    I went to school with a Logan, he was called Logan the Bogan. Couldn't name my kid that after seeing the pain this kid went through!
    I also went to school with a Sean, he was constantly reminding people his name was not pronounced "seen"

    Our surname ends in .....son so we can't have any name that ends in son as I think it's too repetitive shame as there are some nice names.

    I love the name Zac, unfortunately we didn't think of this when we got our dog 4 years ago and called him Zeke. DF gets confused enough with me and his sisters names Jessie and Joanne, could you imagine Zac and Zeke!!

    We got Kye instead.

    I actually think spike is a cute name for a boy ....

    I always loved Dash for a boy but for obvious reasons pointed out by DH, we couldn't use it if we ever had a boy (dash over here for a second etc)

    I think Spike is a nice name - for a dog, or a bleached blonde vampire in a long black coat. I understand others may disagree, but I have many names I don't like, and many rules for naming my kids. Spike fails because of the "adult-old person" rule (seriously, a grandpa named Spike?) and the "good job" rule. I would not hire a person named Spike, would not go to a Doctor named Spike, certainly would not like my daughters dating a boy named Spike, no matter how nice he may be. The name does not inspire any kind of good image to me... except the blonde vampire one, and that counts for little in real life.

    Anything starting in a K or a H. All of MIL's 3 grandchildren are H's, none of them get the right name. Which rules out Hudson, which I love!

    Anything starting with a K - 3 sils are K's, and DH married me (K). Another one where we all get the wrong name.

    Andrew - My son is Hamish, my Dad is Andrew. I'd love to have another DS and called him Drew (full name Andrew). But then I would have my very own Hamish & Andy!

    Mack - DH cant get past Mack Truck

    Bella & Chloe - both our pets! Luckily our fish are reddy & bluey so no chance of wanting to use them!

    Patrick & Lucy - parents animals...

    I really wish we and my parents hadnt used such nice human names for our pets!
