Haley/Hailey/Hayley's and I hated it. I was always 'tall Haley', 'Haley with no I and 1 y", 'blonde Haley'(until I dyed my hair dark), etc. I absolutely loathed that. I've vowed since I was 15 that I'd never give my child a top 100 name unless I was completely in love with it (Florence + Martha are top 100 in England, where I plan on living one day), simply to avoid the labelling like that. I also have a rule, if I know more than 5 people aged 30 or under with that name, I won't use it. (Emma, Lauren, Charlotte, Lucy, Sophie, Katie, Emily, Olivia, Jessica, Katelyn/Kaitlyn/Caitlin/Katelynn/Kaitlin, Ella and Danielle have all been vetoed via this rule). Glad you like my list

Seren's just below the top 100 in the UK :-) I know my accent makes a lot of things sound weird. It also depends a bit on how adventurous you are I think ;-)
