@Araya: Yikes, I always wonder about stuff like this when I go in for a job interview – like how it affects your chances if you have the same name as someone the interviewer hated, or look just like their ex or something.
Sorry about your sister, sounds like it’s kind of stressful for you.

“Kate” and “Kat” – the former being his ex-girlfriend’s name, the latter being his nickname for her. He stopped addressing her with the latter after I gave him a very long, lingering dirty look. Your new girlfriend-now-wife doesn’t need to hear you talk about your ex using her pet name.

@Daizy914: I had an ex cheat on me with a girl named Heidi I can’t stand that name now and I even have a friend named Heidi. I had another ex cheat on me with a girl named MaKayla. I knew a girl in college named Kinzi who was basically the campus whore and for whatever reason made it her job to try to steal any boyfriend I had. My 8 year old daughter loves both names and has a baby doll named MaKayla and Kinzi. I’ve tried to convince her to change both those names lol. She says she named them after her school friends.
You can’t help but associate names with people sometimes. It doesn’t make you immature, just human.

Shelby, I’ve only known 2 and one mad fun of me all through preschool and traumatized me… My mom said I didn’t wear shorts to school again untill 3rd grade. She also used safety scissors to cut my hair. it was long (past my shoulders) and she just cut it during arts and crafts.
Shelby number two is Fiance ex girlfriend. She was just….crazy. Now that I’m thinking about it….it could seriously be the same girl. We both grew up in the same area and and it seems just f’d up enough to be true… Too bad I’ll never know for sure lol.

@VivienMarcheline: i have issues with names that are cute for kids but unfitting for adults. i thought about that kind of stuff when i was a kid when names like tiffany and brittany were popular.

Megan. It’s not a name you hear too often on little kids anymore, but being born in the 80s I knew a few of them and every.single.one was a huge bitch.

@IAmTheShadow: It is, just a common way to spell it in Swedish.
+1. I don’t hate names like that, but it definitely makes me cringe a little trying to picture an adult with a kid name.

Names of any exes are eliminated right aways no matter how great the name may be – like Harrison.
Other names we would absolutely not name our kids are Kevin or Peter. Everyone we know who had those names were bad people or died young.

There’s a lot of names me and my boyfriend have talked about naming our children and we will both like the name but it will be associated with someone we don’t like and that automatically crosses that name off the list.

@VivienMarcheline: This made me laugh because it reminded me of an Australian tv show I watched years ago about these nutty women who were coming up with baby names that they wanted to be yoonique! She was like I want to name her Stephanie, but spelled Stephpha’knee.

Two of my exes had the same name but with a different spelling. It’s definitely off limits now!!

I hate when a parent introduces their child and based on the age and asexual name, I have no idea whether it’s a boy or a girl then they get pissed off when I tell them their daughter is a handsome little boy.

Any name that you know people tried TOO hard at. Like ‘Apple’, ‘Blanket’, etc. etc…
