    Bit crazy posh names please!

    I've got one family in my novel that likes INSANE names. (this is a direct reaction to being limited to royal names for most of my main characters). They're very upper class English, and they're only minor characters but it's driving me mad.

    So far I have Lucasta and Cecily, but I need a name for the middle sister. I had Arabella, but I had to ditch that because I had too many A names (Albert, Alice, Alexandra, Alfred...) I also toyed with Isolde, but it's too much.

    Help!

    Isolde isn't too crazy. Neither are Lucasta and Cecily, actually. O_o

    Thisbe
    Andromeda
    Ashka
    Reese/Rheese
    Loraine
    Francisca
    Lucinna
    Evangelica
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

    Well, crazy in comparison to Richard, Caroline, James, George, Alice and Albert. (and Mary, David, Alfred and Victoria) I mean. I've had SUCH a tight pool of names for the main characters I want to have more fun with these.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone! The As is SUCH an annoying thing, but I also had an Amelia, Amrit, Adrian and the Arabella. It was getting too repetitive.

    Beatrix could be cool, but a bit close to Beatrice, and I'm trying to avoid using names of the current British royal family. (And associates, so Cressida is out as well...) Fenella could be good, actually.

    I might have to give them a brother called Swithun, because that's amazing.

    For the record, Lucasta has a daughter Otillie and will also eventually have a son called Montague.

    And I have a Jemima and a Rupert as well. Love those names.

    What about:
    Ryana/Raina
    Harlow (too popular?)
    Anastarzia (I have heard this name on a real girl)
    Sheridan
    Aisha
    Nerissa?
    Victoria

    I would not describe them as crazy more like kind of out there. It's hard because a lot of names that used to be really out there have gone main stream.
    Good Luck!
