Eek on alize, that's a brand of liquor.
And chevelle is a model of Chevy.

Those are indeed some unique names, only a few strike my interest though.

This was my first thought too!

There are certainly some on there that I have never seen before!

Gerhard - I actually really like this but spelled Gerard. Geddy's not my style though as a nickname, I much prefer Gerry.

Haha! Thought the same thing!


Like/Love
Abel x 2 I actually like this. I probably wouldn't use it, but it's cute.
Almin Sounds kind of neat. A semi-popular LDS name is Alma, and this is a nice alternative that doesn't remind me of my great aunt Alma.
Chase
Darien - prefer it spelled Darian, though.
Diego x 2 - This is my dog's name actually. He was named after Zorro. I think it's a fine Spanish name.
Drake
Leonardo
Maximus
Raiden
Ronan - I prefer this spelled Ronin
Ulysses

Ones I have comments about
Covenant - Biblical names are in right now, but this is going a bit too far.
Donte x 2 - Makes me think of Dante's Inferno, and therefore Hell.
Jaidus - Fresh alternative to Jayden, but still not awesome. Too made up.
Jia - Not for a boy!


Like/Love
Adonica
Aloria
Astrid
Eden
Estrella - Love this name to death. Beautiful Spanish name,
Flower - Cute
Harmony
Jubilee
Kiara
Maritza
Raven
Samreen
Sarai x 2

one I have comments about
Atheana - *sigh* Why must people always spell names wrong?!
Chevelle - it's a car and a band. Guess they're fans?
Ezabelle - Even worse than Jezebel.
Karrienna - WTH is up with spelling it like that?
Nada - This means "none" or "nothing." I guess they didn't speak Spanish.
Nrjs - National Restorative Justice Symposium?
Revelation - I sense teasing in her future. A lot of it. Mostly by perverted teenage boys. This may be unavoidable with most names though.
Ryannon - *sigh*
Sheiri - Shady? Who thought this was a good idea?

I'm thinking that they meant the name to be pronounced Ah-thee-an-na, but I may be wrong. If they intended that it be pronounced the same as Athena, then I agree with you... *sigh*. Athena is my daughter's name, and I love it, of course, spelled correctly.

I would like to think the meant it to be Ah-thee-an-a, but I can't bring myself to believe it. More and more classic names are being spelled wrong these days. Athena itself is a fine name, though it's not on my personal list. But I really dislike misspellings, especially of really old names that have been around for centuries.

I like Jubilee cause it reminds me of X-Men, and I'm a dork like that.
