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.polina ∙ 19 ∙ art history major ∙ web developer

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 amazing son: Theodore IsaacWhy yes, I probably should be working!

"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.
