Names like Villette
Okay, so for some reason this name came to me today -- Villette. I knew it was the name of a novel by one of the Bronte sisters and assumed it was the name of the novel's heroine, though I've discovered that it isn't.
Anyways, as I started thinking about it more and more I started to become somewhat smitten with it. Now I'm not sure if it's this specific name I'm liking or more the 'feel' of the name -- that it's unexpected, yet still sounds like a name that isn't too 'out there' (albeit almost completely unheard of in N.America, yet it still 'feels' to me like a name and not something people would think is made-up), feels feminine etc.
However, I'm pretty sure hubby won't go for it (we're expecting baby #4 and don't know the gender). Oh, and the other problem is that it means 'small town'. We generally like to choose names that have more substantial meanings, if that makes sense.
So, can you berries give me some lists of names that you think have a similar 'feel' (maybe a similar sound, though not necessarily) as Villette?
Something unexpected yet not bizarre sounding, something feminine (though not too sugar-y sweetly feminine).
I'm interested to read what you come up with.
