    Most of my guilty pleasure names are random place or airport names, or random words, e.g:
    Amalfi, Bellagio, Heathrow, Ampersand, Innisfree for boys
    Anthology, Paprika, Liguria, Scotia, Malta for girls
    and many more in the same vein...

    The few actual names I couldn't use due to unpleasant associations:
    Bruce (Robert the Bruce- I love England and want to move there someday, so that probably wouldn't work)
    Napoleon
    Willoughby (the S&S character was a huge cad)

    I love the idea of twins named Prospero Sebastian Valentino, but even I think that's a bit OTT and I almost never think that. I could imagine it on a handsome, charming and debonair Italian movie star or something like that, but not on a regular person... I love it even more as a twin for Fitzwilliam Luciano Petrarch, which might be usable, haven't decided but together it's waaay too much even for me.
    ~Love names, literature, royals and horses~ <3

    Favourite names:
    Girls: Azalea, Cordelia, Elizabeth, Rosalind, Scarlett, Portia, Felicity, Juliet
    Boys: Fitzwilliam, Sebastian, Percival, Prospero, Orlando, Darcy

    Sherlock. I just love the name Sherlock. I've been a fan of the books for years, ever since I started reading them in middle school. Maybe as a middle name? I've also thought of using the name Lock (or Loch) instead.

    I can't remember who it was, but another user posted the French word Ameliore (ah-may-lee-ore), which I believe she said was a derivative of the verb "to improve". That's been firmly on my GP list since the moment I read it...so pretty!

    Ever & Wren are two of my favorite names for a girl, but do not work with my SN.

    Others that I love but wouldn't use: Meadow, Berlin, Breslin, Connelly, Leisel, Sawyer, Spencer, Elliott

    For boys: Beckham, Gunnar, Wilder (I would use Gunnar and Wilder as a MN....if I wasn't so adamant about using names that honor someone, anyways)

    These are names that I can't imagine working on a child in Australia (i.e., others would find them too strange or be tempted to tease the child for) or that others have openly told me are "terrible names - you can't do that to a child!", etc.! Some of them are names I personally feel are too clunky, too heavy or too much for a child to bear. A couple of the names are too popular for me to use. Some of the girls' names are too masculine for me to actually use.
