rarely used one.

  • Not only does it have a distinctive and distinguished sound, the name also works for both boys and girls.

  • But the most famous Darian in the US might be Darian Stewart, a football player currently with the Denver Broncos.
