What name(s) do you irrationally hate?
886

I'll start.

Denise.

I don't know any Denises... I'm sure they're lovely. But the name just rubs me up the wrong way.

NOTE: No Karen bashing please! Because it's been hijacked as a name and it's not fair on Karens.

Jake and Josh. Both names I loved when I was younger and had on my 'list', but have since been ruined through teaching too many Jake and Josh monsters.

Archie and Alfie. Closely followed by Albert and Arthur. For babies, that is.

I would not call it irrational but others might, but I hate spelling a name not in the traditional way.

It's Jonathan, not Johnathan, it's Holly not Hollie, for example.
