I'd have to say I don't have any, since I don't really mind that much if someone near me named their kid what I did. I don't necessarily like it.. but I'm not going to eliminate a name I love just because someone else used it.
Funny, I was going to make a similar post b/c I really like the names Coleman and Haven but can't use either because we had a creepy teacher in highschool who's last name was Coleman and the city I live in is called ______ Haven.
Names that were used by a relative, close friend, co-worker
I'm only listing the names that I might have considered had a family member not used them:
A name you like but reminds you too strongly of someone, like an ex.
Any "Emma" names
Names that your friends/family members have already "called" to use.
-Names spelled with lots of y's are so unnecessary.
-Names ending in -son for girls
-Masculine names for girls (although I LOVE the name Morgan which is my daughter's middle name. I had to use something more feminine for the first name.)
Names that are trendy or too popular unless they are classic, then they may be used as a MN.
Names of family, friends or relatives. I want my baby to be the only person I know with their name.
Names beginning with an "R" since that is the first letter of our last name.
Names that I associate with people that I have bad memories of or people I generally dislike.
*Names that a family member or close friend have used
*Names of an Ex or anything related to that Ex-which I am kinda urked about because they include Jamison, Jake, & Logan...names that I may have used.
*Names that I just really dislike such as- Leslie, Celeste, Libby, Eliza, & Elizabeth for some reason I dislike these names greatly mostly because of bad association & a few are because of the way they sound & make me think of Molest or Boogers.
*Any name that could be shortened into an embarassing nickname such a Billy-bob, Jim Bob etc...

* A name you like but reminds you too strongly of someone, like an ex.
Evan - my ex, could never use it now although I do like it.
* Names that your friends/family members have already "called" to use.
Paige - my SIL has called it. I like it, but don't love it.
* Any other kind of circumstance where you wouldn't use a certain name.
Anything top 20, I don't like popular names.
Also, any name that reminds me of a kid I've had in my class at school that drove me nuts. I could never have -
A few others that I can't think of. But having names ruined by other kids is a hazard of being a teacher
