Have to agree with R1 - many older English first names just turn me off.
Nigel, Clive, Alfie, Graham, Simon - I believe many of these are now 'old-timey' names. Not sure how many are named this now, but these are distinctly UK names that no one (perhaps some Simons) in the States would have.
I don't know anyone in the States who find these names appealing.
Oh - and Gareth! Blech.
Not saying we haven't fucked things up in the States with the Aiden, Kaden, Jaden bullshit.

I'm pretty tolerant of given names in general, but I despise the name Basil. I had a lengthy fling with a guy by that name and ended up despising him. (I could write a book about his attitudes and antics.) I ended up hating the name.

As a teacher I get to see the fashions in names come and go, as well as piling up a long list of names that I just can't stand after dealing with one (or two, or three, or...).
Growing up, I loved the name Nicholas, and thought if I ever had a son I would name him that. Now I cannot stand the name. Same with Patrick. Every Nick and Pat I've ever met has been a real little shit. The worst names however, for me, are the Old Testament abominations: Noah, Zachariah, Jedediah, Obediah, etc. Also high up on the list are David, Kieran (any spelling), Todd, and Angel.
And since I'm venting, I fully expect to have a student named Covid before I retire. Don't scoff -I've already had a Cocaine, Urine, and Parentheses (actual legal names, I kid you not).

Beware of anyone with an overly aggressive biblical name like ^Micah^ , Josiah or Caleb. They or their parents tend to be religious nut cases. But, if they're Pennsylvania Dutch / Deutsch, its probably OK and they will be hot and great in bed once they learn the ropes.

I find both Jesus and Mohammed unnecessary. It seems they should be sacrilegious, especially Mohammed, a religion that doesn’t even allow a visual representation of him, but sure name every boy in your family that name. I saw this all the time in Brooklyn and Queens, every boy in the family named Mohammed for fucks sake. How is any even a half religious girl going to feel OK getting fucked by these guys, let alone a devout one which they are looking for? Do the Hindu name their kids after gods, I guess when they’re polytheistic it uses up a lot more names. I heard of guys called Ganesh, but I think as a nickname. Do the Jehovah’s name their kids that? Probably quite a few Scientologist have named their kids Ron, David or Tom I bet.

Cunts I have known have soured me upon:
Charles (especially when shortened to Charlie, but never when Chazz)
James (especially when Jimmy)
Lucas (but Lukes are generally great)
Oliver (especially when Ollie)
Shawn (spelled this way, no comment on Sean/n)
Jonathan/John (especially when Johnny)
Nicholas (only sometimes when Nick)
Benjamin (especially when Ben)
I don’t want a kid, but if I did by some freak hand of Fate end up having a son, I’d name him something like Marmaduke or Beauregard or Harrington instead of any of these boring-ass Christian names. Just so, if they turned out to be a shithead, at least they’d be a uniquely memorable and posh shithead.

I co-sign, R9. However, I don't mind Aidan/Aiden. It's an old name. The similar-sounding ones that came later suck, including Braden and Caden.
Never liked last names used as first names: Colby, Anderson, Clayton, Wentworth, Kennedy, Carter, Hudson. They sound pretentious. Even worse are parents who name their son King, Prince, Duke, Marquis, Thane, or Baron.
