Re: Guilty Pleasure Name List!
Rhapsody - I love the meaning, and I think the word is very beautiful. I probably couldn't get away with it, though.
Journey - sort of celebrity-ish, but I don't care.
Jagger - yes, for a girl. My best friend knew a girl named Jagger.
Jersey - see Journey
Persephone - I'm a total Greek mythology nerd.
Spencer - I know so many people hate boy's names for girls, but I don't care.
Gracelynn - Yeah, I like a "tryndee" name. Sue me.
Kayden - See Spencer (although it looks and sounds more feminine to me).
Gemedsica - pn jeh-med-sick-uh. I knew a girl with this name in middle school, and she was always getting compliments on how pretty it was (she went by Gem). I fell in love with it, but it looks awkward.
Mekare - pn muh-car-eh. It's a name from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. I'd probably never use it, but I still like it.
Alaska - love the meaning behind it!
September - don't know why
Lestat - again, an Anne Rice name.
Armand - see Lestat. I think it sounds handsome.
Zeppelin - I'd never use it, but I like it. I love the band. :P
Kash - don't judge me! xD
Slade - again, don't judge...
Jett (I swear I'm not a celebrity)
Alastair - it's not exactly a guilty pleasure, but I'm pretty sure the name of this guy who was into black magic or something was named Alastair Crowley. Then again, the mystery makes me like it even more. (I'm weird, I know.)
Also, I'm glad to see some people secretly like Cruz, I love it as well. It sounds quite handsome. :D

Re: Guilty Pleasure Name List!
I have a few, but 'too strange' isn't good enough reason for me. Bad history or wrong gender or unfavourable namesakes or being the ONLY person alive who likes the name are good enough reasons. Anything that would make the name a burden for the child that can't be fixed with a good story or a heroic namesake.
Armande - Since Armand is generally a boys' name
Dido - I don't like the singer, LOVE the name!
Doe - I'd never use Bo, so using Doe would be hypocritical
Earnestine - From a song, I know I shouldn't
Hummingbird and Sunflower - she would Never be taken seriously!
Radka - For a Norwegian jazz singer, but it's so boy-ish compared to all other names I like
Silence - LOVE, but my daughter would not. Silence is not always a virtue, especially not these days.
Yvaine - I'm a Neil Gaiman fan, but this would sound trashy to most people
Ambrose and Amias - Girly much?
Bear - probably not the best animal name
Dewey - I love it for the Dewey Decimal System, my son would hate it for the exact same reason among other things
Dudley - Too cuddly for a boy these days, plus Harry Potter.
Donald - It's just hopelessly unstylish! plus the Duck.
Elmo - but I might go there and teach him all about St. Elmo's Fire
Iago - Would be like naming him BadGuy.
Joss/Jody - again, girly. I think I'd be bold enough to use them in the middle?
Sayid - seriously lack the heritage! :S
There are some more 'seriously lack the heritage' on the girl's list but I feel like you can get away with more when it comes to girls' names... Soledad, Lluvianna, Socorro, Noor, Théotime, Matéi and Janós fall into the same category, not necessarily because they're so outlandish but because they're so closely linked to a specific nation or area or language that unless you're from there or spent time there you can't really get away with it... Noor, Soledad and Sayid are the worst I think...Ã…shild / Norwegian / 24 / Name Collector / Work: Daycare and the Library / Love to bake, read and listen to music
