    Not-Quite-Word Names

    I'm not sure if this is quite popular enough to count as a "trend," but I've noticed that a lot of rarely-used words are popping up as names, and I think it's very interesting. I'm not really talking about names like Noble or Poet, which are rarely used as names but used quite commonly as words, but rather words that have better-used synonyms or have simply fallen out of use in everyday speech.

    Azure, for example, is very rarely used colloquially; if I hear it, it's probably in some type of poetry. Boheme fits pretty solidly in the category, and I've heard Amor used for boys. Has anyone else heard any names or know any words that would qualify?

    @goodkarmavt Not quite Winter and Snow- I'm thinking more along the lines of words that are rarely used in common speech. I think Reverie and Winsome fit.
