10.[name]Nelson[/name] (C”line [name]Dion[/name] & [name]Ren[/name]” Ang”lil)

While I do agree that [name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] is the worst celebrity baby name (not forgetting [name]Vince[/name] [name]Vaughan[/name]'s [name]Locklyn[/name] which should have made the list), I like some of the names on this list. In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with [name]Abel[/name], [name]Cosima[/name] or [name]Vida[/name]. One name on the best list that I’m not too crazy about is [name]Aviana[/name] [name]Olea[/name]. I know [name]Aviana[/name] is actually a name but it still looks made up and [name]Aviana[/name] [name]Olea[/name] are too cutesy together. [name]Olea[/name] reminds me of Oli of [name]Olay[/name]. One omission on the best list that should have been included is [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Hayes[/name].

with the exception of [name]Gideon[/name] [name]Scott[/name] I think they have about hit the nail on the head for this list. I can’t stand the name [name]Cosima[/name] though I know it is a favorite here. [name]Just[/name] looks and sounds ugly to me.

I was reading this earlier…glad someone brought it up here!

I like [name]Grace[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] a lot, and I’m glad it’s the top name! I don’t like [name]Aviana[/name] [name]Olea[/name] at all…maybe separately, but not together. [name]Harper[/name] [name]Grace[/name] and [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] are nice but boring…[name]Stella[/name] is beautiful, but (unfortunately) pretty trendy. I like the rest of the top names, except maybe [name]Easton[/name]. Of the “worst” names, I actually like [name]Cosima[/name], [name]Axel[/name], [name]Gideon[/name], [name]Vida[/name] and [name]Nelson[/name]. Wouldn’t use any of the names personally, but I hardly think they’re the “worst” celebrity baby names of 2010.

[name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] [name]Maurice[/name] is pretty terrible, though, lol.

For the most part I think they did a good job, but I do have a few disagreements, especially on the “worst” list. I don’t like [name]Gideon[/name] [name]Scott[/name], but it certainly isn’t that bad. [name]Abel[/name] [name]James[/name] is actually quite nice, as are [name]Vida[/name], [name]Axel[/name], and [name]Cosima[/name].They’re all quite uncommon, but certainly not the worst names in existence. And I agree- [name]Locklyn[/name] [name]Kyla[/name] definitely should have made the list. [name]Nelson[/name] isn’t stylish, but it was given for a significant reason (I believe after [name]Nelson[/name] [name]Mandela[/name], who [name]Celine[/name] [name]Dion[/name] has met), and [name]Eddie[/name] is also honoring someone important to the family’s life. I don’t think names like that can ever be classified as bad because they’re so meaningful, but they were on Nameberry’s worst too so maybe I’m alone on that. I’m with them for [name]Billie[/name], [name]Krishna[/name], [name]Egypt[/name], and [name]Buddy[/name], though.
As for the best list, it seems they only allowed names on there if they approached the top of the popularity list. They’re all nice names, but not too many terribly interesting ones. [name]Grace[/name] [name]Margaret[/name] is lovely and classic, as is [name]Olivia[/name] [name]Marie[/name] and [name]Levi[/name] [name]James[/name], but they’re a tad boring. Very boring, actually. [name]Easton[/name] is a great name, and [name]Aviana[/name] is far less trendy than it appears- it was after [name]Amy[/name] [name]Adams[/name]’ birthplace, Aviano, [name]Italy[/name].

