    "unique" names from my childhood

    Perhaps I haven't branched out enough and met enough people, but many people that I used to go to school with, even back to kindergarten, have names that I have never seen on anyone else. Of course they float around nameberry and maybe these names are common where you are from, but here are a few I found interesting:
    Olwyn and Imogen
    Guideon
    Obi (his brothers name was pronounced like EBay, but I don't know the spelling)
    Lani
    Tate
    Ivy
    Griffin
    Thinavysen (goes by Thina, pronounced tee-nah) and Thira
    Sengmolika (goes by Momo)
    Danius (he says his full name is Lithuanian and is pronounced Dahn-u-skus, but again I don't have the spelling)
    Artemis (on a boy)
    Fan-Tai

    Are there any "unique" names from your childhood?

    Kaylee - I don't think this is at all strange now, but in my tiny home town when I was 13 it was all "WOAH!" haha
