I adore Imogen, I can't figure out what it is that others hate about it.
I hate the name Sloane; I can't find a single redeeming quality in it, and I feel like I hear it more and more often these days. I can't get behind Quinn on a girl, either. The only Quinn I know is a boy, and the only girl Quinn I've heard of is the bratty cheerleader character from Glee. I don't watch the show, but I've seen gifs and have caught snippets of it while channel flipping and either I'm missing a large chunk of her character or she's a horrible person.
I don't hate Josephine or Willhelmina because I can at least understand that they appeal to some people, and I like that they're legitimate girl names with a history behind them, but for the life of me I can't figure out what anyone sees in them. They're names I only associate with Nameberry, so if I met one in real life I'd HAVE to ask the mom if she was a member here.I hope to be a mom one day. For now I enjoy being a name lover.
My apologies for any typos; i post from my mobile phone.

I love Agnes, and that generally gets a terrible wrap outside of Nameberry. I also like Bentley, and that's super trendy and yeah, awful. I still like it, though. I think Bentley nn Ben is adorable. Too bad it's so trendtacular.
Isabelle doesn't get a lot of love on here, either, but I adore that.
And I can imagine that Edith wouldn't get a lot of love outside of Nameberry, but I adore that, too. I would LOVE to have two girls named Agnes and Edith.Ashley

I've always thought that Nevaeh actually sounded quite nice, based on phonetics alone (I've never met one in real life, but in my head I pronounce it like Niamh/Neve with an 'a' on the end). It's the 'heaven spelt backwards' thing that put me off. I wouldn't call a child Heaven, so Nevaeh is out too.
Names I love that not many others do are; Hester, Damaris, Bertram, Jago, Hamish. I also quite like Hayden & Aidan, which don't really count as they are pretty popular in real life, but don't go down well at all on many naming forums.
Popular names that I can't get on board with are; Jack, overly cute names M-ie names (Maisie, Millie, Mollie), and the Nameberry favourite Clementine.Girls: Alice, Anna, Astrid, Beatrice, Clara, Elodie, Emily, Evelyn, Hannah, Hermione, Lorna, Phoebe, Sophie, Sylvia
Boys: Andrew, Arthur, Elliot, Griffin, Hamish, Henry, Leopold, Martin, Peter, Robin, Rupert, Thomas, Tobias, William
Guilty Pleasures: Athena, Damaris, Digory, Emrys, Ganymede, Hester, Jessamine, Phineas, Myrtle, Nymeria, Nyx
