10 Worst hookup names

, , ,

Fictional or real, these nicknames are just plain awful

In my eyes, rooting for TV couples to finally hook up is one of the more exciting aspects of a show. Everyone strives for love in their own lives, so when you become emotionally invested enough in the characters of your favourite TV shows, there’s a sense of satisfaction when their love lives finally work out.

But no matter how much you love or hate a couple, sometimes the people who blog and comment about them on message boards and forums come up with the most god-awful nicknames possible, and they become a trend. Thank the Bennifer/TomKat/Brangelina fad if you will. But in celebration of Valentine’s Day, here are the 10 worst fictional and real hookup names to date:

Who: George O’Malley (T.R. Knight) and Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) on Grey’s Anatomy.
Why it's terrible: Besides sounding like a bodily fluid, the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue.

Who: Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) on Grey’s Anatomy.
Why it's terrible: MerDer sort of reminds me of a radar or an alert message for some reason. Maybe it’s because every time I see these two together I know they’ll never be happy; so I just shouldn’t get my hopes up.

Who: Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox) and Juliet Burke (Elizabeth Mitchell) on Lost.
Why it's terrible: Why not Jackliet or Julack? At least those don’t sound like inanimate objects. Jacket? Really? Maybe that’s cause he needs a strait jacket for trusting her.

Who: Jack Shephard (Matthew Fox) and Kate Austen (Evangeline Lilly) on Lost.
Why it's terrible: I hate Jate. See how those two words go hand in hand? Enough said.

Who: Rob Mariano and Amber Brkich of Survivor and Amazing Race fame.
Why it's terrible: Perhaps because they took a romp in the sack on international television during Survivor, or perhaps Ambrob sounded too much like heartthrob, I don’t know. Either way, it’s pretty terrible.

Who: Britney Spears and Kevin Federline in their what-was-its-name reality show
Why it's terrible: Okay, maybe this name is actually quite fitting for their defunct relationship: It sped up, they got divorced and she crossed the line many, many times.

Who: Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens from High School Musical
Why it's terrible: Although Zanessa has some zing to it, the name is completely indicative of the relationship: she gets all the attention and he’s just added on as an afterthought.

Who: Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura, Pet Detective) and Jenny McCarthy (Singled Out co-host)
Why it's terrible: Um, Jiminy Cricket anyone? As in, Pinocchio character and the polite form of Jesus Christ? Jiminy Crickets, these two are an odd couple.

Who: Gisele Bundchen (Victoria Secret Fashion Show, The Devil Wears Prada) & Tom Brady (New England Patriots QB)
Why it's terrible: Similar to Gissy, this Gisom sounds like it should be a body fluid, not a nickname for the pairing of a hot supermodel and a star quarterback. Honestly.

Who: Jake Gyllenhaal (Jarhead) and Reese Witherspoon (Walk the Line, Legally Blonde)
Why it's terrible: As far as originality goes, this name has none. Although I personally would rather be force-fed with a Gyllenspoon than have to endure any more of these terrible, terrible nicknames.
