Mine must be:

Rufus (never liked the name)
Jonathan (personal hate 🤷‍♀️)
Marcus (reminds me of mucus)

Brianne (annoying name)
Kim (Kim Jong-Un, Kim Kardashian...)
Regina (Mean Girls)
Karen (stupid Mean Girl)
Rachel (bit plain and Rachel Green)

I'm trying to be open minded but when my husband suggest Cole because we're Welsh (and I know it's not even spelt the right way).... I gave up grin

My husband suggested Beverly for a girl.

Atlas for a boy hmm

@funkt Karen? You never see a baby called Karen. It is a rank you earn!

Yeahnahyeah1 Fri 18-Oct-19 07:26:11

Briony, Erica and Hannah. I hate them all 🤦🏼‍♀️

My ex liked Kendrick for a boy... there was absolutely no way it was ever going to happen confused
My dad wanted to call me Zeus (pronounced zee-us grin) or blade, I'm so happy I was born a girl and given a slightly more conventional name.

@Sforsh49 precisely. A Karen is a specific type of person, and anybody named that will always be that type of person. I felt like I didn't need that type of person embodied as a three year old.

We are British and Polish. Our surname is long and Polish. He seriously wanted to call ds2 Ramirez. Did not understand my refusal to consider it.

SpringFan Fri 18-Oct-19 08:51:36

Not a name hate, but my DH suggested that Cameron or Alaister were too Scottish sounding and then suggested Andrew! Could not worked out why I laughed.
(NB. His dad was from Northumberland and he has a Scots surname)

I really took against it. I've only ever met one Carl, and whilst I felt no rapport there was nothing about him that creeped me out. But when dh suggested this (in 1993) I was just Ain't Happening.

Naomimi Fri 18-Oct-19 09:34:47


All lovely but way too much with our long surname!

Magicmama92 Fri 18-Oct-19 11:36:39

My partner suggest bo for our little girl.
No thanks.

I dont really like names like north apple etc I'm more of a normal or old fashioned name person haha. For me its finding names that dont remind you of people you dont like as well if you bullied by a james it does put you off that name.

ChrisPrattsFace Fri 18-Oct-19 11:38:19

DH really loved Wayne. Actually hate the name, my accent and they way it comes out is just horrific!

OhMsBeliever Fri 18-Oct-19 11:41:30

My now ex insisted that if we ever had a girl she'd be called Jocelyn.

No. And no again.

I told him in my mind it was a posh mans name not a cute baby girls name but he wouldn't have it. (Sorry to anyone with a girl Jocelyn)

Luckily we had boys so I never faced having to outright refuse it.

DH likes Giles/Gyles and doesn't think it's in the least bit posh!
