    Angry Names you like but have been "ruined" for you?

    Are there any names that you like, but someone/something has ruined it for you?

    Mine are;

    Adolph- obvious reasons.
    Lolita- child porn.
    Isabella- too popular.
    Nicola- I loathe a girl named Nikki.
    Riley- too unisex.
    Miles- a name of an ex.
    Audra- Audrey is too popular.
    Naomi- "I moan" backwards Nevaeh style.
    Melina- Medical term for blood in stool.
    Timothy- MIGHT use it. But my history with a guy named Tim makes it iffy.

    What are yours?

    Currently reading Lolita and just realizing how many names Nabokov is ruining for me. Now all I think of when I hear Lola, Dolores, Lo or Lolita is a man being obsessed with a twelve year old (or so) girl. It's good book though

    Under normal circumstances, I think Twilight would have ruined Isabella (and Bella) for me, but when I was allowed to choose my sisters name back in 2002, I chose Isabella and therefore it feels somewhat less Twilight-y for me. It chose it before it was cool

    Laura, which as a name I loved until I met someone with that name who was very ... unpleasant.

    Esme, because of Twilight.
