If you want to bless your baby with a independent sensibility without breaking tradition name-wise, you're in luck! Many names meaning unique are actually classic names that won't leave teachers scratching their heads during roll call. The term Grace means decency with a special beauty, so this can be a great girl name that means unique. The standard, attractive boy names Andy and Anthony also mean unique.
