Girls

  1. Nevaeh ("heaven" spelled backward and one of the most divisive names around, according to Wattenberg)
  2. Destiny (people dislike names that confer a virtue onto a child, Wattenberg said -- and many associated this name with exotic dancers)
  3. Madison
  4. Mackenzie
  5. McKenna
  6. Addison (an example of a masculine named turned feminine, which many people dislike, Wattenberg said)
  7. Gertrude (people said this name is "ugly")
  8. Kaitlyn (for its "made-up" spelling)
  9. Makayla
  10. Bertha (author's note: duh!)

Boys

  1. Jayden
  2. Brayden
  3. Aiden
  4. Kaden (these rhyming names struck many as overdone, Wattenberg reported)
  5. Hunter (too much like a last name or "too violent")
  6. Hayden
  7. Bentley (people dislike brand-name names, Wattenberg found, calling them "trashy")
  8. Tristan
  9. Michael (too boring, according to some)
  10. Jackson

My son is Jayden, I love it. In australia its common but its not every second child lol So for me i know he wont be the only Jayden but he wont be the 6th kid in the class, i honestly dont care what people say he suits his name to the T. I have a cousin Aiden, My best friend is Makayla and my Friends baby is Nevaeh but she spelt it Neveah.

Most of these names are hated because of how common they are.. I believe they are forgetting there a SHITLOAD of terrible terrible names out there and yet they chose to pick on the ones that are obiously loved :)

Is your baby on there? Do you agree?
