I actually met someone the other day named Ta-a. Pronounced Ta-dash-a. I first read it and was like Taa? haha.
And my mom worked in a hospital when I was little and a lady there DID name her twins Orangejello and Lemonjello. Pronounced Oranjelo and Lemanjelo.

@secondchances: I feel bad for little Homer. Poor thing’s going to get picked on an awful lot (so are her siblings, unfortunately). I’m in the camp of “Get a pet if you wanna name bomb another living thing”

I don’t hate them, but I just feel tired when I think of all the Aiden’s, Brayden’s, Hayden’s, and McKayla’s, McKenzie’s, out there.

I once met a kid named Rage… and another named Peach (legally Peach– I guess it’s like Apple).

I just can’t understand (or even justify!!) anyone naming their child Dick… And I do mean Dick as the name, not short for Richard… Its not that the name is ugly.. but come on ! No matter how you try to make it sound, it is still gonna mean Dick !!

Kayden or Kadence (any spelling version) just can’t stand this name. It’s so “trendy”

@Robin_Sparkles: I’m with you- I don’t think they are all just urban legends. There was a child named Shithead where I worked last year.

So A) wow, was very surprised this thread was revived again, and B) after reading through it again I feel the need to clarify, because I didn’t when I first posted it, that this list wasn’t an author’s opinion on the names SHE hates the most. She and her team apparently went into tons of different websites, chat rooms and forums to get a general (internet) opinion of the names people didn’t like, then compiled them. Maybe not the most scientific way to go about gathering data, but she felt it gave them a good cross-section of public opinion.

I won’t name any specific names I don’t like because I don’t want to hurt feelings, but I hate names that are adorable for a baby but are ALWAYS a baby or child sounding name. I can’t imagine my future daughter or son commanding a boardroom (or writing a book, or whatever profession they choose) and introducing themselves with a little bunny foo-foo cutesy name.

@Grizz: Exactly! What makes you think that giving your child a tacky name will be something they appreciate?

Out of my facebook friends with babies-the most common names are: Bella (Isabelle or Isabella), Emma, and Olivia. i don’t hate these names by any means, but at this point if you name your daughter any of these she is going to be the Jennifer of the 80’s and 90’s.
