"The only name I think is truly,irredeemably awful is Ethel...not on someone's Gran...on a modern day child. Names are cyclical I suppose"

But they only become 'cyclical' if everyone follows the trend and names their kids the same top 10-20 names e.g. Harry, Amelia etc currently. If no name ever becomes 'overused' it will never 'belong' to any particular era.

My mother was dissuaded by all her friends from calling me the name she loved, because everyone said it was dull, old fashioned and grannyish. Guess what it was?

Yes, but you don't give your own baby a "sexy" name....do you? Fro example, Carlos is a sexy name (IMO) but it's not a name I would give to my DC.

Nigel, Robert (which is very popular around here), Janet and Maureen are dull names.

Although Maureens tend to be lovely, I find.
