Favorite uncommon names?

What are your favorite unusual/uncommon names for both girls and boys? I’m not talking outside the top 100, more like outside the top 500 and especially your favorites outside the top 1000. Thanks!

I love Uncommon names my faves are:

[name]Doutzen[/name] (in love with it!)
[name]Carys[/name] (i hope this stays uncommon, but I doubt it will, its my number one girls name)
[name]Marielle[/name] (I also hope this stays uncommon)
[name]Constance[/name] (i love this, I hate [name]Connie[/name])
Anique (this is my grandma’s name!) said like Ahn-eek (rhymes with [name]Dominique[/name])
Ymre (this is a Dutch name, and I think the prouncouniation would be a major problem- its said Im-ree)
[name]Sistine[/name] (I am totally loving this name at the moment)

[name]Otto[/name] (I am obsessed with this, but my boyfriend hates it)
[name]Kieran[/name] (number 516 and probably not going to be unique or uncommon soon!)
[name]Malcolm[/name] (number 602- I hope it stays there! I adore the nickname [name]Mac[/name])
[name]Van[/name] (this is the first part of my last name i am a [name]Van[/name] _____, and I think its great and short and lovely)
[name]Seamus[/name] (number 813)
[name]Lloyd[/name] (my grandpa’s name)

I think that about covers it…

I have a few, but I absoultely [name]LOVE[/name] the name [name]Verity[/name]. I don’t think I’d be brave enough to use it though.

My favourite uncommon names is [name]Zora[/name], at least I think thats how its spelled. I dont really know if other names I like are really that uncommon. I mean, my favourite name is [name]Zoey[/name] and thats not uncommon. Then I guess my second is [name]Summer[/name] which isnt uncommon anymore really.

I diont check to see where my fav names are on the lists of popularity, but I like…
For Girls…

For Boys…

I have a hard time with boys names because i can’t seem to find uncommon names that I like all that much. All of my favorites are pretty common. But these are pretty cool. I would definitely use them as a mn.

Well, I don’t know where they stand…but I don’t hear these often, so hopefully they are not too popular.

[name]Alberta[/name] (as a middle name)

Ligouri (probably as a middle name)

Yeah, I have a harder time coming up with male names. If I ever have b/g twins (or maybe just a son and a daughter), I plan currently plan on naming the girl [name]Adah[/name] [name]Alberta[/name] (the mn after my beloved late step-grandmother, for my step-dad) and the boy [name]Ezra[/name] [name]Nathaniel[/name]. I think the names go well together. I was planning on using [name]Aria[/name] with [name]Ezra[/name], until I found out that a teenage girl named [name]Aria[/name] has an affair with her teacher, [name]Ezra[/name], on a TV show.

Great names. I kind of like [name]ADA[/name] better with out the H. [name]Ada[/name] mean [name]Fairy[/name] in Spanish Very cute. I also [name]LOVE[/name] [name]Ezra[/name] but DH said it was a no go. UGH
