an odious name
Trollope tells us that Gotobed’s name “was, to tell the truth, odious to such men as Larry Twentyman.” This seems to be a turn on the Latin phrase nomen odiosum (or odiosum nomen), “hated name,” or a pejorative nickname. The phrase can be found in 19th c. writing in Latin and in English, but whether or not it has a precise point of Classical origin is unclear. [RR 2012]
