Parents spend ages agonising about what to call their children.

But it turns out all they need to do is look online.

A baby name expert has combed internet message boards checking for reactions to people's names. She has come up with a list of the most hated for boys and girls.

Among the things people seemed to dislike were "made up" unconventional spellings of well known names or those that seem to confer particular qualities on their bearers, like Destiny.

  5. McKenna
  6. Addison
  7. Gertrude
