Choosing a name for your baby is one of the biggest decisions and to make things worse, they're constantly evolving.

Recently there has been a shift from parents giving their children names that are meaningful, such as naming them after family members. Instead, they are opting for more unique and uncommon choices.

According to Mark Kowalczyk, founder of Special Moment, Hollywood's A-listers are not far behind in setting this trend. The likes of Kylie Jenner, who is known for her bold choices, has chosen the rare Aire for her son.
