what are some of your favourite non popular girl names / underused girl names? I love elegant but simple names such as Violet and Harper but they are too popular for me sad

Eilidh, Saffron, Lula, Meghan, Aria, Josephine,

spread I know of 5 Harper's under the age of 2. Only 1 Violet though.

Yeah very high on the popularity lists, worried they are "trendy" too

Really? Fair enough. I love Violet but Harper is too harsh sounding.

Ophelia? I know someone who named her daughter this recently, but I've not heard it anywhere else.

Raya. I would definitely of used if I had a girl.
I also love and think these should be more popular than they are:
Honor, Liberty, Sadie, Maeve, Tashi, Alicia.
I'm sure there's more.

Meredith.

Absolutely adore it. Know one adult called it. No children.

Was first on my girls list every time but had four boys!

EsmesBees Tue 25-Apr-17 07:30:59

Verity, Cecilia, Cecily, Celeste, Estelle

Felicity
Stephanie
Rachel
Joanna
Verity

Or the olde fashioned names that have not quite made a full come back

Beryl
Audrey
Ada
Nell
