Names that aren't conventionally attractive that you love?

I don't know if it's the hormones(time of month not pregnancy) but Prudence is beginning to have a certain charm. Somehow it seems adorable to me when I picture it on a little girl.

Prudence is nice. I know a little Brigid which I think is lovely.

I like names like Mary, Susan, Helen, which aren't loved on here

I quite like a virtue name and I know they don't generally go down well on mumsnet.
Prudence is nice as is Mercy and Faith.

I really like Gertrude. My DP and I say we should have chosen this for our DD1, as it would have suited her very well. Gerty is a nice nn for a little one.

I went to school with a Prudence back in the 80s. I remember thinking her name was a bit stuffy back then! But I think Iā€™d be pretty chuffed to meet a little Prudence now.

Boy names I LOVE Hamish, Gregor, Angus and Fergus.

Not sure if these are not conventionally attractive...but I've heard rude things about them (all were in the running for my ds and we did actually use one of them)!

Dear Prudence is my fave Beatles' song!

I always loved Briony for a girl. Problem is my FIL is called Brian and although he's nice enough I wouldn't name my child after him!

Also love Gene for a boy which isn't everyone's idea of a pretty name.
