Characteristics of Unique
Etymology & Historical Origin - Unique
Unique is an English vocabulary word, an adjective that describes something or someone as being one of a kind (singularly different in a good way). The English borrowed the word from the French which was ultimately derived from the Latin “unicus” meaning “single, sole” (from “unus” meaning “one”). As a female given name, Unique is an example of what we would call a celebratory name – names which parents bestow to celebrate their children. Princess, Precious, Miracle and Cherish would be other such examples of vocabulary words turned into female first names. Many people find this naming practice a bit too kitschy for their own tastes, but it’s hard to blame a mother or father who sees their baby girl as singular and “unique”.
Popularity of the Name Unique
As a given name, Unique first appeared on America’s naming charts in 1995 at position #884 out of 1000. The name never managed anything much more above that. It has pretty much resided at or near the very bottom of the charts (adding to her “uniqueness” – this name is quite rare). In fact, the name fell off the U.S. Top 1000 list of baby girl names in 2010 and so far has not yet resurfaced. This means probably less than 50 baby girls out of almost two million receive this unconventional moniker per year. We don’t need to tell you that this name is quite “Unique!”

Sixes are in love with the idea of love in its idealized form - and with their magnetic personalities, they easily draw people toward them. Like the number Two personality, they seek balance and harmony in their life and the world at large. They are conscientious and service-oriented, and a champion for the underdog.
