Asher. Maybe I've read one too many books with terrible Ashers, but I don't like it. Oddly, though, it's starting to seem more appealing... maybe the memories of those book characters wearing off? (I don't particularly like most ash- names, but especially Asher.)
Gelsey. The sound just isn't pleasant IMO, and it seems like it could easily be mispronounced as "jealousy." Which is not good.
Garland for a girl. It makes much more sense for a boy... with the -land ending, and the gar- beginning like Garfield (both the president and the cat).
Sylvia over Silvia. Sylvia is fine, but Silvia is prettier IMO. It's more similar to "silver" and it feels oh so ethereal and silvery and foresty, like a forest in the darkness of night with moonlight filtering through the trees. I just adore Silvia, and Sylvia/Sylvie is fine but I don't get why everyone prefers it."Wren." Teenberry (14). Far from kids, but name obsessed.
