    Olive - I just think this is really ugly. I like it's vibes, but I just can't love it. Plus I'm an Olivia, so I just think it sounds too much like a new vintage-y alternative, like parents wanting to use Addison but choosing Adelaide instead just to be ironically 'cooler'.

    Eloise - I think it's hideous, really, I do. I know loads of Eloises in the UK.

    Gemma - Loads of American people on Nameberry seem to really love this, but in the UK it's dated and dull.

    Cecily

    Margo - Granted, this one has been on and off my list a few times. I REALLY REALLY want to love it, but I don't. Sometimes I think I try and force myself to like it, but I can't.

    Fiona - I think this is actually quite ugly. I know a lot in the UK.

    Lola - Again, I know lots of Lolas in the UK (even a few in their teens) I see the appeal, but I've had a couple of bad experiences. I suppose that isn't the name's fault, though!

    Erin - I personally think this is really ugly and masculine sounding. Lots of people on Nameberry seem to really like it, but to me it sounds awful.

    Avery and Emery - SO awful. You couldn't pay me to name my child either of these. Really, I can't stand them.

    Claire - Dull. Dull beyond belief. I do adore Clara, on the other hand.

    Lydia - Horrible. I really don't like it.

    Sorry if this just seemed like a 'slate all the names you can think of' post, but I just don't get Nameberry's obsession with some names.
    Emmett - Cathal - Eoghan - Baez - Wilfred - Rufus - Caspian - Hugh
    Rosemary - Lettice - Maude - Cordelia - Billie - Fenella - Eilidh - Annabel


    names for dreamy, sublime little darlings. the smell of springtime air, freckled knees, damp hair. Soft evening light and fiery hearts.

    olivia, seventeen, film student. owner of fluffy black cat Shura!
