    I'm more of a fan of angel names than saints (I'm not Catholic), but upon some brief research here's my list (I tried to include names that I hadn't heard before or didn't have other connotations for me, as many are very familiar and not distinctly saintly):

    Adelaide - Aleydis - Anastasia - Anatolia - Apollonia - Aquilina - Augusta - Aurelia - Bathildis - Beatrix - Brigid - Catherine (well known, but one of the coolest ones) - Clotilde - Colette - Delphina - Endellion - Everild - Flavia - Florentina - Hermione - Hildegarde - Honorata - Hyacinth - Isidora - Joan (of Arc) - Lelia - Lucy - Marcella - Mathilda - Natalia - Petronilla - Philomena - Rosalie - Seraphina - Severa - Thais - Theodora (BAMF!) - Valentina - Valeria - Yvette - Zita

    Abraham - Aloysius - Ambrose - Bartholomew - Basil - Benedict - Bonaventure - Camillus - Casimir - Christopher - Colin - Crispin - Felix - Ferdinand - Frederick - Gabriel - Isaac - Isidore - Ives - Joel - Jude - Killian - Leo - Luke - Oliver - Raphael - Samson - Samuel - Simon - Theodore - William
    Amedeo Enjolras Aristotle Leonardo Archer Olivier Mischa Liam Caspian Benedict Theodore Fitzwilliam
    Rosalie Evangeline Mirabelle Ophelia Alice Elisabeth Stella Titania Artemis Cicely Margarethe Thalia Astrid

    I'm an atheist Jew, but most of my academic work is in late Medieval and early Renaissance Europe, so I've run across a lot of awesome saint's names. Jude Thaddeus is definitely my all-time favorite combo. Stella Maris, one of the names of the Virgin Mary, is staggeringly gorgeous.

    This is going to be a long list. Brace yourself. :P

    Lucia
    Aloysius and Aloisia
    Ivo
    Averil
    Benedict
    Isidore (m)
    Abra
    Polycarp (okay, probably not usable, but if you ever needed to name a fish..)
    Cassius
    Solange (gorgeous)
    Tatiana
    Barthomlomew
    Appollonia
    Kateri (very modern, compared to most of this list)
    Cyprian

    Bridget

    Claudia
    Amadore (love this, and such a wonderful meaning)
    Colette
    Sinclair (would love to see this used more)

    Virgil
    Nevin
    Tycho (LOVE)
    Cillian
    Elodia

    Apologies for the length of this list. I adore old saint's names.

    Matilda Sailor or Faye Matilda | Sylvie Winifred or Simon Atlas | Atlas Dov or Alice Violetta | Lucien Wilde or Lucinda Jane | Jane Lucinda or Jack Mariner | Marlowe Charles or Roscoe Thomas | Charles ' Charlie' Wallace or Marigold 'Maggie' Wynn | Eloise Lily or Elliot Darwin | Iris Cordelia or Thea Marina | Jasper Augustus or Juniper 'June' Lovelace | Julian Felix or Judah 'Jude' Reeve

    Just a grad student dreaming ahead...

    Haha, that reminds me; my grandmother's name is Mary, and when she was little, she says the boys used to "tease" her by calling her Stella Maris (she went to Catholic School). She seems to have forgotten that half of the other girls names were Mary, and no boys called them Stella Maris. I swear she was the prettiest girl in that school : )

    Back to the subject, my favorite Saints (and Blessed's) names as follows:

    Eulalia
    Athanasius
    Sebastian
    Lucas/Luke
    Lucia/Lucy
    Therese
    Melchior
    Damian
    Jude
    Gemma
    Dominic
    Genevieve
    Zoe
    Perpetua
    Charles
    Raphael Benedict-Charles Ransom-Jude Matthias-Damian Pascal-Eli John Ishmael

    Lucia Marguerite-Genevieve Aster-Maura Francesca

    Saskia-Elisabeta-Maeve-Afton-Ophelia-Calhoun-Ishmael-Nicolai-Mackie-Scully
