The family name you’re NOT going to pass down…

The family name you’re NOT going to pass down…

Weird Uncle Sebastian.  Nice name, but not exactly the kind of guy we want our baby to emulate.

Grandma Hortense — sweet lady, yet that name….no.

It may be a name that’s important in your family but that you just can’t bear to foist on a newborn baby.  Or maybe it’s  a name you like of a relative you don’t.  But  some family names simply don’t make the list as baby names.

What name from your family are you NOT going to pass down to a child?

And if you feel like sharing, why are they out of consideration?
