Odd, unusual, "strange" names?

-Sagittaria --I quite like this one, though I would obviously never use it in real life
Hope those help you get a good sense of the type of names I'm looking for. Thanks in advance!

Very sophisticated and won't be thought of as "strange."
What about the name Mosley?

Spry (might be neat for a young boy or tomboy character)
Arvensis (might make a decent last name)
Eglantine (not fond of the g but it kind of intrigues me)
Reine (Reine des violettes are a very pretty deep purple : )
Sedona (also a neat place)
Kordes (sorta like Cortez or cord-ees?)
Macrantha (I'd probably go Marcantha though)
Pimpinelli (maybe Pinelli or just Nelli)
Renaissance (I think the nn Renai would be cute but that's about all I like about it)
Pillar (seems plausible, people are using this as a name and variants of it currently)
Tulips (could use Tulip in and of itself)
Apricot (also a fruit and color)
Virichic (maybe a neat last name?)
Scherer (sounds neat as a boys name, the tulip is black in color)
Monte (the tulip is a vibrant orange and red mix resembling flames)
Monsella (last name or extravagant first name?)
Daisies (Daisy itself could work)
Fornax (I'd probably change it to Thornax and use it for a warrior type)
Brightest stars in the constellations
Capella (also related to singing, acapella)
Berenices (I'd just use Berenice, it's rare as is)
Labrum (Kind of like Abram, maybe spell it Labram instead?)
Alphard (almost like Alfred and Richard)
Rigel (almost like Nigel)
If I think of more I'll come back to post them.

Epsilon (neat boy name or last name)
Zeta (or Eta : ) it's another star though!)
Hadar (I'd use it as a last name)
Kaitos (I can't remember if there was a similar name in the first book or not...I think there was?)
Salm (rhymes with palm and calm)
Segin (not sure how it's pronounced, I prefer it as sayg-in but it's probably pronounced Seg-jin)
Suhail (Last name?)
Tien (seems interesting, unisex in nature I'd pronounce it tEE-en)
Tureis (first name or last name? Probably pronounced Ture (like sure)-Is but I'd pronounce it Tureese like a mix between Terry and Reese)
Ain (reminds me of the fairy/Celtic name Aine)
Alcyone (Al-see-own or Al-see-own-ay)
Alhena (Al-heen-uh, kind of like Eleena)
Alioth (kind of like Elliot with a lisp)
Alkaid (last name material I think)
Arich (Air-rich or Air-ick)
Ascella (like Priscilla)
Random names I think could work/Mythology names
Xenon (it's an element)
Aella (means whirlwind, kinda neat for a character : )
Ceriun (hopefully the star wars connection isn't too obvious 'cause I'm not all that star wars aware.)
Xochitl (Zo-sche, might want to change the spelling to something like Zochy)

I used Nymbler to search Katniss and came up with the names:
Many of the names in The Hunger Games are from The Tragedy of Julius Caesar. Here are some other Shakespearean names:
And here are a few of my own original names:

I see Nicodemus as a real name, but maybe that's just me? Hm..
I like the idea of using stars as names, because most people won't notice that.
Just an idea, the mc, should Astoria Winter?
