This thread ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ covers most of the names you are asking about.


No matter what anyone else thinks it is not their place to tell a parent what to name their child and it is not their place to tell a parent they hate that child's name.
It is possible the name you chose for your child is not as exciting to others as it is to you.

Skye, Brielle, Hunter, Tristan, Hayden, Tyler, Taylor, the list of silly, trendy-impress-my-friends names is endless.

A name that anybody can't easily spell (ex. Saoirse); a name that would embarrass the child with other children making fun of it (ex. Precious, Sebastian); an obvious surname (Miller, Anderson); a name that denotes a specific religion (ex. Mohammed); a name of an object (ex. Apple); an obviously silly-sounding name when combined with the surname (ex. Benedict Cumberbatch); a made up name (ex. LeQuinzy); a name of a controversial or very famous celebrity (ex. Michael Jackson); naming a boy an obviously girl's name (ex. Sue); a name of a city (ex. Brooklyn); an ugly sounding name (ex. Ursula, Abner); an old sounding name (ex. Ethel, Barney); trendy or too popular name at any given time (ex. Emma, Tristan).

Randy - seriously never understood why anyone would name their son/daughter this.

1 sexually aroused or excited:
‘as nervous as a randy adolescent on a hot date’
‘he was making her more and more randy’

2 Scottish archaic having a rude, aggressive manner

I don't think OP was asking for suggestions. Or for that matter, advice.

Cody, Tucker, and Cory to name a few. You can't age into those names.

I wouldn't give a boy a name that is considered a girl name (even if it was historically a male name.)
Stacey
Tracy
Shannon
Ashley
Carroll
etc.
