Anaerys, pronounced Auh-nair-iss, is an invented girl’s name without any known meaning. We like to think of this genuinely unique name as the perfect alternative for the popular Game of Thrones name Daenerys. The future mother of Dragons, anyone?

A Czech cognate of Katherine derived from Greek Hekaterine meaning “pure.” We love this name because it’s both familiar and exotic yet very uncommon, yet very classic. It sounds sweet and elegant, delicate, and yet very strong.

Odessa is a Greek name meaning: “wrathful.” This name’s probably the poshest out of all the names in this list. It’s so exotic and elegant, making it an excellent moniker for your little princess. We also love the nickname Dessa.

This name sounds like it could have belonged to a Russian princess, but it’s actually a coinage of an Old English flower name. Zinovia is a creative, poetic, and almost even ethereal name that sounds strong and independent yet still kind.
