    I can't imagine

    using any name without hesitation b/c I am so into names!

    I do love Davenport for a male and Harvest for a female, but would use them probably as middle names.

    I am far bolder with middles!

(Sloane? Mackenzie? Addison? To me these are just plain baffling.)

    So: Erasmus for a boy, Ondine for a girl. The only person whose approval I care about is my husband, and he likes them both.
    We need more Erasmus and Ondine babies and fewer Sloanes! I too am baffled with the Sloane/Mackenzie/Addison thing.

    Mine would be Hezekiah for a boy, and Liesel for a girl.
    I adore these names, but they are definitely too uncommon where I live, for my family and friends to accept. But then again, DH does love them too, so you never know!

    My favorite 'unusual' names that would definitely make my list would be.... Elowen, Clementine, Apolline & Holiday and possibly Silence.
