    I absolutely adore Beatrice / Beatrix but everyone I know can't pronounce it correctly and that would forever annoy me so I can't use it.
    I pronounce it Be-ah-trice / Be-ah-trix
    Everyone else I know pronounces it's beat-rice / beat - rix.

    I would say 90% of the names I love would never make an ACTUAL short list of baby names. So, way too many to list. The ones that come to mind immediately are Gertrude, Persephone, Atalanta, Isabella, Oceane, Afton, Hannah, Christiana, Belle, Seraphina... for various reasons.

    When I was pg last year, I loved the name Emmanuella for a girl. I didn't want to shorten it and at 5 syllables it was just too much of a mouthful.
    We also like Kormak for a boy (DH's family has a tradition of using names that start with K, so Cormac wouldn't have worked). We looked it up and it is a legit spelling, but it just looked too kre8ive for our tastes.

    I love about 714 million names, and can only see myself using about 8. So... I'll just stick with some serious loves.
