    Still Nothing 'Striking'

    I'm constantly frustrated by boy names. Girls are easy for me, despite the comparative plethora of choices, or perhaps because of.

    There have been a few girl names that struck me as perfect, but only one boy. Thus, I remain ever on the hunt...

    'Striking' girl's names:

    Annika
    Helena
    Valentine
    Gloria
    Eliette (smite me, if you must)

    'Striking' boy's name:

    Dashiel

    I'm not looking for names that match my 'style.' Just... anything new, I guess. Throw me your best! Your worst! Your guilty pleasures and your sons! A name you've only heard once, a name you made up, that list you copypaste into any clueless thread!

    Feed me names.
    I’m just trying to behave as I think a friend should behave. Granted, I haven’t had much practice.

    I think Alpheus is striking.
    I'm not sure my other faveriots are striking but it often depends in the middle name used:
    March
    Arrow
    Miro
    Dov
    Orson
