Has a name been ruined for you?

Is there a person from your past that's hurt you in any way, or done something so horrible that every time you hear that (their) name in any context, it gives you negative feelings?
Two names that have been "ruined" for me are Jacob (or Jake) and George.

  • Yeah. There's one girl's name that has been ruined for me. She used to bully me pretty badly when I was a kid, she was all about manipulating people and freezing others out, yet everyone adored her despite knowing that she talked a lot of shit behind everyone's backs. I even ran home from school once because she successfully managed to get all of my friends to stand in a half-circle around me while mocking me.
    Another girl bullied me too, but her name is so common that I can't really be affected by it, you know. Since I know a lot of other girls with that name and they're nice. But I'm not naming my hypothetical daughter that, anytime soon.

  • Veronica.

    That's my sisters name. I just can't date any girl named Veronica lol. Kinda sucks, because I've met a few that were hot, who didn't understand why I didn't like them back in the same way. It's just a mental thing for me. Can't imagine calling out her name in bed. Would immediately kill my boner. I don't want to think about my mom or my sister in the bedroom.

  • Certain letters have been. I noticed a pattern of C's and K's in the women I've dated so I don't date girls with names that start with those letters.

  • My long distance exe's name was Makaela. She cheated on me, broke up with me out of guilt, I begged for her back, and she broke up with me later because she couldn't take the distance anymore.

    It was a really bad experience, but it still hasn't ruined the name for me. I've always liked the name, even before I dated her, and I still do after dating her.

    The most frustrating thing is that girls and guys are challenged Alex so I have more of a chance of hearing that name.
