I agree with most of the names previously mentioned and my biggest cringe names are Chloe. To me, (and I know this doesn't apply to every Chloe) Chloe is a mean name. Because of my work with camps and drama I know at least one Chloe in each grade between pre-k through 12 (I guess it really tool off in my area) and every one I have met has been a lot less than kind to both me and other kids or actors. I apologize to anyone who likes or has a Chloe.

Soo many names make me cringe.
Cooper- reminds me of people catching chickens
Ryker- I just don't see the appeal
Sophia- it's gorgeous but so overused I can't stand it
Grady/Brady- the sound, yuck!
Jedediah- I want to like it but it sounds like someone is stuttering
Phoenix- don't know why.
Marley- all I can think of is Bob
Blaise/Blaze- "to blaze" is to smoke weed where I'm from
Zoe- My name is Zoie, and idk why I just can't stand hearing it.
Braxton- like the hicks? The sound isn't nice either.
Jackson- I guess the harsh x sound in this and Braxton bug me
Leonard- It looks ugly. One letter off from leotard. Or leopard.
Paisley- it just doesn't sound nice
Poppy- it's way too nicknamey.

Addison, etc. (the letters SON = boy. Changing the spelling to Addisyn doesn't help. It still means Adam's son)
Amity - just reminds me of Amityville Horror *shiver*
Braxton (I totally agree with pp. We feel Braxton Hicks contractions for months, and that's what you want to name your precious little one?)
Frank *Double Shiver*
Geoffrey - why this one gets to me, but Jeffrey is somewhat acceptable, I'll never know

Just goes to show how low my expectations are, I suppose. Thank goodness it's not actually a name though. Phew!
