Autumn, Summer, Winter: I've never had a particularly deep love for season names.
Mirabelle: Is a plum. I'm not fond of it as a given name.
Addison: Screams 80's-90's to me, but maybe that's just me.
Copeland: Is this an actual name?
Rosaline: Too frilly and pink, I much prefer Rosalind.
Arizona, Alaska, Jordan, Atlanta: Place names really isn't my thing.
Arabella: Wonderful name, I think it's so beautiful and very elegant.
Cecilia: Not my style, but I prefer this version over Cecelia.
Eve: Makes me think of Eve Harrington from All About Eve - not a great namesake.
Juliet: Again, too girly-girly for me.
Calla: Maybe it's a cultural thing, but that name (along with Willa) sounds so odd to me. Don't like it.
Alyssa: Have never cared for this name.
Venessa (Vanessa): Same as above.
Belle: Another very girly-princessy kind of name. Not my cup of tea.
Anya: Like the Russian pronunciation, dislike pretty much every other pronunciation.
Gwen: Not a fan.
Nova: I kinda like it, though mainly as a middle.
Catalina: Again, not quite my style.
Sophie: Lovely name. Can't go wrong with it, it's a classic.
Savannah: I've actually been intrigued by it for a while. I think it's quite charming.
Clementine: Another very girly name, though it's sweet, I'd never use it myself.
Alva: Beautiful name, it's on my list of favourite girls name, and it's a great alternative to Alma and Alba.
Aviana: I love the name but not with the nickname Avis (car rental service immediately springs to mind).
Thea: Have never really understood the appeal.
Lennox: Annie? No.
Cosette, Eponine: Too tied with Les Misérables.
Aria: Don't like it.
Sutton: Another name that sounds all kinds of wrong in Danish ears.
Clover: Makes me think of Totally Spies!
Alba: Don't care for it.
Casper: Very popular name here in Denmark and definitely not a bad one.
Reeve: Definitely not my style.
Christopher: I like it, it's a classic.
Finn: I'm guilty of being really fond of Fynn, but Finn is nice too.
Trevor: Gives me strong associations to a certain Mr. Longbottom's pet toad.
Connor: A very popular name, but quite frankly I don't understand why.
Avery: Have always seen that name as a girls name, but that might just be me.
Lucas: Beautiful and classic.
Ransom: See Rebel.
Jackson, Rhys, Hudson: No, those only work as surnames for me.
Isaac: It's sweet, it's very popular, but not bad.
Cain: Too biblical for me.
Hayden: Ever since I've seen American Horror Story, I've kinda liked this name on a girl (which is totally off my general style). I dislike it for a boy though.
Asa: One of my absolute favourite names. How can one not love this name.
Alfie: Generally dislike nicknames turned given names, I prefer Alfred with the nickname Alfie.
Harold: Nah, too old-fashioned (says the girl who's into Archibald and Maude).
River: Have never cared for name like this.
Cricket: As a pet name, perhaps, but never as a given name.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

Venessa – Do you mean Vanessa? If so then I like.
Aria – Love, but getting very popular & may date badly
Sophie – Classic, pretty & timeless
Anya, Gwen & Eve – Simple and elegant
Rosaline – Prefer Rosalind, but this is nice too
Thea, Alyssa & Alba – Feminine whilst still being strong.
Casper, Isaac & Lucas – I can imagine these three playing blues in a smoky underground bar. Very cool!
Christopher – Classic, solid name. Likeable but not very exciting
Hayden – I know –ayden names take a beating, but I like this one
Rhys, Connor & Finn – I like Irish & Welsh names anyway so I’ve always had a soft spot for these names
Avery - Soft but strong
Autumn, Summer, Winter, Savannah, Cecilia, Catalina, Juliet, Addison, Alva
Clementine, Arabella – To fussy
Mirabelle & Belle – Dislike ‘belle’ names in general
Jordan & Copeland & Lennox & Sutton, Reeve, Hudson Jackson – Not a fan of surname names
Arizona & Alaska & Atlanta – I don’t really like state/city names
Nova – This is my dog’s name, so I actually do like it, just not for a person!
Calla – I want to like it but it just feels incomplete somehow. Same with Asa
Aviana (Avis) – A car rental company
Clover – A bit bovine
Trevor & Harold – I love old man names, but don’t think that these two should be resurrected
Rebel, Ransom, River, Cricket – These are words to me, not names.
Cain – I actually don’t mind Biblical names with less than pleasant backstories (I really like the name Jezebel for example). However, killing your own brother and committing mankind’s first murder is a bit of a PR disaster for this name.
Alfie – Too cutesy, especially for a boy.My Top 10 Girls Names: Astrid, Elara, Evelyn, Hannah, Hester, Lorna, Megan, Ophelia, Sylvia, Tabitha
