Olive - I just think this is really ugly. I like it's vibes, but I just can't love it. Plus I'm an Olivia, so I just think it sounds too much like a new vintage-y alternative, like parents wanting to use Addison but choosing Adelaide instead just to be ironically 'cooler'.
Eloise - I think it's hideous, really, I do. I know loads of Eloises in the UK.
Gemma - Loads of American people on Nameberry seem to really love this, but in the UK it's dated and dull.
Margo - Granted, this one has been on and off my list a few times. I REALLY REALLY want to love it, but I don't. Sometimes I think I try and force myself to like it, but I can't.
Fiona - I think this is actually quite ugly. I know a lot in the UK.
Lola - Again, I know lots of Lolas in the UK (even a few in their teens) I see the appeal, but I've had a couple of bad experiences. I suppose that isn't the name's fault, though!
Erin - I personally think this is really ugly and masculine sounding. Lots of people on Nameberry seem to really like it, but to me it sounds awful.
Avery and Emery - SO awful. You couldn't pay me to name my child either of these. Really, I can't stand them.
Claire - Dull. Dull beyond belief. I do adore Clara, on the other hand.
Lydia - Horrible. I really don't like it.
Sorry if this just seemed like a 'slate all the names you can think of' post, but I just don't get Nameberry's obsession with some names.olivia, seventeen, vegan film student and owner of fluffy black cat Shura!

I find the majority of the names on here quite strange - possibly because I'm from the UK.
I can't stand anything double barrelled particularly if the two names don't actually flow together and especially if a boy's name (Jaden-Frankie, Gracie-Katelyn)
Any name that is really a surname bothers me (McKenzie, Grayson, Kennedy, Delaney)
Also don't like old man/lady names that have suddenly become popular (Florence, Arthur, Edith, Stanley etc)
Atticus - really bizarre, kind of like attic but sounds like a Roman emperor
Leyland - these are trucks in the UK
Beau - don't get it and what if he's unattractive?
Leander - sounds like a girl's name
Wyatt - like Earp?
Dwayne/Duane - doesn't sound right - why has the 'W' been added to the beggining of Wayne?
Rafferty - frilly
Ottilie - don't get it, a bit like utterly?
Jessamine - seems made up like two names sliced and stuck together
Skylar - is this a boys or girls name. A bit like skylight
Calliope - long, awkward
Juniper - like the bush used to make Gin?

Boys' Names on girls. It's confusing and it's ugly. How would you like your name to be a random boys' name? Plus, it reduces the amount of usable boy names.
This includes all -son and Mc- names except Allison.
John, Michael, Matthew, William, George *sleeps* There are 1,000,000+ men with each of these names in the US. Do we really need another one?
Names with the /xt/ consonant cluster. Braxton, Paxton.
Names that end in -ee. Too cutesy and childish.

I have relatives who have 3 boys and one girl. The boys are Chelsea, Ashley, and Sasha, and the girl is Pippini (she would have been Pippin if she had been a boy). Now, I realise that Sasha is a boys name in Russia (a country that this family has no connection to), and Ashley was originally more popular as a boys name than a girls. But Chelsea? And all those feminine-sounding names in combination with each other?
I dont get it. Also, their parents are teachers and therefore should have known that the kids would get teased a lot for their names. Which they do, especially Chelsea.

This thread sucks. Especially when you see two of your kids' names on peoples "hate" list. I appreciate this site and love seeing and learning about the favorite names of others as well reading constructive insights given to those who ask for it- but this is a little ridiculous and frankly, mean spirited.
