First off, I love your names, especially Avril.Adeline is really pretty and if you want to get past the madeline thing, what about Adele or Adelaide? My names are Penelope (probably because of the girl with the pig nose association) and Bellatrix, probably because of the Harry Potter association but I think it's so much cooler than Beatrix plus the nickname Bella is awesome. Also Lyra, most people prefer Lila/Layla/Lola.

Pretty much all of my favorites. The main ones:
Tallulah: people have an irrational hatred of this name. They can't explain why but the just really dislike it
Fox (girl): all I ever hear is 'she'll get foxy jokes'. And? Having a name associated with being attractive a bad thing? Plus, this isn't the 1970s. Fox/foxy is not a part of the day-to-day vocabulary
Avril. I never disliked the name but my impression has improved since meeting a professional adult with it
Fox * Rohan * Jade * Shea * Eden * Blaise * Greer
Lotus * Noor * Tallulah * Jasper * Linden * Arden

I also like Avril. As for names that I like but most people hate--oh there are so many!
Eira (LOVE LOVE LOVE listen to it pronounced in Welsh)
Arwen and Eirwen
Cyan (actually DH loves that one)
Indigo for a BOY
Generally I find names along these lines that I like, then poll them and they rarely get a positive response...also DH vetoes a lot and keeps me from going very unique or using alternative spellings that I think are cool. Our most likely girl possibility now is Mira, although left to my own devices it would be Meara

Matilda-It's too clunky/old lady.
Olive- It's a food/ugly color/Olive Oyl/not as pretty as Olivia.
Lux-I'd only ever use this a middle name, but the general reaction is soap brand/trashy.
Arwen/Leia-Again, I'd only ever use the names as middles, but people say that they're too nerdy.
Imogen-a British name that hasn't crossed over to the US. Most people I meet haven't heard of the name so they have a negative reaction.
