What are your favorite names you can't use

Whether because it's your nephew's name, your DH rejected it, your friend miscarried a baby with that name, your pet has the name, whatever.

Mine are Sadie, Henry, and Graham.

    Vivienne/Vivian - DH has an aunt with this name, and we aren't close with them at all. I just feel it would be weird to use such a "close" relative's name you are not close with. That being said I have an aunt named Ruth, and we are close with her. But I feel it might be weird to use her name. We wouldn't necessarily be honoring her, but I feel like her 3 daughters might find it weird that I used her name...

  • Mitchell... it's my cousin's son's name.

    Jefferson as a MN.    It's a family name with historical significance.  It was my grandmother's maiden name and we're direct decendants of the president.  Thought it'd be cool but DH vetoed it.

  • Anais is the only one that really made me a little sad. My husband just didn't like it, but it wasn't that a big of a deal to me. 

    I don't have any nieces or nephews (DH and I are the oldest, and the first married or in a real relationship in both of our families) and I don't have any friends that have been pregnant.

    Forrest - stupid Forrest Gump

    Lol. I actually have a nephew named Forest, and the Forrest Gump association rarely comes up (to our surprise). He seems to own the name in everyone's minds. Maybe one day it will work out? :)

    For me:

    Julia and variants of Julia

    Elise

    Benjamin

    Celine

    Felicity

    August

    Arthur

    Vincent
