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.

Grant.

Adam.

Zachary.

Derek.

Scott.

Bethany.

Andrea or "AHNdrea"

Connor or Conor. Sounds like the prized son of a suburban Frau/Herr couple of vague Irish ancestry who like Irish soda bread and leprechauns but can't tolerate the taste of whiskey or the sound of pipes.

Any misspelled variations of Brittany: Britney, Britny, Brittny, Brittnee, etc.

Any "C" name spelled with a K: Kourtney, Kasey, Kash, Klhoe, etc.

Most of all: Jackson spelled as "Jaxon." UGH!

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.

CAITLIN. And any name with an apostrophe in it.

My sister's name is Caitlin. You Americans don't pronounce it properly. It's Kat-LEEN, not CAIT-lin. I think Caitie's name is beautiful.

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.

Jeffery - why would you need three syllables? Stop fucking it up. Jeff or Jeffrey is fine without that extra crap in between.

[quote] Wendy. It's a fat girl's name.

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.

[quote] MARY!

32! WTF! That's my mother's name and her mother's name and her mother's mother's name. And MY middle name. And, yes, the Irish are not always the most creative.

I love that name. It's simple, sweet and graceful.

My name is Anton but I DESPISE when people who don't know me call me ANTOINE. There is a significant difference between Anton and Antoine. I blow an internal gasket whenever someone calls me that.

[quote]Any male name when given to a girl: Curtis, Evan, etc.

Add Douglas to this list. There was a thread earlier this year about a couple who were naming one of their twin baby girls Douglas. He could not be talked out of it. Apparently it used to be a girl's name 100 years ago.

[quote]One name I really love for boys is "Seth". I've never met an ugly or stupid Seth.

I know a Seth with a lisp. Unfortunate name for him.

Jayden Trey Colin Ismo (Finish name) Rob Fran (bad name for either sex) Brock Kylan or Kellan Ronnie (Ronald) Tracey Trevor Rupert any hyphenated first name (ex John-Paul,Jean Marc) Dolph Guido Philip Gerhardt George Randy - a 'husky' aka fat boy's name Kim (bad for men, ok for women) Adolphus Florian

Dorkas Zoey Calista Sjors (Dutch name) sounds like a venereal disease. Any female name that is named after an alcoholic beverage. Trashy Brandy Sherri Candy Belou Chanice Gaby Chandra Madison Crystal Bristol Brooklyn

From experience, all boys with the name Jake or Joey tend to be hot.

Never met one of those that wasn't a snooty bitch.

I actually like guy's names with foreign origins that are spelled/prounanced differently - like Tomas and Luis.

I don't like girly names for guys like Shannon and Courtney. Or nicknames that persist after the age of 30 - Skipper, Chip, Sonny, Ace, etc.

Someone should make an "if you were going to have a child, what would you name it" thread. I think DL posters' taste in baby names they actually like could be fascinating.

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.

I thought it was something that only existed in porn movies or "Hee Haw" but I actually met two Bobby Joe's (female at that). One was the wife of an ex co-worker and she had vanity licence plates that read "BJ" with some number beside it. I can only imagine how often she got honked at. I loathe those hick names: Bobby Joe, Betty Joe, Billy Sue.
