    Throw some weird ones at me!

    Okay, I'm thinking I might actually be at square one here with baby girl names. As you all are probably sick of hearing about, I used to love Clover but now think it's getting too trendy. I'm a severe trendophobe! I was thinking of another floral name, but perhaps any floral name that's not totally insane (like Moonflower, which is kind of on my list) is going to be seen as trendy ten years from now!

    I want some weird but cool girl names that aren't hideously ugly and aren't trendy in the least. I love word names, especially nature ones (which I know is a trend). I also like old lady names (also a trend!). I like dark names (my sons' names are semi- to very villainous-sounding) and intense-sounding names, and names that sound sparkly or magical. Hate unisex or masculine names for girls, won't accept anything top 1000, don't like flowy, "a" filled names that seem to be trending now. Don't want any common nickname to be possible from the name.

    Hope you all can help!

    And I am EXTREMELY picky and will try to tell you what I don't like about names that I don't like in order to help you get a sense of my taste!

    Okay, I'll give it a try. These are all names I love, but most of them my husband has stamped as "too weird even for me", whatever that means.

    Strawberry:

    Lavender - like the sentiment, but makes me think of laundry and is somehow not girly enough
    Azalea - too "a" flowy, plus I had an extremely bitchy boss named this once
    Bijou - cute, but I do have a last name that starts with "M" and it would have to be like the ultimate name for me to give my daughter the initials "BM"
    Celosia - meh
    Amaryllis - too "a" and vowel flowy, not flowery enough
    Acacia - too "a" flowy
    Assyria - "ass" plus "a" flowy plus not my favorite ancient civilization
    Zinnia - my youngest son's name starts with "Z," so it might be too weird to use it twice in a row, plus a little too vowel flowy and I had a teacher once with a last name close to that who wasn't my favorite
    Lilac - Loved it for my first son if he was a girl, but I used the name Eli with him and it's too close, plus Lila is so trendy now
    Fern - too close to nerdy male Vern, and too ugly nerdy as well
    Delphine - It's just okay, too vowel-flowy
    Snowdrop - Snow stuff sounds too trendy to me
    Calantha - too "a" flowy
    Caspia - too "a" flowy
    Freesia - not solid enough, too "a" flowy
    Bouvardia - sounds like a disease
    Peony - might be my favorite flowers, but the word sounds too close to penis or pee on me
    Safflower - don't like it
    Saponaria - Sounds like a plant disease
    Blaithin - Irish/B objections

    Sorry if my objections are harsh/insane!
