Names and your last name..
 
Are there any names that you would just never use because of your last name? And I'm not talking about just sounding a little repititive, I'm talking super, asking for your kid to be teased horrible...think Oscar if your last name is Meyer ;)



For me there really aren't any that I can think of. I have a pretty simple last name. Well maybe Rennie....it sounds really funny with my last name.

Luckily my last name doesn't have any, well any I can think of!
But, I have always loved the name Beau and my last name starts with O'*** so it sounds pretty silly!!

I dont think there are any names like that with our last name, thankfully!

not really.... my last name isn't too common, but it doesn't really rhyme with anything, or have any names that can be put in front of it that make it into something tease-worthy

Before I met my husband I always liked the name Craig or Kraig... Since our last name is Craig I don't think that would work to well hehe.

I dont have any names that I wouldnt use because of my last name...
But I did go to school with a guy named Jesse Tripp his little brothers were Major Tripp and Minor Tripp. Poor kids.

My ex and I had an issue pop up with our pregnancy before I MCed.
His last name is Cox and I had always loved the name Eden. I had to explain to him WHY we had to think of a different name. -_-
Edited to add:
Other issues in just discussing names with people....my exhusband's last name is Jewell. Therefore, Scarlett, which I was in love with at the name, had to go away...along with anything color related. Along with Julian [which I'm still in love with].
Another ex's last name was Venable, rendering my much beloved at the time "Vincent" not usable in my opinion, even though he thought it sounded awesome.
So yeah, I've had several issues. I have a guy friend in England that I've known since 12 and his last name is Wong...we were discussing names of kids and I told him my list....Miles is on it. He loved Miles. I told him I thought it was a bad idea for him. ^_^

My maiden name was Bush, and my father almost got away with naming my sister "Rose." I know some poor child is out there with "Ima." Ima Bush, Ima Stone...

Worst I've seen was in school, a friend's dad(also a coach) was named Paul Enis. All of the jerseys were first initial and last name. Guess who was sending his jersey back for a new one?

Tons. Basically anything with a "sh" sound, or an R won't work.

Charlotte
Ruby
Rosalie
Cecilia
Rebekkah
Gabriel
Ronan
Elisha

As for the ones that would really get them teased, the only name is Richard. Our last name is Richard with an accent over the a, pronounced Rih-Shard. Richard Richard would be very bad indeed!

Cane...our last name is Able. I don't think a Cane Able would sound right :D

Jack. Last name is Russell. It is a shame because I love the name Jack.

Indiana
Star
Tommy
Bridget
Catherine
Davy
Shirley
James
Norah (even though I like it!!!)
etc- you get the idea I'm sure ;)

I always wanted to use Mikayla, but our last name starts with Mc. When I mentioned using Mikayla to a friend she said "oh she can be M&M". Needless to say we didn't use Mikayla

Re: Names and your last name..
 
We are lucky that most names seem to sound ok with our surnames. We liked Ruby, but his last name starts with R, but still it sounded good. However my middle name is Rosalie and it sounds awful with his surname! Probably because both names are 3 syllables, they just go into a tongue twist! I also like the name Rafferty for a boy, but that doesn't really go that well either.

Re: Names and your last name..
 
I can't use names with a strong B sound or any names with Ash in.. Ashley, Asher, Ashlyn etc.

Re: Names and your last name..
 
I like Hue,but wouldn't use it because my last name is similar

Re: Names and your last name..
 
Our surname and the name River would sound rather stupid together, it begins with F.

Re: Names and your last name..
 
Since my last name is Wyatt, we can never use the first name.... Wyatt. :lol: I really like that name for a boy, too. :rolleyes:

Re: Names and your last name..
 
We often joke that we should name our next kid Trans so when you say Trans and our last name... it sounds like Transparent. :rolleyes:

Any P names are out. People screw up our last name ALL the time (it's so simple?) and say "Parrot" instead.

OH EM GEE! That's terrible.. I think some parents do stuff like that on purpose, some joke! I've run across some that were pretty bad too. When I was pregnant with my first, my ex's last name is Cox and I was reading down the names in a baby book and read outloud the name "Cloris" as in Cloris Leechman and he just violently shook his head and said "No way." I thought about it and said Oh.. yeah, that wouldn't end well lol.


As for now, the only name off limits really is Harrison, since our last name is Harris. I'm picky with most H names but some I do like/will allow.
