Names that I never see brought up on here...
These names aren't necessarily "favorites" of mine (though several are on my long list), but I'm just wondering why I never see them brought up on the boards. I assume they are outdated (a smorgasbord from several different decades), but to me, they would be refreshing to see on children...though not necessarily my own .
What are your opinions on:
Casey (can boys no longer wear this?)
Irene (I once read a children's novel set in ancient Greece that had a little Greek girl character named Irene...really brought it back to life)

I actually love Monica. It's one of my faves since I was a kid. Unfortunately it has two really strong associations at least for the foreseeable future: Ms. Lewinsky and the fictional Mrs. Geller-Bing (Friends).
It is a beautiful name with a lovely pedigree that goes way back. I haven't totally discounted it. I really don't think it is totally unusable, and maybe some bold parents will bring it back around.Mrs. H.
Trying for our first!
If it's a boy: Josiah Walker "Joe"
If it's a girl: Atrella Mary Emerald

I'm a Sally! Actually to be more accurate I'm a Sara nicknamed Sally, but since birth I've been called Sally. I know some people might think it's dated but I don't see that - understandably! - because it never had the massive popularity as, say, Linda or Jennifer. It's very, very VERY uncommon in my age group (late 20s), but it seemed to enjoy some popularity in the early 80s in Australia, and I also hear it more when I'm in England. But in the US? Not so much. I thought the death of astronaut Sally Ride earlier this year might put it in the spotlight, but no such luck. Maybe Sally Field's turn in Lincoln will give it a bit more shine come Oscar season. I too think it would be refreshing to hear on a young girl.

I've met male Casey's. It's still works. I don't mention them because I don't like them. Except Irene. I mention Irene. It's a gorgeous name and I love it!
I never see a lot of the normal names I love on here either. I never see (or hardly see):
Irene (like you)
Augusten/Augustin (but you see August everywhere)
Warren -- I especially wish I'd see this one. It's so handsome and distinguished and goes with current trends of old fashioned becoming new again.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.
