Fairly normal names which sound utterly annoying

I vote for … [bold]Tiffany[/bold] !

"Tiffany" is one of the trashy "luxury names".

Very popular with poor people.

Often seen on stripper poles.

Others being....

Porsche, Lexus, and Mercedes

Any name that should belong to a cat or a stripper is asking for trouble. If you call your kid Angel, Misty or Brandy, watch out.

Justin. I always hope the surname will be CASE or THYME.

The name Rachael/Rachel sounds almost scary to me, as if it should be a verb for a deadly (or at least debilitating) farm machinery accident.

Lily. Over used and no longer special or pretty.

Connor. Or any other "last name as first name"...Riley, Madison, Parker, etc. Yuck.

Most Irish last names are actually first names. MacRory means "son of Rory", O'Connor means "grandson of Connor", etc.

Connorson, Roryson.

I hate cutesy names like Kaylie, or Haylie. And for boys, Jayden and other manufactured-sounding cutesy names.

And I agree about the craze for last names used as first names: Madison (yuck), Tiffany (older, but still pretentious and embarrassing), Hunter,Taylor, etc...ugh

I love how stupid "faux Irish" parents misspell the name "Connor" as "Conner."

I chuckle everytime I run across a kid named "Conner."

Agree about the cutesy names. Can you imagine 45-year-old Kaylee or Brayden running for public office, or as a higher-up in a large company?

No wonder! His parent's clearly just aren't as informed as YOU are!

It will happen.

I remember in the late 80s when my charge nurse said, "Well, I guess it was bound to happen. We now have a doctor named Jamie."

I said, "I associate that name with the children of my older sister's friends. There were something like 3 girls named Jamie."

And the charge nurse said, "It's a he."

And we both laughed. "Jamie" is a child's name, not a name for a man. But Dr Jamie and his generation thought a man named Jamie was just fine.

Agree with Tig Notaro. Fucking annoying beyond belief and description.

Keisha, Lakeisha, Lawanda

Madisonk Makayla, Brittany and its various hideous spellings

"Cruz", being called to by his mother; both of them blonder-than-blond, for Christ' sake.

Kardashian (oh, wait - not EVEN fairly normal!

Trayvon-yuck. Where do they come up with those names? Shaniqua, Latisha, etc. I suppose when you have 12 or 14 kids and you're home all day watching TV you have time to think up nonsense. Ha Ha!

Shawn (instead of Sean), Dakota, Bentley, Tristan

Destiny, Sloan, Addison

That's right, r18!

Say, by the way, is your name "Conner?"

by Anonymousreply 2307/30/2013

Crissy and its spelling variations. How do you expect anyone to take you seriously, are you two years old? No, you're 38.

If you can't bring yourself to call yourself your real, grown up name (Christine, etc.), would you at least please go by the slightly more respectable Christy? I'm embarrassed for you.

[quote]"Jamie" is a child's name, not a name for a man.

I changed mine to "Jame". Now I'd fuck me.

by Anonymousreply 2507/30/2013

I never liked the name Melissa. It's too prissy sounding.

by Anonymousreply 2607/30/2013

I do like the name "Holland." Like "Holland Taylor," that's an unusual name, but more people should name their daughters that.

by Anonymousreply 2707/30/2013

When I taught elementary school music, I had a kindergarten class with all of the following:

Tyler, Taylor, Tanner, Trevor, Kaylie, Keeley, Kylie, Katie and Caitlin.

No lie. Drove me batshit crazy.

"I said, 'I associate that name with the children of my older sister's friend.'"

Not like that you didn't. Normal people don't talk like that.
