My husband and I both like classic names and this morning he got really enthusiastic and kept talking about how much he liked Gertrude as a name. I was trying to be polite, so I asked him whether he didn't think it was, perhaps, a bit *too* old fashioned? But he kept on insisting we could call her "Gertie" for short and Gertrude was so pretty and he just loved it.

Turns out it was an April fools day joke

(with apologies to any Gertrudes out there)

M DH did the same thing, he suggested Amelie as we both love the movie.

Now don't get me wrong, it's a lovely name, however, paired with our heavy Italian surname it just sounds wrong. He kept it up for a while before he said "I also like Bertha" and then I clicked as to what was going on.
