    The names you can never use

    There's some names out there.. well not names but words, places, and things that sound attractive as a name that you probably can never bestow upon a child. What are your favorite (usually horrid) things that sound good as names but can't be names?

    Mine are:

    Morphine
    Herione
    Harlot
    Malaria
    Hell
    Tachycardia
    Nausea
    Despair
    Envy
    Murder
    Fetus
    Psoriasis
    Flu
    Dizzy
    Fluoxetine
    Xanax
    Yep. Those would never work. It honestly makes me laugh at the thought of some mother yelling "Fetus, get over here right now"! at the playground. Oh myyy <3 I'll just stick with Felix xD
    What about you?

    Hahaha, I think about these too! Mostly diseases and medical terms like Embryo, Rubella, Malaria & Chlamydia. Hell is a good one! So is Morphine, Harlot & Envy.

    Others:
    Pope
    Fever
    Celebrity
    Paper
    Envelope (Penelope-esque)
    Illness
    Burden
    Slavery
    Mineral
    Cancer
    Melancholia - This one's my favourite
    Cholera
    Polio
    Influenza
    Cardio

    I've thought about this for quite a while but these are the only ones I can list off the top of my head. Hopefully I'll be able to think of more
