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

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)

Nothing overtly biblical, like Noah or Josiah or Jonah. They are just yucky to me and I’m an atheist anyway

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.

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.
posted by guest :: 2013-08-18 14:11:33 | report
Anything misspelled or trashy, anything religious or virtue-y, anything teasable.
