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 ). 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 ( )
Celio. Spanish. Heaven.
Dominic. Latin. Of the Lord.
Edmund. English, German. Protector.

I only like Dominic. Some of the nicknames are nice but I don't like the associated given names.

I like/love:

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.

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.

Josephine
Simone

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