    Which of these names are actually usable?

    I've grown to love a lot of names that would be considered really out-there where I live in the midwestern US. Which of these do you think are usable and which should stay as guilty pleasures?

    Calista nn Callie
    Thalia
    Allegra
    Clio
    Freya
    Calypso
    Cordelia nn Cora
    Io (should this be a nickname for a longer name?)
    Philadelphia
    Felicity ~ Calista ~ Claudia ~ Beatrice "Betty" ~ Carlotta ~ Millie ~ Cora ~ Audrey ~ Violet

    Calvin ~ Jude ~ Miles ~ Oliver ~ Roscoe ~ Benjamin ~ Leo ~ Adrian ~ Isaac ~ Colin

    I wouldn't raise an eyebrow if I heard:

    Thalia
    Allegra
    Freya
    Cordelia

    Calista is a little much for me, but Callie is ok so if you love it go for it. Clio spelled that way seems off to me, but I don't mind Cleo.

    Calypso, Io and Philadelphia are just way too much in my opinion.

    Calista is so beautiful. It's my favorite on your list and one that I come back to regularly. I think its gorgeous and I don't think its too out there. I live in the midwest too, and where I live kids are named a lot crazier. lol

    I agree with this. And I also live in the Midwest.
