Low class and stripper name excuses as someone with a "low class stripper name" being middle class and my mum works with children I don't think it's fair to say that all Ebony's are low class (normally it's also a black name which I find really bad) . Most low class people don't get low class names, I know two middle class Lakeisha's
Also I can't imagine a grandma with that name well one day there will be granddad Kayden's and grandma Nevaeh's and I will be Nana Ebony in 60 years time.

'can you picture a doctor with a name that cute?!"
Well, considering all of my past doctors have been Dr. *insert first initial and surname here* , yes? I don't even know my past doctors given names, nor do I care to be honest. A doctor who's first name is Millie could easily be more qualified than a doctor named Amelia or Millicent. I can't even begin to fathom looking down at a doctor over their name.

Haley is a stripper's name, or it's a name that'll end up all over Jerry Springer one day (my sister Mikayla has gotten the same), it's gotten ridiculous. My name's trashy? Ok cool, but yanno what? Honey Boo Boo's family isn't exactly high society, but Alana, Anna, Lauren/Lauryn, June and Jessica all seem to be regarded much higher than Haley and Mikayla.

My GP's first name is legitimately Daisy... I also know of a pharmacist named Zelie, and our Vet's name is Ike, not short for anything. Although I also see a double standard here between female/males, nobody would ever question whether a male Charlie could get a medical (or law or whatever) degree, but a female Charlie? No way. Call her Charlotte, at least. Hah.
And do these people not even contemplate that statistically, a huge number of doctors in 25 years will have names like Kyson and Mckailee? They're used by middle/upper class Americans all the time - yet Poppy or Maisie are too informal for that sort of environment? Yeah, super logical.Emmett - Cathal - Eoghan - Baez - Wilfred - Rufus - Hugh - Virgil
Rosemary - Lettice - Maude - Cordelia - Billie - Fenella - Eilidh
Names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. The smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

Jamie and Archie on a boy - no issues there, but as soon as I mention Millie or Edie for a girl I get 'can you picture a boss with that name?!" It's sad to be honest. Names like Lottie, Edie and Betsy were top names 100 years ago, now they're just nicknames. *le sigh*. I had a dentist once named Stephany, and I went to school with loads of girls who are going to become doctors of some kind, named Kylie, Jessie (not short for anything), Makayla, Daveena, it goes on. One girl I went to school with is from a family of all girls with unisex names - Alex, Taylor, Mackenzie and Spencer. Every single one of those girls is going to medical school/has completed medical school. Alex (just Alex) has now become a sports therapist without being an Alexandra, and Taylor (one of the first female Taylor's in my area) is now a chiropractor. Names aren't everything when it comes to the workplace.
