Opinions on these more unusual/unpopular names and their usability?
I was just brainstorming names and would like your thoughts on some of them - your opinion of the name itself and the connotations/associations it has for you, any interesting nn or middle name options that spring to mind, and/or its usability:
Hermione - I love Shakespeare's "A Winter's Tale" and the likable heroine who wears said name, but does this name seem overwhelmingly
associated with Harry Potter at this point? While I love the series and the character, I wonder if that makes it unusable. Does anyone have any stats about how many girls have been given that name in the States over the past few years?
Lorelei or Lorelai - Is it too trendy or classic? Does having German ancestry help make it more wearable?
Virginia - Like Lorelei, this isn't as unusual as the others, but for some reason is hasn't risen with Violet and Victoria as I expected it to
Doris, Dora, or Dolores
