    Looking for inspiration on obscure names, I girded my loins and ventured into the hinterlands of the 2012 SSA list. I apologize for the length, but I was having too much fun thinking outside my usual box. Some of the spellings were just unbearable, so they've been sanitized for your protection.

    Adar – or Adair.
    Alandis
    Alusine
    Alvion – also, Albion
    Anatol/Anatole/Anatoly
    Anchor
    Aurion – also, Orion
    Avedis – also, Aleydis/Alaidis, an obscure girl name, but I think it could pass for unisex these days.
    Azarya, or Azaria
    Barrett
    Booth
    Bowan
    Brannan
    Brenley
    Carlen
    Colwyn
    Cosmas
    Cypher
    Damian/Damien
    Deaton, also Dean
    Draper, or, ooooh, how about Douglas? I love it for a girl, and it's the traditionally masculine name I would pick for myself if I had to. I blame Jude Deveraux's A Knight in Shining Armor...
    Duffy
    Eisley
    Evran—There's also Evren, a unisex Turkish name with a great meaning
    Fable
    Hannon
    Jacoby
    Jasper
    Julius
    Kaspian (Caspian)
    Kastiel (Castiel/Castile)
    Keefe—also, Kiefer
    Carrington
    Kestrel
    Leland
    Malloy
    Memphis
    Micaih – Not really sure what this is, honestly, but I'll use it to springboard to Micah, Mikhail, Miles, and Miron (MEER-on), a Polish form of Myron that's way more appealing than the English version.
    Morris
    Moss
    Munro
    Parke – or Park
    Peri/Perry
    Phinneas
    Poe
    Quentin
    Rosco –or Roscoe
    Sascha
    Seely
    Shadow
    Shamus/Seamus
    Sean/Shawn
    Soren
    Silas
    Talbot
    Tesla
    Torin
    Thyme
    Wesley
    Wyn/Wynn/Wynne

    For comparison, I went a century back and looked at the bottom 5 for 1912. (It was a quarter the size and far more lovely.)

    Abel
    Alban
    Anders
    Arley
    Aster
    Atticus
    Bennet
    Benno
    Calhoun
    Calloway
    Channing
    Creed
    Crosby
    Gates
    Geneva
    Gerome/Jerome
    Gillespie
    Greer
    Hale
    Hildred
    Ingram
    Jolly
    Judah
    Jude
    Lauris -- I actually love this. The unisex Laurence would be another good one.
    Lenox or Lennox
    Marlowe
    Meril --I love the Merrill spelling
    Merrit, or Merit
    Narcisse
    Ormand
    Perrin
    Sander
    Shepherd
    Sherwin -- I'll also suggest Sheridan
    ----
    Mom to N
    Malcolm, Tristan, Aaron, Garrett, Vincent
    Iris, Bridget, Bonnie, Averill, Petra

    RGE; I'm sorry people are misbehaving on your threads.
    I do not consider bullying and downright threatening others for their opinions to be appropriate social behavior. The nature of your reply begs the question of whom has not learned proper behavior. I am not afraid of you, and I will continue to share my honest opinions, with tact. So yes, keep calm and carry on.
