    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.

    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.

    There are a few names that I can't stand from most the jocks I knew in high school, I'm not taking any chances of bringing another knickleheaded fool into this world to just be a dick.

    Brian
    Branden
    Jason
    Douchbag Darren - well thats what we called him atleast.
