Slightly off topic..
I like names that mean something. No matter how strange if the name 'means' something to the parents I get it.
Mis-spelt names (I have no other way of discribing them) are just annoying.
DD has a super common name. Spelt properly. Love it.
What gets me = people with unusual names eg L-a (laadasha) that get the ****s when you miss spell/pronounce their name. For the third time. Sorry but blame your parents.
well here are two unusual ones i have heard of two people who's names are ( no joking this is real) Apples Galore and Island Tea.....i kid you not.
I knew a friend of a friend called Thong but pronounced tong. He hated the name and hated his parents each time a joke about g-strings and flip flops were made.
Classical Joy for a girl at my local library.
I have been reading through the thread and oh my god, how can people name their children some of these... Seriously some people are whacky and some names especially traditional names or common names spelt crazy with "extra" letters or "silent" letters just look so bogan..
A few unusual names I've heard but not hated are S.ummer, S.unny, A.nzac, A.rawn, K.arran, K.ershley, M.arley & P.epper. Don't mind any of them but can not pronounce A.rawn! I think the guy hated me because of it too.
I haven't come across any usual names that I really dislike.
I mainly tend to dislike common or "unique spelling" names.
I recently heard the name 'Nate'. Nothing wrong with that... then I saw it written down... Knate
I saw a girl yesterday who's name was Nar.tar.sha
