Alexander- it's so common, I don't think of the bad association whenever I hear it, but I could never use it.
Courtney
Christy/Kristy
Kathy

I don't really have bad associations with any names. I have had people I wasn't too fond of in the past, but I don't really associate their names with them.

Colton
Joshua
Justin


My fellow teacher friends avoid "J" names because they feel that it's jinxed. lol

I dont really have bad associations w/ any names anymore. Ive kind of gotten over whatever grudges I had as far as names go.. There are certain names I wouldnt use because of people I know, but not because of the association w/ the name, but because they think I'd be stealing their name or naming my kid after them... which arent my intentions lol

Rebecca
Sabrina
Nathan
Patrick

And many more from teaching

I only have bad name associations with certain names, because of what these certain people did/said to me. (I know not everyone with these names are *bad* but I can't help but not to think of these people who have these names,

Boys:
Mark
Timothy
Ryan
Ian
Robert
Nicholas
John

Melissa (sorry Melissa, (Miracle) nothing against you, bad memory from middle school

I dont mean to offend anyone, once someones "ruined" a name for me, I dont like the name, but wont judge anyone else I meet with that name. This is mostly "what I wont name my baby because...." list.

GIRLS
MINE (But I wont tell!! :P I hate hate hate hate it, and I think its a little girl name)
Makayla, Micheala (I dont care how its spelled, I hate the name. Ex roommates gf who was a psycho.....)
Belinda (not Linda though)
Ainsely (girl who was a major CU...you know the rest!! in high school)
Tiffany (I just hate it. No reason, just do)
Amanda (Wont go there)
Shannon (Known a couple girls that ruined this one)
Sophie (just plain old dont like it....plus its to "little girl" for me)
Shelby/Shiloh (I think of these as dogs names, sorry but I do :confused: )
Tina (not Christina)
Mackenzie (to 90's and trendy)
Rebecca/Becky (to many)
April (So called best friend that stabbed me in the back)
Brianna, Ava, Jen, Melissa, Sarah, Michelle (dont hate them, just waaaaaay to popular)
And any name that has had C's changed to K's, and I's to Y's to be "original"


GUYS
Cory, Aaron (abusive men, should be in jail)
Scott (guy that sexually harrassed me at work)
Jack (just dont like it)
Mike/Chris/Daniel (WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY to many!!)
Raymond (not Ray)
Frank (just dont like it. And makes me think of Frank Zappa)

Laurel
Maureen

Names I would never use because when I hear the name I automatically think of a person I once knew. Not necessarily a person I didn't like, I just don't like having an instant reaction to a name and thinking of it as someone else's name when it is supposed to be "my baby's name."

I like traditional names.

So therefore I tend to dislike names that people make up.

I also don't like it when people take 'common' names but spell them some odd way.

I have an uncommon name myself (Kallie). I just know that I hated being that little girl in school who ALWAYS had to spell her name or correct people when they got it wrong, so I don't wanna put my kid through that.

Jeb-O December 19th, 2007 12:42 PM

I don't think Kallie is hard to spell?
