    Elke is beautiful, and I've never heard of Elke Sommers at all so the sex kitten-thing is a little on the extreme side.

    OMG! I had never read the description of Elke before and I have no idea what they thinking. First of all I don't have much of image Elke one way or the other. "Seemingly a contradictory statement" Since I have no preconceptions about the name, I have literally no idea what is contradictory. The whole thing is bizarre.

    I've never been impressed by the one-sentence description of Darcy: "The ultimate Jane Austen hero name, but a bit feminine for an American boy." Perhaps there's just not much to say, but it does rub me the wrong way and that's what this thread is for, right? I hate seeing it described as feminine, but I guess I can kind of see where that's coming from.

    Oh gosh, yes. That one irked the heavens out of me.

    How can Howard or James be suggested for a girl, but Madison shouldn't be inflicted on a boy? I'm confused to that reasoning.
