    I really like the name Mara, but it means "bitter". I still think I would consider it regardless of the negative meaning, but still. I'd feel bad giving that name to my daughter.

    I like the idea of calling a girl Argentina. It sounds really pretty to me, and I'd love to visit the country sometime. And it is an real name - there was an Argentine actress called Argentina Brunetti. However, a lot of other people don't like it, both because it's so widely recognised as a place name and because of the unpleasant association with the Falklands War. (Or the Malvinas War, if you prefer...) I also quite like America, but couldn't use it for similar reasons. Or Persia, with all this sabre-rattling towards Iran going on.

    I love Lolita, both the name and the book, but the associations make it too unsavoury for me to use.

    This one wouldn't be as much offensive as it would be stupid. Malheureuse (or the male form 'Malheureux') is one of my favourite words and whenever I say it out loud, I think of what a great girls name it would be (especially with the nickname "Mal"). However, naming a child "miserable" is too much of a stretch for me

    I like the name Jezebel, but like others said, it has evil connections, so I'll probably never use it. Same goes for Delilah.

    My daughter's name is Pandora Hope. I call her Panda, Panda bear, and Panda-roo . I have gotten compliments and criticism.... I can see it either way but as a parent I will raise her to be proud of her nontraditional name and own it. Originally her name was not intended to be linked to the myth but I just could not find a more fitting middle name <3 it was perfect (to me)
