First baby - quirky names please! :)

Hello

I'm pregnant with my first baby - very exciting!
I'm thinking about names and would like some suggestions, I'm hoping I will pick up some ideas on here.
Not sure what we're having... but can't help thinking it's a girl! So all the names I have so far are girls names.
I really don't want a usual name, mine and my sister's names are both very unusual and I've always felt a little bit special to be the only one with my name in the school etc!
Looking for any quirky, unusual (possibly names from other countries?) suggestions for either boy or girl please smile

Thanks!
Look forward to reading!

Well, what are your girls names? That would give us ideas to base name suggestions off.

Ah yes sorry!

We like shorter names so far, things like

Scout
Asa (usually a boy's name but quite like it for a girl!)
Immy
Nova

etc!

Tarquin or Jocasta? wink

I like short names too... I liked Kit for a boy or Wren for a girl - was vetoed on both by DP! Not crazy quirky but kind of different.

I love Asa - v good choice.
