1. Nevaeh (this one goes without saying, though)
3. Jaxon or, (dear god), Jaxxon. I can live with Jackson but I'm not wild about it.
4. -lyn smooshes. Gracelyn, Ashlyn, etc.
5. Any -son names on girls. But especially Addison. (YES to jem's comment that this is a "disease, not a name. And even if it were a 6. name, it should be a boy's name" LOL! So true.)
6. Any Mac- or Mc- names, especially on girls. Oddly enough, I do like just plain Mack (for a boy, obv.)
7. Emerson, for either gender, but especially girls
8. Names that are blatantly inspired by celebrities and were not at all popular before them, i.e., you're basically naming your kid after them or their kid. Especially the Angelina kids—Maddox, Knox, etc.
9. Bentley. Fits previous criteria but also, ew. Any brand names.
10. Occupation names for an occupation that really isn't an occupation nor anything someone should be named after. Carter? Cooper? Seriously?
Ughh... soo many more I could list.Two pink lines means we're now planning and not just dreaming of names! First babe, due 4/17.
Mattias Leo, Leander James, Joakim Rhys, Macsen George

1. Word names. I absolutely loathe Poet, Story, Princess and other "names" like them. There are better names, which are real names.
2. Gender switches. The biggest mystery for me. Finley and Darcy are fine on either gender, but James for girls and Phaedra for boys are just horrible.
3. Old man names. Ruth, Josephine, Willa, Mabel, Millicent, Gertrude, Bertha, Ernest, Clarence, Herbert, Graham. Especially Wilfred and Winnifred. All sound so dated and unpleasant.
4. Everything too cutesy: Mimi, Johnnie, Rosie, Freddie, Frankie. Who would take seriously on kids with these names??
5. Elizabeth and Charlotte
6. Kreighatyvve spellings. It hurts my eyes.
7. Made-up names like Nevaeh, Ashlynn, Emmaleigh, Zayden. I don't feel like to explain why I hate them.
8. Names that sound like money and are meant to show "the child's awesomeness": Diamond, Lux, Cash, Precious, Princess, Angel.
9. P-names like Piper, Paige, Poppy, Peyton, Paisley. Detest them.
10. Occupational names and surname names like Sailor (especially on a girl), Harper, Stewart, Hudson, Wilson, Jones, Baker, Parker, and, again, Piper.

3. Kaleigh/Kaylie/Kayley/Kailee/Kaylee/Caylee/Kailie/Cailie (you get the point)
4. Maeby - seen this on Nameberry and I just think it sounds ridiculous
5. Devon (for a girl)

7. Sophia - because it's what EVERYONE is naming their babies
8. Anything with an apostrophe in it
9. Justin - ick

1. Emerson for a girl. It's a name I want to use for one of my sons and every time I hear of a new baby girl with the name, I cringe.
2. Grace as a middle name. It's the most popular middle name for a little girl in my area and I'm just over hearing it.
3. Blaiden. (Know a little boy with this name)
4. Robert. I absolutely hate this name. (The bad associations don't help, but still.)
5. I'm also really over hearing Bentley.
6. All of the spellings of Aaliyah.
7. The names inspired by country singers. Easton, Brantley, etc.
9. Addison/Addie and all of their spellings. It's not a BAD name... I'm just tired of seeing so many of them.
10. And finally, Charlie. This name is annoying to me for an odd reason... I can't decide if I like it, and I can't decide if I like it on a boy or a girl. First, I met a girl named Charleigh. Hated the spelling, but the name for a girl grew on me. Then I met a little boy named Charlie, and it suited him, but at that point it was made feminine for me by the first Charleigh. Then, I met a little girl named Charlee. And I liked the spelling, and it suited her too. Lol, so I told that story to say, that this name annoys me personally because I simply can't figure out how I like it, and what gender I like it for.18 | Name lover | No babies, just planning.
