I see the term "unique" being thrown around here a lot for top 10 names (rather an oxymoron). Here are some now-uncommon, lovely names with a history (name, nicknames, origin, meaning):


Girls
Miriam (Mimi). Hebrew form of Mary.
Elizabeth (Eliza, Liza, Lisa, Liz, Beth, Betty, Betsy :wub: ). Derived from Greek, from Hebrew. "My god is abundance" or "my god is oath" *shrug*
Annika (Ani. My boyfriend's sister is Annika, aka Nicci.) . Dutch, German, Swedish, etc form of Anna. Favor or grace.
Eleanor (Elle, Ella, Nora - I love them all!). French.
Adelaide (Addie). Noble sort.
Adeline (Addie).
Alice. Noble.
Octavia. Latin. Eighth.
Carmen. Really, worldly.
Diana. Everywhere. Goddess, heaven.

Boys
David. Beloved.
August/Augustine/Augustus (Gus?). Latin. Great.
Oscar. English, Irish, Spanish. Deer lover ( :wacko: )
Celio. Spanish. Heaven.
Dominic. Latin. Of the Lord.
Edmund. English, German. Protector.

Miriam (Mimi) - I don't care for Miriam but I think the NN Mimi is cute.
Elizabeth (Eliza, Liza, Lisa, Liz, Beth, Betty, Betsy) - I like it as a middle name but I think its very common.
Carmen - I like it.



I :wub: Dominic so much.

I only like these 2 girl names...
Miriam (Mimi)-- I wouldn't ever use it, but I think Mimi is a cute nickname
Adeline

I don't like any of the boy names.

Elizabeth
Adelaide
Alice
Octavia
David
Oscar


I'm using David, mostly because it means 'Beloved'. Which is derived from two of my favorite songs and is my tattoo. :wub:

I like Nora and Diana a lot. In fact, Carter would have been Nora if he was a girl.

I also like David and Dominic.

Names like these are not used anymore. Every single little girl nowadays is some cutsie-pie spelling of Michaela, Madison, Emily, or Addison.
