    I don't get why people don't get Atticus and Imogen. I've known two Atticuses (Atticai?) and have a cousin named Imogen, so I don't see these name as any more unusual or inexplicable than Abigail and Isaac. *shrug*

    I just don't get the Aiden craze....I also volunteer in the nursery at a big church and I have seriously seen Aiden spelled 10 different ways. Generally not a fan of the "den" craze: Aiden. Kaiden, etc. Although, Brayden is ok with me lol.

    Oh man. I feel like there's a lot of these.
    -A big one is Imogen. I guess Immy is sort of cute, but Imogen doesn't really even sound like a name to me. It doesn't roll off my tongue easily. It's like I can't even say it right. Maybe if I had a different accent?
    -Madison/Addison and Maddie/Addie. They're not pretty in the least to me.
    -Any -lyn name (Brooklyn, Ashlyn, Gracelyn, Braelyn, etc) or -den name (Jayden, Aiden, Brayden, etc)
    - Also, the Mac- names, like Mackenzie, McKinley, and McKenna. What is that?
    - Any boy name on a girl. When did Ryan become unisex?
    - Harriet. It's just so ugly to me. Hattie is very cute, but Harriet is awful.
    - Clementine. Nothing about this is even close to cute.
    - Occupational names like Parker, Cooper, Harper, Piper, etc. The only one I can get on board with is Archer.

    Others include:
    Kylie, Nevaeh, Arianna, Chloe, Stella, Lucy, Delilah, Matilda, Grace
    Gavin, Wyatt, Harry, Sebastian, Bentley, Jace, Grayson/Grey, Easton, Sawyer, Jasper, Edward

    I'll probably think of more later, but these are the big offenders for me:

    Charlotte- The word "harlot" is right in there
    Violet- I always hear "violent" when people from my region say it
    Amanda- A man, duh (ever since that episode of Friends)
    Poppy- is my grandfather. Or opiates.

    I don't get Imogen either, can't pronounce it and looks and sounds weird to me. I also don't get Penny, to me it sounds like your saying your child is only worth a penny, which is awful to do to a child!
