    Love Damien, but haven't seen the film so that's maybe why ;). My brother said it was his favourite boys name so just get a nephew called that one day.

    Heard the name 'Deacon' today...Am not a fan.

    My friend's aunty's dog is called Deacon so I don't like it either. It's like Jasper is a dog's name to me too since I've had 2 friends with dogs called Jasper!

    I have to say a pet peeve is double naming; like:

    James Jameson
    Frank Franklin / Franklin Frank
    Donald Donaldson
    Donald O'Donnell
    David Davidson / David Davis

    I worked a city job two years ago doing filing and got to read some really odd names like:

    Prince John
    Obi Wan Kenobi
    Billy Kid
    just to name a few
    (I'm sure some of these were legal name changes, but others, can't be too sure).

    Olivia, Sophia, Teagan (Teegan), Marie (it's such a cop out middle name to me), Heather, Amanda.

    It's really weird because I don't like the names Brianna, Bri, or Breahna (Bree-aw-nuh) etc. But I love my daughters name Brenna (Breh-nuh). They are so similar, but I think Brenna sounds so much more elegant :flow:

    I don't like Alisha either. Firstly because where I'm from it's a rough sounding name where people would over pronounce it Alishaaa :haha: secondly the leesh sound in the middle doesn't appeal to me.

    The title stating 'names you HATE' was a little OTT so I have changed this.

    I have been asked from an undisclosed member:
    For anyone who is wondering the same thing I will explain:

    1. Everyone has names that they personally 'dislike' it's a personal preference and there is no need for anyone to offended someone else doesn't like the same names as yourself. I agree hate is a strong word and as above this has been changed.

    2. Names people like or dislike is not against the forum rules :confused:

    3. I stated:
    This threads doesn't apply

    4. Lastly this thread was started April 2011

    :haha: Nope!

    I didn't know who John Wayne was until recently...my parents kept me in a bubble for too many years, only allowed to like what they liked. I'm getting there though, good friends are putting more pop-culture into my life.

    I think this thread is really interesting. I'm sure my sons name would be disliked more if it were heard more often, doesn't really bother me. Some of my fav girls names have cropped up in this thread more than once, meh. I think you'd have niave to think there wouldn't be people who would strongly dislike your childs name, that's always the case, regardless of what name you choose.

    We knew we were having a girl but when Ruby was born, think OH was tiny bit sad she was not a boy to call Damien (she was born 6th June 2006- 06/06/06)

    hehe.

    So many people either love or hate the name Ruby. I dont get offended if they dont like it because I love it. I guess it just depends how people describe why they hate the name that makes people offended.

    Lucky I am not easily offended because all of my children's names have repeatedly been mentioned in here :rofl:

    Morgan, little boy but isnt at common here. My daughter Naomi-Mae but I honestly dont know any one in RL with a hypenated -Mae name and she is almost seven when most of the one's I see on here are little, so everyone copied me :rofl: Honey I dont think it is chavvy but I think it is especially pretty for a froever baby. Kaysie Blossom and I know people think she should be called Casey but I always read that as CAS-EY not KAY-SEE. And Riley Rae, two names that are boys names used for girls but I wanted a netural name because I had a gut feeling she wouldnt make it home (she would of been Riley Ray if she were a boy) so wanted to bond with 'Riley' rather than 'Bubble' and Ray is my dad's name plus she was meant to be my Ray of sunshine after so many loses.

    Names I dislike is like my uncle he was called Robert Henry but cos my Grandad's name was Robert they used his second name, but then used the nickname Harry for his whole life so much so I thought his name was Harry until he died :rofl: so yeah when their name isnt actually used at all :haha:

    The funny thing is I really disliked my ds1's name before he was born lol

    Oh had suggested it a few times and I had cringed and point blank refused as I knew a horrible person with that name. However, when ds1 was born none of the names on my list suited him and he just looked like an Alex and it felt right lol. Obviously it is now one of my favourite names :)

    I was always told to never trust a Martin too, No idea why, my oh's brother is lovely! (however another one turned out to be not so much) lol

    i guess thats always given me an aversion to that name :wacko:
