Poll: great baby name you can't use

There are tons of reasons a name may be off limits for you- an ex friend/bf's name, it's used by someone you know, rhymes with something bad/funny, etc. Name the name and why you can't use it!

  • i don't have any names i am absolutely stuck on but i did like the name Savannah but dh objected b/c that was the name of a famous porn star that committed suicide Tongue Tied so that name went out the window.

    i like the name Kyle but that was my exboyfriends' name so that is not happening either.

  • I really wanted DD's middle name to be Kalamazoo. It's where I went to college and really became the adult that I am. DH was flat against it, but I maintain that it's a way cooler middle name than Gabrielle, which I don't even really like anymore.

    That's awesome!  Dana Kalamazoo has a ring to it- you should just start calling her that and maybe it will catch on!

     For me, I really wanted to name Eva, Lorelei but DH thought it sounded "hick".  I also loved Charlotte with the nickname Lottie after my grandmother but both DH and my mom hated it (and it was her mom!).

  • Graham, b/c it does NOT go with our last name. I keep saying it, hoping it will, but I just don't think it does. Plus, MN is 1 syllable, last name is 1 syllable, it just doesn't flow well at all.

    Hopefully, this one is a girl, cause I can't find any boy names I like.

  • I love the names Caroline and Nathan but DH doesn't like them because they are family member's names. For some reason he is against that!
  • I would love to do Marcus, but my ex is Mark.
  • I loved AJ from when I was a teenager.  Then I met DH, whos name is Anthony so it totally worked out.  But my little sister is having a boy in April and naming her son after her fiance... it will be AJ.  I don't care though, because we are done having kids.

    ETA- I totally forget!  I LOVE the name Vayda and I really wanted to use it for Syd, but DH didn't love it. My sister got a kitten a month ago and named it Vayda. UGH!

  • I wanted to name DS Elijah but we have a friend who has a son named that and he is a BRAT so DH refused to use that name. I also mentioned Michelle for DD's middle name not knowing that FIL cheated on MIL with MIL's best friend Michelle. I knew he cheated with MIL's best friend but didn't know her name was Michelle.

  • We really wanted to name DD Kacey, but my cousin's name is Kaycie, so we decided against it even though we never see her. 

  • I love the name Lucy for a little girl, but my DH's grandma is Lucy and she is an evil evil woman!  I also liked Callie for a girl but my sister named her DD Kayleigh and they are way too close when you say them!

  • Olivia or Oliver.  Our last name starts with an "O".  OO is just too much for me.  Any other letter- ok.  But not two O's.  Brings up too much of a Bond thing- OO7.

  • I love the name Phoenix and actually contemplated using it for DD.  BUT since DS's name is Joaquin we could never use it.
  • Zachary, Alexander and Benjamin. My 3 all time favorite boy names. DH comes from a very large extended family and his cousins have used all 3 of those names on their children. Plus now w/ DD2 being Alexandra, we couldn't have an Alexander too anyway ;)

    Good thing we keep having girls LOL. Though I also love Sophie and DH's cousin named their daughter that..

  • When I was pregnant with DD my Grandfather died and his middle name was Lee. I wanted Elle's middle name to be Leigh but I thought that it would be to confusing when her full name was read out. "L-E" it would make her name sound like Ellie. People already pronounce Elle, Ellie. Its annoying but I figured it would happen.

    My sister named her DD Vayda!  I have only heard of one other person mention possibly using that name (and it was here on the Nest, well on the Baby Name board!).

    I used to love the name Emma, but my parents have a dog named Emma.

  • DH thinks Katherine sounds funny, but I love it... for a boy I really like Greyson/Grayson... but I have an ex Grey and we're still friends with him so another no go...

  • Jacob (nn Jake).  I love the name, but I dated a guy for 2 years with that name and DH would never let me name a child the same name as any of my exes.

    Luke. DH's high school best friend had a little brother with this name and apparently this guy was too annoying to DH for us to ever consider giving our child that name.

  • I like Lauren for a girl, but it is DH's ex's name and Charlie for a boy, but I had a cat named Charlie.
  • Graham, Van, Tanner.  We have friends with all 3 of these names.

    Marley for a girl.  Say it with my last name and you will LOL.  It just will not do.  Oh, and also so many people now associate the name Marley with the dog so....nah.

    Marley and your LN did make me LOL.  She'd marry young just to drop that name.  :)

  • Maddox-DH's cousin already snagged it.

    oh yes, yes it is!

  • Before we thought of Benjamin, I tossed out the idea of naming him Nathan (which was going to be my daughter's name if she were a boy).  I have always liked the name and think 'Nate' for a little boy is just precious.  DH said no because he "Doesn't like names that begin with the letter N.".  It is one of the most bizarre things he has ever said to me.  In the long run, I'm glad he felt this way because Ben's name suits him perfectly and he really isn't a Nathan.
