I love a lot of names that most people see as extremely clunky (Esther, Ursula/Ursuline, Helga; Cornelius, Hansel, Siegfried, Oswald) and some of these 'crazy' word/problematic/aggressive names (Sailor, Dixie, Jezebel, Beretta; Gunner, Heller, Killian). I also think Waldo and Floyd are really cool and I don't mind Sloane, that most Berries seem to hate with a passion.
I don't see the appeal of many surname/invented/syllable 'mix and match' names, but neither do most other Berries. There are names that I dislike that are very 'Nameberry style', though, such as Wren, Nora, Julia; Lincoln, Caleb and Tristan.polina ∙ 19 ∙ art history major ∙ web developer

Like: Agatha, Virgil, Hershel
Dislike: Wren, Paisley, Jasper, Briony, Maisie
I'm also in the camp that dislikes names chosen for machismo, such as Cannon, Gunner, etc. But I do not mind traditional names that happen to sound like violent words, like Cillian or Gunnar (pronounced the Swedish way). I also dislike names chosen for materialistic reasons: Prada (I've met one), Chanel, Porsche (Portia is fine), Bentley, etc.

A lot of the names I like are either wildly hated or wildly loved:
Vivienne (but I don't really like Vivian/Vivien/etc)
Augusta/August/Augustine (though I don't like Augustus for some reason)
And I tend to dislike names that are so popular that they're boring, but I love names like Henry, William, Ryan, Olivia/Oliver, and Victoria.
Some names that are really popular that I don't like:
Liam (I know it's short for William, but I just don't like the sound)
Margaret/Maggie (don't like the sound + associated with someone I don't like)
