Thread: Boys' names you despise?
December 23rd, 2011 02:37 PM #21
Aidan/Braden/Caden/Hayden/Jaden - This name got old for me a long time ago, and I'm one of those that could care less about popularity if it's a name I really love.
Charles - Charlie is adorable, but I could care less about Charles.
Edgar - I can tolerate most Ed- names, and a few are even favorites, but not this one.
Frank - Frankie is adorable, but Frank I can live without.
Hugo - I cannot understand the appeal of this name.
Jonah/Jonas - I don't hate this name, but a skanky relative of mine has ruined this name for me.
Oscar - I used to like this, but now I'm like "What was the appeal?"Annie, mid-twenties, vegetarian, name lover. No kids yet, just two furbabies - Roxy & Layla.
Top favorites for a girl: Beatrice Lily, Charlotte Amelia, Clara Louisa, Eliza Ruby, Josephine Alice, Katherine Annabel, Lillian Audrey, Margaret Helena, Matilda Iris, Philippa Violet
Top favorites for a boy: Adrian Silas, Alexander Gray, Emmett Oliver, Jasper Milo, Julian Edward, Lucian Henry, Nathaniel August, Samuel Owen, Rowan Felix, Theodore August

Well, the word "despise" is a little too strong. How about dislike? Here are the boys names I dislike intensely .
Ace / Trace / Chase / Case
Jordan / Jayden / Zaiden / Raidon / Jaelyn/ Braylen/ Braeden etc...
Jackson / Jaxon
Tucker and most occupational names ending in "er"
Beckett / Beckham
Colt / Colton
Kellan / Kellen
Zachary, Asher, Levi and Isaiah (Biblical names that I just haven't warmed to. Shocking for me!)
William (I'm in the minority about this one!)
I'm going to stop now before my eyes glaze over!All the best,

The Aidan-type names never really appealed to me, although Hayden isn't too bad. (I would never use it, but I can see it as a middle name on a character, perhaps)
Names of the "hypermasculine" persuasion (you know, names that make someone sound like a gun nut, like Gunnar, Hunter, or Troy) make me feel disgusted for some reason.
Snooty British names like Declan, Lachlan and August kind of bug me. Are the parents trying to be hipster/trendy or do they honestly think they're "a cut above the rest"?
Certain Biblical names that have been overused through the years. (i.e. James, Matthew, Joshua) If they weren't all over the place, I probably wouldn't mind them too much.
And here are some random names that I couldn't quite categorize:
Adam - Most of the people named Adam or Adams that I knew were so rude, snobby and full of themselves, this name is permanently ruined for me. Other than those bordering ludicrous, this is quite possibly my least favorite male name of all time.
Theodore - all I picture is the dumpy smelly kid nobody wanted to sit next to at lunch back in grade school.
Jude - Can someone explain why this name is so popular? Why does everyone else say "Ooh, Jude is such a hunky name!", yet all I can think of is a primadonna guitar player! Definitely not my idea of hunk material...
Jeremy - such a wimpy name. I wouldn't expect any son of mine to be some wall of meat, but he should at least sound like someone who is willing to stand on his own two feet.
Nathaniel - just this spelling in particular. I prefer the Nathanael spelling. To me, the Nathaniel spelling looks kind of wimpy.

I think I'm a big hater so here goes: Atticus, Sawyer, Caleb, Aiden et al, Willoughby, Reagan, Carter, Elijah, LIAM (gag!), Hunter, Tristan, Bentley (trashy), Jaxon (wtf?), *Rhyder, Rhys, Miles, Milo, Gage, Axel, Zion, Jameson, Brooks (oh lordy), Messiah, Harper (barf), Jagger; anything inappropriately spelled with a K or extra X. *
I'm sorry if this has offended anyone *“And remember, my sentimental friend, that a heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.” L. Frank Baum, The Wizard of Oz

Yikes! ^ I like most of those names. Oh well. To each their own.
But I realized I left some out:
Most of the popular names of my generation (Christopher, Brandon, Travis). I find nothing appealing about those names whatsoever.
Jaxon, nn Jax. HATE.
Julian- too feminine
Ezra- Ok, I don't hate it, but I wish this were a girl's name. It would work so much better as a girl's name!

Seth, Silas, Jasper - All are loved a lot in the new hipster crowds but all three for me are names of villains. I get a slick, slimy, creepy feel with all of them. I think I've had too much media exposure where there were bad characters with these names.
Ezra - For whatever reason this doesn't feel like a name to me. I know it is but...it doesn't click in my head.
And while I am fine with Aiden and Hayden, I don't care for the rest of the rhyming names.Switching careers and becoming an RN! Sadly mommy plans will have to wait until that's done. Still loving names though!

As everyone else said, the Aiden Ayden Aden trend names. Yuck.
Along with the Ailey/Aley/Ailee names, hailey, Kailey, Bailey etc
Pretty much any of those trend names that all seem to rhyme together.
Agreed with Slimy sounding names like Silas (Reminds of a creeper on The Simpsons)
Rex and other dog names for boys
Overly Feminine names
Overly Masculine/Violent names like Gunner, Blade, Blaze, Trigger etc
Zander with a Z
Lucas (But I like Luca)
Bentley/Other Car or brand names
I could go on and on really, there's a lot of boys names I dislike or would never use, lots of you have touched on them already.In Love, Engaged, and Fantasizing about Future Babies!!
We have two lovely rabbits named Luna and Lilou!
Lords - Lachlan Alexander - Evander 'Anders' Alcott - Cadmus Walter - Theron Xavier - Thatcher William - Peregrine North - Dresden Alasdair
Ladies - Natalie Winter - Adelaide Pearl - Hermione Jane - Corisande Fable - Lavender Alina/Irie - Cordelia Autumn - Virginia Joy- Odessa Faye
And Patience.... The one thing I never had enough of....
