I've thought of this topic as the opposite to the favourite baby name a day thread.

So, today I can't stand Brayden and Madison.

  • Interests:I love reading...Romance and fantasy novels mostly, though I do get into some other genres every now and then. I also LOVE music...Mainly older music, but some newer stuff, also. I LOVE the Beatles! They are the greatest! lol. I also love to just drive around in my car...And shopping! When Ihave money, I LOVE to shop!

Today, two names I can't stand are Barney and Hannah...Barney used to scare me as a child and I'm not Hannah Montanna's biggest fan. I swear, I walked into the women's clothes at Wal-Mart and I saw Hannah Montanna merchandise everywhere, so now I can't stand Hannah Montanna. She's taken over our Wal-Mart...lol. The sad thing is, I have a nephew named Barney...

I agree, I do NOT like Hannah one bit. Not only do I know five Hannahs (honestly), but it's only becoming more and more popular with all this Hannah Montana business. Name your kid Montana then! At least that has personality! As for boys, I don't care for Jayden/Kaden/Hayden/Brayden/Aiden. What's next? Maiden? Let's hope not..

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

Today I am very anti Jayden. It's in part to my 18 month old nephew's antics this afternoon. He somehow got out of his crib and into the changing supplies. There was baby powder all over his room. I think my sister needs to seriously invest in a steam cleaner. I can only see issues with spaghetti sauce and mud stains on her "ecru" carpet in her future with this kid.
But in general, I'm not a big fan of the Payton, Peyton, Hayden, and Jayden name craze.
Braden, though, is a different story. I've kind of always liked the name, but not the trendy spellings like Brayden/Bradyn/Braeden/Braiden.

Hopefully nobody reading these has one of the names :unsure:
Or if they do... that they don't take it personally.

I'm not a big fan of the trend of Kayden...Hayden...and Cadence....For boys (especially) It's cute for a kid/baby but imagine being a grown man with the name Kayden or Hayden...NOT cute at all. IMO.

Okay, the names I do not like for girls...
1. Olivia
2. Renee
3. Jayden/Jaden
4. Jordan
5. Jade
6. Or any name paired with mine (Alyssa) that I think doesn't sound too good.
7. Dallas, Austin, Logan, Dylan... I think these are boy names.

The names I do not like for boys...
1. Jordan
2. Girls names for boys
3. Can't think of anymore...

NOTE: I actually like Hayden, Aiden and Kaden. They are wonderful names, the only problem with them is they are very popular.

I hate my name. I know a lot of others have it as well, but I just can't stand it.
I'm naming my children what I want to, not what someone else wants. Ohhh....that makes me mad!

I'm not a fan of Hannah either - it's just too popular right now. I'm not a fan of any of the poular names ending in the -ANNA sound, like Anna, Savannah, Hannah, although I do think Vannah would be a fun name (like Vanna White!).

Boy names on girls!! That is one thing I don't like at all.

  • Interests:LOVE - my family, friends, house, cooking, golfing, being irish, music is so fun, though never have been blessed with anything close to talent. parties, especially pool parties rock! names OF course and nicknames on my children are always enjoyable since there are so many!, having red hair, shopping, tennis, beach.<br />HATE - that my eyesight is getting worse, navigating my way through cities, thinking about ever leaving my town, when people butchered my maiden name(it was straightforward), sticky things, ridiculous prices at our movie theatres, driving(though it's inevitable that i do drive).

Posted 05 May 2008 - 02:11 PM

i agree, there are so many fabulous handsome boys names and then all of a sudden i meet a little girl with one.. i dont like that trend at all. i can't stand the name miley, partially because of the bad role model, but today i just do not like it all that muchh. im not a big fan ofthe name tina, just the name tina, i don't like that much. my stepsister has that name, but i just don't like it really, she doesn't either but its of family importance so thats why she was named it... as for boy's, i don't like jayden, kayden....

I've never liked Tina either, and I don't really know why. I came across a Tilly at the supermarket and I just wanted to grimace. Sure, some of the nicknames I like may be cutesy, and there's nothing wrong with a-nickname-as-a-first-name, but I felt like cringing. Tilly sounds like an old lady's name to me.

Girls:
Nevaeh
Mackenzie
Madison/Addison/Emerson
Cheyenne/Shyanne
Sydney
Paris
Britney/Brittany
Brianna/Breanna
Greer
Blair
Phoebe
Kylie/Riley/Miley/Briley
Kaylee/Hayley/Bailey etc.
Brinley
Patience

Brayden/Cayden/Hayden/Jayden
Hunter
Tanner

Dustin
George
Maddox

Either:
Dakota
Dallas
Riley

I also agree with the boy's names on girls. You wouldn't name a boy a girl's name, so why name a girl a boy's name? Just because you can doesn't mean that you should.

I really can't stand the name Taylor on a girl; Jordan's almost as bad but not quite. For some reason Taylor just bugs me. I think some boyish names are cute on girls (i.e. some days I really like Colby for a girl), but Taylor has never ever appealed to me as a girl's name.

For boys, I really dislike superpopular names. (Gage (seems trendy), the -den's, etc) ... thing is, it seems more traditional boys' names are becoming the "in" thing nowadays. I hope not; I love Henry, Benedict, Chauncey, George, Harrison, Samuel, etc... but I'd hate for them to become the new trend.
