Anything that ends in Y.  I am not a fan of first names and last names ending in the same letter…unless it’s a silent E of course!

i loved the name landon, but my FI’s name rhymes with that. Probably easy enough to guess. Then Ryland i love too, but my FI’s sisters kid is named Ryliegh.

And i Love Emma for a girl

I love names that begin with a P, but alas our last name begins with a P and we cannot give a future child the initials PP. So yup, those are all out.

My guess for Artbee’s last name- Brady. Was that a popular 90’s show? I recall watching it but maybe they were repeats by the time I was growing up?

I’ve always loved Irish names, but DH’s last name is very typically Jewish, and I just can’t see sending out invitations to the bar mitzvah of little Seamus Silverstein or something like that.

Ah, yes. I had always loved the name Madelyn nn Mady…FI’s last name is M__sey. Yeah. Oh well. Lol.

Also, love the name Elizabeth and Fiance dated an Elizabeth. :/ Also like Bridget….bitchy co-worker killed my love of that name. *sigh*

As far as boy names, I haven’t been heartbroken over not being able to use one UNLESS an “ex-friend” of mine uses the name I love. Just can’t bring myself to do it. She’s a b*tch. Lol.

@mightywombat: Sadly you’re right, although I do enjoy hearing the guesses! It’s fun thinking about all the old tv shows!

I always wanted to name a daughter Mary ___ (insert shortened version of middle name, such as Jo), but, at the end of the day, her first and last name would rhyme.  No bueno.

And since I’m a teacher, I have a slew of names that won’t be touched…luckily, I didn’t like most of them to begin with.

For one, I now have a super popular last name and it just so happens that my favorite two first names would give my kids the same name as a popular female singer and a famous runner.

Two, I am not a big fan of alliteration names and so all of the names that start with the letter “J” are out.

Three, both husband and I have names that start with an “R” so those names are out too, because I don’t want to start that trend with kids and then have to decide to follow or break it.

My Fiance loves the name Victoria and I am not a fan, so that is vetoed.

I love the name Chandler for a girl but Fiance hates it so that’s out.

And I love my last name as a first name should we have a boy, I thought it would be cool since I’m giving up my last name when I get married.  BUT our friends just named their baby boy this so it’s a no go

@2PeasinaPod: OMG my husband loves that exact name too! I can’t stand it either and just imagine the kid getting picked on.

Kayden-My sister wants to use it and will probably use it before me since she is older and my cousin used it for his sons name.

Tradition in my family is to name the first born over a family member so you have everyone telling you what to name your kid and how you can’t name it a certain name because he was a bad person in our family(big family).

I loved the name Jackson for a boy, but one of FI’s relatives used it way back while we were just dating, and I feel like at this point I *could* use it, but shouldn’t…. especially since the middle name is also the same as I would have used (FI’s first name) 

I also can’t really use most names that end in A- My new last name is Amore, and my first name ends in A, so I have to pause in between the two names or it all just sounds like one word…. 

Which is a total bummer, b/c I love some A-ending names…. Dhalia, Ezra, Amelia…. Fiance actually really likes the sound of Amelia Amore, but I think it’s WAY too rhyme-y.

@Ree723: I feel ya!  Luckily, most of my terrors have had names I didn’t care for to begin with.  Sadly, one of my favorite names is on the “no list” because of a parent…yes, it was THAT bad…
