I think it's a bit odd seeing Luca as a female name in a top 10 list, but that'll require some investigation later. I adore Lili here. Some lovely names further on the top 100 include girls names Dorina, Fanni, Mira, Eszter, Zselyke, Amira, Panna, Blanka, Fruzsina, Kinga, Emese, Timea, Zita, Kata, Kitti, Kira, Katalin, Kincső, and Dalma. You can see there's no shortage of K names here. For boys, the following are very striking and also very foreign to most Americans: Bálint, Zoltán, Gábor, István, Zsolt, Zétény, Csaba, Szabolcs, Ferenc, Mihaly, Tibor, Soma, Gellért, Florian, and Vencel.

  1. I've always liked Axelle as a name, as well as Lore (it always reminds me of folklore, which is a pleasant association for me), and I thought Elif was an interesting name- I had to look it up.

    I've also liked Ferenc but I realize that it'll have some pronunciation issues in the U.S.

    Luca is actually a Hungarian and Croatian feminine form of Lucy (though it's pronounced loo-tsah). It is kind of confusing, though, when you're so used to is as a male name.
