    I've *always* disliked names like Chastity, Hope, Faith, Destiny...etc. I don't know why, lol.

    I totally agree with you. I got in trouble with someone because I'm not crazy about the name "Alice" due to a rocky relationship with my step-mother. Everyone has name preferences and it is not in any way meant to slam the people with that name, or those who named those people.

    I also love traditional names! I can't stand the names that sound as though the parents grabbed random syllables out of a hat! That poor child would be spelling that name for life. Also girls' names that end in "sha" sounds. Not super pleasant to me. At the end of the day, I always judge a person based on his/her personality and behavior, on who they are, rather than their name. As the bard wrote, "What's in a name?".

    I hate the name Viola!

    At soft lay last week a little girl named Viola pushed my boy over..... thats not why I hate the name, but it certainly adds to it.

    I just don't like when people drastically change the spelling of names to make them more unique, or prettier, or whatever. Ex. changing Madison to Madysyn.
    A pet peeve of mine is the name Jaxson. It's a really nice name and I like it a lot, but I really don't like that spelling. If you have the 'X', you don't need the 'S', know what I mean? So it should be Jaxon. But like I said, I really like the name itself.

    I cannot stand the name piper!!! I don't like boys names that sound like they r made up, girls can usually get away with it but I don't think Boys can. I hate the name Cody! Not many other names I really don't like though! I love traditional names. Bugs me when people try so hard to find a name that no1 else will have that it just sounds daft! :)

    After working in the prison system I can tell you that Jason's are totally over represented in there. I see Quinn is increasing in popularity, especially for girls but I always read it as Quim when hand written. I am not fond of names that are long and complex and I think you can get away with less known names if they are one or two syllables.

    I find myself gravitating towards less traditional names for boys and older names for girls! I hate most of the traditional names for boys because they are SO overused. I like names that arnt totally popular but not totally out there, like Mckenzie for a boy. But for girls i've been finding myself going to WAY older names, like Trinity and Gwendolynn. I feel like newer girls names are just named after fruit or weird spelling on older names, which bothers me.

    I don't like any of the ones that sound made up either, but in the last 5/6 years they have been a bit of a craze haven't they ... Daegan, Kayden, Hayden, Jayden, (just a few example) I also don't Like Beau for about a year i was reading that as berrrugh (like the noise u make when u are sick) then i found out it means Bow, it is a bit too celebrity for me that one, like apple.
    Also when people try too hard to give their child a middle name for no reason... OR when they want them to have an uber long traditional name and they end up being called Doris Iris matilda smith.

    I'm not fond of Imogen, Neveah, Isla, that weird name that's pronounced "neve", Harper, Harlow, Poppy, Nora, Logan, Spencer, Aaliyah... For boys Harvey, Alistair, Calvin, Jeremiah... I'm picky I suppose.

    So many of these things are dependent on where you're from, it's interesting reading through stuff :)

    I honestly don't think there are any names I don't like. I feel like I wouldn't use some because they're over used now. Like Ella or Kai.
