I'm going to say that I understand that people aren't likely to say anything out right bad to his face, but the question was "have they had bad experiences" and the answer was no.
And also, to the person saying he picked them to be edgy and alternative, no. He picked them for his religious preferences and feel that if Christians can named their children biblical names and name them Emmanuel or whatever, and pagans can use Athena etc, then as a Luciferian Satanist, why shouldn't he be allowed to use the name Lucifer without people bothering him about it?
So, again, to answer the question, no he hasn't had many outright bad experiences, but he is perfectly aware that most people don't approve of his religion or his religious naming style.Mother, Hellenic Pagan Priestess, and Resident Greek name expert ^_^ Call me Dantea or Remy

I don't give a damn about anyone's religion (unless they're trying to force it on me - legally or otherwise) but I do think that is poor reasoning for naming a child Lucifer. Regardless of him being a Satanist or not, Lucifer has strong negative connotations to most of the English speaking world and his poor child is going to have to deal with that. Emmanuel and Athena both have a history of use that has, so to speak, blunted the very religious feel of the name. Lucifer does not have the same kind of history or frequency of use that those two examples have and I believe that is for a very good reason. I just can't understand, no matter your religion, choosing a name that most people are going to have a big negative assocation with. :/cassia | vivian | flora

Lucifer is just a cruel thing to do. It's akin to naming them Evil or something.

Hrm...I don't know anyone with "forbidden" names. I know an Athena, but someone pointed out that's blunted by use. No one ever gave her troubles about it. Pandora I don't mind; it really is pretty and Dora is always a nn option if it becomes a problem. Lucifer...I have mixed feelings on. I wouldn't name my kid Satan, but why should a perfectly good name be associated with the devil? And as others like Athena are "blunted by use," I'm sure using "forbidden" names more will, by logic, make them less forbidden.Proud author of Kissimmee, Orlando, Mary, Adam, Mississippi, Micah, Georgette, Evelyn, Diane, Millicent, Maybeline, Prudence and so many many more
