Hannah and Savannah- they clash with our last name too much.
Rylan, Tristan, Aiden, Camden, Hayden, Kieran, and Peyton for boys. My husband would never let me use them because he finds them too "feminine". ***!

That's my son's name

Anyhoo, The only name I know that has grown on me in the last few months is London, I would never use it cause I'm honestly not fond of place names, especially places I've never been too LoL but I think it's pretty

I watched an episode of Bringing Home Baby and the baby girl's name was Cruze, I fell in love with the name... but I'd never use it on my own child.

I would prefer Jocasta to Jacosa, even with the association. I would prefer Lucasta to Jocasta, though. I share some of them with you, only I would use Alaric and planned to use Atticus if Audrey was a boy.

I like:
Bellatrix- I would use except for the Harry Potter association. I really can't stand her character. Sirius was my favorite, I can't help it.
Lavender
Lucretia (My Reflection ) I couldn't do that to a child, though.

Alaric
Amadeus
Atticus


Some of my other guilty pleasures:
Valentina
Isabel/Isobel
Maeve
Esmee
Blythe
Charlotte
Linnea
Dahlia
Ianthe
Minerva
Valentine
Leander
Julian
David- Love, but might pass up because it's DH's dad's name.
Cassius

I heart Sirius Black! I don't even care about Harry, Hermione (another GP) or Ron. It's all about the Marauders.
I too love Lucasta, but I have some unfortunate personal associations that make it off-limits for me...

I forgot the true horrors of my list:
Ástriđr
Sígriđr
Hannerose
Hannemette
Hecuba
Hephzibah
Dido
Blancheflor
Belissénde
Floor
Copperlily
Zephyrlily
Rosemallow
Sweetbrier
Poppymallow

"Hippy" names: River (boy), Ocean, Forest, Sage, etc.

Greek mythological names (tend to give them to my animals instead).

Off-beat Hebrew names (Shoshana, Tirzah, Tovah, Ezra, Ezekiel, etc).

Russian/Slovic/Hungarian/East European names -mostly female- (Annika, Oksana, Mariska, Irina, Lenka, etc)

Nothing wrong with Greek, Hebrew, East European names... they just aren't what I'd use for my kids (which are all Celtic names, Irish, Scottish, and Welsh).
