Most beautiful, unique girl's name you know?

Please help! Still on the hunt for a girls name and I love ones that are incredibly unique (perhaps only heard once or twice).

Would love your best suggestions! Needs to be incredibly feminine as the surname is very traditional English, long, clunky.

Names ending in 'A' sounds work well. Names with 'ella' sounds don't (So Aurelia, while I love it, won't work and is becoming too popular).

Names like Arietta, Aya, Elka, Allegra? I'm just not sure we love them enough. What is the most beautiful, unique girls name you have heard?

Middle name not settled, but will probably be something more well known (Juliette, Francesca, Cara, Amelie). Thanks for your help!

Hmmm. Tough but I love a challenge!

Stellina-little star in Italian

Roisin-little rose, Irish

Moira-variant of Mary

Tarian-Welsh...think it means shield?

Cordelia-maybe not very unique but so beautiful.

Also, do let me know if Arietta, Aya or Elka strike a good or bad chord with you!

I went to school with a
Jacinth
which I always though was lovely, and I have never come across another one.

Ayanna, Yolanda, Atalanta, Beata, kerensa

Seren, Ottilie, Willow. All strong but feminine. Not sure if they're obscure enough for you though!

All in the right direction and I love so many of them Ayanna, Yolanda, Willow... I acknowledge some may not be entirely unique... but that so often happens. One year you've never heard it, the next, it pops up everywhere! All are great ideas. Keep them coming!

Not really little known but there are not many girls named Maria, Anna or Louisa - all beautiful names. Also Clara or Eliza?

Damn, was going to say Erica but then spotted your username! fgrin

I love Anya, Clara and Eliza, but looking at your list I don't think they're quite the same style.

I like your names in your op, with the exception of Elka, it's just too much like 'elk' for my ears!

Also love the name Autumn, and only know of one person called this.

We have three Summers, two Willows and one Autumn in the same class!

So you might not get 'unique', whatever you choose. Beautiful and interesting, yes.

I liked the names on the 'posh girls' names' thread the other day. Do any of them suit you?

Cordelia?

Yolanda is not that unusual...
