Okay, so there's a few names that I feel like I am one of the only people who like it. And it's not necessarily that other people always DISlike it, but it's that they are not excited about it or anything. Maybe its a name that used to be in style or something new altogether. Know what I mean?

These are my names for this list: (I realize my boys' list is much longer than my girls' :) )

Franklin
Zephaniah
Azariah
Stellan
Alistair
Bear and Beaver as nicknames for Theodore
Wade
Chapel
Tolliver
Britain
Lane
London
Ivan
Peter
Kenan (not Keenan; Kenan.)
Canaan
Lane
Massimo (wouldn't actually use this unless I married an Italian or something haha)
Leonardo (not just Leo)
Griffith
Fergus
Angus
Shiloh (more of a guilty pleasure, but still)
Oleander
Laken
Bishop
Morgan (I feel like it's used mostly for girls now...)
Lancaster ("Lane")

Senna
Leighton (some people actually like this a lot, but I thought it still qualified for this list...)
Holland
Abbott (Abbey/Abby?)
Jocelyn
Dylan
Jillian
Anniston (Ann, Anna, Annie?)
Meredith
Maine
Valerie
Madrid (Maddie?)
Olivette / Olivet
Baylor (could be Bay)
Jaqueline (could be Jackie)
Helena (another borderline I feel like qualified...)

What are yours? I'm really curious to hear this.

It basically means names you like but wouldn't actually use. Or at least that is what I take it as haha. Like, for example, somebody thinks Ethiopia would be a nice name for a little girl, but would never ACTUALLY name their daughter Ethiopia.

I think Tallulah is adorable :)

I like Franklin, Lane, & Peter. And for girls I like Senna (LOVE), Meredith & Jillian. I don't really 'dislike' most of them though, only a couple. Most I would say I do like at least a little. Oh and to Alyssa I LOVE Hadley. And to Elizabeth, pretty much every name on your list I like/love, except Monica and Christian, for personal reasons for each.

Anyway, names I like that I feel no one else (very few) really likes are;
Harlie / Harley
Acadia
Delphine
Kennedy

Manon
Ginger
Katya / Katia

Emeric
Benjamin

Oakley
Falcon

I have the same issue with Wylie on my list.

(Her full combo is Wylie Memphis Ann)

But Tim and I love it, so if we use the name people will just have to get used to it!

Oh gosh.. I commented on your list on all the ones that I do like and are even on my list.. quite a lot of them... but I when I hit backspace my page turned rather than my text going away! :'( So oh well... basically I like A LOT of them.

I don't think there are many that EVERYONE dislikes. I have a few that not as many like, but rarely do I like a name and absolutely no one will get on board with it <3

Clementine
Mabel
Harriet
June / Jane
Charlise
Gwendolyn
Guinevere
Maeve
Saoirse
Roisin
Juniper
Katya
Juliet

Hale
Atlas
Wilder
Wilson
Franklin
Darwin

A lot of these names get a fair amount of love online, or at least its where I get any love. Like in real life, people frown at all of these. But on BNG or Nameberry or something? Clementine's a gem to quite a few, underused classic. Though even then Clem still gets mixed reviews ;) Harriet especially cause its "hairy". A few are even loved on the boards (Juliets not gotten any horrid feedback here, but in real life people are like what?!)

So yeah. Thats off the top of my head.. I can't think of any others haha. I've been pretty mainstream lately in trying to account for Mikes taste in names, so a lot of my names are in the top 100 SSA charts :(

I LOVE Mabel, Jane, and Juliet!! I also like Clementine, Gwendolyn, Guinevere, Saoirse.
And for boys, of course I LOVE Franklin and I really like Hale, Wilder, Wilson, and Darwin. Wilson holds a really special place in my heart as it is the name of a little orphan boy that I spent a lot of time with when I lived in Africa. He's like my little brother. He's 8 now. :)
