Madeleine when I was younger. Used to be #1 on my lists! But the combination of the McCanns and an evil boyfriend-stealing b!tch I happen to know has made the name unusable for me. Had a little look at our stats and it fell 68 places between 2007-2008. That McCann association is very strong I think.
I'd quite happily use India if I loved it enough. But if that's deemed offensive to people, I don't see why Jordan, Israel, Scotland, Ireland, Kenya, America, Britain, Asia, Africa, Boston, Dakota, China etc aren't also offensive.
And as a Cornishwoman, I find the name Devon minorly offensive

My name is Tara and I wasn't named for Gone With The Wind, but I always thought that the concept of being named after a SLAVE PLANTATION & romanticized version of the old south would be kind of....racist-ish. But it seems like so many people love that movie so maybe I was the only one that read into it being a weird story???
Anyways I always felt a little strange when people said, "Oh like Gone With The Wind!" about my name. I happen to be named after a Soap Opera character!

I really like Tarot (pronounced Tarrow) for a girl, and Pagan for a boy (although, surprisingly, it sounds pretty trendy, so I am falling out of 'like' with that one). Lucifer SOUNDS beautiful, and if I put myself out of the associations I love the SOUND of Harlet for a girl. Meh. I also really like Saoirse (with the Sare-sha pronunciation) but I'm not digging the political connotation. I also really liked Cohen until I found out it had the religious ties that it did. No idea!
