    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.

    @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 Ballerina
