Recommend Your Favorite Rare/ Obscure Names
I don't care what style, just please tell me some very uncommon (at least out of the top 1000) yet legitimate names. Ancient, old fashioned, ethnic, whatever. I'd love to find some I haven't heard of.Mom to 2 girls ♥ Bayard McConnell "Bay" & Marguerite Davis "Maple"

@augustalee- I do! That's an awesome list, thank you!
These are already on my long list:
Marigold- love with nn Goldie
Thisbe- my husband's a classicist so he loves it but thinks it will be butchered by people who can't prn it
Circe- love even though our last name sounds like Sawnders so too much S sound
Augusta- so pretty but I'm trying to come up with a nn besides Gussie or Augie. Aggie too weird?
Odessa- going to ask my husband about this one
Margo- pretty but is it nicknamey on its own?
Seraphina- love this but I'm afraid it's too closely associated with Ben Affleck's daughter
Juno- would probably be on my list if it weren't for the movie
Saskia- like but it doesn't go with our last name because of all the S sounds
Lavender- love but would need to come up with a really good nickname
Violet- love, but worry about popularity because of V Affleck
Mabel- I considered this but think I prefer Maple
Valentine- love it prn valen-teen but people where I live wouldn't get it
Andromeda- so pretty, I just don't think it goes with Bay's name
Polly- my daughter so wants this to be her little sister's name thanks to Angelina BallerinaMom to 2 girls ♥ Bayard McConnell "Bay" & Marguerite Davis "Maple"
