@oneofthesethings:  

 

My little brothers name is Brayden. My family is far from trashy thank you. It’s just names that got way to trendy. There’s no need to sit and say they’re trashy names and only trashy people use them. My parents make 6 figures together and have a beautiful home and a fancy boat… and are far from trash. Your parents should have raised you with more class then to be so rude!

Poor Bees commenting on here who are too un-classy themselves that they have to trash names because they don’t like them. This thread makes me furious.

@gpsp2B:  I agree. A kid can’t help what they are named, and just because you like a certain name doesn’t make you a trashy person. Yeesh, the judgement!

I like the name Aidan.  My Brother and SIL must LOVE the variations since I have a nephew named Kadan (6) as well as a nephew  named Jayden (4).

@MrsPanda99:  

I can even go as far as to say that the reasoning behind is probably the fact that younger moms tend to follow name trends MAYBE, and they want to think teen moms or young moms are trashy. But to blatantly say that to a forum of moms naming children, you ought to be ashamed.

And yes I’m going to be a young mom (due in December) I’m not naming my child any of these, though I do have a brother named Brayden as I stated. Even still, to sit and call names trashy and unclassy… IS UNCLASSY.

@MrsPanda99:  Me too, but man does it get confusing.  I tried to talk my brother and SIL out of naming their two boys such similar names-but no dice.

Even though they are “trendy,” I wouldn’t bat an eye at someone named these because they are pretty normal IMO, as long as the spelling isn’t too butchered. I have seen a lot of names go around here on WB that people rave about because they are so “unique” and not trendy–and honestly, I laugh at a lot of them and feel bad for the poor kids if they actually end up getting named some of them, but I would never say that to someone, different strokes for different folks!  Bottom line–who gives a crap about what other people name their kids, why do so many people on here get so uptight about this? If you like a name, WHO CARES what other people think! If you don’t like a name, then you don’t have to name your kid that, sounds pretty simple to me! Honestly, we picked our son’s name because we liked how it sounded, a lot of people probably do this, too, and don’t think about some of the ridiculous criteria I’ve seen some people say they have for picking a name on here.

I LOVED the Aiden name about… 5 years ago. Then, after John and Kate premiered, it was EVERYWHERE.

@gpsp2B:  I agree! I know kids called Hayden, Aiden and Brayden (not in the same family!). I didn’t use the names myself but still I don’t mind them on others. One was a friend of my daughter’s when they were little, and he was a real cutie. If you don’t like a name then don’t use it, but don’t judge others.

I think there’s no such thing as a trashy name. And I think it’s very poor to be mocking names, because there’s nothing the child can do about it.

@LadyMoriarty:  Wow, a bit judgemental much??  My son has one of those names, but not spelled with a “y” and I assure you I did not or was not hoping for a girl.

As for socio-economic status?  I’m a lawyer and my ex is a doctor.

If you dislike a name, you dislike a name.  Not a big deal.  Don’t judge people for it.  There are plenty of names that I dislike, but I don’t fault their parents for it (unless it’s something completely absurd like Paper Clip Jones or similar).

@KCKnd2:  +1 This

 

I used to like Aidan, when it was an Irish name, but now it’s become overused and all the variants are ridiculous! Can you imagine, there are like 22 kids in a classroom and 14 of their names rhyme?

Yikes, guys… lots of negative groupthink going on here. It’s an over-popularity issue more than a ‘low class’ or ‘bad taste’ one. Notice how everyone is now naming their kids traditional names because they’re bored of the tryndy and yooneek ones? In 5-10 years, we’ll all be sick to death of those too. Doesn’t mean they’re horrible names or intrinsically trashy, it just means that trends come and go, like skinny jeans, and the -aiden names are definitely on the ‘go’ end.
