    Names you just don't "get"?

    I apologize if there are lots of other threads like this, but what are the names you just can't wrap your head around?

    I don't get the appeal of these:

    Lincoln (for a girl)
    Winter (if you've lived in the Midwest you might scratch your head)

    What are yours?

    I don't get giving boys names to girls. I hate having to question if some names will soon become too feminine or complete unisex names.

    Surname/Boys names on girls - I feel like people who do this are terribly misguided. Wether there goal is to be "different" or for their daughter to be a "tomboy" there are better ways of finding a name that is unique/tomboyish without taking male names and surnames and sticking them on little girls. What happened to pretty names on girls? There is nothing pretty about the name Peyton or Riley. I don't understand what made people think they'd be good names for a little girl.

    @pemdas, totally agree w/ you on Phineas.

    @kaym210210, yes! It's tough to imagine the opposite scenario becoming mainstream. I feel kinda sad about the idea of female James.
