I love Albertine, Juna and Indiana for girls.

Ignacio for a boy!

not sure if would be classed as unusual as opposed to a bit out there but I. following someone on Instagram who hasnt long had a girl named ocean which I think is really pretty

Bowen sounds too like Bowel. It is also a type of skin cancer. I can see why it’s unusual.

I love Willa and Hesper

I like Allegra too OP. I also like Aurelia and Evangeline.

I like a lot of 'nature' inspired names like Storm, Winter, Sorrel and Orion.

Allegra is beautiful, op. I also love it!

I think Clothilde is beautiful. Also love Patience, Prudence, Joscelin and Enid

I quite like Camelot for a boy and Tybalt as well as Taliesin

Hesper reminds me of Herpes, so I understand what you mean. We connect certain names and sounds with other objects and things.

Tybalt? As in the Prince of Cats and all round bad guy?

I like Wren, Pearl and Nell for a girl and prefer simpler boys names - Gabe, Zach and Seb so less unusual

@17caterpillars1mouse I also like Taliesin but the pronunciation often gets butchered which is annoying. It’s 3 syllables not 4, Tal-YES-in not tal-ee-ES-in.
