What are some of the names that you would never use on a child?



I'll start -- I would never use Chastity (or any variant, such as Chasity or Chasidy).

How about you?

Chastity...I totally have to agree with you, Nancy. Don't like it either.

I also don't like Charity, Liberty, or Destiny. There are quite a few of the more popular baby names that I'd never use for my own child. One of the popular boys names that I don't like is Joshua. Sadly, that is one of my nephews names so I have to hear it every time he comes to visit.

May I suggest my name, Duane. It has been a curse to me, especially as a kid. It is always a guessing game as to how it gets spelled -- Dwayne, Dewayne, Duwayne, Dewain, Dwaine or seemingly a thousand other variants. Don't put your child through this. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "The Dwain in spain falls mainly on the plains" on the playground. frown frown I am 40 now and I STILL get mail addressed to all variants of my name sent to me.

You'll make his life a lot better if you give him a name that has very little chance of being misspelled.

Cecil, cyril, horace, albert, cicilia, tyler, edgar, egbert athalstan, stanley, justin, gertrude, sidney, ethelbert, chastity, destiny, sky anyother day or month, cagney to name a few! Oh and ethel, ida, edna, flora, mavis.

Recently there was publicity here because some couple somewhere wanted to call their child 4sure (oh yes, really) and when refused they named him superman! Poor lad! Abit like bob geldofs eldest, fifi trixibell, or another celebs: betty kitten! UHHHH!
I know that Starship (i think thats their name) band singer called her daughter god.

I'm sorry to hear about your experiences, Duane. Your name is a tricky one -- there isn't a "standard" spelling, really, but there are a ton of equally popular variations. If it makes you feel any better, my mom's name, Elisa, is constantly being mangled (both on paper and out loud).
