18 Rare Baby Names That Are Gaining In Popularity
Seriously loving the strong, not-super-girly names on this list! Rebel is just a kick-ass name, no matter how you slice it. Now, you may be setting yourself up for trouble down the line if you name your kid Rebel. But you can cross that bridge when you come to it (after Rebel has set it on fire). The name Rebel is of Germanic descent, from the name “h(rab) – raven”. You could also soften it up a bit by using the French version, Rebelle. That also gives you the option of using Belle as a nickname, until your little girl decides she wants to fulfill her destiny and lead some sort of rebellion.
