    And Compass too

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

    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
    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.

    This is just one of those across-the-Pond differences. Desmond isn't used very much in my area, but Gavin is very popular among boys---the oldest Gavin I've met was about 13 or 14 and the rest were elementary school age (5-10-ish), though I had a great-uncle whose name was Robert Gavan. I also had a classmate in the second grade named Alan as well as a kindergarten classmate named Derek and two high school friends named Ian---they'd be about 24-25 now, and most American Dereks and Ians would be 15-35-ish. And my teenage sister has a friend named Graham; they met a 30-ish man named Graeme and there was much rejoicing.

    It's funny, but I had the exact opposite reaction to yours when I first heard of Sir Derek Jacobi: "You mean there's someone named Derek who's over 35?"

    Ditto Hannah (such an ugly sound but so so common, there are so many in my grade and it's my middle name...huh?) and Olive (I mean I love the food, but as a name?) Others not including the names usually universally hated by actual name lovers like Kaylin and Raylee etc:
