    Rare names

    What are some names that you rarely see in life AND/or mentioned on nameberry? What are some names outside of the Top 1000 that you love?

    I see my names everywhere on nameberry, and I want a rare name for my future children, lol. My names are hot on nameberry!

    Some that I like are (not actually checking all of these, but pretty sure they are not top 1000, some I am sure):

    Oona
    Leocadia
    Inga
    Catalina
    Noemie
    Leonella
    Eliora
    Junia
    Keturah
    Magdalen
    Ines
    Irisa
    Lucinda
    Olivette

    Sure there are more but those come to mind first. Good luck!

    But if we mention them on nameberry they will probably become hot on nameberry! I really like some -ette names and they seem generally unpopular everywhere! I really like Bernadette, Annette, Suzette...I think they're adorable but no one seems to agree!

    OK, you want a rare name?
    I'd look for something Welsh. They have names rarely seen outside Wales.

    Mind you, they may not be easily prn.

    Leontyne
    Niamh
    Saoirse
    Tourmaline - as in the gemstone. Not on nameberry at all.
    Shoshana
    Hesper - Evening star goddess. Aurora gets all the play. Not on nameberry.
    Evanthe
    Iolantha - yo-lan-thuh.
    Keziah - Biblical girls' name, pretty meaning, still never in the top 1000, a bit like Shoshana that way.
    Golda - A family name of mine, don't know if yet ripe for revival.
    Zephirine - "West wind" also there's a rose hybrid called Zephirine that is nearly thornless.
    Zelda - means "lucky" but a girl is "lucky" just to have this name as hardly anyone does.
