Thread: Names that don't age well
December 28th, 2012 04:18 AM #36
Other than names more akin to a typical episode of Toddlers and Tiaras, I can't picture a woman named:
Holly (and sadly, Breakfast at Tiffany's didn't change that for me, even though I really like that movie)
Macy (I know a 10-year-old girl named this, so that could be why)
Lolita (but possibly Loleta)
Jessie (not so much this one. I can't picture it on anyone above the age of 30)
I also would find it very difficult to take, say, a lawyer seriously if she had an ultra-whimsical name like Breeze, Lyric, or Passion.~Favorites of the moment~
Girls: Sonya, Caroline, Sakura, Carmilla, Terra
Boys: Conrad, Fain, Marcelo, Serge, Isidoro
Vote on my name list!

There was some discussion of Melissa, which I can see on an adult, but there was a girl who rode my school bus who had that name but went by the nn Missy. She'd have to be about 30 now, so I really hope she's not still called Missy.
Also, someone said -ie names, but I find those in general more acceptable than -i or -ee names. For instance, I can see Jamie on an adult much easier than Mandee or Brandi.
