I'd say the difference between Jude/Judas was comparable to the difference between Adolph/Randolph ie they sound similar bit are totally seperate names with very different associations.
I know both a Dick (aged 70) and a Lolita (aged 60), neither has a problem with their name but that might be generational. Lolita is nn Lolly. Hopefully Bridget is OK as it's my daughter's middle name! I wouldn't use any of the others though, as another poster said, so many other names out there...

I suppose no name is familiar but here are my opinions: IMO all of the biblical bad guy names are too big a burden to use. I would worry about people judging the child, associating it with negative things and giving them grief or mocking them behind their back. Iirc @dante knows a little lucifer and said the boy has no problems with his name so who knows.
Bridget - never heard anything bad about this name
Sambo - no way and hell and for what it's worth, Sambo is not just a nickname for Samuel, the racist term comes from the word "Zambo" it's origins are race related.
Adolf - too negative to be used but Adolph is not unheard of in Hispanic communities and was in the top 1000 until the 1970's so I guess to some degree the name is acceptable since Adolph/Adolf sound the same.
Royal titles such as king and princess - tacky IMO but not forbidden
Cohen - imo not usable, I don't understand how some peopl justify it knowing its offensive. It seems tacky and ignorant.
Dick and Lolita - technically usable but I wouldn't because of the sexual imagery it brings up for a lot of people
Jemima - not usable in the states. I would definitely question an American who used the name, although it would be more for stupidity than racism. It's a hurtful term towards Blacks, you're not going to be able to reclaim it as a stylish name without looking foolish IMO. Plus it's a syrup so there's that.Josephine Athénaïs - Josephine Ivy - Myriam Athénaïs - Vivienne Josephine

I really think that it depends on your family heritage a lot. If you are Kenyan and love Adolf/Adolph I think you'd get weird looks but could get away with it. For someone like me with strong German heritage I think it would be akin to just political suicide.
But.... and this is the one where I know I'm not only opening a can of worms but pouring them all over me.
I LOVE Lucifer. Always have, always will. I love the meaning the sound and yes, partially that it's forbidden. I would never use it on a child though, mostly because even if we want to name our children in a vacuum we have to acknowledge that this is not possible....if my husbands has no vote, then....
