    Really uncommon names

    What is the most uncommon and unique name you've come across, one that you either heard on a child and thought was cool, or one that you read in a name book/online/in a regular book and thought 'I would love to meet a child with that name' For me it's definitely Kinnereth for a girl. I don't really have one for a boy, although when I discovered Zephyr a few years ago I definitely thought it was very unique, but since I've studied Greek history and mythology it doesn't seem so unique anymore. What are your favourite uncommon names?

    I met a woman yesterday name Tauby. Haven't been able to find any info on her name.
    My bf also knew a girl named Secora, which I don't mind at all.
    My aunt's name is Vonna, pronounced like Donna.
    25 year-old name lover and cat-momma to Clover and Calvin

    I knew a girl in high school whose name was Trillion. Her brother's name was Seven. I also have a female friend named Misako, nn Misa, a male friend named Luby, and a male cousin named Kainan.

    Edit: Also forgot another male friend; his name is Allio.

    My high school had quite a few people with unique names:
    Tipera (has brothers named Tallisen, Teth and Tristan)
    Seretha her middle name is Uwana!
    Morven - found out much later that this is a real Welsh name like mine
    and a Taryn (also a Welsh name)
    My name is Glenys
    One of my besties was Lorna, which I've learned isn't uncommon for an older generation, but it was for our age group
    My brother knew twin girls named Kashmir & Kadence

    My bff's name is Senia, I always liked that.

    I know someone who named her daughter Ell.cy (without the dot of course). Not a clue where she got that but I actually kinda think it's pretty.

    Some other uncommon names of people I know:
    Loren (male)
    Addison (male, around 20 years old)
    Waylon (I don't know ANYONE else with this name)
    Bartow (goes by Bart)
    Srijon
    Porsha
    Annissa
    Tiara
    Merlin (female)
    Kit (male)
    Jamie (male - I grew up only knowing females with this name)
    Matia
    Carmen
    Zanea
    Filsan
    Lynette
    Ryann (female)
    Kevyn (female)
    Randi (female)
    Colten (I list this because it's recently become popular, but I don't think there are many people around 20-25 with this name)

    I went through my FB friends for that list.. some aren't super uncommon but I don't know anyone else with the names and find them somewhat unique.
