Im with you on the hayden, jayden, jaylynn... I too cannot stand when parents mispell names trying to be different.
I have a cousin who named her child Chloe, but spelled kloi. She gets called "kloy". AH!
For my youth I hated my own name. Im over that now though!
I dislike the name Jason, simply because Ive only met Jason's that were disagreeable people.
I don't think i dare tell anyone my names iv got picked
out for this baby people probs say something bad
about them both but spose its each to there own
i just get put off by others opinions haha glad im keeping
them quite till 20 weeks or even birth
There's no name that I really HATE.....but I do find that some people "ruin" names for me. Like, I'll never name my child Tara because I know a Tara who is a total nut job....I'll never name my child Brandon because that was the name of my first boyfriend....I'll never name my child Jason because all the Jason's I know are slimy characters....LOL
Love how I come back to this thread to see I've been called ignorant for not liking Irish names!
I just don't like the names, I don't like the spelling.. how ignorant of me.
You're perfectly entitled to not like Irish names! The point was, you called the spelling and pronunciation ridiculous. It is not ridiculous as the names are in Irish, not English, and it is not the names fault they are used outside of Ireland. They make perfect sense...in IRISH. It comes across badly. I doubt you would say the same thing about other ethnic names. There is a difference in saying 'I think that's an ugly name, I'd NEVER use it' and what you said. I was not alone in finding issue with your post by the way, a good few others had the same point as me.
Nobody is saying you can't say you don't like the names, and obviously yes they would be difficult outside of Ireland. But blasting them for their spelling and pronunciation because they are in a different language IS ignorant.
