항 is a letter that's hardly used in a Korean name so it sounds really unusual and unique, but it isn't weird for a name either. The letter 항 makes the name sound quite masculine. I don't feel the name is outdated probably because of 지 which is being used more than the older generation.

You may check other names at https://korean-name.com/en/. I couldn't find exact references or credible sources the website is based on, but I feel what it provides is correct in general.
