    Tell me a name I haven't heard before!

    I kept my list of favorite names on my phone (bad move!), and the note accidentally got deleted. So, I've decided to use this as a chance to make a brand new list.

    Like my title says - tell me some names that I haven't heard before as well as how to pronounce them. I'm looking for names that are rare/underused/interesting/etc.

    I'm hoping that this will be a way to find new inspiration for my name list, and also I'm hoping that it will inspire other people as well with new names to add to their lists!

    Here's a few to get you started:
    Loic -male, LOW + IK, old French name that seems to be coming back in style (100 year rule?)... At least, I have a friend who would like to use it if her DH will let her In French, there are 2 dots on the I, like in Noel.
    Ludivine - female, LOO + duh + veen (French pronunciation), same friend's friend from France... But they haven't added this to NB yet
    Ksenia -female, one of my DH's Russian colleagues, Kuhn + Sen + ya

    Judicaël - pronounced: JU-dah-kyle, basically, or JU-dah-kale. Breton/Old French name.

    Maximian - pronounced: max-IHM-ee-uhn. A Roman ruler (Marcus Aurelius Maximianus).

    Alvar - pronounced: AL-ver. This is basically the same name as Oliver, meaning "elf ruler"

    Aelfric/Elfric/Alfer - see above

    Jove - pronounced just as it looks, JOHV, another name for the god Jupiter.

    Leonid - pronounced LAY-oh-nid or LAY-oh-need, a variation of Leo/Leon/Leonidas etc

    Ansgar - AHNS-gar. I think it means weapon of god, so, kind of a lot.
