  • Never thought about it. I think it may hamper my ability to take them seriously. Like how the celebrities are naming their kids weird names like north, apple, and blanket. I knew a guy who was named Spoon. In a tribe in Africa it was considered wise to name your child after English words. So his parents called him Spoon. He was a nice guy.

      Shaniqua comes from Shanika which means god is gracious.
      No one is named sharkeisha, that chick's parents combined their names Shamar and Keisha.
      Dominique is french and means "of the lord"...

  • If she's called Shabootyquiqui it's a safe bet she's ghetto, and that's a turn off.

  • If I can't remember their name then yes.
    I prefer simple White names like Michelle, Anna, Veronica and etc.

      hitler ain't special. as mass murderers go, he's mediocre at best.

      The only reason hitler is considered special is because of the cultural lie that JEWS are special. Jews aren't special. therefore neither is hitler.

      I've actually rejected dates by really hot chicks because of her name.. sounds dumb but hey, i AM dumb

  • If it's the same name as an immediate family member, or an ex, yes.

    Or, you know, if her name is Bertha.

      If Bertha has a great rack and a snapping gyro, I won't have any problem. I'll just call her "Sweetie."

  • Some names are a bit funny but they don't turn me off. Or maybe some do actually.
    But it's rare. On the other hand I can find some names attractive,

  • I think only if the name reminds you of a jerk in the past with the same name. The name by itself wouldn't be able to turn me off.

  • My friends rule of thumb has always been "if you can picture yourself moaning their name, then they're a winner."

    But really, unless they have my parent or siblings name, not really.

  • On Gag, sometimes the name is a turn of and no face in a profile also.
    Outside of here, sure, a name can be a total turn off and probably the person is as well.
