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.
Alvion – also, Albion
Aurion – also, Orion
Avedis – also, Aleydis/Alaidis, an obscure girl name, but I think it could pass for unisex these days.
Azarya, or Azaria
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...
Evran—There's also Evren, a unisex Turkish name with a great meaning
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.
Parke – or Park
Rosco –or Roscoe
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.)
Lauris -- I actually love this. The unisex Laurence would be another good one.
Lenox or Lennox
Meril --I love the Merrill spelling
Merrit, or Merit
Sherwin -- I'll also suggest Sheridan----
Mom to N
Malcolm, Tristan, Aaron, Garrett, Vincent, Clark, Euan, Thaddeus, Eli or Elias, Wesley, Peter
Iris, Bridget, Bonnie, Averill, Petra, Saige, Catherine, Yvette, Viviana, Romilly, Martha, Gillian
