What is a name you would NEVER name your child?

There are many names with stigmas attached to them such as Bertha: most people think of a heavier woman having this name, or Fabio: for obviously Fabio, or Micheal: because you just can't stand the name... What name would you NEVER name your child?

  • Any name that implies a virtue - like Charity, Chastity, Faith, Hope, Joy, Peace, etc. I have know people by all of those names and none of them had the qualities their names implied.

  • Amber, Dakota, Brittany, anything misspelled, any name that sounds like a soap opera character, anything with an apostrophe in it, any name that sounds like a dumb kid, or Nevaeh.

  • Anything with a unique spelling(i.e. misspelled) or the following names: Bertha, Beulah, Bubba, Homer, Nevaeh and Harry-I had a cousin names Harry-he was repulsive and dangerous-so now I can't stand the name.

  • Stanley & Herbert.

    I just can't imagine looking down at a sweet baby face and saying "You look like Herbert".
