Sindri - Moving on to more Icelandic names. I was doing a bit of research on Bjork, and discovered her kids have really great names; her son Sindri Eldon Þórsson and daughter Ísadóra Bjarkardóttir Barney. Sindri means "sparkling" in Old Norse, and in mythology was the name of a dwarf who made magical objects for the Gods with his brother, and the name of the hall were the good would go after Ragnarök.
Florestine - This is one I've never seen before. Princess Florestine of Monaco was named for her father, King Florestan I. She later had two daughters, Amalie and Wiltrud.
Kubec - I was watching "The Public Enemy", the movie that propelled James Cagney into fame, and saw one of the screenwriters was named Kubec Glasmon. He was originally from Poland, and they pronounced it "KYOO-beck".
Pétronille - On Jolis Prénoms there was a lovely sibset of girls; Pétronille Marie, Guillemette Marie, and Valentine Marie. It is a tradition for the girls to all have the middle name Marie.
Léontin - Also on Jolis Prénoms, there is an adorable sibset of Léontin and Mélusine.
