For some reason, I'm not fond of made-up names either. I'm puzzled about this since it seems contrary to my style but I just feel that way. I don't even like it when common names are spelled differently than usual. Perhaps I don't like the uncertainty of not knowing how to spell them. I do, however, tend to like a lot of unusual names such as historical or mythological names or even names that come from ordinary words that I find pleasing or interesting. In retrospect, I wish I had been more open-minded when naming my children.
