There are weirder ones, but by opening my biggest babyname book at random (please blame them if any of the translations are dodgy) I found:
Like - Burr (OK, one of my faves!), Caedmon, Dragan, Elfed, Farouk, Icabod, Lundy, Rhun and for entertainment value Nennog, Scipio and Tancred.
Like not - Amyot, Harshit ('joyful' in Sanskrit), Gaylord (may have fine French origins, but it's the average 11-yr-old's biggest insult in UK!), Jaroslav, Kamper, Math (Welsh for 'treasure'), Olvidio ('forgetful one' in Spanish), Pelex, Quennel, Xylon, Yancy, Zelotes.
Marvellous!Isolde - Freya - Elinor - Eluned - Tabitha - Anouk
Oskar - Caspar - Ebbe - Fred - Burr - Edmund

Okay, this list might get really long. ^_^ I'll * the ones I would love to see actually used.
Ulysses (not weird but way under used like some of the others you like) *
Celeborn -- tree of silver -- it's Elvish
Haldir -- tall -- also Elvish
Drakken (I know a guy nn Drake)
So that's a lot, but do you like any?Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^
Started my NaNoWriMo novel - Kith nor Kin -- read it here if you'd like and feel free to comment -- http://kithnorkin.wordpress.com/ Chapter 19 is up -- Warning! It's pretty gruesome.
