Picking the perfect baby name for your little one is a tough and daunting task--especially if you're looking to go with a distinctive moniker. My husband and I have been going back and forth about what we should name our beautiful unborn son (also known as my "soul baby"). My husband is Chinese and we ideally want an uncommon name that sounds great in Chinese, Spanish, and English. Checking all of those boxes off is starting to seem like an impossible task, but this determined mom-to-be isn't giving up.

Celebrities are known for giving their babies names that are totally unusual and out of the box, and they usually don't settle for an average moniker. Their names are so outrageous and so unique at times that it was even surprising when Eva Longoria named her son Santiago. Fans have become so used to hearing uncommon names from stars, it's almost as if they expect it these days.  

My baby boy name search continues and these beautiful Latino celebrity kid names are definitely giving me plenty of inspiration! It may do the same for you.
