The only names on here that I've almost ALWAYS gotten negative responses to are:
Alaska - So a pageant girl is named this, so? I'm sure there's pageant girls names Emily, Sophia and Isabella too
Brooke - It's dated, apparently
Fallon - Masculine, ugly and white-rrash have been some of my favorites
Heather - Also dated
Julie - "Why on Earth would you give your child a nickname when the beautiful Julia exists"? Erm, cause I like it?
Sailor/Saylor - Don't even get me started...
Mark - I had someone ask me why I was even on this site if I was considering using such a boring and unimaginative name. Erm, ok.

I had a great childhood friend called 'Sky' - nothing but positive feelings for the name but if you're going to go hippy my policy is 'go hard or go home', omit the 'e'
Ariadne - ugly/impossible to pronounce, no one can spell it, WTH?
Hermione - for obvious Harry Potter associations (I love Harry Potter but it's a pity such a lovely name was sacrificed at the altar of popular culture, that said, before Harry Potter no one would have been able to pronounce or spell it...)
Thomasina - "You just put 'ina' on the end of a boy's name, give her a proper girl name" - few feminine versions of masculine names have escaped the purge of the last century, though there's still Georgina and Roberta which I feel will come back in force, and let's not forget Nigella...
Lorelei - Gilmore Girls or some such, never watched it... Also, a more generalised fear of Germans? (at least from my partner)
Ender - "Like Ender's Game?" - Yes, so what?
Turing - "Like that gay guy who did the stuff with computers?" - Like...that genius who helped save his country and was still shat on from a great height subsequently just because he was gay...why yes (I like tribute names)
Wilde - "Like that gay guy...didn't he write plays?" - Like that awesome...etc, you get the point (I like tribute names)
Lysander - "Isn't that from Shakespeare or some crap?" - Yes, yes it is... *sigh*
