    Pandora...mildly name related

    I know a lot of people on her like Pandora so I thought I'd share the latest instance of it being used. They recently discovered new viruses, the largest ever discovered, and named them Pandora.

    I just thought it was interesting. Would this ruin the name for any of you?

    I wasn't crazy about Pandora before this news so it only taints it even further. Pandora's box and the jewellery brand aren't great associations for me either.
    All the best,

    Pandora's box is why I don't like the name. Otherwise, it would be pretty. Well, maybe I'd avoid it for the internet radio too (but probably not)

    Pandora's box also kills it for me but this alone would give me pause. In a few years, who is to say this isn't going to be something everyone talks about and associates with death and illness? No thanks, although Pandora is lovely. It's a shame.

    I never liked Pandora because of the Pandora's box thing. This name is too heavy and tainted for a child.
