I'll copy Duane and say that my actual name (Elsa) is up there with the worst names to give a child. Honestly - who names their child after a painful medical condition? Not to mention that no one ever gets my name right, but I really don't mind being called Alison or Lisa. I'm not as fond of being called Alma or Elna, though.

And I'm with Diane, I loathe made up names and I hate names with apostrophes that are soooooooo overused in fantasy fiction.
