First born is due in Dec (gender not known) and dh and I are pondering over names and he's suggested a few now that I absolutely hate - only because I know or knew somebody with that name and they were complete and utter shit heads!

They were every day names, nothing daft like Apple or Tiger Lilly but once associated with a past prize twat!! I go right off it!

Anyone else had this?

Yep. I've always always always wanted a son with a certain name. (After a dear friend who died when we were teens)
Ex vetoed it straight off as the boy he knew with that name "was a twat". sad

Claire- 2 horrid girls I knew had this name have completely ruined it for me.

Harry/Hermione - Harry fucking Potter

Brian/Bruce/Brody, they're just awful names, sorry to anyone with these names

Elena- Very whiny character from the Vampire Diaries

Double barrelled names where the first name ends in y or ie and the second bit is may/mae.

Karen - horrid bully in school.
Oscar and Pierce - such harsh sounds.

Love the name Bruce. Dont know any but i think its cool. Rex and Bruce. (Ponders). V different from Brian!

I dont like sur nam3s on girls.. like spencer or parker or hunter on a girl. V harsh.

Any of the surname type names so Parker, Blake, Bailey......all terrible I'm afraid. Oh and "creative" spellings: Jorja anyone :-(

Can't abide old people names for baby's, Arthur, Sidney , Mavis etc just awful

Strange spellings for simple names, I saw a Dayve go up the credits after a film.

Harris. I wouldn't choose a place name, a surname, or a brand name for a first name and it's all three. That's just my preference. It has unpleasant connotations too. It makes me think of that sex offender Rolf Harris and (in some accents) it sounds like slang for arse. It's just awful.

Human names that are given to pets like Barnaby and Troy. My dsis's friend called her daughter Samantha. My parents have a tortoise with the same name.

ClarenceTheAngel Fri 05-Aug-16 16:38:48

I don't hate the name Karen, but I've never met a nice one! As for Barnaby , my DS announced one day that he was now to be called Barnaby(not his real name ,obs)- heaven knows why!😕

Reminds me when I was younger. A little boy of about 3 who lived a few doors down and about 5 years younger than myself used to come over to play post office and watch my mother wash clothes in an old fashioned twin tub. When we moved to another part of the village he used to wear a ribbon in his hair and insist he was to be called Troysmammy. He must be early 40's now and works in Tesco grin.

Hannah, Emily, Laura, Kirsten- horrid girls at school.
Robert- picked his nose and ate it.

Granny and Grandpa chic names- Stanley and Arthur, Iris and Violet- yuck.

sonlypuppyfat and Raines100 you do realise that old people/Grandparents were babies once.

TroysMammy Fri 05-Aug-16 17:34:13

I've got an Uncle Ronald and an Uncle Malcolm, hard to believe they were babies too but they are in their 80's now.

Mia. I wince whenever I hear it, it just sounds like a noise. Mia. Irrational but I can't beleive its a name.

RaaRaaTheLion Fri 05-Aug-16 17:56:04

Oakley, Blake, Brandon, Levi, Shane, Shaun, Martin, Bernard, Reggie

Chelsea, Charmaine, Lacey, Kiara

ClarenceTheAngel Fri 05-Aug-16 18:10:43

And I REALLY hate the name Keith.

Madbengalmum Fri 05-Aug-16 18:13:05

Jude, everybody seems to be calling their male child this, i cant stand it.

wizzywig Fri 05-Aug-16 18:13:31

grandpa chic?! must remember that one.

Madbengalmum Fri 05-Aug-16 18:14:15

Oh and double names, like ann-marie, lily-jade, you get it.

Seth, Ferris, Fraser (both could be lovely dogs!), American inventiveness (Hunter, Rain, Ocean, Phoenix, Niagara), days/months/seasons (Tuesday, April, Autumn), animals (Fawn, Bunny, Raven, Tiger) and towns (Chester Leicester Kirkenby Dale!)

HoratioNightboy Fri 05-Aug-16 18:25:57

Names with a V in them, especially Veronica, Vanessa and Vivienne. Or a stong "I" sound like Iris. And names with both together are the worst, especially Ivy and Violet. (shudders)
