    Salem: Is it really as bad as I think it is?

    I recently came across a baby named Salem. Personally I cannot get over the Witch Trail's association. Was wondering what you Berries thought?

    I agree, it definitely doesn't have the best associations. I've heard worse, but I do immediately think of the Witch Trials, and I don't think the sound is very feminine or appealing at all.

    I think of Sabrina the Teenage Witch too, and the Salem witch trials second. I don't like it as a name for a baby at all. For a cat, I'd use it.

    I have the same reaction...better for a cat than a person.
