    Catalogs ... LL Bean, Pottery Barn, especially love Restortion Hardware
    Charitable donation lists at synagogue (usually on a plaque) or in the back of programs if I go to the symphony or something
    Birth announcement cards online (minted dot com) ... I like seeing what the example cards use (Alistair & Thea, not just Sophie & Aidan)

    I forgot to mention something in particular about movie credits. Pixar movie credits are always a gold mine for name gems and other unusual finds. I guess there is a lot of ethnic diversity at Pixar, which I find really enjoyable.

    Looking at credits of films, books and music as people have said, messing around with Google Translate. I also plunder dictionaries, read words backwards and rearrange the letters.

    School, & classmates.

    Honestly. The yearbook is great.... Plus teachers
    talk about their kids so I make note of sibsets.

    My little sibling is in sports, so the children on
    his team plus their siblings names, and the
    cheerleaders all provide interesting names.

    Some names I've encountered:

    Natalia
    Vienna
    Caine
    Julius
    Lane
    Hercules
    Dash
    Cyrus

    However, we also have the super common names
    including 2 Jacob's on 1 team, 2 Isabella's on the
    cheer team, Alivia, and of course Sophia with little
    brother Jacob...
