Athena is pretty though. And not often heard either.

Just want to pipe in and say that I have an unusual name while my brother had a normal name. It never made a difference to me and as far as I know not to him either. I don't remember anyone ever commenting on it either.

I know some people are really into sibsets and while I think it can be nice I also think sometimes it's too extreme/matchy and totally silly to pass on a name you love if the only reason is because it doesn't "go" with the other names. It's most likely that your children will not be living with each other for their entire lives anyway.

There are lots of kids with unusual names at my kids school, so many that it seems the more boring names are the stand out ones! Sophie goes to school with a Precious and a Honeyette, Thomas has a Bracken and Ocean in his class.

It is quite a multicultural school so we have names like Via, Jungwoo, etc. There are no other kids called Thomas or Sophie in the whole school, but there is a Zofia and a couple of Sophia's.

My kids have what ild call traditional names but unusual but i hyphonated most of them to make them unique we struggled to think of a boys name but found one for this baby whos now a girl so can use our girl names but if it was a boy would have been a chase-archer i also like unique ways of spelling names but we chose our girls name based on nickname my dh wants to call her beautifull bella so agreed on isabella-hope as we go to church alot and was told i wouldnt /couldnt carry girls so to be sitting here against odds at 21 weeks with a little girl and all the hope and prayes we did to god our hope was awnsered which is why the hope was added we had justice as a middle name picked out for a boy but glad she is a girl xx

Dinidani that's really lovely, and congratulations on your beautiful pink bundle!
My husband wouldn't budge on spelling lol I tried that too with DD instead of Amy, Aimee but he refused outright, don't know why ... but as it turns out she is more an Amy than Aimee, I know they're the same name but she suits the traditional spelling for some reason, perhaps he intuitively knew

My name is Aimee but itís quite annoying having to constantly correct the spelling of my name so you probably did your daughter a favor by keeping it traditional!

Even when my name is written in my email signature, people from work still spell it all kinds of ways except the right one

I really like names that are rare different but not weird. So far on this thread I've loved them all! We've already pretty much decided on a girl name as Berkley it's different don't know of a single person named that besides the college but it's not weird lol my kids names are not rare but we do not know any children with the same name except Conner but they spell it connor not like we did with the er the one that is hard is Kendrick we didn't know there was a rapper named Kendrick ( it is an old Celtic name) so needless to say we had to explain to anyone 25 under no he was not named after the rapper omg! But I had a friend who's name is cinnamon and her younger twin siblings names are Nicole and Dustin it did bother her because people always asked if her parents were stoner hippies haha but my kids love that no one has their name!
