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.1
