Search for Tomorrow - Kentucky Bluebird. Poor Sherry Mathis having to wander around shouting, "Oh that Kentucky!!" "Kentucky you come back here!!!" No wonder she quit.

B&B - I can be lenient with some names, but Storm always made me blanch for some reason.

Loving - Trucker and Rocky (I know that wasn't Rocky's real name). Then she marries a man named Rio. It all sounds like the title of a kids' show.

The UK's Channel 5's continuity announcers had a field day with B&B's names: Ridge, Throne, Storm, Brooke (who they nicknamed Babbling Brooke), and Sly (who would ever name their baby Sly?!).

Sunset Beach's Cole & Caitlin naming "their" baby, Trey, was awful. I still don't get how it stands for Armando Deschanel the third.

I always thought Dodger was a stupid name too.

Are you referring to Hollyoaks' Dodger Savage? TBF, it is a nickname. Unless, there was/is a US soap character with that same name...?

I hated Spike as well. I thought it was a cute joke at first, but when I realized they literally named the child Spike, my eyes could not roll fast enough.

Maybe it's a cultural thing, but a lot of UK soap names make me cringe. I'm talking both given and family names. The fact that one of Emmerdale's most important families is named the "Dingles" makes me want to vomit.

This reminds me that the Dingles have a lot of awful names: Chastity, Charity, Butch, Tinkerbell, Shadrach, Delilah Dingle...

Never seen the show but Trey is a nickname for the third. GH did the same thing with their Trey, whose real name was Joseph Scully the third.

I thought it was a nickname (I did mean Dodger), I just thought it was stupid to have that as the name people used.

The Dingles are a weird bunch so the names tended to fit them, but I do think it got ridiculous at various points. I think there was a Jebediah and Obadiah, etc.

The best part of Belle's name is that fans can have a reason to say Despicabelle, etc.

In last names, the Mortons on Corrie used to annoy me. It always sounded like the salt. And Emmerdale had some dubious names for new families over the years. I can't remember the last name of the holiday cottage family, but it annoyed me.

Greenlee. WTF is a greenlee? I hate naming people after last names and this is the worst offense

B&B - I can be lenient with some names, but Storm always made me blanch for some reason.
