    Primrose- The first syllable just calls to mind 'prim and proper.' Therefore, not a fun name to have, in my mind.

    Chloe/Zoe- I don't know why, it just feels kind of harsh to me.

    Arabella- I know that one is a favorite here, and I'm not sure why I dislike it.

    Rain/Rayne/Raine- I have a character with this name (the Rayne spelling), and she gets on my nerves. The name will always be associated with her, in my mind. The name itself if kind of pretty, but won't the child feel awkward in science class when learning about weather, or when they overhear someone say the dislike rain?

    Ella- It feels too trendy and insubstantial on its own. As a nickname for Ellanor (or, preferbly in my opinion, Ellanora), I like it.

    Gwendolyn/Genevieve- These feel a bit over-the-top, though they are kind of pretty.

    Flora/Fleur- Even though these mean flower, the sound reminds me of 'floride.'


    Sorry if I offended anyone. I hope I didn't and I certainly was not trying to.

    Maybe it's because my daughter's name is Clementine and I had that name as my top choice for 10 plus years but princessy? What? Did I miss the famous Princess Clementine in my fairy tale perusals? Princessy name? Aurora. Anything 3 syllables or over and ending in A. Our last name is British, but we didn't pick it for that either. Are we pretentious and overeducated? Uh, I guess?

    Names I hate....hmmm. Brianna, Kianna, Breanna, Britney or any derivative, Teagan, Keagan, any of those type names. Anything ending in Leigh. Irish or celtic names. Everyone at my college who was remotely Irish just sat around bragging about it all time. The result is that I can't deal with Irish names, even if you are Irish. Oh well.

    Names that I dislike mostly because they sound boring to me: Ann/e, Margaret, Josephine, Nora
    Hate is too strong of a word, they just aren't names that I would use! I would rather see them though over names like Kayla/Kylie (or any variation of that!) Any Bree-/Bray- name. And as so many have mentioned "creative" spellings of names like Michaela and Madeleine which I don't love but are perfectly nice names before they were turned into McKayla and Madelynnn.
    Perhaps I shouldn't complain too much though because my first name made it onto several people's hate list! :]

    Naming your daughter after a celebrity like Rhianna, Adele, Aniston (really?!), etc. Talk about not being unique!

    Agree on Nevaeh--if the child is so heavenly, why not just name her Celeste?!

    Cris
    THIS! You have definitely hit the nail on the head with this one.
    Crushes: Casper & Isobel.

    I know pretty much everyone said it, but I have to also. Nevaeh, nails on a chalkboard to me...
    I'm agreeing with a lot that were listed, but a few that stick out are Chloe, Peyton, Esme (I always think of the movie My Girl 2, when dad says "It sounds like a noise your nose makes"), Renesmee (are people really using this? When I read it in the book, I threw up in my mouth, then to top it off, they called her Nessie), Hermione (I've never read or seen HP, so maybe she's great, but it's not a cute name), Brittany and any spelling (I've only ever known ONE that I like), someone mentioned Hillary (barf), and I've always hated Natalie for some reason.
