    namecandy is even worse than nameberry, its all about trend and celebrities which is the opposite of what i want. while i dont want some crazy hard to pronounce boy name, i'd like to find something older and obscure. ive found one or two that might work, that roll off the tongue nicely or have a good nickname, but they just arent quiet right yet.
    It is an incredibly tedious process. I've got a list of 250 boys' names that received 100 or less uses in 2012. Here:
