I love Nevaeh which is despised on here.
I’m from Liverpool and I hate the way Isla is pronounced all dragged out and elongated with a heavy I at the beginning.
I like Lily on some kids but hate it on others.
Can’t stand Seren, but It’s very popular on here.
Amelie is like a mixture of Emily and Amelia. It’s either one or the other pick one.

Love the name Holly but DH doesn't so that's never being used. Also liked Millie (vetoed for a future daughter by DH again) so that ended up being the cats name.

I find some of the popular names mentioned on MN rub me the wrong way- specifically Saskia or Acacia. They feel almost a bit "unique" for the sake of it but then again that's just my preference.

Favourite names are the 'boring names' by MN standards such as Isabelle, Catherine etc. I love that they have nicknames suitable for younger ages but the full name is a strong adult option.

Not fond of word names, like Storm, Skye, Forest, Oak etc

My fave name was Liberty I desperately wanted it for DD but DH didn't like it.
I also love Piper, Paris, Sydney and Shelby but everyone I speak to hates them😂
Love Blake for a boy
I really don't like the name Olivia it's so so popular most people I know have named their DD that or Isabelle/Bella. I don't know why people choose a name that's in the top 5!

Hate anything Etta eg Rosetta Henrietta Etta.
Aside from Pauline I think anything ending in Line is far too try hard.

I love biblical names despite not being religious. I really dont like boys names on girls or surnames as first names.

Hate any name that smacks of nickname. Let them BE nicknames. =I'm also not a fan of weird spellings for the child's sake. Other than that, most names appeal to me.
