The “Rare” category is a label that can be subjective in some sense as two people’s ideas of what is rare could vary greatly. However, for our purposes, Rare is reserved for names that truly are rare from either a cultural, historical, geographical or ornithological perspective. A rare name may be a name that is not often recognized or heard much in this day and age, and therefore rare based on a time period or historical reference. Or rare could mean a name not often heard in the United States or other modern societies and is therefore rare based on its geographical usage.
