I've looked around at all the new brand new shiny names out there, and dh and I just can decide on one. So we have decided to try and restore a name another MN poster doesn't want anymore. So if you have any names you've out-grown, are a little too old fashioned for you or simply not to your taste but you see how someone else might like them, feel free to donate them here...cannot offer any incentives other than the promise to give all offers due consideration smile

Zoscha....pronounced Zowshar....it's a real name...it's Polish.
It's the name of the daughter I never had and of the last of our Polish relatives.

Agree with Genevieve. I've known 2 & think it's a great original name. Also love Cara, Annie, Jeanie,Daisy. For a boy, Rory.

Frieda - I love it,but a close friend has used it

Rufus - ditto

Rudi - I used it on the cat <head/desk>

Myrtle - DP vetoed

Merewen (meh-reh-wen) - too long for our surname but so pretty

Paccia (pash-ee-a) - ditto

Oh and all the O ending names I can't use as we have an Arlo:

Pablo
Cato
Otto
Milo
Theo
Kitto
