For guys, Caleb is the worst, followed by Jayden, Brayden, Ayden, Caden, Sladen, Kaden, Rayden, Skyler, Tanner, and Logan.

On the flip side, I think Penelope, Sofia, Olivia, Sveta, Yesenia, Yelena, Yasmin, Yardenia, Izabela, Natalia, Kseniya, Graciela, Consuela, Marisol, Soledad, and Ariana are beautiful names.

For guys, I love names Maksim, Andrei, Ismael, Tyshawn, Aleksei, Salvador, Miguel, Bautista, Cristobal, Volodya, Vitaly, Fernando, Yaroslav, Miroslav, Nikolai, Gabriel, and Andres.
You love Hispanic names... Maybe you're latina ?

Marisol is a short cut or nickname for Maria del Sol. Penelope, Isabela,Sofia and Ariana are nice.
Miguel is very nice. I have always liked it but couldn't name my son because it's already my nephew's name. Salvador and Andres are nice too. The others are Russian ?

Personally, I prefer hispanic or latin names as well because it goes more with my last name and last names in my country. I loathe English names mixed with latin or hispanic surnames like what is happening in my country now.

Taking a wild and crazy guess that someone who chose the screen name Warszawa is from Poland.

I am with the others who said I like the names s/he hates better than the ones he loves.

The one girl's name I find absolutely hideous and don't understand how someone could pin on a baby girl is Zoe. It sounds like something grown in a lab. "Check the zoes and see if they multiplied in the petri dish over the weekend."

There is nothing pretty or feminine about the name.

I'm pretty liberal on names. But I would never choose one that is rampantly popular, no matter how much I liked it. Seriously, your kid doesn't want to be in a classroom where half the kids are named Noah and the other half are named Sophia.

I dislike all the names you like...!
My favorite ones are Katherine (my daughter's name actually), Lauren, Elizabeth, Sarah. I like more of the traditional names. Dislike Gertrude, Janel, Cassandra, Bridget.
Male names I like: Jonathan, Andrew, Matthew, Scott, Nathan. Dislike: Roland, Evan, Ronald, Robert, Theodore.

Also ANY names that are made up. One of my friends named her kid Brenlyn because her husband's name is Brent and her middle name is Lynn. Or parents who change the spelling of the name to make I look "cool". I find it ridiculous.

I will take almost any throwback name popularized two generations ago over some cutesy version of Mikayla/McKenna/McKenzie, thanks.

But I don't think the names are "unattractive," per se. Just dull and unoriginal and EVERYWHERE. I hated when that happened to Sophia, because it's a name I always liked, and now it's essentially unusable, unless you want a kid to be my generation's Amy or Jennifer or Jessica or Sarah, and have half a dozen in every class. Maybe I'll ressurect Amy. Working in schools, you see very few young children named Amy anymore, maybe it's gone from overused to quaint.

I think few names are actually UGLY-sounding, unless the have a lot of harsh gutterals or something, but that's not so common in English.

I don't
