Is there a name you refuse to use?

Is there a name out there you just WILL NOT use, no matter what.  Why?

I refuse to use any variation of Maria (Marie, Mary, etc) because it's my grandmothers name and that woman was just an aweful human being.

Yes.  My husband's middle name (and his father's and grandfather's and possibly further back than that) is Eugene and I refuse to use it even though it's tradition.  Instead,, my two boys' middle names arew Ethan and Evan.  It's the closest I'd get without actually going there.

 I would never use a name after a family member.  I don't like Jrs, 3rds, etc.  We reserve middle names to honor special people in our families.

I would also never use any traditional/common/popular name:  John, Anthony, William, Sarah, Jennifer, Emma, Isabella, Aiden, etc.

My grabdma's name, Beulah (not to offend any of those named that or named their kids that).

I loved my grandma, but dislike the name. She hated it too.

Michael/Michelle. It's a common middle name in my hubby's family, and one BIL pitched a royal fit when he found out SIL and another BIL used it as a middle name for THEIR kids. BIL#1 thought that HE has special rights to the name because it's HIS middle name.

And, any other name that's already in use by my 13 nieces and nephews.

I refuse to use Jackson, my step-brother named his son this and I'm not copying him.
