It would be a lot to live up to as a name, but I definitely see the appeal! I'll be interested to see what other responses you get.

I've really warmed up to Poppy. The more I hear it, the more it makes me think of a field full of vibrant, red poppies. I still sometimes think of opium but less all the time. And I think Cricket...

That made me laugh. It's not an uncommon slang usage in the US either.

Briony and Cosima
Of the boys' names:
Cormac and Roland

I like the name Deborah, but I really dislike Debbie.

Let me start by noting that everything I am about to say is applicable to the US; I don't pretend to be familiar enough with other countries to say whether any of this is also true there. Everything...

There are some cultural crossings that might seem odd. If you and your spouse are both Irish Americans and you select a Chinese name for your child, it might raise a few eyebrows. But virtually any...

I can appreciate the sentiment expressed when people say they want a "spunky" girl's name. But I hear it so often on this forum, I've begun to hate the word spunky! So first, I've copied and am...
Other posters have nailed it; it's the names that are synonymous with a particular generation, usually one that's still alive, that are dubbed "dated." Rest assured, those names may well cycle back...
The only Nora I know is in her late 20s/early 30s, and Nora is actually a nickname for Eleanor in her case.
I like the name Ivan, and I think it should be used more often. And I'm not usually one to say a particular combination of sibling names is problematic. However, I would have some reservations...

I like Ari better, but I don't think it sounds very good with Xavier. Archer might be a compromise that would work. To use Ari as a nn, you could consider Aristotle (yes, like Onassis).
I like Owen James best, followed by William Fitzpatrick.

If the term were being used to describe purely a person's economic status, I would agree with you. But I suspect when "low class" is used in reference to names, others are using it the way I would...
It makes me think Kobe beef.

Out of a genuine sense of curiosity, is it that someone says a name is low class that you hate or is it that a name you like has, for whatever reason, developed that association?

It drives me nuts when someone says "that sounds made up" about a name that isn't "made up." I don't really resent the person saying it, though. I resent all the people who've made up names, thus...
There's some slight teasing potential. But when it comes to the sexual jokes and gossip, teenagers don't need a name that lends itself to punny comments. As name concerns go, this would be lower on...
I really like the name Amelia. I've never been able to come up with a satisfactory nickname for it, though. If its popularity troubles you, I would research how popular it is (or isn't) in your...
I like Grady Allen better than Grady Davis; both are fine but Grady and Allen really sound superb together.
I've never known anyone named Grady personally, so I'm close to a blank slate. When I...

Bennett over Frederick
Phineas George over George Phineas
If your dad is still alive, Forrest middle name
Neither John Emerson nor John Ruben, but I like Ruben Emerson

I really like the name Lolita but find it to be definitively unusable.
I actually know a little boy named Forrest. I've never thought Forrest Gump where he's concerned.
Clifford, Riley, Bailey, and CoCo will probably forever be dog names in my mind, just because they are such popular names for dogs. But for the most part, there's just no longer a clear distinction...
