What are some of the names you like/love that just don't "feel" like you?

Not neccessarily names that aren't your style, but names that you like/love, but just can't see naming a child of yours?

And opposite that, what are the names that are "totally you"? I know we all have tons of names we like/love but more than likely wont be able to use all of them.
What are the ones that you can definitely picture on your child?

I love, but I can't picture myself with...

Aurelia
Caleb
Eliza
Felix
Gideon
Lydia
Matilda
Melkior
Nobel
Quin
Rex
Theo
Violet

I can totally picture myself with...

Atticus
August
Briseis
Canaan
Dixon
Ezra
Fox
Francesca
Jude
Liesel
Nicolai
Olive
Penelope

Hmm... having a really hard time choosing these, lol. The only thing that popped into my head (for a boy) is Julian and Julius. They are "not me" (I am not a fan of almost all Juli- names), but I really like those two a lot. Let's see what else I can think of....

Camilla/Camille
Abigail
Alessandra
Anabel
Angelica
Celeste
Cecilia
Chryseis
Klytemnestra
Coralie
Dagmar
Zoe
Tabitha
Tara
Teija (what my mom wanted to name me)
Theodora
Theda (my great-grandmother's name)
Tzipporah

Ok, I can't think of anything else at the moment, lol. Those are all girl names. This is taking me too long, so I don't think I have the time to do the list for the boys, LMAO.

Plus, I'm getting quite distracted by Cash Cab, haha.

Like but not me (I guess I consider them my gp names):
Zeus
Fox
Hawk
Bronte

Names that are totally me:
Blaise
Hayden (but sadly won't use due to popularity)
Sutton
Lex
Avenley
Avery (won't use due to popularity)
Callie (won't use due to popularity)

Unfortunately...some of the names that are "totally me" I still won't use

I don't think there are names I love that "aren't me." I would have said popular names (Alyssa, Allison, Kaylee), but since both my kids names are popular, picking another popular name wouldn't bother me.

There are names that are totally me that I wouldn't use because it would be cruel - Eurydice, for instance. No one's gonna pronounce that right. My favorite girl name, Ariadne, is at least phonetic, and stands a change of being pronounced right part of the time.

Girl names that are totally me are hippy names and Greek mythology names (My children will probably never have these names, but only DH is stopping me from using them.
Ariadne
Persephone
Ione
Sunshine
Clover
Meadow


My boy names don't have a theme at all. I go from Remus to Owen to Leonidas to Alec to Justin to Linnaeus. They're all totally me, and I could see myself using all of them if DH would agree.
