    Unique but not "yoo-neek"

    "It's just a name, what's the big deal?" I'm sure many of you have heard this from your partner before. My husband said this two weeks ago so I decided to start calling the baby a ridiculous name to get the point (what's the big deal?) across. For two weeks I've been referring to the baby as "Scabby Jones". I've said it at least five times a day and he cringes every time. So...I think he gets it now. My apologies for offending anyone out there with the name "Scabby Jones".

    Now at least we're in this name hunt together. We're looking for a name that is closer to the uncommon side but nothing with a crazy spelling. We’re having trouble agreeing. Surprise.

    Here are some ideas of names I/he likes. Any suggestions for other names would be wonderful! Thank you in advance!

    GIRLS:
    March
    Saffron
    Berlin
    Holiday
    Veda - I can’t get him to stop saying “Darth Veda.” Arrrgh.
    Marlowe
    Beryl
    Thora
    Elona (Ee-LO-nah) This is his pick. I’m not a fan. Especially since our last name is Polish and complicated. Although, it would make a great name for an Olympic ice skater.

    Names I like but are too common:
    Vivienne
    Norah
    Sage - I truly love this but my mother is a teacher and she’s seen this quite a bit.
    Violet
    Willa
    Rowan

    NNs I like but would need longer names for them:
    Leni
    June/Junie (sadly, we can’t use Juniper)
    Alfie
    Ande (pronounced “Ann-dee”)

    BOYS:
    Forest
    Ames
    Conan
    Lionel
    Sigmund
    Maine
    Orson
    Julius
    Dash
    Truman - This is his pick. It’s too stuffy for me.

    Names I like but are too common:
    Theodore/Theo
    River
    Simon
    Sebastian
    Leo

    As you can see, we're all over the place. Thanks again for your help!

    Here's some boys name's we've been bouncing around that while not completely unique are not necessarily common either:

    Sawyer
    Drake
    Gabriel
    Cillian
    Peyton
    Hunter
    Spencer
    Silus
    Luka
    Seth
    Kai
    Grayson

    Back before we knew we were having a boy we liked the girls names Sloan or Vienna.

    Good luck!

    I like Marlow(e) a lot. I've known one girl with the name and it fit her well.

    Ande is also really nice, and anything that has *and in it would work.
    Alesandra
    Andromeda
    Cassandra
    Coriander
    Lysandra
    Miranda

    For Leni you could use
    Avilene
    Elenora
    Gwendolene
    Malena
    Jillean
    Magdalena
    Noelene


    For boys I like Dash (Dashiell)
    If you like Theo what about Thad (Thaddeus)

    I've never met a Sage, but it probably varies in locations.

    I like Marlow(e) and Thora the best for girls and Conan and Forest (though I knew a few of these growing up - all nice guys) for boys.

    Girls: Scout, Harlow, Marley, Letitia, Montana, Juliana (or Guiliana), Zara, Gretchen, Aurelia
    Boys: Phineas, Abner, Vincent, Tennessee, Sawyer, Jasper, Josiah, Xavier
