We like old fashioned spellings and unusual buy not bizzarre names (Jayne instead of Jane; Leigh instead of Lee)
(Cassandra, Cjersti, Quentin, Janis, Kyla).

I lik the name Enli. However it is too easily confused with Emily and it is a native American name which means "That dog over there" So I would not realistically use it, but it is a neat name and funny.

Cora may have gotten a little boost from the singer character in the movie Music & Lyrics. I like the name.

I like the name Cornelius, although it does bring to mind Yukon Cornelius from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

I grew up with a guy named Neil who was really a Cornelius, and his sister Cory was Cornelia. Very common names among the Dutch at one time.

Addison is my son's middle name. I knew a girl who had a son named Addison, and I liked it bc it was different and unheard of at the time.

I cringe when I see Addison for a girl. I guess its the trendy thing to do, but to me it screams masculinity.

Hmm. I am actually very surprised that this is a boy's name. It sounds so feminine to me. When I hear this name I always picture a real girly girl. I have never known an Addison, but whenever I hear the name I picture pink and frilly dresses.
