Other than made up or misspelled names:
Most -lyn or -ly/lee/leigh/li names with the exception of Jocelyn, Madelyn, Hadley, and Paisley
Boy names on girls
Names from my generation (Nicole, Tiffany, Amanda, Lindsey, Tracey, Megan, Samantha, Holly, Brittany, Courtney, Joshua, Kevin, Nathan, etc. Why were these appealing?)
The Aiden craze
Jordan (on either gender)
Morgan (love on a boy, no on a girl)
Names heavily associated with Abrahamic religions with the exception of Lazarus, Ruth, Enoch, and Felix
Title names like King, Prince, Princess, Goddess, Messiah, etc.
Draven (I use to love this during my goth phase when I was 14-15)
Culturally insensitive names (Like a Caucasian person naming their child Sayuri, Yuki, Mohammed, Krishna, etc.)
Over the top word names (Taking from kids I have actually met: Twilight, Window, And Easel...not even "hippie", just bizarre)
Rowan on a girl. Love it on a boy.

My biggest grievances are with surname names, boys names on girls and made up rubbish. I'll try to pick specific ones...
Cricket – Rugby? Golf? Football?
Emmett - slang where I'm from. Bloody emmets...
Atticus - I dislike the sound and find it a bit silly. But as a brother to Lofton and Kitchenette? It could work.
Any English city - mostly, they're very grim places.
Desmond, Gavin, Graham, Alan, Derek & Ian - these men are in their 50s at least
Brayden, Brandon - they sound so bland. I think of Bran Flakes and a donkey braying.
Audrey – that old woman on Corrie
Atlas – to join siblings Ordnance Survey and Road Map?
Wilder, Rebel, Gunner, Maverick – no!
Clover – cow/margarine name. “We alllll love Clover, it's the way that it's churned!”
Magnolia – the boring colour walls are painted
Maximus – Gluteus Maximus
Wesley - unattractive sound
