    Unique but still pronounceable and pretty!

    Which one would you choose?

    Troian (troy-an)
    Alexandrie (alexan-dree)
    Elke (elle-kuh)

    Or something more common?

    Camille
    Isabela
    Natasha/Natalya
    Elsa

    I'd go for Elke. Alexandrie is also nice. I think Troian is definitely unique and pronounceable, I just don't like it.

    I like Troian because I never heard it before, it's very unique and unisex.

    Second goes for Elke but pronounced how it looks (el-kee). If you want el-kuh you should spell it Elkah.

    The rest seem too feminine.

    I love Elke so it gets my vote. Sweet, simple and spunky. In regard to pronunciation though, I imagine many English-speakers unfamiliar with the name might say ELK or EL-kee. I'd say spelling it Elka would make things a lot clearer.

    Alexandrie is lovely, and a nice change on a common classic. That said, again, being unfamiliar, I'd say you might possibly run into problems with people spelling it in a way that is familiar to them, as in Alexandra or Alexandria.

    Troian just makes me think 'Bellisario' & 'Pretty Little Liars' and I only watched a few episodes of that show, and several years ago at that. It is such an unusual name though, so that would be why it stuck in my mind, as it's the only association I have. It's interesting and I think that it would fit in well with all of the more modern names (being traditionally a surname based on Trojan, with that 'weight' that many seem to be enjoying especially for girls lately).

    I like Elke the best. Then Alexandria and Troian. Troian seems more like a boy name to me.

    I think Troian is too tied to Troian Bellisario, and the fact it looks like Trojan.

    Elke is pretty, but I also like your more common option of Isabela.
