    Unusual, pretty, and usable?....

    So my list is all over the place, I have not fallen in love with any combos so far. So new and refreshing names that of course will be accepted by society since our child will need to have a career some day would be so appreciated! The names I find are either too common, becoming popular or my boyfriend does not like them.

    So far I have (I will say I since I am more of the name nerd then him) are:
    Delilah Pearl
    Aurora Orchid
    September Rose
    September Luna
    Delilah Pearl
    Lucienne
    Lavinia/Luvena- there are many different variations or international variations that can be used as well
    Estelle Ruby
    Ruby Poet- Ruby has meaning to me but I think it is becoming to popular.

    Thank you!

    Hmmm, I really like most of your names.

    If you're concerned about Ruby's popularity but it has meaning for you, then I like the idea of putting it in the middle. Delilah Ruby and Lavinia Ruby are lovely.

    Similar to Delilah: Delia, Della, Lilac
    Similar to Aurora: Aurelia, Oriana

    You might also like Viola, Susanna, Milena, Azalea and Zinnia.

    Current favorites:
    Mazarine Cosima Odette Ailsa Celia
    Prosper Finn August Malcolm Zephyr

    I like Estelle Ruby the best. However, Ruby Estelle is swoon worthy.

    First name that popped into my head upon reading your list was Leticia (Lettice is lovely, too, and it's said like leh-TEES, not like lettuce)...has a similarly elegant vibe to Lavinia, is unusual but familiar, and has a lovely meaning.

    Leticia Ruby or Ruby Lettice would be very striking.

    I really like Estelle Ruby from your list, and am still fond of September Luna. Delilah Pearl is beautiful as well. I would also like Aurora Pearl, Lavinia Ruby, Lavinia Poet, Luna Pearl.

    Other ideas:
    Araminta
    Marguerite
    Isadora
    Lavender
    Ivy
    Agatha
    Vivienne
    Stella
    Sparrow
    Ursula
    Cecilia
    Belphoebe
    Beatrix
    Poppy
    Morgana
    Juliet
    Jessamine
    Arabella
    Daphne
    Fiona
    Clarissa

    As for popularity, I think it's definitely worth taking into consideration, but unless it's a top ten name (and maybe even then) I don't think it outweighs meaning, family connection, and other lovely merits...so I wouldn't strike Ruby from the list purely because of popularity. I try to pair unusual middle names with names that are a bit too popular for my taste, like you did with Ruby Poet (or like Ruby Lettice) and I think it keeps the name from ever being boring!
