1) Olive. I know it's popular on here, but I don't really like olives to begin with and I don't find this feminine or pretty.
2) Gracyn, Gracelyn and variants. Grace is lovely. I don't see the point of making it more masculine looking and throwing "y"s in for the heck of it.
5) Jayden, Jaden, Jaydon, and all its rhyming friends
6) Messiah. WAY too much for a kid to look up to!
7) McKenna, Mackenzie, and all the Mac- names for girls
8) Riley and its misspellings, on either gender
9) Cody. Unless you're a cowboy, I don't think it works well on an adult.
10) Agatha. Always makes me think of Miss Trunchbull.
11) Peyton (Sorry, couldn't limit myself to 10!)
As far as general trends, I loathe almost every name ending in -lee (Kaylee, Kynlee, Brynlee, etc.), as well as intentional misspellingsMiriam ~ Helena ~ Estella ~ Beatrice ~ Anastasia ~ Alice ~ Veronica ~ SarahPaul ~ Wesley ~ Walter ~ Edmund ~ Isaac ~ Abram ~ Gabriel

1. Tallulah - it doesn't even sound like a real name to me, it's like something I child would invent for a doll
2. Lexi - I just find it really ugly, though I wouldn't even mind as much if it were spelt Lexie
3. Riley/Kylie/Miley - sound awful to me, though if you have to use Riley please use it on a boy
4. Nevaeh - how is the opposite of heaven a good thing?
5. Almost anything ending in -lyn or that sound - I'll give an exception to Madeleine, but with that spelling only. Also if the name ends in -line I will pronounce it -LEEN or -LYNE as that's how it should be pronounced
6. Barry, Gary and Larry (but not Harry) - they're just ugly
7. August and it variants - I don't really know how anyone can like the syllable 'aug' *shudders*
8. Brayden - I don't like any of the Aidan variants (except Aidan itself) but at least I can sort-of understand the appeal of the others. Brayden however is just ugly full stop
9. Tyler/Taylor/Mason/Carter/Cooper et al. - I just find occupation names rather bizarre. Is this what the parents want their children to become when they're older? If it is fair enough but why not use Electrician, Farmer and Dentist while you're at it. Makes as much sense to me
10. Billy/Millie/Tilly - these are fairly popular here at the minute, but I really just hate them. Maybe it's because I'd only ever heard them on animals until recently and 'millie' where I am from was the word used for chavs before chav was a word. Only positive is that they're better than WillieMy furry darlings ~ Bodie the border terrier & Portia and Penny the guinea pigs
Amabel ~ Beryl ~ Bryony ~ Cecily ~ Charis ~ Clara ~ Dinah ~ Flora ~ Georgiana ~ Ophelia ~ Rosamund ~ Sylvie ~ Tabitha ~ Tamsin ~ Violet
Arthur ~ Barnaby ~ Basil ~ Bertie ~ Darcy ~ Elliot ~ Felix ~ Fraser ~ Frederick ~ Henry ~ Monty ~ Rowan ~ Rupert ~ Theodore ~ Tristan

6. Tempest/Zephyr/Hurricane whatever
7. Perfect/Princess/Miracle etc.
9. Eloise/Elsie/Elsa/Elyse (pretty much all El...s... names that aren't just Elisabeth)
8. all names rhyming with Aidan
10. AustynOlivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin
