Not even the goddess, and it doesn't affect me at all. Some people are more sensitive to that though.
    Shylock was a Jewish man in the Merchant of Venice, Othello was the black one

    I adore India but I couldn't bring myself to use it. Too much awful history.

    DP and I love Pagan for a girl, just for the sound, but the poor child would suffer so much from ignorant people's reactions, it's not worth it.

    I adore Lolita (:

    It's so sad that it has such bad connections, both with the novel and it's more modern associations. Shame. It sounds so spunky and sweet. Lola isn't half as pretty.

    Jezebel too

    I agree with Lolita! Such a lovely name. And the way it is described in the novel as "lyrical" and "lilting" makes me love it more. Too bad.

    I agree also with Violante. What a pretty sound, but yes, way too close to "violence"
