Most fancy etc I’ve met/know of:

Sibset of Jul!u$, R@phael & Theodore

Sisters Arabella and Herm!one, before HP and before Arabella became as popular as she is now. I still find her very grand, but I guess increased use will lessen that effect as we start to know more Arabella’s of different personalities and backgrounds.

Penelope
Elizabeth (I know it’s so popular, but 4 syllables with a Z and ending in ‘th’? It’s like Hephzibah to me!)

I once overheard an Algie who may have been an Algernon !

This YouTube family:
Romeo, Jerusalem, Cleopatra, Shakespeare, Omega, D’Artagnan, Nefertiti, KingJames, Leonardo and Aphrodite :astonished:

I feel like I must have met more people with fancy names than that but these are the ones I can remember off the top of my head.
