    I know someone who has a girl and names her Nathaniel, and a boy and named him Nathan. NOW THAT is lazy.

    I dont like names such as,
    Chanel, McKennzie, Chantelle, Boyd, Mitchell. I hate them and. First names that are surnames ie McKennzie or named after a brand like CoCo,screams chav to me, even If these childern are brought up on the poshest estate, going tothe best schools, with a name like Chanel it dosen't work iykwim.

    I think if it sounds 'clunky', it doesn't work. Gracelynn sounds like an actual name and not made up, if that makes sense. :)

    Here's my list :lol: I'm pretty picky

    Girls:
    Nevaeh
    Chasity
    Heaven
    Angel
    Mackenzie/Mckenzie
    Makayla (every Makayla/Mikaela spells it differently)
    Kenley/Kinley

    Boys:
    Aiden/Jayden/Kayden
    Kamden

    -names that have a 'y' or a 'k' when it should be a 'c' or an 'i' like Khloe or Maysie
    -names that have a creative spelling
    -phonetic spellings eg Jaxson instead of Jackson
    -hyphenated names eg Lily-May

    One of my dogs name is Atlas and I cannot stand him. -_-

    I see people say they dont like "unique" names, but I really can't stand run of the mill names hahaha. Every time I see a "classic" name I think, boy couldn't their parents think of ANYthing else? Like my husbands name, Michael. How boring. What like 5/10 men are named Michael? (obviously not but there are SOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOO OOOO many of them it's just ridiculous).

    My LO's middle name is Michael, but it's his grandad's name. I totally see your point though, no way would I use it for a forename!

    Fed up of hearing pseudo-posh people shouting on 'poppy' and 'orla'. Poppy sounds like a smaLl dog to me :/ also the name 'struan' I can't stand, even the sound of it sounds horrible!

    I feel kind of guilty because I'm sure there are some perfectly sweet women out there with this name, but I know so many Sarah's who are not nice people. So, the only name I say "Absolutely no" to is Sarah.

    My daughter is called Isla...haven't seen this crop up yet on here. :)

    I dislike nanes like destiny, chardonay, chanel etc...but there are loads that I wouldnt name my baby...infact we are really struggling.

    If Isla had been a boy she would have been called Caelan (Scottish name, my late grandma picked out for me if I had been a boy)

    I'm terrible in that I really don't like very many names at all... The really popular ones irk me because I hear them everywhere, the chavvy ones irk me because they make my skin crawl, I don't like Americanised names eg, Jaxson, '-ayden' etc.
    My poor child will probably end up with some strange, obscure name just because I'm so picky :haha:
    Thankfully there are quite a lot of Hebrew, Welsh, Irish and French names I *do* like (-small mercies!).

    Worst name I have ever heard was a child I worked with called Klamidia (pronounced like the STI, chlamydia). I was so flabbergasted to hear an infant called it, I asked the mum what inspired the name and she said: "Oh, I heard it somewhere and thought it sounded nice". :rofl:

    I also met a child called L-A who all the teachers were calling LA (like the city) when the child's mum came into the school and told everyone the child's name was pronounced Luh-dash-a, not LA! :nope:
