I totally associate invented names or bizarre spellings with bogans or people of low socio-economic status. I agree that it's done to make their child seem less ordinary.
My husband is so traditional with names it's almost impossible. I like some traditional names but not others. Most of the names I like are very classic though.
I usually teach at a private school and it's true, most of the names are fairly traditional but when I've done relief at the local big 'diverse' state school some of them take some pronouncing... Not difficult to say but made me cringe a bit - yr 9 boy named 'Killa' pronounced "killer". 😕
I was just at the shops and heard a woman yelling out to her daughter, her name was Halo (pronounced Haylo) 😳
