Minette - I think its cute and know like 3 cats with the name (it means kitten or more accurately the other word that starts with a "p") but the phrase "faire minette" is a french term for oral sex....so it's not exactly used for people anymore :/ but it was in a nameberry blog post lol
@alecto Odessa is also a small town in Texas lol
I worked in social services for awhile and dealt with a girl who named her daughter Aryana because of the Aryan implication Im not a fan of the name, it's nms but that definitely put me off of it and similar names forever.

The only one I can think of is Arienne. I wouldn't use it as I prefer Arianne, but I really do love Arienne, too. I'm afraid everyone would go straight to Aryan, though, which is unfortunate! I think it's just stunning (and I commend the momma on here who used it!).
If they didn't have the associations they did, I would love to love Delilah and Lilith. They just hold too many negative images for me, but if they were gone, I'm sure I would love them! I love the nns Lily and Lila, too, so it would be a win. If the Biblical/Jewish associations weren't so strong. As it is, my Christian faith means everything to me, and I can't even imagine loving them, much less using them. They both have extremely negative connotations for me.Ashley

Columbine Odessa is on my top 20 and it's moving up. I just love the name and flower and think part of the healing process is to un-taboo the name.
Other than Columbine, I am freaking having a love affair with the name Jocasta, but people always associate the name with the story of Oedipus. Honestly though, I don't care. I would use Jocasta and I would use Columbine.

I love the names Shylock (the back guy in a Shakespeare) and Harlot (whore), but I wouldn't be afraid to use them. The child will be his/her own self and can change people's perception of the name if necessary. I'm a girl named after the freaking greek god of sex. Not even the goddess, and it doesn't affect me at all. Some people are more sensitive to that though.

Apparently it's a brand of contraceptive somewhere. All I know is that it's been one of my favourite names since I was a child and now I don't know if I can use it.Tallulah, Persephone, Eris, Saskia, Natasha, Zhanna, Matthias, Andreas, Dean, Isaac, Jude, Christopher, Caleb, Victor, Fabian, Skyler, Dexter, Cecily, Alannah, Savannah, Hester, Britta, Xanthe, Temperence, Violetta, Anton, Anatoly, Maksym, Ilya, Raphael, Gabriel, Xanthe, Carmen, Electra, Dahlia.
