Glad to see this thread! In addition to offensive, inappropriate, or negative descriptions, there are also some that contain inaccuracies.
Osbert: "soft" and "wimpy"
Dorian: "crossed the lake into the girls' camp several years ago" - I think it's worth noting that popular stats pretty thoroughly refute this claim; Dorian has never been ranked for girls, while it's been bouncing around the 400-500-600 range since the early '70s for boys. In 2011 there were 488 male to 21 female Dorians, and the gap wasn't any smaller "several years ago," either.
I'm sure I'll come across more soon enough, but that's all I really have off the top of my head.
Keith and Cyril (particularly Cyril: "snooty sounding for a boy, it's both soft and virile for a girl") have some, er, interesting entries as well. And let's not forget Ira!on my mind, for the moment

Mildred "Red" ☆ Obedience "Bede" ☆ Relief "Leafy" ☆ Dorothea "Doro" ☆ Penelope "Pen" ☆ Ruth "Rue" ☆ Eudoxia "Exie"

I know equal numbers of male and female Taylors, and all the Sidneys I know are old men. Completely agree that India's description should include the note that it is controversial!Simon, Eloise/Louise, Faye, Judah, Thea, Felix, Iris, Cordelia, Roscoe, Lydia, Jasper, Phaedra, Adrian, Lucinda, Jane, Conrad, Wallace, Finnegan, Sylvie, Charlie, Dashiell, Juniper, Atlas, Matilda, Julian, Alice, Marlowe, Octavia, Jack, Marigold, Archer, Gabriel, Persephone, Raphael, Dov

Anyhoo, that might just be where you live as well as the age group. At my school, there are female Taylors everywhere (including me haha). Last year, on the swim team alone, there was about 6 female Taylors. As far as I know, there's only a few male Taylors here and there. It's interesting how there is such a difference in different locations, despite the name rankings.~ Catholic. College. Communicative Disorders. ~~(updated 11/3/15)
