I like word names. Two of my top names are November & Lavender...
I don't think any names are "stupid". Obviously a lot aren't my style. Made up names aren't stupid per say, they just don't suit my taste. I do question parents who choose names that I find unappealing or trashy, though.
I also like a lot of names that were used a long time ago like Athena.Girls:
Brenna, Coraline, Cordelia, Elodie, Francesca, Gianna, Helena, Ingrid, Margaret, Marilyn
Alaric, Griffon, Ivan, Joesph, Kenneth, Lucian, Nero, Orion, Phillip, Samson

I also like word names, just not especially weird ones. Lavender is one of my favorites, too!Coming back after a long, accidental hiatus from the site.

I don't think of any names as stupid but I think some are harder on children than others. And how difficult a name may be for a child completely depends on their personality and interests. Banjo or Guitar may not work very well for a child who has no interest in music or adult who is more interested in being a judge, doctor, or accountant than a musician. Likewise, certain names will affect how a person may be treated by others based just on the name - I would never name a daughter Brandi or Bambi or something like that because for many people the names call to mind strippers and bimbos.
I muh prefer versatile names that work across any type of personality, interest, career aspiration, etc. For example, Augustus could be Augustus, August, Auggie, or Gus depending on the child/adult bearing the name. A Miranda could be Miranda, Mira, Mandy, or Randi depending on the girl/women.Gwen Eleanor... Mary Josephine ... Anna Juliet ... Iris Evelyn ... Sage Catherine ** Arlo Grant ... Drew Thomas ... Eli James ... Owen Vincent... Jay Theodore
