    I hate poncy sounding names on babies. As Rachel put it in friends they're not 'giving birth to a grandmother'!

    Examples include Lucinda, Mary, Margaret, Anne etc.

    I also hate those stupid, stupid names that just aren't names! Bluebell, Apple-blossom, Rain, Twilight.

    Those names should be abolished ...and made illegal
    In my defence, I live in Essex. So what would usually sound posh, sounds like "Loo-sin-daaaar" :p:

    I don't mind my name. It's too unusual to be like Margaret, Anne etc, IMO! And my family are barely even middle class :eek:

    Nevaeh - it's Heaven backwards don't you know?! There are HUNDREDS of them back in the States, it's everywhere, and it's terrible.

    I also hate to see REAL names being hideously misspelt. Our local hospital has an online nursery, where the names of recently born babies are listed, and a few months ago there was an Alyzzabeth. :cry:

    Really pretentious names which are generally hyphenated and consist of two or more names.

    I don't like Laura, even though it's my name. There used to be like 4 Lauras in my class and it was extremely annoying when someone called to one of us and we all turned round.
    I agree. My name is Laura as well, and we always had loads of Laura's in primary school but I'm the only Laura I know now. I'd much prefer Lauren as well.

    My name has come up a few times here :o:

    Any names that are numbers/days of the week or random adjectives.

    Here its quite common to take your parents names and mix them to make names, so some of them turn out pretty awful. Or just add Mari/Marie or Ette/nette on the end of a name..
    Or they just pick random nouns/adjectives as I mentioned above, I could literally reel off a list of names that are completely arbitrary (think tiny, brilliant, fox, macdonald, main road, brown, table, shade etc etc)

    I don't like dwayne, wayne, frank or percy (not that ive ever met a percy, just throwing it out there) :p:

    Chavvy names: Chantelle, Chelsea, Ashleigh, Britney, Jade, Jodie, Courtney, Kylie, Leanne, Connor, Declan, Dylan, Kieron, Rhys, Tyler, Wayne...

    Overused names: Alex (for boy or girl), Danielle, Rachel, David, Daniel, Sophie, Stephen, John, Tom or Thomas, Mark...

    Trendy 'middle class' names: Finlay, Luca, Spencer, Felix, Oscar, Caspar...

    Overused kids names: Ellie, Molly, Holly, Olivia, Isabel, Isabella...

    Old fashioned names: Sheila, Joyce, Lydia, Ethel, Mary, Henry, Harold, Arthur...

    P.S I actually saw in some celeb magazine that a couple (someone called Ashley... is it Tisdale?) have called their child 'Mowgli Bronx' or something like that. Also, I quite like the name Mercedes but only when it's used in Spanish. It just sounds trashy with an English accent but in Spain it's very popular.
