Joshua just makes me shudder

MollyHuaCha Fri 03-Nov-17 20:43:20

It’s all going to end in tears...

DramaAlpaca Fri 03-Nov-17 20:46:15

This thread won't end well, these kinds of thread in Baby Names never do.

KERALA1 Fri 03-Nov-17 20:47:59

Anything in top 10 on grounds of dullness

Waddlingwanda Fri 03-Nov-17 20:50:09

Don’t really hate anything but I’d advise against anything like Fanny, Gaynor or Willy on current times meanings. Seems a bit harsh to use these now

JoanLenin Fri 03-Nov-17 20:52:59

Jasper. It's a dog name.
Jeremy.
Molly, Polly, Poppy, Milly, Daisy or any other cutesy name that to me sounds very Victorian.

I actually don't like her name anymore, either.

I hate anything hyphenated and surnames as first names

stopbeingadramallama Fri 03-Nov-17 21:08:57

Jayden, kayden etc.

Anything -may. Or anything with a ‘-‘ in the middle.

I think Jack, Josh, Ellie, Abbey, Sophie etc.(all very popular names) are very boring.

IggyAce Fri 03-Nov-17 21:13:19

Hate names that are hyphenated, lily-sue, Evie-Lyn, Amy-May, Lilly-Rose and Jeano-james are just a few I've come across recently.

Caulk Fri 03-Nov-17 21:15:00

There was a thread like this quite recently and loads of people ended up flouncing around because their name or their DC name was mentioned. It didn’t end well...

Never ceases to amaze me how wrapped up people get in names . If that’s is all folk have to worry about life must be really tough .
Give your kid a name that doesn’t get them beaten up at school, job done

CherriesInTheSnow Fri 03-Nov-17 21:19:43

I think these threads are a little mean spirited, plus we all know names, like most things, are highly subjective so what's the point, as every single name is going to have people who think it's lovely and some who think it's awful. So genuinely don't see the point in these.

Having said that (!) I don't like Robert at all. Nor Becky.

Or Keith.

EKLInTraining Fri 03-Nov-17 21:20:11

This is the first time my name has been mentioned on one of these threads! I feel like I should win some kind of mumsnet trophy grin

I'm personally not a fan of all the "old lady chic" names that seem to be coming back into style these days.

ThaliaLuxurySpa Fri 03-Nov-17 21:20:44

Let's needlessly upset people, eh?

Odd thread.

confused

MrsPringles Fri 03-Nov-17 21:21:13

Yeah these threads end badly. It’s just petty.

We all like different things and different names. The world would be boring if we were all the same 🤷🏽‍♀️
