I have a cousin named Gera, after a relative named Geraldine, and I've never heard it on anyone else. I also used to have a friend named Orlando when I was in elementary school.

Is Everson male or female? never heard of that name!
Nella is a pretty cool twist on Nellie!
Sophrana has creative parents, haha. I wonder if it was names put together to honor someone.

And I don't think Alicia is weird at all :) It's pretty!

Everson is a boy, Sophrana is my friend Kaylie's middle name I have no idea how her parents chose it. And thank you for your compliment of my name I definitely don't have to worry about being 1 of 5 in a group! I love the name Addy! I have a good friend named Addie.

Which ones are boys and which are girls?

Was Chesney legitimately named after Kenny Chesney, or was that just for pronunciation help?

I love Angus :wub: Never met one that was under 70, though, haha. I love it's "sibling" name Fergus, too!

Chesney was for pronounciation lol. It's a girl
Teagan (girl)
Angus (boy)
Malik (boy)

Hmm, I can't really think of any names that I found odd or abnormally interesting growing up. I'm sure there were some but nothing's coming to mind immediately. A

lthough I did meet a friend in high school named Blaze.

I had never heard of that as a name before. I used to love it and have it on my boys list.

Only other name I can think of now is a girl named Presley.

My Mum had a friend named Venetia, a name I have never heard even mentioned anywhere else, so it must be pretty unusual!

I also had a friend at school called Antonia, which isn't massively unusual but not common.
