Most Hated Baby Names

A friend of mine way down yonder in the sticks of Oregon is going ot have a baby soon.  He is contantly arguing with his wife about the baby name.  And it seems like everythig they come up with does not work.  SO again I had to start searching on the net for the best names to help my pal out.  I was amazed that some folks HATE certain BABY NAMES! Check out what i found below:



It's easy to find out the baby names people like, but figuring out what they dislike is much harder. It turns out there really is a thin line between love and hate. Many of the names that are most popular on the list supplied annually by the Social Security Administration are also the same names that are the most disliked. Call it a backlash against trendy. LiveScience.com says it succinctly: "A quick track to baby-name fame seems to also trigger hate for that name." The number one name that people dislike the most is Nevaeh, which is "heaven" spelled backward. This made-up name for girls didn't even exist until the 1990s, but skyrocketed in popularity from 2003 to 2007 when it shot up from the 150th most common baby name to the 31st.
The top 10 most hated boys' names:
  1. Jayden
  2. Brayden
  3. Aiden
  4. Kaden
  5. Hunter
  6. Hayden
  7. Bentley
  8. Tristan
  9. Michael
  10. Jackson
The top 10 most hated girls' names:
  1. Nevaeh
  2. Destiny
  3. Madison
  4. Mackenzie
  5. McKenna
  6. Addison
  7. Gertrude
  8. Kaitlyn
  9. Makayla
  10. Bertha
What is it exactly that people hate about these names?
  • People really hate gender-bending names, especially when a masculine name becomes feminine. Example: Addison.
  • People dislike names they can't spell or names with made-up spellings, such as Kaitlyn. Mind you, Caitlin is fine because that spelling is traditional.
  • People spurn names that confer a virtue onto a child, such as Destiny.
  • Ugly names, such as Gertrude or Bertha, are also disliked.
  • Violent names, such as Hunter, are detested by some.
  • Brand names, such as Bentley, are considered trashy.
  • Some people hate ordinary names, which they consider boring. That's why Michael is on the top 10 list of most disliked names.
Meanwhile, itmagine a schoolroom filled with children named Abner, Milton, Clementine and Susannah. This isn't something from the late 1800s. It could be coming to school near you in the next decade or so. These and other old-fashioned names are poised to make a comeback, displacing Aiden, Michael, Chloe and Sophia, according to Nameberry.com. The following classic names were all popular in the past -- sometimes the quite distant past -- but all may be making a second act soon.
Odd boys' names poised for a comeback:
  1. Abner
  2. Augustine
  3. Cormac
  4. Cornelius
  5. Denver
  6. Ephraim
  7. Ford
  8. Gordon
  9. Guy
  10. Magnus
  11. Milton
  12. Nigel
  13. Otis
  14. Simeon
Odd girls' names poised for a comeback:
  1. Antonia
  2. Aurelia
  3. Clementine
  4. Cordelia
  5. Harriet
  6. India
  7. Louisa
  8. Lucinda
  9. Mabel
  10. Marcella
  11. Margo
  12. Marion
  13. Mercy
  14. Susannah
