My names Harriet! And I like it! Lol!

I hate loads of names but cant pull any out of the air! I also hate it when people spell things creativly for no reason, though some names can be spelled differently, like all the different ways you can spell Catherine.

I HATE my name, Brenda. It's so boring. Blah!

I went to school with a Finster. It's just weird when you have a last name as a first name.

Argatha, my favorite aunt's name. Not Agatha (which I'm not crazy about either), but Argatha.

I really don't like my name, Elaine. I've never met anyone under the age of 60 with the name.

I was nanny for a girl who went to school with a boy named Didge. How horrible is that?
Also, I know an Ingram.

I'd love to be the ideal mother but I'm too busy raising my kids.

Anything Demi Moore would name a poor, defenseless child.

There are too many to count.

Bertha, Eugenie, Beatrice, Harvey, Hershall, Theodephia, Willamena (Although I like Mena), Willifred, Walter, Warren, Waldo, Wally (I would never name a person that. ) Eugene , Prunella, Prudunce, Chasity, Phyllis, Farquar, Evelyn, Opal, Murtle, Doris, Deliliha (I knew a really sweet Delillha, but I still don't like the name.), Debbie (really hate that one!), Horace, Homer, John, Angus (sounds like a steer ) Flyod.

I think that's enough for now.

I knew that wasn't your name. You're too cool to be a Eugenie.

How about when someone famous--I totally forgot who---named their daughter Clementine?? Now that is just awful. Who would want to be named after a citrus fruit??

OK..tops on my list:
Herbert( I grew up with a boy named James Herbert.....blehck)

and Ida(my great grandmother's middle name)

There are so many I couldn't possibley name them all. I don't like names that can that leave easy openings for teasing....ie: Dick, Peter, John, etc.....at least for my own family, I know everybody can get teased but I want to make them work a bit harder at it. That was my thing with the name Jesse, because it can be a girl or boy name, but with that little turkeys attitude and two big brothers I figure he is safe.
