    What name excuse do you hate the most ?

    What is the one thing people say when they don't like a name, that you cannot stand / hate the most.

    Example : " Your kid will be bullied if you give him/her that name. "

    Mine, would be, " Don't name your kid ____ it's a surname ! "

    James, Tyler, Scott, Harper, Barry, Tracy, Casey, Richard and many others, are surnames as well as first names, should people stop using James and Richard as little boys name? Of course not. It drives me nuts !

    - What excuse that people give when they don't like a name, do you dislike the most?



    ** Just bored and curious

    "Poor child, they'll be bullied because it's so unusual."

    I hear it whenever I tell people what my favorite names are here in Russia, where people are extremely conservative about naming.

    It drives me nuts when someone says "that sounds made up" about a name that isn't "made up." I don't really resent the person saying it, though. I resent all the people who've made up names, thus leading people to expect that anything they haven't heard before is some modern, creative bunk.
    #1 on the way!

    "We changed the spelling so we can be unique!" and "That's way too popular". More the second one, but still. Both make me cringe.

    Hate to break it to you m'dear, but where I live, usually kids with strange and unusual names get picked on (more in the lower grades)! O_o
