Dreaming of an unusual name for your one-of-a-kind baby? Usnavi is a boy’s name that is so rare, it isn’t even on the charts—yet! This name has risen to fame in the world of theatre from In The Heights, a musical from the mind of the iconic Lin Manuel Miranda. While the performance is set in America, protagonist Usnavi’s family hails from The Dominican Republic. It was their arrival in the US that inspired the unusual name, when the character’s father spotted and mispronounced a ship labeled “US Navy.” The story goes on to detail the trials and tribulations of life spent immersed in a close community through song, dance, and vivid displays. With this background to his name, little Usnavi can be inspired to follow his path and uncover his own unique story.
