Are there certain normal names that you wouldn't name your child because they remind you of something bad?

For example:

Hurricane Katrina

I actually like the name Katrina and wouldn't let the hurricane stop me from using it.

There are some names that I just wouldn't use though. Such as:

Adolph...
Saddam..
Osama......

lol. I think those names may be ruined for well over a century if not more.

I could name a child the following names:

Annie - (My sisters name)
Michael - Too common
Tiffany - Too Airheady
Madeline - Too Prudy
Patrick/Patricia - I know too many people named Pat
Karen - Well that is personal


I think there are tons more...

I would likely name one of my sons George simply because that name has been in my family for generations.

Michael, just because it seems every other guy is named Mike.

Edit: As far as things that are bad, about the same as you. But then I'd probably never consider naming my kids those names anyway.

Now I will never name my kid SwiftStrike.. That name is ruined for me.
LOL! That's awesome. Hopefully you weren't considering that name...

I'm actually 99% sure that this exact scenario came up in another thread. About naming a kid SwiftStrike.

First off it's Swiftstrike.

Second I can't think of anyone naming their kid Swiftstrike.

Third I will give my son the middle name Swiftstrike.
