Would you name your baby Lucifer?

My husband suggested this to me and at first I thought he was joking. but then he got upset when I said I didn't like because he's insisting it's a 'cool name'. So now I feel bad b/c I didn't realize he was serious. Which, it's not an UGLY name... but... we are Roman Catholic... I don't care for the name as far as MY child goes, and I doubt it would go over well with family or at church.

  • I don't think you have to be religious to dislike that name... I mean, I don't believe in Santa Claus either, but I still wouldn't name my kid Kris Kringle, know what I mean? I don't see how Lucifer could be associated with ANYTHING positive, period.

  • I am not a religious person either, and I don't think it is a good name for a child.. He will have some many problems in school...There are other cool names out there Lucifer, not one of them!

  • No. I'm not particularily religious, and I still wouldn't do it. I just can't imagine a child going through life named Lucifer. I do know about husbands and crazy names--mine was caught up on the name Beowulf for a while. Just keep saying that you don't think it's the right name for your son and hope that eventually he'll move on (or you'll come up with a great name that he'll love way more than Lucifer).

  • We call our DD Lucy, Lucifer sometimes as a pet name/ term of endearment but I don't actually think I would name my kid that even though it is a nice name. Doesn't it mean "light bringer" or something to that effect?
