Names you've never heard of before

I enjoy the unique names. Not necessarily off the wall, but subtle names you’ve never heard used, and recently heard used and thought “Thats a nice name”

For example, [name]Suri[/name] ([name]Katie[/name] and [name]Tom[/name])

I like the name [name]Harbor[/name] (never heard it used) and [name]Lyra[/name] (I only knew of one person having this name)

Before I saw the film “Match Point” a few years ago, I’d never heard the name [name]Nola[/name] before. I think it’s so striking and unique, without being too creative or out-there.

I recently did a video with 10 very uncommon names.

Recently met a little girl named Xyla. Not usually something I’d like, but I found it really sweet.

I’ve heard of an Orangeanella. Definitely not my style though!!

editing to add: I should have read your original post better-- these are supposed to be names we thought were subtle and nice. Ooops! This one is definitely in the “off-the-wall” category!

I just heard of Crizam, I made a post on here, but no one seems to know anything about the name :frowning:

I recently came across the name [name]Leta[/name].

I think it has such a unique, understated beauty to it. Useable too.

I came across Katsa while reading the book Graceling. I thought it was a cool [name]Kat[/name] alternative to other [name]Kat[/name] names. It also reminds me of [name]Katniss[/name]. In fact, most of the names in that book series are unusual and for me at least, unheard of. Another name in that book I thought was kinda cute is Bitterblue.

Totally agree on Katsa, a better alternative to [name]Katniss[/name]. I was just thinking that the other day. I also loved [name]Sapphire[/name] on a boy in Bitterblue, the sweetest thing ever :). I always wanted to hear someone use [name]Lyra[/name] and I never knew why nobody did. I’d like to meet either an [name]October[/name] or a [name]November[/name]. A couple weeks ago, I met an Oliviette, an [name]Ira[/name], and an [name]Una[/name], which was a pleasant suprise

When hubby and I were house hunting early in 2011, our realtor was named Tazim, pronounced tah-ZEEM. I wish I had asked her the origin of her name!!

Agree with [name]Sapphire[/name] on a boy! I always thought of it as more feminine until I read Bitterblue. Now I think [name]Sapphira[/name] is the more feminine version.

I’m not a fan of one syllable names, but I met a little boy named [name]Ry[/name] and have grown to appreciate that.
I also met a boy named Tarkyn…
