When Name Hate Turns to Love

kiss

I used to hate the name Raymond.

Hate, as in hate hate hate.  Maybe it was that creepy kid Raymond from 8th grade.  Maybe it was….oh, who knows.

The point is, if I’d made a list of all 50,000 names on Nameberry in order of how much I liked them, Raymond, would have been down there at number 49,999.

And then, something happened, something equally mysterious.  I began to like Raymond.  Then even to love it.

The nickname Ray is so cute!  Raymond itself classic and distinguished, yet not overused!

I can think of other names for which my former dislike turned somehow to love — Vincent and Leonie, for example — but I’m more interested in knowing which names you once hated that you now love.

And why?