I like [name]Harper[/name], [name]Margaret[/name] and [name]James[/name], but the name combinations are just OK to me. [name]Bryn[/name] is cute, but the baby’s full name is [name]Bryn[/name] [name]Casey[/name] (not sure about the spelling) Hoppy, which is too cutesy for me, as is [name]Aviana[/name] [name]Olea[/name]. [name]Don[/name]'t get me wrong, I just don’t think they’re the best celeb baby names of 2010. I actually love [name]Cosima[/name] [name]Violet[/name], [name]Axel[/name], [name]Billie[/name], [name]Abel[/name] [name]James[/name] and [name]Vida[/name]! [name]Gideon[/name] [name]Scott[/name] is a very nice name, [name]Nelson[/name] is OK, and even [name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] [name]Maurice[/name] isn’t the worst! My list would go (in no particular order):

[name]Kieran[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]
[name]Chaplin[/name] Haddow
[name]India[/name] [name]Pearl[/name]
[name]Cosima[/name] [name]Violet[/name]
[name]Eve[/name] [name]Augusta[/name]
[name]Junia[/name] [name]Rosa[/name] [name]Ruth[/name]
[name]Florence[/name] [name]Rose[/name] Edellion
[name]Leo[/name] [name]Benjamin[/name]

[name]Cash[/name] [name]Rich[/name]
Kloey [name]Alexandra[/name]
[name]Madilyn[/name] [name]Grace[/name]
[name]Locklyn[/name] [name]Kyla[/name]
[name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] [name]Maurice[/name] (sorry, [name]Jamie[/name], I love all your girls’ first names but [name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] doesn’t age well)

I do agree with alot of the names. I do like [name]Gideon[/name], [name]Vida[/name], [name]Billie[/name], [name]Abel[/name] and [name]Cosima[/name]. And I don’t like [name]Easton[/name] and [name]Bryn[/name].

These are the names I think that are good. (I like the format of this thread BTW :slight_smile: )

for girls:

  1. [name]Molly[/name] [name]June[/name] - [name]Amanda[/name] Peet’s daughter. I love the names together. So cute!!
  2. [name]Cosima[/name] [name]Violet[/name] - [name]Claudia[/name] Schiffer’s daughter. I adore the name. But I do prefer [name]Cosette[/name].
  3. [name]Eve[/name] [name]Agusta[/name] - [name]Jessica[/name] Capshaw’s daughter. I love this name I think there is something just so classic and exotic about it.
  4. [name]Gia[/name] [name]Francesca[/name] - [name]Mario[/name] Lopez’s daughter. I like [name]Gia[/name] a lot more than [name]Mia[/name]. And [name]Gia[/name] goes nicely with [name]Francesca[/name].
  5. [name]Harper[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - [name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] [name]Harris[/name]'s daughter. At first I didn’t like the name [name]Harper[/name]. But it is growing on me. I like the feminine classic [name]Grace[/name] as the middle name for it too.
  6. [name]Stella[/name] Zavala - [name]Matt[/name] [name]Damon[/name]'s daughter. I do like the name [name]Stella[/name] a lot. This name is very heavy on the vowels but it really goes nicely with all the other names of their children!!
  7. [name]Genevieve[/name] [name]Marie[/name] - [name]Jimmie[/name] [name]Johnson[/name]'s daughter. I like the name [name]Genevieve[/name] I think it’s so pretty!!
  8. [name]Beatrix[/name] [name]Carlin[/name] - [name]Jodie[/name] Sweetin’s daughter. Ok, so I don’t like [name]Carlin[/name] but [name]Beatrix[/name] is just adorable and I couldn’t not give her credit for choosing it.
  9. [name]Carina[/name] [name]Rose[/name] - [name]Rob[/name] & [name]Amber[/name] [name]Mariano[/name]'s daughter (the survivor alums). I kind of like the name. It’s pretty.
  10. [name]Billie[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] - [name]Eric[/name] [name]Dane[/name] and [name]Rebecca[/name] Gayheart’s daughter. Ok I adore this name. [name]Billie[/name] [name]Beatrice[/name] has such a cool feel to it but also kind of a classic/modern feel.

10 names I don’t like for girls.

