Subject: What are your palette cleanser/ breath-of-fresh-air names at the minute?

I feel like in a little bubble of irritatingly sickly sweet names at the moment. For one, my love for Isabelle officially no longer exists. Same goes for Arabella, Daisy, Lucille, and so forth. You know, the sugary, syrupy kind of feminine name. In fact, a whole bunch are going to depart from my PNL the first chance I get to go through it. Argh. I blame my cousin and Bonnie and Essie for this, or the rash of cutsie baby name announcements on my facebook.

What I really want now is something like Ludwig or Ichabod or Otto or Uzma or Alecto. So not twee cutsy cr&p. Something spiky and kinda unwieldy, kinda ugly or uncool and so much more fun for it.

So, what cute names are you really hating at the moment? What are your palette cleansers du jour? What uncool, ugly, weird names (or just, eh, any names) are you finding a breath of fresh air? I know I mentioned mainly female - but either gender works. Or... you know, what name trends are bugging you, and what names seem like a total relief in comparison?
