    If I were a celebrity, I think I would feel the freedom to use out-there names, like Sea for a girl.

    Ooh, fun question! I love so many names that I would use despite the fact they're rather unusual but for my worry that they will be perceived as pretentious, hipster, or trying too hard. That doesn't seem to be an issue for celebrities, however (Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman, anyone?). So if I was a celebrity, I would totally use...

    GIRL
    Vesper
    Marigold
    Valentine
    Artemis
    Valkyrie
    Sparrow
    Odette
    Winter
    Frances
    Allouette
    Valor
    Wallis
    Polly
    Thisbe
    Winifred
    Ursula
    Sailor

    BOY
    Zephyr
    Waldo
    Sailor
    Cosmo
    Erasmus
    Merlin
    Caius
    Darwin
    Atlas
    Mordecai
    Quince
    Auberon
    Dov
    Baxter
    Ferdinand
    River

    I would still consider using most of these, honestly -- even in my thoroughly unglamorous real life.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    I'm the opposite actually if I was famous I would be far to scared to use a name considered out-there than I would in my current (rather boring) life as let's face everytime a celeb names their kid something odd they tend to get made fun of. A lot. By complete strangers. That being even my more out there choices are actually pretty normal, at least not unheard of. that being said I wish I had the courage to name my one-day daugther my long-time name love Charity

    Probably the same names I would use under normal circumstances, however if I should be somewhat more flamboyant, I'd probably use one of my GP names like Hester, Cosima, Hugo or Akiva. Or actually I know what I would call a girl; Marie-Bonaparte. Now, I know Bonaparte is a last name but it sounds so beautiful and I think being a celebrity could make you get away with it, haha.

    You forgot Busson (Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson)
    Seven names is a lot, but I do think they sound lovely together.