  1. Anbilliene - [name]Dominic[/name] Zampronga’s daughter. This name is just all kinds of made-up messed-up [name]AH[/name]! Why didn’t someone suggest [name]Abilene[/name]?
  2. [name]Locklyn[/name] [name]Kyla[/name] - [name]Vince[/name] [name]Vaughn[/name]'s daughter. I don’t like the spelling of [name]Lachlan[/name] and I don’t like it on a girl. I don’t like the name [name]Kyla[/name] either but I like the family meaning behind it because it’s the mother’s name.
  3. [name]Chaplin[/name] Haddow - [name]Ever[/name] Carradine’s daughter. This name sounds so masculine to me. I can’t imagine in on a little girl. And I don’t like either of the names for boys or girls.
  4. [name]Malena[/name] [name]James[/name] - [name]Constantine[/name] Maroulis’s daughter. I think [name]Malena[/name] sounds unfinished. To me it should be [name]Marlena[/name]. And I don’t like [name]James[/name] as a name for a girl middle name or otherwise.
  5. [name]Adalynn[/name] [name]Rose[/name] - [name]Chris[/name] Daughtry’s daughter. I love [name]Rose[/name] don’t get me wrong. But [name]Adalynn[/name] just looks wrong to me. It looks trendy because of the spelling, and kind of made-up.
  6. [name]Jordon[/name] [name]Catherine[/name] - Dierks [name]Bentley[/name]'s daughter. I don’t like [name]Jordon[/name] on girls. I even have a female cousin named [name]Jordon[/name] and I don’t like the name on girls. It’s too masculine for my taste. [name]Catherine[/name] is pretty though.
  7. [name]Abbey[/name] [name]Ray[/name] - [name]Patrick[/name] [name]Fabian[/name]'s daughter. I think this name is way to nick namey for a name. And I don’t really like [name]Abbey[/name] …
  8. [name]Madilyn[/name] [name]Grace[/name] - Ne-[name]Yo[/name]'s daughter. I like [name]Grace[/name] and I don’t mind [name]Madeline[/name] it’s a name used in my family quite a bit, but what I don’t like is the trendy spelling it puts me off the name.
  9. [name]Jessica[/name] [name]Lynne[/name] - [name]Justin[/name] [name]Wilson[/name]'s daughter. It isn’t a bad name per say, I just think it’s dated and kind of blah.
  10. [name]Simone[/name] [name]Lyn[/name] - “Guncle’s” [name]Baby[/name] ([name]Bill[/name] Horn & [name]Scoutt[/name] Masterson’s daughter) I don’t mind [name]Simone[/name] but when you pair it with [name]Lyn[/name] and the two different N sounds are so close to one another when pronouncing it it makes the name sound really harsh and rough.

Top 10 names for boys that I like are.

  1. [name]Theodore[/name] [name]Hayes[/name] - [name]Ali[/name] Larter’s little boy. I adore this name. I love [name]Theodore[/name], I love [name]Hayes[/name] and together there are just even more stunning.
  2. [name]Cavan[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - [name]Greg[/name] [name]Vaughan[/name]'s son. Ok - [name]Cavan[/name] is a little trendy sounding but I like it a lot it’s kind of a guilty pleasure name for me. And I do like [name]Thomas[/name] I think it’s cute!!
  3. [name]Marcello[/name] [name]Daniel[/name] - [name]Diablo[/name] [name]Cody[/name]'s son. [name]Marcello[/name] is a strong name and [name]Daniel[/name] is classic!
  4. [name]Gideon[/name] [name]Scott[/name] - [name]Neil[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] [name]Harris[/name]'s son. I think this name is so cute. I adore Irish/Scottish names.
  5. McGreggor [name]Edward[/name] - [name]Bree[/name] [name]Williamson[/name]'s son, at first I wasn’t 100% sure if I liked McGreggor but it’s grown on me and I love the name [name]Greggory[/name] so I think it’s a nice alternative to that name. [name]Edward[/name] is a name I will probably use for a middle name when and if I have a son after my father!
  6. [name]Abel[/name] [name]James[/name] - [name]Will[/name] [name]Arnett[/name] and [name]Amy[/name] Poehler’s son. I love [name]Abel[/name], it’s so cool. I think they have good naming style!
  7. [name]Bodhi[/name] Hawn - [name]Oliver[/name] [name]Hudson[/name]'s son. Ok I like it, it’s kind of cute.
  8. [name]Hudson[/name] [name]Nicholas[/name] - [name]Drew[/name] Lachey’s son. I like the name [name]Hudson[/name] alot. [name]Even[/name] though I probably wouldn’t use it because it’s so Canadian. It reminds me of learning about the [name]Hudson[/name]'s bay company in [name]Junior[/name] High.
  9. [name]Emerson[/name] Truett - [name]Rebecca[/name] Herbst & [name]Michael[/name] Saucedo’s son. I like [name]Emerson[/name] for a boy and I adore Truett so I think the combo is cute.
  10. [name]Luc[/name] [name]Laurent[/name] - [name]Sean[/name] [name]Patrick[/name] [name]Thomas[/name]'s son - I like the name and it’s very french sounding which I also like.

