It doesn't make sense but can be understood
It is a common name, yet most have never heard it
It is the most beautiful name, but most hate it

What is my name?

I think the best possible answer could be

"                   "?

Or more commonly known as

SilenceSilenceSilenceSilenceSilenceSilenceSilence.......

(I know, I'm pathetic :P)

My name cannot be spelled

While you can write many onomatopoeias down, you can't write silence down, as shown above

It can't be heard or seen

You can't hear or see silence, it is simply the absence of noise

It doesn't make sense but can be understood

It's the absence of noise

It is a common name, yet most have never heard it

It is very difficult to hear silence, because there is usually some sort of noise. It is a common name (often said by teachers or librarians)

It is the most beautiful name, but most hate it

Most hate it because it means they can't speak

What is my name?

It might be silence
