    Usable As First Names OR Quirky Middle Name Choices?

    Hi Berries, I thought I would share some interesting names I've discovered (or rediscovered) while perusing the internet or reading. These are names that have either been borne by real people in the past or they were in one of my numerous baby name books. Many of them are virtue/word names or surnames. I have three questions for you Berries: (1) Which ones do you think would be still be usable as proper names? (2) Which ones would only make quirky middle name choices and (3) Which names should remain guilty pleasures or should be tossed in the bin never to see the light of day again? It's your call.