Top 10 names I don’t like for boys.

  1. Copeland [name]Cruz[/name] - [name]Ryan[/name] Tedder’s son. [name]Cruz[/name] is kind of cool, but Copeland is a surname that I personally don’t feel works as a first name.
  2. [name]Titus[/name] [name]Gabriel[/name] - [name]Jonathan[/name] [name]Jackson[/name]'s son. I really don’t like the name [name]Titus[/name].
  3. [name]Tatum[/name] [name]Christopher[/name] - [name]Luke[/name] Bryans son. I don’t like either one of the names personally.
  4. [name]Ean[/name] [name]Jacob[/name] - [name]Bo[/name] [name]Bice[/name]'s son. I think if you’re going to use the name [name]Ean[/name] it should be the [name]Ian[/name] spelling I think it looks nicer. And [name]Jacob[/name] is well… [name]Jacob[/name] what can you really say about it?
  5. [name]Sundance[/name] [name]Thomas[/name] - [name]Kerri[/name] [name]Walsh[/name]'s son’s name. Ok I do like [name]Thomas[/name]. But I am still not sold on [name]Sundance[/name] I don’t like it at all. I don’t see that ever changing. So for me It goes on the worst list for celebrity baby names for this year.
  6. [name]Buddy[/name] [name]Bear[/name] [name]Maurice[/name] - [name]Jamie[/name] [name]Oliver[/name]'s son. I really don’t know what they are thinking when they come up with baby names. They are all so sugary sweet that I feel like I have to brush my teeth after saying them.
  7. [name]Egypt[/name] [name]Daoud[/name] - [name]Alicia[/name] Key’s and Swizz [name]Beat[/name]'s son. Yeah I don’t like [name]Egypt[/name] as a name.
  8. [name]Ever[/name] [name]Imre[/name] - [name]Alanis[/name] Morissette’s son. [name]Ever[/name] is kinda feminine. It’s cute but feminine. And idk about [name]Imre[/name].
  9. [name]Dakota[/name] [name]Jefferson[/name] - Big [name]Kenny[/name]'s son. I hate [name]Dakota[/name] for a boy. I’ve only ever seen it used on a girl so to me its feminine. [name]Jefferson[/name] is ok though.
  10. [name]Nelson[/name] - [name]Celene[/name] [name]Dion[/name]'s son. I’m kinda disappointed with both of her twin’s names. I was hoping for something a little more French to go with her older son’s name.

Well this is an interesting list.

As far as the best list I like them all except, [name]Aviana[/name] [name]Olea[/name], and Zavala. [name]Bryn[/name], and [name]Easton[/name] are by far my favorite from that list though.

For the worst list I actually somewhat like [name]Egypt[/name], [name]Gideon[/name], [name]Abel[/name], and [name]Nelson[/name]. I really like [name]Axel[/name] and love [name]Vida[/name]. The other names are pretty horrible though.

: )

Was this list compiled by an editor or voted on by members?
I’m just wondering because the inclusion of [name]Krishna[/name] as a “worst” is pretty disturbing, especially since [name]Padma[/name]'s [name]Indian[/name]. :roll: But given some of the message board posts I read over there when I was pregnant, that kind of xenophobia on that site unfortunately doesn’t surprise me.
