    Default Sort of spinoff - Different/weird names you like but dont have the balls to use?

    It's not a weird name but I don't think it'd go with our surname: Giovanni.

    I love my woggy names and I'm really proud of my Italian heritage but unfortunately dh is Australian/German and our surname is pretty Anglo.

    I also like Angelina (it was going to be my name, after my Nonno Angelino) apparently I was so chubby at first my mum thought it'd be mean to call me little angel if I was to be a chubber. Anyway, dh doesn't like it and Angelina Jolie has put me off a bit. As a member of Team Aniston I feel it's disrespectful lol

    I replied to this post awhile ago saying that if we had a girl, I loved the name Athena but was still unsure about it given how different it is.

    Here is Athena Elizabeth at 4 weeks old. The first week it took some getting used to, but now I couldn't think of any other name for my little princess! She's 4 months old now :-)

    Follow your heart people! Random people on the street may think it's a bit odd, but when people get to know your little guy/girl - they'll think they're just as gorgeous, no matter the name

    I like it but keep thinking it reminds me of something I don't like! Wouldn't prob use it as most likely no-one (not even me) can pronounce it!!!
    It wouldn't be pronounced "Charlie" would it? It's definitely unique!

    Not sure, Arusaamatus.

    Could be a Spanish version of Charlie. The chinese sound for the x is sh (I think), not sure how the spanish pronounce it (it was a spanish film). The only way I can think to pronounce it is to leave the t off the front and say it 'xarli'.

    I love 'Athena' and she is gorgeous. Good on you for going against convention. It is a beautiful name for a beautiful girl. Our little B**** Taliesin is growing so fast I can't believe it.

    Elara (not so unheard of, this one)

    And lore-related characters:

    Azshara
    Elune
    Avianna

    Lyria and Elisara are my faves from these. I pronounce "Lyria" like "LI - REE - AH", not "LYE - REE - AH", just in case you were wondering. DH is against using names that our child would have to constantly spell out to people, but maybe I could convince him that these would make great middle names, lol.
    What about Thrall? Sylvanas? Arthas?

    Beautifully said, thank you Arusaamatus. Your little girl is absolutely GORGEOUS, and the name Athena suits her perfectly.

    Not sure if has been suggested already, but you could use the name Randall.

    I love Emmanuel and Oran for boys, but would never use them. We had a little DD anyway!
