I think of Kurt Cobain when I think of Aberdeen, as that was the name of his hometown in Washington. After reading a biography written about Kurt and understanding how tumultuous his life in Aberdeen was, it's a haunting, somber name to me.

Pronounced ab-ur-DEEN, stress on the last syllable. Wouldn't use it as a name.

Theosmum Says:


Aberdeen is a oil city in Scotland, and not a particularly pretty place; it is famous for its bad weather and bad tempered citizens.
