that make you cringe!! or just a naming trend that makes you go "ug-another one??" a few years ago, my biggest naqming pet peeve was all the -aden names for boys. i like aiden and i can tolerate braden but jaden, hayden, kaiden, maden, etc. was too much!! im still not too keen on those but my newst pet peeve is the name PAISLEY for a girl. i cannot stand it. its a fabric pattern, not a child. its like using plaid or polka dot or stripes for a name-it just doesnt cut it for me. i have come across 3 in the last 2 weeks(granted-i havent actually seen the children named it-but one was on a message board, one was on facebook and one was on maury)...and i just shake my head.
another up and coming name for girls is violet. all because jennifer garner thought it was a good name. it IS a great name-it was a great name in 2000 when i named my oldest dd it and it was wayyyyyy down on the popularity list at #735 and in 2011 it was #101. but i guess in her peer group-the name isnt that popular-in 5 more years, it might be in the top 10...but she'll be 17 then so...now my other dds name-isabelle-is far more popular than her sisters. oh well...
thanks for listening to my vent and what are your opinions/pet peeves??
