Dragonfly715 :  Guy with the same first name as my Darling Husband literally tried to kill me. I mean LITERALLY!  He was a bad dude and hung around with the group I did. He showed up uninvited one night and pulled a knife on me. 

When I met Darling Husband I was like ….  ehhhh….. but then you just start having good times and they replace the memories attached to something as silly as a name.

snowflake8 :  I have issues with Matt’s too, one of them went psycho and pulled a gun on himself in front of me. Also just met a ton of Matts who are jerks. Also not fond of the name Chris. My Darling Husband is a Jeff and I’ve dated previous Jeff’s so was super stoked about it. John in our family is highly repeated. My moms 1st husband was a John, she has a son named John, my dad her second husband was a John, as well as his father was a John. So probably won’t ever use it for my kids name.

Dragonfly715 :  my mother hates me fathers name, but luckily he pretty much always goes by his middle name. In fact, the story goes that my mother didn’t know my fathers name was actually his middle name and not his actual first name until they were married (or at least that’s how the story goes). She claimed she never would have married him has she known, lol! But in the end, they had 4 children together and this year are celebrating their 40th anniversary. So go figure 🙂

Dragonfly715 :  

 

yup. I hate my fiancé’s first name. But I’ve gotten over it a bit. It’s Robert but he goes by Rob. I call him Robbie and feel better about it that way lol. There’s nothing wrong with it, I just don’t like it.

The last name change… That’s something I’m having a hard time with. It’s not that I hate his last name. It’s fine, not embarrassing. It’s because I associate his last name with his father, who I don’t get along with. I feel like taking his last name is like him winning something (I know that sounds crazy). However, I will probably get over it and take his name anyway. I wish the tradition to make your own new last name instead of taking the grooms. I just think it makes so much more sense. You are individuals separate from your parents and you have a unique relationship with your own SO, one that is not necessarily like theirs… So why should you share a last name? It just doesn’t make sense to me. Sorry for the slightly off topic tangent.

I didn’t HATE my SOs name, per se, but since we come from different cultures, it was very…. Strange? For me. I got used to it though, and now can’t imagine calling him anything else

I disliked my first serious boyfriend’s last name. It just sounded so silly. I always thought that if we got married, I’d keep my maiden name rather than be saddled with it.

My abusive ex was named Mark so I have zero positive associations with that name, and I’ve taught some kids who have turned me off certain names (although that’s more thinking of my future children and what they’ll be named).

My Darling Husband broke up with his high school gf when he went to college bc he was embarrassed to tell people he was dating a girl named Agnes. He thought it was old and sounded like an ugly girl name… Though I’ve Facebook stalked her and she’s gorgeous!  Lol

Yes! Dustin. One of my exes ended up being a complete turd and his name was Dustin. A friend’s uncle from my childhood was a creepy user with the same name. Should have put 2 and 2 together 😜

Sometimes I wish Fiance had a different name. The two guys I dated before him both had the same name as him! It’s not THAT that bothers me, but the fact the one before him was an abusive piece of shit… Anyway, now I just say ‘Third time is the charm’!!!

The boy I went on myfirst date with had a horrid name. My last bf had a last name I didn’t like. And yeah, there’s a couple more first names I just will never date. :p
