My personal favorite is the Magic. Never thrown one though.

I'm general I like names that are discriptive of the flight, like the Pure. Great name for a pure flying disc. Truth is similar. Also like Fireball. Who doesn't want to go around throwing fireballs? And you can imagine it flying with a hook and crashing down.

I don't like Prodigy and Discmania names in general, similar to what others have said. Especially when you figure out some 7s are more stable than 5s on Prodigy's scale.

Also hate the Roach, Sinus, Vein, and pretty much any drug related name. Oh, and pretty much all of Vibram's names. Honorable mention of bad names to the Tantrum. Not something I actually want to throw, in spite of the fun play on words.

I'm not surprised that people don't like the Beetle. He was a pretty forgettable Spider Man villain.

I like bird names likely best, like Eagle, Hawk... Etc

I also loved the old warbird names from Lightning

I don't like discs named for other discs, with a modifier... I.e:
Buzzz buzzz ss os
Avenger, avenger ss
Nike, nuke os, ss
Teebird TL (tee bird L wing)
Firebird, FL
Eagle x, eagle L
Etc
Just give it a unique name instead of trying to replay old names

Lol, I got the eagle on my best and worst list...

Also not a fan of drug, death and crime references.

But the Volkswagen Beetle and Super Beetle were among the all time greats.

I dislike the letter/number naming scheme. It's great in theory, but gets gibbled when discs don't fly right. Then you end up with a retooled version with an even dumber name. H1v2 anyone? Sounds like a version of a flu vaccine. Or you don't release discs in the right order, and you end up muddling up the convention.

Also, the roach, as others stated, bad name. Most of Discrafts others are good.

Dynamics names are silly to me, but I wouldn't call most of them "bad".

I really like the MVP names, and most of axioms. I also like innovas animal and bird names.

Nah worst was the 3 top discs not needing PDGA approval until recently. One of the 3 top discs the Shark 3 is almost a different disc then the Shark. Due to flat topping the Shark both discs fly different as the Shark has more a putter like float due to the dome yet the Shark 3 is more like a true midrange disc with the glide being that of a true midrange not a between putter/midrange like disc as the Shark is.

Westside managed to give good names to their distance drivers and putters. The fairways and midranges are kinda average.
