(And I don't mean you wouldn't use because there are close family members etc who have the name. I mean more that you absolutely love, but don't have the balls to use)

Mine is....

Demetrious.

I have known a few in my time and absolutely love the name, but not sure I could do it...

I love Lucius and if I’d had a son I’d have fought my DH to use it!

I really love the way Mordecai sounds but have zero Jewish heritage.

I do know two Ezekiels (Zeke) and one Hephzibah (Zippy), but I move in odd circles!

Arbella because we've got Leeds accents and everyone would think we were saying R'Bella.

Fox. No child of mine would ever suit the name Fox.
