Seen this somewhere else before and it threw out some brilliant names and unusual choices so....
your guilty pleasure names, names you love but perhaps wouldn’t use

I adore Seraphina, Clementine & Evangeline.

It's just as well we had boys as there's absolutely no way DH would have agreed to any of them. And I don't think I'd have dared to use them anyway.

Another one for Cleopatra here! And Cassiopeia.

Why haven't I heard of these names? Am I too working class or common? Wouldn't have a clue how to pronounce any, and never heard of any one with these names. I feel like I'm on a different planet here. Asking for a friend confused
