This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.

I would give you a weird look too
Clarissa makes me think of a Middle aged overweight Asian woman who wears too much makeup Lol
Harper I have heard a few times but always girl.
But I'm also a girl who loves Cassius for a boy so I digress ha
lol I ment for the names Harper and Ocean. Never for the name clarissa or elise. That's actually my name and everyone loves it. They always think it sounds hispanic though...and I'm not, just a mixed girl. German, indian, irish, black. That's funny that that's what you think of though, lol never heard that, very interesting!

Understandable! Some names are fine but i don't like them cause certain people come to mind! Lol. That's my middle name I love it. I like when it's spelled with a y too.

I struggle with the boy names for girls because most of them I don't like, but I do love Austin for a girl based on the song "Austin". Even then, I know it would get the side eye quite often. You also have to think about when they make a resume etc.

It's more spellings that I get annoyed with. Your kid will forever be spelling their name for people nf getting their name spelled incorrectly. I know a "Jaymeey". Seriously? I also know a "Steffanee". What is wrong with just Stephanie?! It's pronounced the dayum same!

If I was registering a birth and the parents were spelling the name in some ridiculous way, I'd deliberately spell it correctly on the form.

Also, Blue Ivy belongs on the list of worst names.

My name is Lisette (my first name is Maddy, but my middle name is Lisette. Mom liked Lisette better, sooo...there we are.)

I would have preferred Elyse. My mother played Beethoven's "Fuer Elyse" on the piano all the time, it was her fave song. I think that's what she should have named me

There's lots of strange made-up and weirdly spelt names that I hate and really old fashioned ones that you tend not to hear these days, but thinking about widely heard names I'd have to say:

Nigel
Malcolm
Colin
Trevor
Anything beginning with Br - Brandon, Brendan, Bruce, Brian, Brad etc....

Shirley
Audrey
Sharon
Crystal
Anything beginning with Br - Brenda, Bree, Brynne, Brianna etc...

That's funny. My daughter's name is Ocean. It sounds strange for a boy. In my ears that is..

My aunts are all named after Greek muses.

Euterpe
Polimnia
Terpsicore
Caliope
Melpomedes
Urania

Those are their first names. Needless to say, all of my aunts go by their middle names. HOWEVER, to make matters worse they all have the same middle name. Lol. -___-

The only person i ever met named ocean was a beautiful man, and it just worked. I think it really depends on how they look. If i had a son and he didn't look like an Ocean, I'd definitely change it lol. But i love it for a girl more, just definitely do not want a girl.

Hm, no clue! I have never read/seen Hunger Games so I didn't know it was a name in there. He never said it was in reference to that book, but I guess it very well may be.
