There are definitely some out-there names on this list...but there are a few I rather like!

Arielle: I prefer Ariel or Ariella, but I think any variation of this name is so pretty!
Clarissa: I've always sort of liked this name. Not my fave, but it's really cutesy and seems like it would age well.
Violah: I like Viola much much better...on the right kind of girl, I think it'd be stunning.
Rissa: It seems a little like a nickname to me, but I like it anyways! It's a little quirky and fun.
Coraly: I love Cora...Coralee or even Coraley would be nicer I think, but the sound of it is very pretty.
Meesha: This written version isn't quite as nice as Micha, but I like the way it sounds regardless.
Nakita: I actually prefer this to Nikita, and I think it really is a nice alternative to Nicole or Nicolette.
Josslyn: I think this name has such a boho, laid-back vibe...I LOVE it.
Venice: something I would never actually name a child, but if I heard it on one of my peers I'd be a little jealous of her super-cool name.


Zane: This has always seemed like the too-cool-for-school kid's name to me. I like it.
Nolan: This has the sweet vibe of Noah for me...I think it's precious.
Keegan: I'm not that crazy about this name itself, but it has great connotations for me. I think it's a nice name.
Lyle: This just oozes adorable to me! It's like Kyle, which is a great name, but even better because it's kitchy and cool and unique.
Jaret/b]: I think this is such a cool variation of Jared. I love it.
Micah: one of my all-time favorites. I wish more people loved this name!!
Duncan: My very first guilty-pleasure ever. I started loving it when I was little after that Disney movie "My Date with the President's Daughter"...I think it's adorable in such a non-adorable way.
Dustin: I love most -in or -on or -en names. Dustin, Tristin, Westin...they're all adorable.
[b]Carlton
: Same as above, and I love this one more because it's super-uncommon but not like made-up unique.

Aww, Thanks guys for spending the time to post! :)

My favorites would have to be:
Viennah - It reminds me of Venice. like, it sounds kind of..flowy and classy
Arielle - I just love this name! it reminds me of a butterfly for some reason. Just sounds soft. kind of like the name Bella.
Trinity - I believe in God so this is kind of significant, 'cause it means 'father, son and the holly spirit'! plus, its just a georgous name in general - i think. hehe
Zelda - though i wouldnt name my daughter that, i could imagine haveing a wise lovely grandma named that. if she was greek or romanian.
Coraly - i like this name, though it reminds me of Broccoli haha. its still cute!
Nakita - i really like this name, i could imagine a cute little indidan girl with somewhat curly short hair.
Jaylan - this is an OK name. but i think thise spelling variation is better "Jaylen"
Josslyn - i love this name! like you said, it provides you with a laid back ye still crisp vibe!
Venice - i like this somewhat allot. though i wouldnt name my daughter it!
Kaytrin - though up there its spelt Katrin. i like this spelling allot better. i really like this name. it reminds me of a sweet polite young girl.

Who likes the name Isolde? after seeing that movie 'Tristen and Isolde' now i reallly like it. haha
Oh and i love the name Tristen..
but my cousins already named that.
:/

Lyle - i would have to agree, its so cute! i love it. (:
Jaret - this is an OK name in my likeing
Micah - i love Micah, it screams 'im not gay' its the perfect amount of ting to is. when i hear micah i thikn of a fairly toned guy
Ezra - love this name, though my cousins named it so sonw it goes the toilet. lol
Dustin - its cute - kind of like Dunstan
Caspian - after Narnia..i like this name. lol. I havnt seen it. but the adverts are just as good :P
Sean - this is alright - i found out the other day that sean can be short for John?! or maybe its the otherway around. but what can be shorter then John? lol
Dirran - i love this name. because...its different.

Other names i like for boys would be Jasper, Domanic, Luccouse, Luccas, Jaimee

Other names for girls i like Hailey, Rainn or Rayn Katrina and Alyssa.

Like Alot:

Arielle - I absolutely love this name. It's on my list
Trinity - this name is also on my list. I love it
Mckenzie - very nice
Neve - like it alot
Nakita
Jaylan
Josslyn - I like Jocelyn better but it's still a nice name
Phoebe - I love it


Zane - i have always been a fan of this name
Keegan
Kieran
Micah - guilty pleasure of mine. i love it
Vaughn - i actually really like this name. Ever since I first saw the TV Show "Alias"
Drake
Donevan - I like the spelling Donovan better, but I have always loved this name. It is so handsome
Caspian - another guilty pleasure of mine. Very handsome and i just love it
Sean
Blaze
Domanic - If this is pronounced the original way, like Dominic, I love it. But it looks like it's pronounced Demonic.
Jasper - I really love this name. It's on my list, along with Dominic.

** I'm sorry if I am too blunt with this next list, but I would hate for a child to hate their name. I know some of them may seem cool now, but it would stink if the kid really hates it and wonders why they got stuck with such a weird name.

