Im not pregnant or TTC but I was thinking today about names and thought I would ask your opinion.
DS name is Damon.
I have always considered my naming style as modern uncommon however lately I seem to be liking names that I would class as more traditional uncommon.
So I now seem to have 2 separate lists of names. So which set of names do you think fits best with DS's name.
All opinions most welcome.

I much prefer your list of Traditional Uncommon, but must disclose that this is my style anyway and even more importantly my DD's name is Adelaide.
I also think that Damon fits more comfortably into the Traditional Uncommon than the Modern Uncommon.

I would say that Damon is traditional uncommon anyway... so stick with that.

I think more traditional - but I like these best

Thank you for your opinions.
As it seem that traditional uncommon is better with DS name Damon.
What other names do you think fit in the traditional uncommon category.
So to add to the following list:
Also couuld Amaya still be used? Would it fit with the above names?

I don't know the history of Amaya but to me it matches well with Damon.

I like these two the best from the traditional uncommon list:

I don't know how to pronounce Amaya. I like May? And Amy and Amity as well, while I'm playing jumble.
When I think traditional but uncommon, I tend to think of the -line names like Evangeline, Emmeline, Caroline and some of the good-but-old-fashioned names like Esther and Willa, and the more traditional flower/gemstone names like Violet, Opal, Jessamine, Pearl, etc, but staying away from Lily and Ruby as they DO have a vintage feel (or did...) but are booming so much now.
Damon and Esther for example would be really pretty.

I dont think Amaya would be classed as traditional
