    I'd never thought of that! Hmm, I rather like Bettina. Adding it to the list!

    And shvibziks, I love Olga Marina Mathilde. Just gorgeous. I know a Mathilde! When I met her, I felt like I was meeting a celebrity because I was just so excited about her name. And I'm seriously considering bumping Visenya from GP to usable-as-a-second-middle. I think she's obscure enough in the series that people might not link the name to ASOIAF immediately, anyway.

Happy to hear that Ingrid won't be hidden out of sight in your Anna combo. The Dagmar Xenia Alexandra connection is neat. My mom is an Alexandra. I thought about using Xenia at one point to honor her (because of the X) and this gives that concept a little extra substance. I'd love to use Dagmar Xenia, but my husband tends to prefer humbler names. I'm going to keep it in my back pocket anyway.
    I know an Amaury. He's Dominican. Prefers to be called Henry, but sometimes I slip up, because it's such an irresistible name.
    No, sadly. We are all very proud of our royal family (the most popular monarchy in all of Europe!), but it's only very few Danes who actually the (rather interesting) history behind the monarchy in Denmark. Haha, well Dagmar Xenia is a "grand" name, but absolutely ravishing nevertheless. Ah, why does one choose to go by another name, when you're named something as beautiful as Amaury, that is beyond me

    Mathilde is a wonderful name, very classy and beautiful but still a very strong name
    I'm also strongly contemplating putting both Rhaenys and Visenya on my list of middles. Even if people recognise the names from the ASOIAF books, the two characters were strong women who would make great namesakes (Visenya more than Rhaenys, but still).

    My GP names that I don't think I could ever use are Eponine, Nautica and Godiva (saw that on here the other day, thought it was absolutely beautiful).

    Other unusual but useable names I like are Delta, Zelda, and Greer. Anniston is a name I'm not sure which of these two categories it would fit into.

    Boys names, I am much more conservative. I think my most "out there" boys choices are Maxim, Amos and Heath.

    I would give my left arm and my right leg to be able to name my son Rudolph without him being teased, I just love the sound of it and think the nickname Rudy is adorable. I would also love sons named Bartholomew "Tolly" and Balthazar "Zar". I don't have many GP names for girls, maybe Scout is one though I would still use it in the middle. I'm not guilty that I like the names I've mentioned, but I class them as GP because I wouldn't be able to bring myself to use them in real life. My top favourites at the moment are Tobias and Roberta - I'd use these in a heartbeat
    Current Loves: Tobias Henry and Sebastian Keith
