    I've noticed a recent trend with people splitting up names of two different people and combining them together.

    KayLinda
    Ardysue
    JoyLana

    Hmmm...Not sure why, but it doesn't seem like an appealing idea.

    :shock: Are these real examples?
    My old teacher is called Chris, and his wife, Isobel. Their daughter is Christobel, which I think is quite nice x

    I personally like unique names but not silly unique names, i loathe names like Cash, bentley, fruits as names, colours as names, and holidays and seasons as names, i also have a particular dislike for lizzy :/
    I have friends with unique names and they hate them every little bit and have been bullied, my daughter is lilly-mae, which is now rather common but spelt different to most. But i would never go as extreme as to call her autumn, rainbow, etc.

    on traditional names, i dislike elizabeth, gwendylne, and other no longer comon but not very nice names. xx

    Names I would never use: :nope:

    Names that can be either a boy or a girl: Casey, Morgan, Kelly, Leslie, Whitney, etc.

    Names I don't like for unknown reasons: :shrug:

    Girls: Chloe (can't stand it), Carly, Amber, Ashley, Andrea, April, January, Carissa, Valerie, Celeste, Cheryl, Daphne

    Boys: Jackson, Braxton, Bentley, Jaiden, Jace (NEVER!), Craig, Deacon

    Names I don't like becuase I know someone with that name: :dohh: Miranda, Carolyn (MIL), Chadwick, Vesta, Hannah, Dakota

    And it drives me BONKERS when people name their kids after the mother or father. What, there aren't enough names for you to choose from so you had to recycle? Passing down middle names is great, and even honoring relatives who have passed away is a nice gesture. But I see no reason to have (FIL) Kevin and (BIL) Kevin... Nice way to trip everyone up at the family reunion! :brat:

    I do love that everyone has their own taste in names though-- or it would be a boring world.

    Forgot to add: Heaven, Love, Chastity, and most of all Neveah!

    My husband says he hates names ending in -er (Parker, Harper, Ryder...) because they sound like jobs not names. I don't like George, Cole, breanne, Lauren, aaron. Mostly because I'm a teacher and these seem to be kids that irked me.

    not wanting to offend anyone but i dont like names like... Sam, Ben, tom, Jack... i think they are lovely names but in my opinion they just sound like you have given up and chosen a name that it just that... thats just how i feel and the same for girls names like Sophie, Chloe etc... thats just my opinion... they are nice names i just find them all a bit boring!!
