Still Nothing 'Striking'
I'm constantly frustrated by boy names. Girls are easy for me, despite the comparative plethora of choices, or perhaps because of.
There have been a few girl names that struck me as perfect, but only one boy. Thus, I remain ever on the hunt...
'Striking' girl's names:
Eliette (smite me, if you must)
'Striking' boy's name:
I'm not looking for names that match my 'style.' Just... anything new, I guess. Throw me your best! Your worst! Your guilty pleasures and your sons! A name you've only heard once, a name you made up, that list you copypaste into any clueless thread!
Feed me names.
I think Alpheus is striking.
I'm not sure my other faveriots are striking but it often depends in the middle name used:
Oooh, those names are so pretty! Eliette is precious, sounds like silver bells.
My best, my worst, my guilty pleasures and my sons:
Boys names that I consider striking:
Gabriel (my all time fav boy name that I can't use)
Sylvan or Silvan
Valentine (maybe more as a middle name)
Christophe (French) or Christoph (German)
Alexander (although popular in my area)
Lucian, Silas, Tobias, Thaddeus, Alistair, August, Atticus, Oliver, Darrien, Draco, Draven, Ash.
I'm really liking
Caesar -- I would spell it like this, and pronounce it Kai-zer; I've taken Latin classes and plan on teaching myself the language from here on out, so it wouldn't be too weird for me to use the Latin spelling and pronunciation.
Anything else? I'll take trendy, cute, meaningful, dated -- I've noticed that I have an affinity for unisex names, anything unusual in that realm?
I will just list a few of my favorites, not sure if you will like them:
And these just came to find: Rufus, Roderick, Garnet and Samson.
I hadn't thought of Bennett! That's a good one!
I'm also liking Sherlock, Garnet and Roderick. @mclevine, how is Zenoviy pronounced?
