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.

I also agree about Magnolia, it's a beautiful tree but I think paint.

I agree with basically all of this (except Emmett; it's awesome and I'm unfamiliar with the slang), but the Clover one made me literally Laugh Out Loud, which I disguised as a cough and now my mum thinks there's something wrong with me. Also, my 17-year-old brother is called Alan, but he's already been told it's an old man name.
You could also add Malcolm to the old man list. I hear all the time on here and do not get it at all.
