    Little help with our name lists- looking for offbeat, quirky but lastingly beautiful

    Have been frantically compiling lists with my partner T.
    T seems to favour shorter names, with the exception of Tulliver which he loves.
    Looking for any sort of comments/opinions on these names really. Its early days in discussions so any sort of suggestions are brilliant. I'm looking for something which will carry on being exciting to me; something offbeat maybe?


    Rupert
    Inigo
    Kit
    Jasper
    Felix
    Tulliver
    Zeno
    Ivo

    (Possible middle names: Leo/Leon/William)

    Hazel
    Ida
    Penelope
    Virginia
    India
    Romy
    Flora
    Nell
    Agnes
    Bess

    (Possible middle names: Lilibet, Philippa/Pippa, Cecille/Cecily, Imogen, Clara, Estella)

    We aren't finding out the sex, but hopefully we can get to the 9 month mark with a couple of special names for both genders.
    Looking forward to any help you can give..

    I have a similar style, and LOVE Penelope, Flora, Virginia, and Bess for girls. I would also love Lilibet and Estella as FNs! Stella is one of my favorites right now, but Estella is slightly less popular and just as lovely.

    For boys, I like Jasper, Felix, and Kit. Inigo just makes me think 'Princess Bride'. I've never heard of Tulliver before, but I have heard of Tolliver. I always felt like he would get lost in the sea of Olivers, though.

    If I were to pick two top combos for you, it would be Penelope Clara and Jasper Leon. I think they have just the right amount of quirkiness but they're still stylish and beautiful.

    Thanks for the responses- its good to know which names provoke really strong responses from people! I like Marin too- will be thinking that one over.
    I've realised I really like the 'Rom/Rome' sound in names- Roman was on the boys' list but I am just not sold on it as it just doesn't feel quite right; and I love both Romy and Romilly.
    Was wondering if any posters have any ideas of other 'Rom' names? Might post that as its own thread, in fact.
