The top baby naming turnoffs

It isn’t always easy picking the perfect name for your child, and while folks can find inspiration in a variety of places, there are some inspirations that are totally off-limits to a lot of moms and dads. 

A new UK poll, which could easily translate here, finds that for some, celebrities are a total no-no when picking a name for a child. In fact, 40% of couples say they would never give their kid the name of a famous child, while another 20% hate babies being named after celebrities themselves.

And while there are some baby names that are continuously popular year after year, a third of moms say they would never think to name their child a moniker that makes it to the most popular name charts.

But those are just a few of the baby name turnoffs parents have. The biggest thing that will turn a person off of a baby name is if the parent already dislikes someone with that name, followed by the name being that of their partner’s ex
