Names you love but everyone else hates?
My naming style is very diverse as you can see. I like all types. These are just some of my name crushes that no one really seems to like. I understand fully why you do not like them. I don't care about popularity. If I love it, so what? Use it. Lastly, if you have these same reactions it's all good. Some of mine include:
Avril (French word for April. The Avril Lavigne association does not bother me at all (would you hate me if I considered it a plus?) but not many people like it. Trust me, I understand if you don't.)
Skye (I do not get good reactions out of this... I have no idea why.)
Cher (I am trying to get over the obvious celebrity association but in 20 years time will it matter? I'm not saying I love it, it's just idk.)
Emma (Every time I bring this up people always tell me it's "Way too popular.")
Pandora (The bad myth association and the brand name are the main reasons people complain. I understand.)
Adeline (I always get "I prefer Madeline.")
Draco (Too trendy is what i usually get.)
Candor (Ok, I understand that it's a word name...)
Jameson (They prefer James)
Emmett (too trendy)
Jasper (also too trendy)
My boy list is considerably smaller, as I tend to like more classic names.
These are probably all "phases" so judge away.
I have no idea why I am making such a big deal out of this but okay.
Any names you love but everyone else hates? *le sigh*Alexis

First of all, from your names, I really like Skye (I probably wouldn't use it as a first cuz I like lengthy first names typically but I could SOOO use it for a middle!), Adeline (while I do like Madeline, I don't think it's better than Adeline haha. They're about equal IMO), and Jameson
Susannah: Idk if the berries here like this name or not, but most of my family wrinkles their nose, especially when I pair it with my middle name of choice, Lark (c'mon guys, Susannah Lark is awesome!)
Sophia: they say it's too popular; i say "who cares?! it's beautiful!!!
Rinna/Rin: all i get when i say this name is "HUH???" I do love the name Katharine, so I've resigned myself to Katharine nn Rin.
Eowyn: automatic response: "You're such an LOTR nerd!!"
Eilonwy: is that even a name? (they say). why, yes it is and a very good one too (i say)
Larkin: cue the nose wrinkles of confusion
Primrose: the Hunger Game reference is just too much for most
Scout: It's Jean Louise Finch's nickname! What could be better?!?!
My taste in boys names runs pretty "normal/traditional" too, so like you, i don't have as many
Percy: my mom says I've been reading too much Rick Riordan
Aragorn: yeah, it's the LOTR thing again
Llewellyn: Say what???
Caol: yeah, it's pronounced like the vegetable (i think). But it's Irish!!

I love Cher...for the association, actually!
For me, it's "dated" names that people call "mom names", but are absolutely grandma names at this point...
I think in awhile they will be the vintage-classics everyone is loving, but they just need a bit longer
Also- overly cutesy cuteness like...
