Ariadne - I was gutted when I found out as I was given a ugly 'unisex' name that is not feminine or remotely interesting and have spent my whole life correcting people who try to make the spelling more girly or call me Mr.Mum to Mousie, Foo, Bumptious and Pudding.

IIRC, my mum started out loving Agathe - pronounced in French (ah-GAHT), but loathed the Danish pronunciation of it. Then it was between Robin and Selma. Robin was the top contender because she knew that my middle name was going to be Elvira, which was my great-grandmother's middle name, and Selma was that very great-grandmother's mother. The European Robin is my mum's favourite bird and therefore the love for the name. Then somehow she found Zelia and that became it. My second middle was going to be Marcelle, but I ended up with a family surname instead.
Dagmar and Vibe (I would have loved to be a Dagmar myself, but *sigh* my mum isn't particularly fond of that name - Vibe is more her style, but her former stepmother is named Vibeke and her current stepmother is called Vita, so I guess that was out of the picture from the get go).Exporting beautiful old Danish names, exotic Greenlandic names and Greenlandic sibling names.
