Unique Baby B names

looking for sibling names to go with Bryce. I want boy and girl names that more unique and not very common. CANNOT use Brody; my brother-law named their son that after we had Bryce.

For boys Byron comes to mind immediately, Booker is also a nice option, Bowen, Baxter, Benjamin, if you're looking for something a bit longer though it is pretty common if you combind it with all the Ben- names, Brayden, Brenton, Blaine and Bodhi for consideration.

For girls Beatrix/ce is always something I'll suggest. Bay Brooke, or Brynn if you're looking for something short. Maybe Blakely, Briony or Bella.

I'll second Briony (love it!) and Baxter. 

And I'll add (unless I've missed them above, apologies for repeats) Bennett, Brent/Brenton, Beau and Bernard/Bernie For boys, and Branwen, Bree, Bronte, Bridie/Bridget and Betsey for girls.

Are any of these names on the right track? Just going off Bryce alone isnt much of a pointer, and "unique" means different things to different people. Is there any kind of style or feel you're going for?

Well Bryce's full name is Noah "Bryce" Bolton so I have been torn between using all B names or trying to have all first names than end in a/ah sound.  I like Kenna, Freya, Olivia (too common) and Jonah, Ezra, Micah and/or Brielle, Blake, Brylee. thoughts? I would really like to pair the first name ending in a/ah with a B middle name But nothing seems to pair well together.

Jonah Blake and Micah Blake work well. 

Silvia Brielle sounds nice.

I apologize if there are any repeats here.

Boys: Baron, Beckett, Beau, Brent, Brett, Brock, Bruno, Brooks, Bailor/Baylor, Bane, Banks, Basil, Baxley, Benton, Bingham, Blue, Booker, Brant, Brick, Briggs, Burke.

Girls: Bailey, Beatrice or Beatrix, Bianca, Belinda, Brielle, Britanny, Brynn, Babs, Becca, Bellamy, Berkeley, Beryl, Beverly, Birdie, Blair, Blue, Blake, Britta, Briar, Buffy.

Of these, I really like Beckett, Bane, and Baylor for boys, and Beatrix, Brynn, Becca, and Blair for girls.

I think Blair would go really nicely with Bryce. I think Bruno, Booker, Brant, Becca, and Blake would also be good as sibling names for Bryce.

One that I have heard recently and liked was Boden for a boy, nickname Bode. Also I love Brooks for a boy. I think everyone above has probably already covered other names! 

For girls: Brenna, Braylee, Baya

Boys: Bane, Baker, Blake, Barrett, Beckett, Baron, Baxter, Beau, Bennett, Burke, Booker, Bowen, Brock, Blake, Bode

Girls: Berkley, Blair, Beatriz, Beckett, Bellamy, Bethany, Beyonce (I'm only kidding), Bianca, Blake

If you handed me the reins and said "Lady, name my baby" I'd pick Burke and Bellamy.

Is a B name a must? 

I think Bryce is a sporty, mostly modern name-a bit of a throwback for me, as the Bryces I know are mostly teenage, except I know a preteen girl Bryce. 

Let's see

Zachary, Wyatt, Tate, Curtis, Jace, Jamison, Garett, Trevor, Jared

For girls

Everly, Story, Aleah, Kennedy, Brielle

no the b name is not a must. I've always liked the idea of each Childs name starting with the same letter. I know many people don't. My grandma used Janice Alesia, Joel Keith, Joanne Anita and Jill Angela for her four. I was never sure why she didn't use an a middle name for my uncle. 

I have even thought about using a first name ending in a/ah. Alhough I love Everly because it reminds me of my grandmother, Evelyn. There is already baby Evelyn on my husband's aside. We also would like to have four so just trying to plan ahead.

Alternatives to Evelyn: Avalon, Vivian, Lydia, Syliva....

Not a fan of any of these... Sorry

I'm going to add Bridger and Braxton for boys' name suggestions. 

You could use Beverly instead of Everly, but I'm guessing that isn't your style. 

Do you like Bevin at all? There was a gal on the Bachelor named Bevin a while back. I know that's super random, but I've always liked it. 

I feel like you have a more modern/contemporary style than most of the B names I can think of!

I actualily like Beverly but the husband HATES it. I would say I like pairing older names with more modern. I like Biblical names as well. the problem I run into is either it is too common or too unique/ weird.

Are there some you're hesitant about only because of popularity?

Popular names aren't what they used to be-even a number one name is only given to a small percentage (like low single digits) of babies. 

It might help to look at the SSA stats and see the actual number of babies in your state with any you're considering.

A B girl name that was top of our list last time (we had a boy) was Basia. It's a Russian nickname, but we found it because of a line in an ancient Roman poem, "Da mihi multa basia" ("Give to me many kisses") and thought of it as meaning "kisses". If it sounds familiar to anyone, I think it's from a really early lesson in Wheelock's Latin. The Latin pronunciation (not a name) I believe is roughly Bah-zee-uh; I think the Russian version is more like Bosh-uh or Bazh-uh.

Basia is also a Hebrew name.  The Modern Israeli Hebrew form is Batya.  The ancient Hebrew form is transliterated Bithiah.  The Yiddish form is Bashe.  The name means daughter of God and is the name traditionally ascribed to the daughter of Pharaoh who fostered Moses.

Excellent--another "legit" etymology, and it sounds like a pretty cool namesake and meaning. How is the Hebrew name pronounced?

FYI, the nickname is for Barbara--Polish, not Russian, as I misstated above. There is a semi-famous wills and trusts case involving a beneficiary with this name, which was the first place I encountered it outside of the Latin primer.

Bas/Bat- (daughter) is pronounced like Bas/Bat Mitzvah, if you are familiar with that term.  The second syllable is a word for God and is pronounced like the German ja.  So the pronunciation is straightforward.  Basia would be the form used by European Jews before the founding of the State of Israel.  Batya is the Modern Israeli pronunciation, now widely used by American Jews of Zionist bent.

idk my husband likes Boone and Boston is a family name. I think he likes Boston because he joking says his nickname could be boss. I'm however not as sold on them. I'm afraid they are both too out there. But he says middle names they are perfect.

Older...hmmmm. ..Basil and Beatrice?

I heard of one couple who was thinking about Boston, but thought it was too out there until they realized Boston is just Austin with a B.
