I know an American Dafydd! One of my many cousins married a man named Dafydd. It gets some eyebrows when written but people get over the "strange" spelling quick & he gets lots of compliments. I would love to use Caoimhe, pn kee-va, or Eimear, pn ee-mer, but I'm scared of what people in my small town would do to those. I LOVE the Japanese name Megumi but my SO thinks I'm crazy (and not Japanese...). I refuse to take Jemima, Clementine, Ama, Mayme, Bluebell, or Nightengale off my list; but don't know if I'd be brave enough to actually use them. For the boys I'd love to be able to seriously consider these but I am hesitent: Bronislaw, Cavanaugh, Rye, Benek, Castle, Heronim, Lockwood, Constantine, Teos, Caldwell, & Thorn. There are some for a boy or a girl that I could only do in the middle (if at all) but I still love: Saturn, Candle, Linden, Blaze, Cicero, Arbor, Winter, & Zephyr.

It would have to be Calypso for me as well- i just love it! I can't really figure out why it seems so unusable though...it has a soft, lilting sound, lovely musical associations, history, andthe adorable nickname Caly, but it still feels way out there. It will stay on my list though.
A favourite from my teens is Viva which i still love but could never use because it is a brand of paper towels over here in the Uk!Proud Mama to a beautiful Juni-bug and expecting our second 27th May 2014.
I'm always on my phone so please excuse my short replies and terrible punctuation!

Indiana for a girl...I love the nickname Indy, but Indiana Jones and the state make Indiana a bit over-the-top/unusable for me at the moment.
Katniss...For some reason, I find the idea of seeing a little Katniss running around really adorable! In a more realistic view, I would probably use Katherine or Katerina or some Kat- name to get the nickname Katniss for a girl. Can't use now because of the Hunger Games.
Clove...Another Hunger Games name! I find Clove to be a strong name that is unusual, yet usable. Out of the girls names I listed, I think Clove is the most usable in today's world.
Mirai...pronounced (MEE-rah-ee). Its a Japanese name. Being half Chinese, I think it would be a bit odd to not use a Chinese name if I was to use an Asian name at all lol.~inside this teenberry's mind ~~Please vote on constantly changing middle name possibilities (updated 11/27/13)
Feel free to comment and suggest!

I dont think I would have a problem using any of the names in my sig but I would hesitate to use Soizic because I dont love it enough to overlook the criticism. As much as I love Maxence Aristide the meaning is "the greatest, the best kind" and that's too much even for me.
I wont give up Joséphine; Joséphine Athénaïs and Ulysse Aristide are what I intend to name my kids but so for Ive come up with Josephine Ivy, Josephine Bérengère and Ulysse Ambrose as compromises to use depending on where we live.
I forgot, I really liked Vincenza for awhile but it sounds dumb when I try to say Italian names the right way

For girls: Tulip because it's my favorite flower, and Locket because it would be cool!
Boys and girls: a bunch of French, Japanese, and Welsh names that I love but would be hard to live with in the US.
