Baby Names You Can't Stand *Flame Free Zone*

Everyone has heard a baby name that made them say, "Are you kidding me???"  So lets hear them, and no b!tching if someone hates your baby's name, granny's name, etc.

I'll start...I my best friend named her little girl Crea (pronounced cr-ee-uh)...I don't understand how that can even be a name. It sounds like sea food seasoning!

Re: Baby Names You Can't Stand *Flame Free Zone*

  • I used to hear some bad ones while cashiering during college.  The worst that I can remember were Daytona and Felanie Marie (pronounced like Felony...).  During my teaching days I had a boy in my class called Jay'd, which I thought was pretty bad (nice kid, though).

    Among names that I actually hear used a lot on baby boards...  I can't stand anything that rhymes with Aiden.  Jayden, Brayden, whatever - all of them get on my nerves.

  • One of my good friends just informed me they are naming their baby girl Rinoa Onyx Ann. I'm sorry....but WHAT?? Not to mention, her last name is already a bit funny sounding! lol?

  • I really hate Nevaeh.  It looks and sounds really gross to me, and the fact that it's "heaven" backwards is downright cheesy.

    A lady I know just had a daughter and named her Rinoa!  I'd never heard it before, but supposedly it's a video game character...I really disliked it.

    I can't understand why anyone would name their kid Felanie. And I don't like it when kids are named after places, Daytona, Orlando, etc.

  • One of my husband's high school friends just named her January baby, i kid you not "January Jane"

    Her excuse was "well we're going to call her Jane", then why the hell would you make her first name January? Can you say grade school trauma waiting to happen?

  • There was a girl that went to school with DH. Her name was LA-A.  Pronounced "Lah-dash-a".  

    no lie.

     

    what my huge peeve is, is when parents obviously hate their children and massacre spellings with Ks instead of Cs, Ys instead of Es, etc.

    This.

    I also don't like made up names or names with random Ys in the middle of them.

  • I hate any common name that someone tries to make "special" by giving it a unique spelling.  It doesn't matter if you spell Fred normal or Phred- when you call your kid to come inside for dinner it all sounds the same to the neighbors.  All you are doing is making life harder for your child and for their teachers.  Where I worked they are now requesting that parents spell each child's name phonetically on registration forms because we couldn't figure them out.  It's dumb.

  • Hoping to god that I don't have some crazy friends that would be lurking here.... :)

    One of my friends that is pregnant (due any day now) is naming her son Bentley. Like the car. Yeah.

    Another friend of mine had a little girl a little over a year ago and they named her Paisley. Like the pattern....or like Brad Paisley-I don't know. Either way.

     

  • I really don't like any of the trendy/cutesy names. I know it's not that uncommon of a flame, but they just all really bug me. Grace, Sophie, Ellie, Ella, Jackson, Bryson, Weston, Caleb etc...

    I also hate all the 'K' girl names. Keelyn, Kaelyn, Kelee, Kaiya, Kenzie...etc....

    (hope I didn't offend anyone, if I did, I'm sorry)

    Edit because I remembered some bad ones: I have a student(a boy)- Keadyn, and another one -An'Toniyeon.

    I also know a girl who names her daughter: Edna Story. Why 'Story'? because both mom and dad like to read!!!

  • Before I got pregnant I might have liked the name Paisley...but idk...now that I'm responsible for choosing the name a person will have to live with for the rest of their life (or at least until 18) I find overly cutesy names make me wanna barf sparkles and confetti.

    A video game character?? Lol. That is insane!

    Honestly, why in the world would you name your daughter after a video game character? I just can't understand some people! lol.

    Me neither! Which is why I'm pretty dumbfounded that I'm naming mine Georgia! Indifferent

    I knew a kid named December. Her birthday wasn't in December, I have no idea why they named her that.

    I can't believe someone else has seen that name! Our office had a client with that name, and we all laughed about it for months.  We hear a lot of crazy names in our office but that one definitely won the prize. We still laugh about it.

     I've discovered I like traditional, classical, "boring" names. All these new modern names with weird spellings just seem odd and confusing, and I feel bad for some of these kids when they hit school age.

     Hehe-I wanted to barf when they talked about her on facebook all the time before she was born. Maybe if she had a different name it wouldn't have bothered me so much.

    This is a kind of hypocritical thing for me to say because most places are named after actual historical figures names...

    This. Made me crack up. Haha.

    Before we knew we were having a boy, I was thinking of the name "Evelynn" for a girl. But I had always HATED the name! lol. I just thought it fit or something for some reason! haha. So I kind of understand!?

    Is that the name of the chick from Avatar? Or it's similar to that isn't it?

    This name reminds me of the woman from "Fried Green Tomotoes"

  • I have a friend who is naming her daughter Swell Franklynn.


    When asked, she said "You know... like the perfet swell? Like surfing!"

    She doesn't surf. 

    I can't help but think of swelling/inflammation or "gee, isn't that swell?!"

     

    Poor kid. I don't like names that aren't real names, just words turned into names.

  • A few people I know around here have named there sons Maxwell, I don't know why, but that name makes me cringe.

    Also, I know someone who named their daughter Sage Osprey Mave, I mean Sage I can see, but where t H did they get the rest of that?

     

    ETA: Mave is not the last name.


  • Anything *super* popular.

    I always think the only reason anyone names their child a popular, trendy name is because they've heard it so much that they just jump on board.
