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:
Lavinia/Luvena- there are many different variations or international variations that can be used as well
Ruby Poet- Ruby has meaning to me but I think it is becoming to popular.

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

I would like to suggest Anastasia. It's unusual, pretty, and usable. First thing that came to mind!~ Larissa

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.
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!
