Barbara. No rational reason. IIRC, I've met 3 in my life - didn't get along w/them. At all. (Now all the Barbara's here will identify themselves & I'll be in trouble.) :-/

@coondogg97: maybe the best response ever....

I almost did not answer because I do not want to offend anyone either, but the question is really spot on for me. The Gail's of the world and I just have never been on the same page!

I've had issues with Candaces over the years.

Interesting that all of the names mentioned so far (that weren't just to be funny) are women.

I'm not big on the name "Christian." I've never met anyone named "Jew" or "Muslim" so it just seems conceited to me.

Scientific fact: all Peggys* are jerks. It's like a self-fulfilling prophecy: they're named Peggy so they have to be a jerk. Now, I don't know any Keiths so I can't vouch for their jerkiness.

*Now, there may be one or two Peggys that aren't jerks but they secretly yearn to be a Marge or Margie.

No. I get along with everyone

Well, for awhile, it seemed to be "Mom." But then it passed. Or I should say, she did. We get along so much better now. ;)

I've never had any certain name that seems to plague me.....

vote-for5vote-against

I used to loathe any name that was intentionally misspelled just to be cute or different, like using an I instead of a Y or a PH isntead of an F. (Think "Tiphanni") Then I realized that my ire was misplaced, because it's those people's parents who deserve the derision for saddling those kids with unpronouncable, unspellable or utterly ridiculous names.

Oh, woe be to me in encounters with Jennifers, Scotts, and Ihors/Igors. Never a good experience with any bearing those names, alas.

@elforman: Oh, then you'll love the latest trend(other than teen vampire names)- just leave the last letter or two off the name, so Elizabet and Mariss become memorable.
Or something. Just a head shaker.

It's funny when my wife and I are talking about names for our future children, and she brings one up that I couldn't stand, and all I can say is "anything but [name goes here]..."
