    Girls names considered "stunning"

    Was wondering what nameberrites consider "stunning" names, the type of name when you hear it, you genuinely blurt out "that is such a pretty name."

    I think a key component of 'stunning' is that it is unexpected when you hear it - that is, a name you rarely, or never have heard on a real person. At least that is the way it is for me. Almost thirty years ago I babysat a little girl named Olivia, and her name truly seemed stunning to me then, because I had never met or heard of any real person with that name other than the actress from Gone with the Wind. Nowadays, there are Olivia's everywhere, and so, while it is still a nice name, I would no longer hear it and think 'stunning'. I met a little girl long ago named Seychelle, like the islands, and that was stunning when her mom said it. So unexpected and evocative! I named one of my own daughters Katriel, which I find stunning in its own way, although I don't know if others agree. But it definitely is unheard of most of the time and out of all my children's names gets the most visual and verbal reactions, ranging from the 'stunned' 'What did you say?" to the few that find it 'stunning'.
