    What names do you love but can't see yourself giving a child?

    So I've been finding in the process of looking for names I keep coming across names that I absolutely love but couldn't ever see giving to my kid. Some of them sound weird with our last name, some of them are just not that accessible for an American audience. My favorite unusable names are:

    Titania
    Eleni
    Ilona
    Liesl

    What about yours? Any thoughts?

    Every English name that doesn't have a German pronunciation I like. Well at least not as a first name.

    Those would be:
    Clementine
    Rose
    Violet
    Madeline
    Juliette
    Clara - I've loved Clara for a long time but I feel like it's not for me.
    Polly

    Flora | Ophelia | Penelope | Rose

    August | Elliott Caspar Frederick | Theo

    I have the same problem as opheliaflora - many names that sound awesome in English but awful in German
    For example:
    Isla
    Phoebe
    Keeley
    Piper
    23-year old name nerd/addict living in Austria
    Not pregnant or TTC, just collecting names for later.
