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?

None of our names are on the list. I laugh that half of the boys' names rhyme and the last two say Michael Jackson.

My son's name is Cade, NOT Caden or Kaden. Does that count? It's a family name and I honestly never heard it until after he was born and we joined baby groups. My other son's name is Stone, definitely not on the list.

Surprisingly yes. Well my youngest at least.

His name is Tristan. I can honestly say I'm surprised by that.

I figured I would see my oldest son's name Damian before Tristan's.
