I don't think they're wierd. The only one i really don't like is Gypsy, i've never thought it makes a good name. I like the others though.

Gypsy--I dislike word names. A gypsy doesn't have the best connotation
Skyla--Its okay, but not really my style. I prefer just Skye
Skylin--It sounds a little made up. Skye, Skyler, or Skyla would be better options
Laena--I would pronounce this as LYE-na, but I know thats probably not right. I'm not liking it, sorry.
Luna--I love that is the latin word for moon. And I think that's a neat for a name. among my other favorite latin words that could be used as names are: Stella (star), Caela (sky), Vera (spring), Bella (war), Nova (new). They aren't necessarily names i'd use, but I think they're neat
Aislynn--how do you say it? I'm not liking it
Aurelia---too frilly for my taste. it reminds me of an Ari- name (like Ariella, Ariana, etc) and there's just something I don't like about those names
Aerilyn--is it pronounced EYE-er-lin--sort of like Ireland? not sure if I like it or not...
Joella--I prefer just Joelle
Catalina---reminds me of the salad dressing haha
Noella--as with Joella, I prefer just Noelle
Amethyst---there are many gems that can be used as names. I feel that this is not one of them. How about Ruby, Jade, Opal, Pearl, Gemma, or Amber.
Sage--I think this makes a cute middle name.


There are only a few I think are really out there and wouldn't recommend using. Other than that, even though I wasn't really a fan of a handful of them, I think they'd still make fine names (:

Gypsy- I don't really think this is weird I just don't think of it as a name.
Skyla- Again, I don't think it is weird just not my style.
Skylin- A little weird, I think people should stick with Kailyn not Skylin.
Laena- I don't really like this name, it is a little too out there for me, I like Lina better.
Luna- I guess this one isn't too bad, but I still would stick with Lina.
Aislynn- I agree with Permanent Rose on this, I don't really know how to say it and don't really like it at all.
Aurelia- I don't really like this at all, too different for me.
Aerilyn- This one is a little to weird and I don't like the spelling at all.
Joella- I would stick with just Joelle no 'a' on the end.
Catalina- I don't necessarily dislike this name, but I like it better with a K not a C.
Noella- Same with Joella, I would stick with Noelle.
Amethyst- I do like gem names but I don't really think this is on the top of my list.
Sage- I like this one but more for a cute, short middle name.

Gypsy- Not really liking it as a first name...it reminds me of the musical "Gypsy". Which I love, but I wouldn't personally use it.
Skyla- It's okay. I prefer Skylar or just plain Sky(e).
Skylin- A tad trendy with the -lin ending. As I said above, I prefer Skye/Skylar.
Laena- Not sure how you are pronouncing it. LAY-nuh? LYE-nuh? LEE-nuh? I would prefer Alaina or Lena.
Luna- It is cute. Might make a nice middle name.
Aislynn- Not really crazy about it.
Aurelia- It's a mouthful. NMS, sorry.
Aerilyn- Not sure how to pronounce it. I don't think I'm crazy about it.
Joella- It's okay. It reminds me of Joel...which is very manly, imo. Maybe you would like Jolie?
Catalina- I like this one. Not my favorite but it's cute.
Noella- Prefer just Noelle, but it isn't bad.
Amethyst- Not crazy about this particular "gem" name. Pearl, Gemma, or Ruby might suit your fancy.
Sage- I like it. It's a little spunky, would make a great middle name!

Gypsy - Personally, I don't like this at all for a name.
Skyla - I think this is a cute, girly name.
Skylin - It's okay, but as others said, it's a tad too trendy sounding. You seem to want a very unique name and I think this would end up blending in with all the other -lin, -len, -lyn names.
Laena - I'm pronouncing this LAY-nuh. I'm not fond of the spelling but it's a cute name.
Luna - This is okay but I have a hard time seeing this on a baby because my dog's name is Luna.
Aislynn - Not sure how to pronounce this. I'm not really liking it.
Aurelia - Kind of too much of a mouthful.
Aerilyn - I'm pronouncing this AIR-uh-lyn. The spelling is cute. This is one of my favorite ones from this list.
Joella - This is okay. Not really fond of it or any variations of it.
Catalina - I don't like this as a name for a baby. I think of the salad dressing as well.
Noella - I really like this. Very cute.
Amethyst - Don't like it as a name.
Sage - This is okay. Not really my style but I think it could be a cute middle name.