Don't Like At All:

Viennah - like the sausages? I wouldn't be able to take the name seriously
Libyla - either way i pronounce it, i am not a fan
Margarita
Koree - I like Corey but not this spelling
Katrinity - very unique but it's not my style. I'm sure it works great on you though
Katrin - it just seems like it's an unfinished name. Like not quite Katrina..
Beulina ('bue-lin-ah') - not my style at all
Tiaamii - it seems like there are way too many letters for this name
Vixen - the meaning of this is not something i would want for a little girl
Tazmania

Jackles - for real?
Aranda
Hutch
Casanova - " "

Again, I'm sorry for being so outspoken about this. Ultimately, it will be your choice. I am just giving my opinion

I like:

Margarita- Okay, I wouldn't want my daughter to be named after a drink, so this particular spelling is too out ther.Though, I love Margaret, Marguerite or Margherita.
Arielle*- It's not my favorite name, but definitely very pretty.
Karaley ('Car-ah-lee')- I actually like the sound, but the name doesn't seem quite right. Maybe I'd use Cara Leigh, which would produce the same sound but using two different names that I love.
Celica- This looks made up, but I adore Celia and also Cecelia.
Clarissa*- Looks and sound sophisticated. Kind of like a princess- I also like Clarisse. I'd probably use it as a middle name, but Clare could be a cute nickname.
Violah*- The H looks unnecessary, but I think Viola is stunning.
Neve- It meens "Snow" in Italian :) I think Nevia would be an equally unique variation.
Phoebe*- Very pretty and not too common.


I really like:


Kieran- Very unique, I love it.
Jaret- I much prefer this to Jared, which looks a little bland.
Marius- It reminds me of the italian name Mario, which is also my best friend's name. It would work well in the middle spot!
Micah- One of my favorites. I admit it might sound feminine (I've seen it spelt Myka for girls), but Micah James is one of my favorite names for a boy!
Ezra- I've literally fallen in love with it. It has a wonderfully handsome feeling to it.

Also,

Nolan
Ivan
Jerome
Darius
Dorian
Drake
Duncan
Donevan- though I prefer the spelling Donovan.
Caspian- Cash would make a cute nickname.
Sean

are not so bad.

Yas, from your list I quite like


Livia*
Sabrina
Temperance*
Stella
Lyra (L-eye-ruh)*
Clover

Cassius
Justice*
Cullen
Broderick* - Again, it's insanely handsome. And how cute would it be to use Brody for a kid?

Sweet list, Yasmine. :) These funky names are too fun!

I like:
Avalon: I think this is just a pretty word. We used a font called Avalon in our yearbook last year (haha), and I loved saying it all the time! It just rolls off the tongue so nicely. :P
Ainsley: This is cute. It gives me the impression of a girl who's cute, but in a sort of tomboyish way.
Livia: I love Olivia...this is kind of a unique spin that works, IMO.
Lorelei: Gilmore Girls! Haha instant connotation...but it's such a pretty name anyways.
Athena: I am in love with this name! I think it's gorgeous, but I just can't picture it on an actual person...except maybe the extra-smart to the point of being stuck up type...but it's just too pretty!
Nayeli: Very cute. I like N- names for girls I think...most of them come across as being very sophisticated to me.
Calliope/Callico/Calypso nn Callie: Calliope! Callico=a cat, and Calypso is just a little too much for me. But I think that Callie's an adorable nickname, and Calliope (or, even better, Callista!) is a lovely first name.
Acacia: I've always thought this would make a nice name! Unfortunately the city I live in has a park called Acacia Park with some not-so-good connotations...lots of crime, homelessness, etc., so it wouldn't exactly be a perfect name here. It's a shame...I love it anyways!
Luna: I WISH I was the kind of girl cool enough to have such a beautiful, different name!!
Stella: SO PRECIOUS. I seriously adore Stella!! It makes me think of an adorable, quirky, but extra-girly girl.
Nova: Reminds me of Novalee from Where the Heart Is. I think it's another one of those words that's so pretty it should be a name.
Aerilyn: It has a really nice breezy feel for me (probably because it starts with "air"...lol). It reminds me of my favorite guilty pleasure that everyone else on the planet hates, Arlen.
Justice: Such a nice name on a boy! It might help that I once knew a guy named Justice who was GORGEOUS (hehe), I always picture somebody pretty buff and good-looking, with good manners. Oh, connotation!
Alder: I don't know why I like this one...I just do! I picture a quirky photographer or something.
Leif: I just think this has a very unique feel without being girly or hard to say...something pretty uncommon in boys names.
Cyrus: I love this name itself, but now that I'm reading it all I can think about is that guy on TLC or whatever who designs pageant dresses! Ah!
Cullen: Probably a little too Twilight nowadays, but I think it's really an awesome name. Very strong and classy.
Aiken: I think this name is so sweet! I just love it. ;)
Canyon: I'm drawn to this name for a reason that I cannot comprehend...it's SO not my style! I can picture a Taylor Lautner look-alike being named Canyon, and obviously that isn't terrible. :o

Absolutely love Trinity, Violah, Coraly, Jaylan and Venice.
However, Nevaeh is SO oveused and trendy, I just don't understand why... <_< I know multiple people who have named their daughters Nevaeh, I just don't get it!

And for boys, I'm a fan of Winston, Keegan and Micah...
