I hate names that sound like strippers -- Destiny, Angel, Nevaeh, Misty, Crystal, Jade.
I dislike Britney, Amber, Tiffany, Shea, Heather (my own name), or anything from the 80s.
I also hate when people give their children names after expensive cars like Bentley, Mercedes, Portia, Lexus. If you can't afford to drive one of those, you shouldn't name your child after them.
I met a guy whose middle name was actually "Christian Dior". He said his mom loved fashion when she was younger. I think his first name was Anthony.
My husband and I think some of the "new age" names sound lower-class, like Madison, Addison, Jayson, Greyson, Brayden, Hayden. We can't stand them!!!

I agree with some of the others--I don't really know how to define it, I just know it when I see it. I know my perception is different from a lot of others', but that doesn't stop me from still having that reaction.
For me, it's a lot of the ones mentioned, plus a lot of made-up names, and Dante. I don't know why. It has the whole literary thing going on, and so many people love it, and I would think I would associate it with culture, but in my area, it's just dripping with downmarket vibes (maybe because I see it spelled Dontae more often than not). It's a fine name for someone else, but I would never suggest it, and I am not sure I could ever see it in a positive light. It's just... downmarket.Lise

Porsche fans, but in general....the only one's that are used are the cars people buy as a status symbol. Lexus? No one who knows about cars would love Lexus enough to name their child that.
I saw a birth announcement in my local paper a couple months back for a little Porsha Carrera.....just like the car, first and middle name, it was horrifying.

Mmmm, interesting. Very hard to define, actually!
Overall, I think names that scream 'My little girl is a pink sugary expensive frilly fluffy princess-wincess' sound cheap. Extra points for silly spelling. Like...Pryncess, Sugar, Chontelle/Cherie/Chanel (actually, most names starting with a soft-Ch), Precious, Krystle, Dior, Tiffany, Angel, etc.
On the next rung down, on the heinous scale, are the names that are just a bit tacky. I'd put things like Madison, McKenna, Bree, Kayla in that category, but that's obviously very subjective.

Overly princessy names on girls, especially with bad spellings, just sound so tacky. In fact, anything with a bad spelling just cheapens it for me. Legit regional variations aren't so bad, like the Polish Krystyna mentioned earlier, but a Khristeenah is just awful and tacky, even though I think the name Christina is gorgeous and classy.
