    First off, I love your names, especially Avril.Adeline is really pretty and if you want to get past the madeline thing, what about Adele or Adelaide? My names are Penelope (probably because of the girl with the pig nose association) and Bellatrix, probably because of the Harry Potter association but I think it's so much cooler than Beatrix plus the nickname Bella is awesome. Also Lyra, most people prefer Lila/Layla/Lola.

    Pretty much all of my favorites. The main ones:
    Tallulah: people have an irrational hatred of this name. They can't explain why but the just really dislike it
    Fox (girl): all I ever hear is 'she'll get foxy jokes'. And? Having a name associated with being attractive a bad thing? Plus, this isn't the 1970s. Fox/foxy is not a part of the day-to-day vocabulary

    I recently met a woman (40ish) named Avril. I never disliked the name but my impression has improved since meeting a professional adult with it

    I also like Avril. As for names that I like but most people hate--oh there are so many!

    Eira (LOVE LOVE LOVE listen to it pronounced in Welsh)
    Arwen and Eirwen
    Cyan (actually DH loves that one)
    Indigo for a BOY

    Generally I find names along these lines that I like, then poll them and they rarely get a positive response...also DH vetoes a lot and keeps me from going very unique or using alternative spellings that I think are cool. Our most likely girl possibility now is Mira, although left to my own devices it would be Meara

    My mother literally wrinkled her nose at Hugo, and I also get the same reactions to Milo (so sweet!). For the girls, it's Matilda (so lovely!) and even Lilia. My family is so unimaginative.

    The only names on here that I've almost ALWAYS gotten negative responses to are:
    Alaska - So a pageant girl is named this, so? I'm sure there's pageant girls names Emily, Sophia and Isabella too
    Brooke - It's dated, apparently
    Fallon - Masculine, ugly and white-rrash have been some of my favorites
    Heather - Also dated
    Julie - "Why on Earth would you give your child a nickname when the beautiful Julia exists"? Erm, cause I like it?
    Sailor/Saylor - Don't even get me started...
    Mark - I had someone ask me why I was even on this site if I was considering using such a boring and unimaginative name. Erm, ok.
