Truly unique names?

Was just thinking the other day of a girl I was in primary school with, called Jera. Pronounced Jerra, rather than Jeer-a, IYSWIM.

I have never met, heard of, read about any other Jera ever, fictional or real, and it got me thinking about other unique names.

Is there anyone you've met or heard of with a name you've never heard of before or since?

I don't mean yooneek, as in Kate being spelled Kayte, or backwards names like Nevaeh.

Another one I have is Carolie, which I think is lovely, but I suspect there is probably more than one out there.

(Admittedly, I have never googled Jera and don't want to as I want to believe it's truly unique ha smile )

My old Irish boss was Jenty, but known as Mary. Lovely name.

Anniella instead of Daniella so that is was more unusual!

Keren - I knew her when I was very young so assumed it was normal but never heard another.
Ilinaya - character in a book and I thought it was pretty but never heard it again.
