Baby Girl Names

Okay, last chance to offer suggestions for our baby girl. I am getting antsy to name her, and though there are several that I am quite fond of, none are "the one". I am sure in the next couple months, at least one will grow on me enough to be "the one", but I am always open to suggestions. As I don't use my kids names on this site, it might be hard to read what our preferences are, but here is a good idea of things we like:

Easy to read, sounds like it looks
unusual/different (no Michelle, Mary, or Karen)
unpopular names (no Ava/eva/emma, lily, or madison)

One of the names for my 2 year old, that we did not use, was "Breckin", for example.

I guess that is all the essential criteria. We appear to be gravitating toward names that end in "-ey, or -y" but not intentionally. I guess they just seem girly. My husband likes the names Aurelia and Annika, but those sound too exotic/foreign for our very English last name -- We are not a bit exotic or foreign either. :)

Swistle would definitely help.
I think Annika is a little too common; maybe it's just me but I know of 3 of them.

Wow - I've never even heard the name Annika. Although it does sound like Anakin, as in Anakin Skywalker. Nice one Jake, trying to slip that in there :)
