    Minorly Offensive Names You Love (but can't use)

    Have you ever found a beautiful name but were unable to admit that it was your favourite to other people because you'd seem like a racist/sadist/bigot/insert-unpleasant-name? Here you can share your love of tainted names with other people who appreciate that names should always be given a second chance.

    I personally love Columbine. It's floral without being prissy, French without being frilly, a little Catherine and a little Lillian. And the upside is, no one else would have it!

    I like Allegra, Catrina, Romeo, and Dixie. Obviously can't use them.

    I know both an Arian and an Ivori, and they both wear their names well, but I do admit I did think about the word aryan when I first met him. Also I have always wondered about Ivori. Her father was black, but very light skinned and her mother was white. Ivori, herself, just looks white... hmm.

    I know an Aaryn. He's indian, and it fits him.
    I love Biddy as a nm for Elizabeth, but the old biddy association is what most people would think.

    I like Cain/Cane, Katrina (which I'm not American so it's still workable), Arian on a boy (I'm an Aries and we're called Arians, so it's got that connotation to me, but you know..the whole Aryan thing), Delilah.
