Is there any names in your family, that are just not used any more because they are "Bad luck names"

Our Family has 2 names 

Pauline- One of my Grandfathers Great-aunts was named this and died at age 20 (horrible story), One of his moms sisters was named this died at age 13 and his sister was named this and died at 23.

Therefore NO MORE Pauline in the family!!!!

 

Daniel.- My uncle died at 26, My cousin at 23, My other cousin at 15ish, My brother at 20. They were all named Daniel.

Therefore NO MORE Daniel in the family

 

Now it's not like anyone is FORBIDDEN on naming their kids Pauline or Daniel. It's just an unspoken rule.

Are there any names like this in your family?

 My husband's family. Gordon. One was murdered and the other one supposedly killed himself by cutting his own throat. So, um, no.

My mom named my brother Richard. She was nervous, as her brother Richard died at 14, and her uncle Richard died in war at 18. She wanted to keep the name going though. My brother was the roughest child, getting into trouble in his teens, but still here at 28. ;)

oo gosh i dunno we'll find out i guess. my sisters name is amy. and my dd's middle name is amy that thought crossed my mind, hope i'm not giving her bad luck (my sister died at 16).


I have a uncle Kenny who was killed at 16 and i have a cousin kenny who was in a bad accident but he's fine now. I think i'd stay away from the name though for those reasons.

but no we dont really have any names liek that otherwise
