It's different if you have a bad association with a person, for example, I couldn't use Helen because of a college roommate who was a nightmare, but to discard a name because a poor, socially awkward kid in your school had it is horrible!
    I think you're taking it the wrong way.
    Also, just because a kid is popular doesn't mean their a cheerleader or a jock, nor does being unpopular mean that they aren't a cheerleader or a jock.

    OP did say that it was the way the kid was treated that affected her perception on the name. I wouldn't name my child something that brought up a negative perception either. But that's just me.

    No, not at all. I think I outgrew perceptions of peoples names from high school a few years after I graduated.

    Jasmine, Lucy

    Also I LOVE but could never use Stella, it's such a beautiful name, but I read two books in a row last year where a little girl called Stella met an untimely end

    Tammy and April
    I had issues with more than one girl named Tammy and an awful roommate named April
    The funny thing is, these are the names of my 2 closest friends now! LOL
