Thats it really! If she was a boy I would have called her Claude/ Casper/ Orlando. All girls names I like are friends daughters so need some I have not heard of!!

Orlando could be a girl's name too (if based on the book).
I love Aphra, as suggested previously.

Not sure if you are interested in Irish names, but what about Caoimhe (pronounced Keeva), Blathnaid (Blaanad), or Rionach (reenock)??

My dd is a merryn. The year she was born less than 30 babies in the uk were called merryn (some of them boys as it can be a boys name)

Its stayed the same each year since with ouround 30 or less children being called it. So certainly not popular.

Meriel - it means sea sprite and I have only ever met one.

Meriel and Merryn are really lovely.

How about Delphine?

Good topic, watching with interest!

Most unusual name I ever knew personally = Qureimah (pronounced Q-Ray-Ma) she got called Q and it really suited her.

Also perhaps:

Mayaan
Nevenka
Nuala
Austen
Elizabelle
Lillith

Not like Maria but like Zaaarrria. Never heard of it before until my friend chose the name for her DD. Now it is totally her and i think it is beautiful smile

I love Severine, Anjou! I'm sure you've heard these before, Hyper, but there's always Ondine ( I know someone called that who goes by Deena), Sanne (pronounced Sanna), Aude, Louison, Francoise (always surprises me this hasn't crossed the pond).
