Have to agree with R1 - many older English first names just turn me off.

Nigel, Clive, Alfie, Graham, Simon - I believe many of these are now 'old-timey' names. Not sure how many are named this now, but these are distinctly UK names that no one (perhaps some Simons) in the States would have.

I don't know anyone in the States who find these names appealing.

Oh - and Gareth! Blech.

Not saying we haven't fucked things up in the States with the Aiden, Kaden, Jaden bullshit.

I'm pretty tolerant of given names in general, but I despise the name Basil. I had a lengthy fling with a guy by that name and ended up despising him. (I could write a book about his attitudes and antics.) I ended up hating the name.

As a teacher I get to see the fashions in names come and go, as well as piling up a long list of names that I just can't stand after dealing with one (or two, or three, or...).

Growing up, I loved the name Nicholas, and thought if I ever had a son I would name him that. Now I cannot stand the name. Same with Patrick. Every Nick and Pat I've ever met has been a real little shit. The worst names however, for me, are the Old Testament abominations: Noah, Zachariah, Jedediah, Obediah, etc. Also high up on the list are David, Kieran (any spelling), Todd, and Angel.

And since I'm venting, I fully expect to have a student named Covid before I retire. Don't scoff -I've already had a Cocaine, Urine, and Parentheses (actual legal names, I kid you not).

Beware of anyone with an overly aggressive biblical name like ^Micah^ , Josiah or Caleb. They or their parents tend to be religious nut cases. But, if they're Pennsylvania Dutch / Deutsch, its probably OK and they will be hot and great in bed once they learn the ropes.

I find both Jesus and Mohammed unnecessary. It seems they should be sacrilegious, especially Mohammed, a religion that doesn’t even allow a visual representation of him, but sure name every boy in your family that name. I saw this all the time in Brooklyn and Queens, every boy in the family named Mohammed for fucks sake. How is any even a half religious girl going to feel OK getting fucked by these guys, let alone a devout one which they are looking for? Do the Hindu name their kids after gods, I guess when they’re polytheistic it uses up a lot more names. I heard of guys called Ganesh, but I think as a nickname. Do the Jehovah’s name their kids that? Probably quite a few Scientologist have named their kids Ron, David or Tom I bet.

R79 funny this should come up. I’m trying to choose a different middle name, and one of the top three choices is the word my Pagan path has for the Underworld :)

This is partly because I want to walk around the Normies and the Abrahamics as a walking emissary of everything they fear (you know, as well as being gay), and also I just like how it sounds and how it looks written down.

Laurence

Oliver (especially when Ollie)

Shawn (spelled this way, no comment on Sean/n)

Jonathan/John (especially when Johnny)

George

Pascal

Nicholas (only sometimes when Nick)

Benjamin (especially when Ben)

I don’t want a kid, but if I did by some freak hand of Fate end up having a son, I’d name him something like Marmaduke or Beauregard or Harrington instead of any of these boring-ass Christian names. Just so, if they turned out to be a shithead, at least they’d be a uniquely memorable and posh shithead.

I co-sign, R9. However, I don't mind Aidan/Aiden. It's an old name. The similar-sounding ones that came later suck, including Braden and Caden.

Never liked last names used as first names: Colby, Anderson, Clayton, Wentworth, Kennedy, Carter, Hudson. They sound pretentious. Even worse are parents who name their son King, Prince, Duke, Marquis, Thane, or Baron.
