Lost-Love Names: One that you love but wouldn’t ever use

Lost-Love Names: One that you love but wouldn’t ever use

Is there one particular name that you really like but for some reason would never use?

Today’s Question of the Week was inspired by a thread on our own nameberry forums, initiated by lynxycrowy, which elicited some really interesting choices and even more interesting reasons for their rejection.

We’d love to hear what your example is—a name you really adore but know you’ll never use—and why.

  • Namenapped by someone else?

  • Too trendy?

  • Too irrevocably tied to some pop culture character?

  • Too hard to pronounce?

  • Doesn’t work with sibling’s name?

  • Too far out there?

  • Too much name or too little?

  • Let us know your #1 lost-love name!
