Thread: Cringe Worthy Girl Names
July 26th, 2013 02:46 AM #67
I don't think threads like this are a good idea. Discussing names you really don't like, or even hate, sure. But saying things like 'it disgusts me' or 'get over yourself' I think are very harsh/personal and just add to the whole mommy war mentality.
I do get it, i just think some comments are a little unnecessarily harsh. I totally have heard names that I though 'really?', but of course would never say to anyone that chose it.
The ones that I've heard used recently that I was really not feeling the love for were:
I also think its interesting how meeting a little baby can occasionally change your view of the name. My cousin named her baby Sloane, which I really thought was awful, but this girl actually wears it with quite the gusto. Its still not something I would pick, but I don't feel as negatively towards it.
Additionally, Clara was used by a friend of mine, and I thought it was a bit dated, and odd. All I could think of was batty Aunt Clara from Bewitched. But now I love the name and would probably consider using it if it wasn't already 'taken'.
