These are great! I've nodded my head in agreement with many of them, but the ones i can remember really thinking of are
Melanoma (i've had it, and one of my first thoughts upon diagnosis was that it didn't SOUND bad at all. melaaaanoooomaaaa)
Calamity is so cute
All the medication ones, especially Mirena (BF has randomly said he thinks it'd be a pretty name, and he NEVER talks names!), Lunesta, Lyrica, Ambien
Rugby (a little over the top)
I have known a Margarita, too, and only thought of the drink even at a young age. But it is a pretty sound. Mimosa i didn't even realize was a real name, and whenever i see it mentioned on the boards i kind of cringe... Makes me think of hungover sunday brunches ;)
I work in a company that also employs a Tequila and a Brandy... and don't care for those associations with the alcohol either. But i do think Tequila has a nice ring to it.
Same with Jameson... too much like the whiskey.
Guinness is an animal name IMO but a nice sound.
I thought I was the only one who thought like this...!
Minty (Weird, but I love the word)
That's all I can think of atm.
Ok Minty is adorable!!! I picture a bubbly, sweet little girl :)
This was really fun to read.
I have a good friend named Calamity, and although I would never name my kid that, she is gorgeous and wears it well!
This thread is rather interesting.
I think Catheter has a nice sound...but how awful is that!?
I second Malaria, Mirena, Listen, Claritin, Perrier, Chlamydia, Oasis, Diarrhea (it's really too bad about the meaning, and I agree with anna.bliss, bad things should not have pretty names!), Sequel, Clever (Actually quite like the sound of this one), Breeze, Galaxy, Cobalt, Solar, Velvet, Cricket, Vision, Envy (Really like this one) and Lorem. (phew, that's a lot) Some that I like:
Seven (love the sound, really wishing it was an acceptable name outside of dystopian future novels)
I don't know why, but the word Plum always pulled me to it. Sadly it's not really a good name. Bourbon would be a cute boys name if it wasn't a drink and Xerox would be an adorable name for a boy. Potpourri is kinda cute. Crest is, again, kinda cute. Infusion or just Fusion for a girl. Charmin but that's a toilet paper brand. Kotex, but that speaks for itself. Santa would be a very cute name, its not inappropriate its just a little weird of a name. Porcelain would be a good boys name. Grainite and Navy would be cute boys names. Thats all i can think of. I have kinda weird tastes in names:)
