    Are there too many bad associations with Bristol?

    Can you over come the association with The Palin's and NASCAR/Tennessee?

    I don't understand the obsession with the Palins. Does the average person even know the names of Sarah Palin's family? I highly doubt it. I don't know about the NASCAR/TN connection, so a no on that one too.

    Does everyone know Sarah Palin's kids? no A lot of people couldn't name them for anything. Can they name every single one? no
    Does everyone know Bristol Palin? yes Most of my friends couldn't tell you much about the other four. Willow has lots of other associations. Piper has Charmed and is not as well known. Bristol is easily the most of famous of the Palin children. When her mother's career took off, everyone knew about this daughter with an odd name who was pregnant. She, Bristol, then went on to Dancing with The Stars which quite a few people watch. She also is quite outspoken politically.

    I don't watch NASCAR/Tennessee so I don't know a connection.

    The biggest problem (in my opinion) is not so much the Palin connection as it being seen with only the Palin connection. If there were other Bristols out there, it would help the name, but right now that (where I live) the only connection a lot of people have with the name.

    I like this name, so I can understand why you would like, but do expect the Palin thing to come up. Also it sounds like Chrystal/Krystal. I have a friend named Krystal who is a nice girl.

    Good Luck!

    Aside from the Palin daughter, it's not an attractive name. It sounds too close to bristle...what an animal does when there's danger.
