Shaniqua, and I'm not trolling. The "Q" sound just makes it sound so ugly, I think a "K" would sound better. Shanika.
I despise any of the white girl names that start with "K" so that means Katie, Kaleigh, Kylie, Kendra, Kourtney, etc are nails on a blackboard.
Andrea or "AHNdrea"

I loved the episodes of Mad About You after Jamie and Paul had their kid and spent several episodes coming up with a name. It was so non-funny (they just looked like idiots) and highly comical at the same time.
They came up with Mabel, one of the ugliest names ever, right up there with Bertha, Elsie and Hazel.

I hate the way "fuck" has been renamed "the F bomb." Only a moron would say "the F bomb."
"The F word" is bad enough, but it'll do on occasions where you don't want to say "fuck," but "the F bomb" marks its user as a pussy of the most pussified magnitude.

Mindy is the fattest of fat girl names.
My partner's Jewish family keeps recycling the same B names in naming sons for their dead grandfathers who were named Benjamin. Brett, Brandon, Brad, Blake. He'll say, "My cousin's son Brett is going to ..." and I have to stop him and say, "Which cousin and which Brett? There are at least three cousins' sons named Brett."
There are also a bazillion Scotts in his family, named for dead Samuels.
Funny thing is none of them are named Benjamin or Samuel, which are perfectly good names.

I think a better list would be what is your favorite names. It's easy to list what you don't like but harder to say what you do like and open yourself up to that criticism.
One name I really love for boys is "Seth". I've never met an ugly or stupid Seth.
A name I love for girls is "Lydia". Elegant without being pretentious.

Misspelled names drive me nuts, none so much as Michaela. I see it spelled Makayla a lot, A cousin of mine married a girl named Michaela and it was spelled correctly for once. Upon meeting her I asked her to thank her parents on my behalf for knowing how to spell her name correctly.
Names I hate:
Margot Jimmy Jack, Jackson, Jackie Courtney Kim or Kimmy (Kimberly is fine) Bryson Donovan Steven (Stephen is acceptable) Mikell (Michael is fine but common) Dion Randall or Randy Royce Jebadiah or any other "adiah" Dan, or Danny Seth Brittany or any variation thereof.
I also hate any name that is created by adding 'isha', 'quesha' 'ita' etc. to a random word to create an "ethnic" name.
Sitting in this room I can create several names this way
From Door: Dorisha Dorquesha Dorita
Printer: Printisha Printella
Phone: Fonisha Fonita Fonequita
Wall: Wallisha Walita Waltania
I hate this method of naming and I want to slap the parents of people.
I once considered writing a Children's mystery book about a character called Sherlokia Homegirl and her friend Watisha so that girls with these fucked up names could identify with some literally character.
