    Want Something Weird but not Stupid...

    I haven't written something in too long and I need some name suggestions. I'm trying to write something post-apocolyptic, and I want names you don't see much, but don't look or sound stupid and over the top. It could be anything from archaic names you never hear anymore to something made up, but doesn't look too trendy by today's standards, no Nevaeh or Avabellaleelynuneededletters.

    Some Finds

    Varina: Rhymes with Marina. Stole this from Varina Davis, First Lady of the Confederacy. I liked her name and I don't think she's well known enough for associations to be drawn. Can't find a consistent meaning for this, some people think it's a standalone name others think it's a variation of Verina.

    Elisenda: Was a medieval Queen of Aragon. Not sure if it works for a futuristic character. Sounds like it'd be better in a fantasy.

    No names for guys thus far.

    Help me out, list 5 or so names you'd use. Thanks

    Adalycta - just made this one up, but I like the "lyct" noise and how futuristic it sounds.
    Lorelei - real name, used, seems futuristic to me.
    Sevenia - originates from the number 7, why not?
    Ryan - for a girl, this could be futuristic,
    Raina - A real name that you never hear
    Heliothrope - old fashioned, but you never hear it, so it could just as easily be futuristic.
    Forely (four ah lie)- 4/forest/firefly/leah
    Candline - just took the word candle and caroline.


    Hope some of these spark some interest or creative juices to make a name!

    Boys:

    Eryx
    Endymion
    Cephisso (actually a daughter of Apollo, but I think it would work on a male character)
