    Cassandra - everyone seems to think of this as dated, but I've never known anyone with the name so I don't have that association.
    Demelza - apparently this is a Disney witch/ugly step-sister type name. I just think of beautiful Cornwall and the Poldark books.
    Sylvia - I understand the dated feel people get from this (I used to, as well) but she is my favourite Pankhurst by a million miles.
    Poppy - love this as a middle name, but have seen a lot of comments that it's too cutesy and insubstantial.
    Holiday - I doubt I'd ever use this, but I love the sound and the connotations. Seen as overly frivolous, which I can understand.
    Thyme - as a mn. The sound is awesome and the herb is historically symbolic of courage, but a little too odd for most.
    Charity - unfortunately often perceived as tacky. I adore the sound and the meaning is inspirational.

    Asa - absolutely adore this, but so many people say it's too soft/sounds like a girl's name. Nn Ace gives it a masculine boost, though.
    Douglas - again, dated/dad name to most people.
    Bradley - okay, so I would never use this, but this name has so many amazing connotations for me. It just makes me happy.

    My guilty pleasure name is Aubryn, which I know (without even asking) that most berries would find very terrible and trendy, but I can't help it!

    I also adore Sophia and Sadie (they've been favorites for years) so I hope that by the time I get around to having kids the popularity has died down.

    I can't think of any more specifically, but I tend to like more 'normal' names so I guess I'm the minority over here.

    Olga (I kind of understand, it's very ... hard. However, I think it's so sweet and I'd love for people to like it as much as I do).
    Maude (I do not understand this one. It may be because it's pronounced completely different in Danish. We pronounce the au like the o in "over" rather than like the a in "all". I think it's so beautiful and romantic looking).

    Amaury (again, I think the problem is the pronunciation, but after having heard the real French pronunciation, you can't not love this name).
    Archibald (too old-fashioned? Maybe, but I think it's better than Archer, Archibald is charming).
    Akiva (not sure why people dislike this one either).

    And for the moment: Atticus Aksel Inigo • Aviaaja Cleopatra Hero "Avi" • Fabiola Agnes Lúthien
