Oh, there are a lot. Obviously everyone dislikes Nevaeh and stuff like that, so I'm not even going to name them.
Of the ones that are ranking pretty high, or getting popular, I dislike:
Philippa, Fiona, Adelaide, Adeline, Matilda, Abigail, Amelia, Olivia, Delilah, Dahlia, Penelope, Persephone. I could probably name many others if I sat here long enough.Michelle

Overly frilly or fussy names: Arabella, Araminta, Seraphina, Ottilie, Priscilla, Annabelle. Although I do love Ophelia, which could definitely be classed as frilly!
I’m not a huge fan of ‘cutesy’ names that end in an ‘ee’ sound, especially for boys; Alfie, Archie, Charlie, Freddie, Timothy (not really a cutesy name, but I still can’t stand it), Hayley, Lily, Daisy, Poppy, Maisie.
I really like a lot of ‘old lady’ names, but there are a few that I think should never be resurrected, such as Agatha, Bertha, Mildred, Florence, Gertrude, Agnes, Doris, Ethel, Dorcas.
And finally the number one name whose enduring popularity I don’t understand: Jack. I just find it so bland. You might as well call your son ‘Boy’.Girls: Alice, Anna, Astrid, Beatrice, Clara, Elodie, Emily, Evelyn, Hannah, Hermione, Lorna, Phoebe, Sophie, Sylvia
Boys: Andrew, Arthur, Elliot, Griffin, Hamish, Henry, Leopold, Martin, Peter, Robin, Rupert, Thomas, Tobias, William
Guilty Pleasures: Athena, Damaris, Digory, Emrys, Ganymede, Hester, Jessamine, Phineas, Myrtle, Nymeria, Nyx
