My List: What Do You Think?
Here are my favorites, which I've realized are ridiculously not unique according to nameberry standards
Any input/suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!

lol, most of my favorites are not unique enough for most Berries, either. Sometimes, having an obscure name can be a bit overrated, I think. I like a lot of your choices!
Audrina - pretty. I like Audrey (which is even more popular!) more, personally, but I think it's because Audrina is frillier (and has the association to The Hills), while Audrey is a bit more classic.
Larisa - interesting. I like Lara, Marisa, Marissa, Clarissa, Clarisse, and even Melissa more than Larisa/Larissa, though... there's just something about it that has never struck me.
Jolene - pretty, but I don't like the association to the song. It strikes me as a bit dated, too, but it's probably because the only one I've known is my mom's age, and it sounds similar to other dated -lene names like Darlene, Marlene, Arlene, and Charlene...
Ruby - love! I've recently come to terms that I'll likely not use Ruby as a FN but I think it's a fabulous choice for others! I would love to use it as a MN someday, though.
Isabella - like a lot! I like the French Isabelle more, but Isabella definitely has her charm and there's a reason she's the number one name! I love Izzy, Bella, Ella, etc. as nns, too.
Cosette - I'm not a huge Colette/Cosette fan, but it is a nice name.
Trista - I prefer Krista personally, but Trista is cute.
Nora - don't love it, but I actually like Norah. It's surprising what one letter does!
Whitney - feels dated to me but I used to like it for the nn Whit!
Lydia - lovelovelove! Lydia is so charming. I love that she was the first Christian believer in Europe, according to the Bible. Which is half of its appeal to me (that, and the nn Lydie!). It's currently on my top 10.
Lucy - I used to not be a huge fan of this, but I met a wonderful and charming Lucy yesterday and I'm starting to see its appeal! I prefer Lucia, and I probably wouldn't use it, but it is a nice name. That, and there's a wonderful member on here with the name Lucy, and she's kind of given me an appreciation for the name, as well.
Gemma - like a lot! Gemma and Genevieve were on my list at one point, and I decided I couldn't have a Gem and a Genn... and I ended up nixing both! I like Genevieve more now, but Gemma is still... well, a gem.
Genevieve - love! This just narrowly missed being added to my top 10 this time around, but I absolutely love it! I like the nns Ginny and Evie for it right now.
Sally - feels like a grandma name to me still, but I love other diminutives of Sarah (especially Sadie).
Elise - charming and girly. I love it. Magdalena Elise is still on my long list. I went through a period of thinking Elise was a bit boring and dated, but when I see it here I can't help but love it. Maybe it'll find its way back onto my list again...
Ramona - used to hate it (really hate it), but it's grown on me over the past several months and I really love it now! I doubt I would use it but it is really nice. I like the idea of Genevieve Ramona as a combo.
Vienna - like a lot.
Nathan - for some reason I'm not a huge fan of Nate names. Nathan is handsome and respectable... I just don't love it! Sorry.
Ryan - somewhat classic but a bit tired where I am. It's still a lovely name, though.
Jackson - I prefer just Jack, personally. I love -son names but not Jackson, for some reason!
Clay - I feel like I should love this (and I used to love Clayton), but I'm not a huge fan anymore. Maybe it's because I love the similar-sounding Gray...
Bowen - like a lot! I once heard a story about a wonderful baby named Bowen... he was diagnosed with multiple heart problems before he was born, and was in heart surgery before he was a week old... he's been through cardiac arrest and just continues to shine and is such a happy little boy... I can't help but think of him every time I hear this name. I love it, and I love the nn Bo/Beau for it.
Lennon - eh, okay, but I'm not crazy about the John Lennon association. I like Lennox a lot more!
Colton - cute! I love Cole and I think Colton is a handsome fuller version.
Cash - okay, but I like Ash or Dash more. I think Cassius (CASH-us is how I would say it), nn Cash, would be really handsome.
Roger - too dated for me, but I would endorse it with a family connection! It just seems too grandpa-ish for me, sorry.
Griffin - I love Finn names but Griffin is one I've never understood! It's a fine name--I just don't understand all the hype around it. I like Finnegan, Phineas, Finn, Flynn, and Finlay all much more.
Gavin - love! It doesn't get a lot of love around here but it doesn't really get much hate, either. It's fairly common but a really handsome boys' name, imo! My coworker recently named her son Gavin and I think it's such a handsome, cool choice.
Ruby, Isabella, Genevieve, Lydia, Vienna, Bowen, Colton, and Gavin are my favorites!

Don't feel bad. None of the names on my list are unique enough for most of the Berries either. Welcome to the club!

Vienna (this one is lovely, and it's not at all popular. Vivian, however, is very popular.)
-Both of these are great, solid names. I really like them both.Girls - Abigail, Georgianna, Anne, Charlotte, Claire, Genevieve, Annette, Eliza, Felicity, Hannah, Noelle, Eugenie, Grace, Phoebe, Philippa, Cecilia, Cecily, Elizabeth, Hollis, Piper, Lorelei, Vivienne, Paige, Carolina, Isobel, Lucy, Molly, Georgia, Victoria, Naomi
Boys - Bobby Sparklefritz until H can offer suggestions. Ones I like: Rory, Owen, Tyler, Ian, Elliot, Alexander, Ephraim, Levi, Jacob, Reid, Avery, Nathan, Miles, Jasper, Spencer, Toby, Dean, Philip
