I don't like names that are so trendy that everyone is naming their kids that. I also don't like any of the old fashioned names or weird names celebrates are naming their kids.

Behind the Name: Meaning, origin and history of the name Saoirse

It would be embarrassing to be an American Saoirse who says "Sheer-see" on a visit to Ireland. This is a very good example of why you should double- and triple-check that you are pronouncing that exotic name correctly before you give it to your baby.
Her grandparents live in Ireland and she visits them frequently. All I know is what her mom told me. It is possible, I am not remembering correctly, but I am pretty sure that's how she said it.

Someone else on C-D contributed that as a hated name on another thread. It cracked me up so much!
So memorable.

Dennis doesn't seem to fit in this list. You might not like it, but it's a normal, common name, not weird or made-up or old-fashioned like the others

I remember a magazine article a long time ago about a boy named Sirius. He didn't like his name but his father was hoping when he got older he would appreciate being named for the brightest star in the sky. I can imagine the conversation: "Are you serious? Is your name really Sirius?"

David, since it's too common.

But most definitely not Muhammad or Ali.
