Emerson, my all time favorite name but it sounds to similar to DS's name so would never use it, I guess that's what I get for letting DH have final say on ds's name lol
Spencer, used it for a pet long before I ever considered having kids, I'm kicking myself now
Azaria, for obvious reasons

I'm not a fan of weird names, or strange spellings.
My own name is normal but spelled Amie, which means I have to spell it for everyone, all the time (even so people still get it wrong, I get Aimie, Aime, etc.) I also get called Annie a lot, which is awkward when I have to correct people. I'd never be so disrespectful to my Mum as to change it, but it does get frustrating at times.
My maiden name is really weird too, which means it used to get spelled wrong, pronounced wrong, and teachers and principals had such a hard time with it. Luckily my married name is a lot easier
My kids are getting nice normal names, spelled normally. I want them to be able to buy name mugs and stickers, I want them to be able to say their name and not have to spell it out for everyone. I don't want them being picked on for having a different name, which I was quite a bit

Orla - vetoed by DP
Maisie - May is really common in my family so I can't do it.
Charlie - because if we have a daughter she'll be Sophie, no question. However I look after a Sophia who's brother is Charlie and I wouldn't want to copy them too much if I ended up with a Sophie and Charlie, and since Sophie is a must if I had a boy first, he'll be Toby.
I want a kid with the initials TJ, but DP's ex was called TJ so that's out.
Anna/Annie I love, but doesn't go with DPs surname at all (Ander-sson)

Aiden, Riley and Ethan are all out - I work with kids and had too many very difficult clients with these names!
I wouldn't use any name of a close relative, and no 'creative' spellings or hyphenated names.
