Default favorite uncommon baby names

Not too long ago there was a thread about names for babies I can't find it but there were some really unusual ideas. my daughter and I were talking about baby names. I wanted to remember some of your ideas but couldn't so what are some of your favorites which are unusual?

Names on my name list (even though I never plan to have kids?). Don't know how uncommon or unusual they are, though:

Annette
Gabriel
Emery
Anthony
Danae
Leander/Lysander
Anabella
Annalisa
Lysanne

My husband likes incorporating my name (Liz). His middle name is Anthony. And all the Ann names are because....Ann and Elizabeth alternate generations in my family. Since I'm Elizabeth, next generation (mine or my brothers daughter) would be some form of Ann.

I could really use girl name ideas so this might be helpful!! I don't like super common names, and I tend to be drawn to names that sound feminine and especially ones that end in 'a'.

My nieces names are Eden and Vienna. I love both names - and I don't think they are too common.

This is our short list of future baby names. I love uncommon names, but ones that aren't too out-there!

Boys:

Ryland
Parker
Liam

Girls:
Marlie
Nora
Summer

I also love the name Jasper for a boy, and Abby for a girl... but those are on reserve as future chihuahua names

Ian's not a big fan of either of those, so I'm like "okay, they'll be chihuahua names then!"

I also love the name Maya, but it's a name we'll never use for a kid either!

I'm no help--I like common names. I see the frustration that the kids with unusual names go through in my classes, and I am so grateful to have an easy to spell, "normal" name as an adult. I think there is a really solid group of names somewhere between "There are 5 other girls with the same name in her kindergarten class" and "I have no idea what the heck you just said, can you please spell your name for me?"

Top names should we have an accident...
Girls: Madeline or Clara
Boy: Ryan

We paired longer names with shorter names and gave Morgan boy names to go by as his middle names. Gives it a nice balance imo.

I grew up with a very common name, and my husband grew up with an uncommon name. People still always pronounce/spell his name wrong, but he says he's happy that he doesn't have a common name.

I wish I had an uncommon name. Not something like Apple or Pilot Inspector, but something just a little different.
