    I think it depends more on whether the association makes you fall out of love with the new, rather than what anyone else, other than the other parent, thinks. The association with the reality show star probably varies based on the style of the show. A name like Kourtney will b
    Probably have associations with the Kardashians for a long time, since it's a long running show. However, the name of a person from Love Island will likely loose its association, since the people appear for one season and don't return.

    Thankyou everyone for your advice. I'm definitely more 80/20 now. It's so annoying when you find a name you love then people put you off of it. I'm not pregnant so hopefully by the time it happens again the z lister would have disappeared a bit.

    Chopette. Use Anastasia it's a beautiful name , my first thought was the princess. To be fair if watched 50 shades and theres nothing wrong with Anastasia in it shes more known by Anna, shes beautiful and it isn't seedy it's actually got a nice storyline to it.

    Iv seen in your tag line thing your liking Cove and Hawthorne for your next child. I love Cove at the moment I think it's so beautiful but masculine.

    I don't have any kids yet, but I really love the combination Natalie Claire and don't know if I'll feel comfortable using it because there is a girl I knew throughout college who didn't particularly care for me with that exact combo. It's a perfect storm of a name because we're both Jewish and this would get us one grandfather each without having to find an English name for a boy to go with his Pop's challenging Hebrew name. I feel like I'll probably be over it in 6-10 years when I'm actually ready to have a kid, but it's annoying now.

    It would have to be a really strong negative association for me to kick a name that I really like.

    I agree with everyone who encouraged you to go for it. For me, the association would have to be really egregious to get me to drop my favorite name.

    Marnie is lovely.
