Most of the names I like are pretty unique for the US. I love names from mythology, and Gaelic names.

My DH and I love the name Carrington (I think we heard it on SYTYCD, she was one of the contestants) alas, it will not sound good with his last name, both ending in “en” sounding names.

We’re only TTC at the moment but we’re pretty sure we want to use Saoirse if we ever have a girl. I also love Liev and Valon for a boy but DH does not agree, lol.

I love Emory for a boy. I would love Emory James, but not everyone agrees with me. I think it’s a good solid boys name.

I really like the idea of Emerson as a middle name for a boy.

MrsMcQN:  I like Brynne and Avery for girls. I love old fashioned hardly used names.

One of my favorite girl names is Lena (pronounced Lay-na) and I’ve never met anyone with that name. If I had a daughter and named her that I would spell it Laina since a lot of people pronounce Lena as “Lee-na”.

As for boys, I want to use the name Vance for my son’s middle name. It’s a family name and I’ve only ever seen it used once outside my family.

MrsMcQN:  My favorite girls’ name ever is Magnolia. I’ve never heard anyone have that name in real life, only on a TV show (pretty dumb, right?). I probably won’t ever get to use it, but I wish!!! I love ultra-feminine names for girls.

MrsMcQN:  it can be pronounced sir-sha or seer-sha. We’d probably go with sir-sha though.

I heard of a girl called Tiara. 

Our daughters name is a bit ‘out there’. It’s a perfectly valid name though, it’s not celebrity-level unusual like Apple or Sunday or Cup A Soup (probably). I read it in a book many years ago and so far I’ve never had anyone recognise the name from the book and say, ‘oh, like in that Penny Vincenzi book’ 

It’s Oenone. We tend to call her Noni, same as the characters in the book. Eh-no-nee. 

I know of only one person who used to know a Noni and that girls name was Antonia.

MrsMcQN:  my little girls name is Liana (lee-on-uh) and I think I’ve only seen it a few times. 

Im big into unique name as Fi and I have somewhat unique names 🙂
