’Avoidable’ vs. names
What names would you avoid EVER giving a child? Mine would probably be Kane/Cain, Courtney, Summer, Chelsea, Caleb, Vernon or word names such as Destiny, Poetry or Star. What are yours?
The Top Baby Name is...
Brody, Brady etc
William and Charlotte
I agree on all of those names! Especially Cain, Cain was evil in the bible I would never want to give that legacy to my child! Eek!
I would also avoid names that were popular when I was growing up like Jessica, Jennifer, Jason, Justin ect.
World names are a no for me.Hope, Faith etc just annoy me. If I meet someone I dislike, it usually puts me off the name too. Alex is therefore a no no, even though I liked the name before
Ava, Emily, Emma, Madison, Isabella, Aidan, Jacob, John.
Old fashioned names:
Elizabeth, Victoria, Evangeline, Ann, Jane, Imogen, Benjamin, Joseph, Malachi, Joe, Gary.
I agree with poster four, I once met a really irritating Alex who put me off the name
Names I dislike:
Ava, Bernard, Mckenzie, Kendall, Mason, Parker, place names which don’t sound like names at all, and also Sawyer, which I know is popular but it just reminds me of soy sauce and soya milk..
Adolph, Josef or Jesus (Jesus didn’t do anything bad, but naming your child that is asking for teasing)
I would never name a child Isaac Elliott to me it sounds like I suck idiot.
Holly/Molly and similar, names with Belle/bella, Anne, Marie, Elizabeth, Missy and similar, old fashioned names, bible names.
Nothing overtly biblical, like Noah or Josiah or Jonah. They are just yucky to me and I’m an atheist anyway
Demen (girl), Deluxion, Sultana, Dylan (for a girl), Japanese names for non Japanese people and Godpower (yes, I actually met someone with this name)
I like Caleb. I dislike Jacob, William, Hunter, Tanner, Chase, Scarlett, Violet, Hailey, Kaylee, Ainsley and any Mc/Mac names. I don’t care for names that have million of spellings like Jaden/Jaiden/Jayden/Jadon. I don’t like boy names on girls.
I would never name a child Sophia that name is so popular to me it seems that all people that name their kids Sophia don’t even think about it it’s like oh it’s a girl whatever lets name her Sophia
I have always hated Mackenzie (or any other boy name) on a girl. I have never understood why it’s so common when it’s so ugly and masculine.
Names which should begin with c, yet people decide to spell them.with a k
Names with Y instead of I
Z instead of S etc
Any boys name on a girl, or anything too popular.
I agree with many of them above - no boy’s names on girls, nothing overtly biblical or religious (atheist here too), Jaden, etc., word names (Faith, Destiny), nothing that has 6 spellings, Mc-anything, names with weird "y"s or misspellings.
Anything misspelled or trashy, anything religious or virtue-y, anything teasable.
