    Exotic baby names?

    I sometimes see names being labelled as "exotic". What names seem the most exotic to you, and why?

    Names that aren't commonly used in the English speaking world seem exotic to me, if they are real names and don't sound like smoosh or madeup, i.e. Saskia (exotic) or Laquinisha (not). IMO, any name in the top 1000 isn't exotic.
    For girls, I often think of exotic as flowery, such as Fiorella (see what I did there?), Lavanya, Melisende and Persephone.

    Uncommon names that are beautiful/girly/feminine like:
    Sosina
    Marisol
    Euphemia
    Saskia
    Faustina
    Rosaline
    Rosalind
    Magnolia
    Edolie
    Artemisia
    Lotus
    Primrose
    Lunette

    And then there are those "forbidden" (mostly word) names, ones that don't really work on real people imo like:
    Evening
    Solstice
    Star
    Moon
