Names that just don't feel quite right

Do you guys have any names that you absolutely love, but you won’t/can’t use, not because of any concrete reason, like not pairing well with your surname, but because they just don’t feel like “you”? I call them my “in another life…” names.

Here are some of mine
Yetta
Edina
Melody
Haven

Daniel
Angelo
Avi
Oscar
Salvador

For me at the moment, I’d put [name_u]Sasha[/name_u], [name_u]Jesse[/name_u], [name_u]Percy[/name_u], [name_u]Quincy[/name_u], [name_m]Amadeus[/name_m] and [name_m]Barnaby[/name_m]. I’m well aware these are all for boys but I find myself more attached to my girls names or at least with a solid reason not to use them
