    I love Amadeus, Aristotle, Coltrane, Dorian, Elmo, Forrest, Galileo, Huckleberry, Macaulay, Sherlock and Sylvester. However, these names have strong associations which means many are considered unusable. *sigh* Alas, they will remain on my GP list.

    I adore the name Fiona, but Shrek has kind of turned me off from the name. I'm hoping by the time I have kids that no one will automatically think of an ogre if I decided to use it.

    Other names I like that people I know have tainted:
    Gage
    Reed (Although I prefer Reid)
    Aubrey ( I know two Aubrey's. One good, one bad)
    Autumn
    Ariel
    Not expecting, just having fun collecting names!

    My name is Erin. I am 24 years old and I have been a proud name nerd since I was 10.

    Ladies: Juliet Elaine, Madeleine Audrey, Emilia Noelle, Lydia Caris, Elodie Katherine, Carys Emily, Victoria Elise

    Gentlemen: Jonathan Rhys, Wesley Jay, Roman/Rowan Gabriel, Evan Parker, Elliott Jude, Dawson Cole, Jude/Judah Nathaniel, Rhys Nehemiah, Everett Jacob

    Names I like but feel are too strongly tied to one person or character;

    Atticus - although wonderful character to name after
    Romeo
    Ariel
    Sherlock
    Delilah - this is more the song!
    Ophelia
    Harper - Beckam owned now

    I'm sure there are more.

    My OH vetoed Emile which I love because of a footballer!!!
    Silas Robert Patrick - 7/10/13

    Penelope Elizabeth Pearl 23/3/15

    Anna [ah-nah] has always been one of my favourites. I'm terrified that if I named my daughter this, she'd always get referred to as the character from Frozen (though it's not off the table now).




    Anna Soleil. Eira Rosemary. Jane Leonora. Sylvie Primrose.
    Ada Leonora. Edith Primrose. Poppy Matilda. Rose Evangeline. Vera Poppy.
    Elliot Christian. Julian Theodore. Vincent Orion. Walter Edmund.

    also considering...
    Annevieve Claire Claudia Cressida Evangeline Guinevere Gwyneira Leora Marguerite Susan
    Atlas August Darcy Donovan Edmund Jasper Jude Loren Theoden Vaughn Willem Winston

    The one for me that is too close to a character/ real person is Jase (Too many Duck Dynasty references already!)
    I suppose we could use Jason or Jasper though, with Jase as a nn...

    There's other names that i love that are more common, but in my mind, still tied to someone/something famous. Doesnt mean they're ruled out. And others wouldn't make the connection unless they knew me well and knew where the name came from, LOL.
