Tell me a name I haven't heard before!
I kept my list of favorite names on my phone (bad move!), and the note accidentally got deleted. So, I've decided to use this as a chance to make a brand new list.
Like my title says - tell me some names that I haven't heard before as well as how to pronounce them. I'm looking for names that are rare/underused/interesting/etc.
I'm hoping that this will be a way to find new inspiration for my name list, and also I'm hoping that it will inspire other people as well with new names to add to their lists!

Here's a few to get you started:
Loic -male, LOW + IK, old French name that seems to be coming back in style (100 year rule?)... At least, I have a friend who would like to use it if her DH will let her In French, there are 2 dots on the I, like in Noel.
Ludivine - female, LOO + duh + veen (French pronunciation), same friend's friend from France... But they haven't added this to NB yet
Ksenia -female, one of my DH's Russian colleagues, Kuhn + Sen + ya
Oh... Sorry, I didn't realize you posted this in the boy's section only.
