Do the names that have celebrity relations really sound that bad? Would you automatically think of the celebrity if I introduced my child as one of them?Not expecting, just addicted

Maisie is pronounced Mai-Z.
Addelynn- This name is too trendy for my taste. I definitely prefer the classic Adeline.
Adele- Love it.
Agnes- I can’t wait for Agnes to come back in style.
Alivia- Definitely Olivia, but it’s so popular.
Aria- It has a very pretty sound, but it’s getting very popular.
Aurora- Something about this name has always been unattractive to me. What about Rory?
Cadence- Very trendy.
Celia- Very sweet.
Connelly- It seems to surname-y.
Elise- Too plain for a first name.
Ensley- It sounds made up.
Esmee- It’s not really my style, but the Esme spelling is better.
Eve- It’s a little boring.
Evelynn- Evelynn is trendy. Evelyn is classic.
Grace- Very nice.
Isla- It’s so breezy! I love it.
Jennifer- There are more than enough Jennifers in this world, most of them 30-40.
Lacey/Lacy- I like the Lacy spelling better.
Lee- Lee looks masculine to me. What about Leigh? But both seem a little plain.
Lila- Very pretty.
Lorelei- I love Lorelei. There’s just something about it.
Lucille- I really love this in the middle spot, but I don’t really like it as a first name.
Lynn- Very “mom” sounding, and rather plain.
Maisie- I love it as a nickname.
Marilynn- The Marilyn spelling is better, but it is completely associated with Ms. Monroe.
Mckenna/Makenna- I dislike both, but McKenna is better.
Melina- It sounds very “mermaid” to me. But it’s too frilly.
Odelia- It’s pretty, but it sounds like a mash-up of two different names to me.
Opal- Very nice.
Rosslynn- Rosalind is fantastic. Rosslynn looks a little absurd.
Rylee- Too trendy. Riley is better, but not much better.
Savannah- Very southern. I like it.
Sheridan- Too hotel-y.
Waverly- Not really my taste.
Abram- I like it a lot. Bram is so cute.
Alec- I don’t like it, but mostly because of associations.

Ashton- Too Ashton Kutcher.
Beckett- I like it a lot.
Benjamin- A fantastic classic.

Devon- Not really my thing.
Dominic- Like this a lot.
Donovan- Like this too.
Dylan- It seems trendy to me, for whatever reason.

Ellis/Ellison- Too girly.
Emeric- It sounds like an elf name.
Emerson/Emery- I like Emerson a lot. I hate that people are using it for girls.
