Hi! Serious question. I'd like to compile a list of girls names that are a little unusual and uncommon. If they are made up names they have to have a long traceable history as with Vanessa.

My list so far:
Nerissa
Meriel
Marina

Thank yousmile

Thank you everyone.

Her first and last name are quite ordinary. We want something a little less so for middle name and have o family members etc we wish to honour so keep the ideas coming.

Oh you know what I mean! All words are made up too. New fangled spandangled names like Joshlina.
