What names are on your hate list ? ** don't answer if you are easily offended by others opinions**

I am sure someone will get ten kinds of offended by my list even though i'm not telling anyone they can't use them or that it matters to me, I am wondering what are on some of your hate list's of names, names you can't stand and would never used. I mainly am just curious of our differences and what types of names others dislike is all not meant to be offensive just informative.

Please don't hate on people for the names they don't like we all have names that we love, names we like, names we can stand and ones we hate.
BTW you can choose to or choose not to give reasons

  • I can not stand when names are "Popular" I would never want to be one of the 3 kids in the class with the same name.

  • Wow, you hate A LOT of names. One of my DD's name is on that list but, I'm not one of those people that gets mad if people don't like my kid's names.

    Agatha, Agnes, Bertha, Brooklyn/Brooklynn/Brooklin, Calleigh/Callee, Caylee/Kaylee/Kayleigh, Chasity, Charity, Destiny, Diamond, Ecstasy, Fantasia, Gertrude, Naomi & Neveah.

    Braden, Jayden, Kayden etc.... Kade, Kolby and, traditional C names purposely spelled with a K.

  • I don't like the 'unique' spelling trend, either. Or is that yuuneaq?

    I don't hate them, but I avoided using any popular or trendy names. Celebrities, cities, popular fictional characters... all had to go. I also avoided any name ending in an 'a'.

  • my daughter is Molly. She was born in 2006 and it's taken off like CRAZY since then. We did not know at the time it was also a very common dog name, LMAO.

    My husband hates the names Cooper and Mason with a PASSION which is a shame since I like them both
    I loathe anything with an apostrophe or stupid hyphen or more than say 6 letters MAX. Some poor teacher is gonna have to teach your kid to write that crap some day.

    cheesy fake religious things annoy me too as do locations and brands
