I don't have access to my family's family tree app thing my dad has, but I do remember these off-hand:
Emmeline (och, so happy about this, haha)
Avery (so many Averys in my grandfather's ancestry! It makes me so happy, haha)
And I don't know where in my family she was from, but I remember coming across Anna Clara Elizabeth, and thinking it was the most beautiful thing ever. It's classic, for the most part, and none of the names are terribly out-of-the-ordinary, but I just think Anna Clara Elizabeth is so beautiful and refreshing! Plus, I think Anna Clara would be a fab double barrel.
I remember coming across a Drury, too, and finding that slightly odd. It sounds too close to "dreary" to be very usable, imo. Still sort of cool, though, and I sort of like it as a second middle. Something along the lines of Asher Elliot Drury...

Sophronia, Elsbeth, Louvesia, and Hedwig are my favorites! You've got some Native American in there too, huh?
Highlights from mine:
Clark (yes! on a girl)
Not so strange for the most part, but Arethusa and Orley-Anna certainly threw me for a loop!k♥m

I'm quite proud to have Talitha on my family tree. I'd never heard the name before I started my genealogy research, and I think it's lovely. Other cool finds:
Eulalie (in 1850s Georgia!)
Parthema (corruption of Parthenia)
Inerree (no idea where this came from)
One of my great-great-grandmothers was named Queen Victoria. She went by Jane though. Her siblings all had interesting names. There was Augustus, Elizabeth Aurelia, Sarah Hazeltine, Christopher Columbus, Josephine Cornellis, Glovenia, Laura Matilda, and Marcenia Clementine.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Gideon ◊ James ◊ Quentin ◊ Solomon ◊ Jasper

The names on my family tree are mostly pretty standard for their day...
Martha - had a sister that is recorded as Tolena or Toleda, but it may have been a misprint of Paulina.
