1. Jackson (boy)
Jackson, "son of jack", is now more popular than Jack and John, ranking #22 on the national top charts. Name your baby Jackson and he'll be sharing his name with abstract Expressionist painter Jackson Pollock - famous for his drip paintings with some of the most expensive paintings in the world.
2. Ryder (boy)
Ryder, "cavalryman, messenger", started to climb the baby name charts in 2004 when Kate Hudson gave this name to her son. It just broke into the top 100, and we're suspecting this name will be even more popular in the next few years.
You won't be surprised to hear that Cameron Diaz boosted the popularity of the name Cameron. What you probably didn't know? It's originally a scottish male name. It has lost its popularity in the last years - making it a cool but quite unique name today.
4. Alaska (girl)
This native american name is very unusual (according to nameberry.com there are less than 39 girls with this name), making it more than a one-in-a-million name.
5. Ava (girl)

No doubt Marilyn Monroe comes to mind - but the name Monroe didn't show up on the baby name charts until the mid-2000s, now ranking at position 957 (2012).
