Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

Honestly I dodged Megan twice. My wife loves the name. I also ducked Elizabeth. On the other hand we both liked Bleys.
One of my Daughters is named after a Great Great Aunt. But we never even considered using my Paternal Grandmothers name, Lois.
Fortunately for the world I'm out of the kid naming business now.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

My favorites are names that children call someone because they can't yet pronounce all the sounds yet. Then as adults we adopt those names for each other because they are born out of innocence.

One of my best high school Friends was named Jay. His little niece could not pronounce it correctly and called him Fay. Once news of that spread, no one ever called him Jay again!

Theophilus. Fortunately, it was her middle name. Even so, once the kids at school found out, she got teased relentlessly.

Re: First names you would never call a child of yours

I think my grandmother had one of the worst girl names I've ever heard, as a matter of fact, never heard anyone else with the same name. Her name was Arkie? Go figure.

Jesus

Went to school with a boy with that name. You can imagine the reactions.

Even if I don't get likes for it, I'm still going to say it.

My mother's given name was Safronia, and she was affectionately referred to as "Fronia." By the way she absolutely abhorred it!

She always intoned that the local country farmers had named their work mules with better sounding names than she was given!

Bless her heart!
