Venustraphobia: Also known as caligynephobia, this is the fear of beautiful women, and may be caused by low self-confidence or putting too much pressure on appearances.

Anthropophobia: This phobia literally refers to the fear of people but can also mean the fear of having company.

Aphephobia: This phobia causes people to feel afraid when touched.

Autodysomophobia: If you have a bad or "vile" odor, you may trigger someone who has autodysomophobia.

Deipnophobia: Dinner parties, dining and dinner conversation are all off limits for people who suffer from this phobia.

Nomophobia: This modern phobia affects people who are very afraid of losing cell phone contact.
Soteriophobia: Some seriously independent-minded individuals may have soteriophobia, or the fear of becoming dependent on someone else.

Sociophobia: Those who fear being judged by society suffer from sociophobia.

Gamophobia: It’s not just an excuse: some people actually have a valid fear of getting married.
Syngenesophobia: While there are certainly jokes about scary stepmothers or in-laws, this phobia refers to the fear of all relatives.

Ecclesiophobia: The fear of church and going to church is called ecclesiophobia.

Ornithophobia: The fear of birds — especially pigeons — is referred to as ornithophobia, and is actually a fairly common phobia.

Lutraphobia: While some people think they’re cute, others are afraid of otters.
