What children's names freak you out?

I always cringe when I see the following names on my class roster:
Mason
Travis
Alexia
Christopher
Tatianna (any given spelling)
Samantha
Malachi (again any given spelling)

No matter what year or how far apart they are, these names usually end up being a handful. Has anyone noticed the same pattern. I would never name a child of mine by any of these names.

Bacardi an Rebel. Yes, those are real name of students I've taught. Horrible combination personality wise and horrible names. I don't have any really bad names that are "normal" that I wouldn't name a child.

Tommy. This is the second year in a row I have a Tommy that will probably drive me nuts. The one last year did.

Devin - I've had a few of those that were the "I'm not doing anything" type.

Jacob - I couldn't believe my brother named his son that either!

After this year - Liam.

I have 2 of the sweetest Avas in my class this year. I wish the person who had trouble with that name could meet these girls!

Any "cutesy" name has either been an outright brat or a secretive one. I.e. once mommy/grandma is gone the true colors come out.

Angel (especially if it's a boy)
Precious
Faith
Hope
Joy (My lord!)
Angelica
Nevaeh (It's Heaven spelled backwards and they sure act like it.)

Also biblical names:
Mary
Peter

Any spelling of the name
Jaeden
Has always been an issue in grade 2. Many of them with a diagnosis, but still a handful.

I second (third) the name Damon as well. Never had a typical one of those.
