Name your child Delilah, or Jezebel, or any other name with negative connotations? ETA Update

If so, why? Would you not care about the stigma attached?

There is a little girl at daycare whose name is Jezebel Delilah. I couldn't even believe it.....

OK, so to be fair to the boys, how about Lucifer, or Adolf?

ETA - and for those that are not sure why those names might be "bad". Delilah was a whore, and a liar. Jezebel was also a tramp, and a murderer.

And for those that say, "I don't believe the bible", archeological excavations have unearthed evidence of the story of Samson & Delilah actually happened. So, it's not just a fairytale.

I wouldn't name anyone Jezebel, but Delilah is fine.

I think most names are just that - names. They were someone else's name before they had any kind of stigma attached.

Now, naming your kid something like Adolf Hitler ____ is just stupid.

It only affects those who believe in the bible, otherwise they are just names.
