A lot of people are saying it matters. Names can be replaced with nicknames, they can also be changed legally. What if you missed out on a great person over a name.

Not being bias in this question, just elaborate if think it matters

  • I hated my ex's name, like to the point that I just never said it around him because it sounded funny to me and I was so afraid I'd mispronounce it. It didn't have any effect on the way I felt for him though :)

  • I associate names with cultures, or with people I've known, or with someone's family background. NAmes reveal so much.

    And it's endlessly fun probing into these issues with the opposite sex.. you never run out of things to talk about

  • I'm really really really shallow when it comes to names. I'm trying to get over it but there are just certain guy's names that I'm just like ughhh noooo. I don't think it would ever keep me from dating someone that was a great person though.

  • If they just had some silly or weird name, I'd just come up with a nickname, I do that for my friends anyway... but if they had the same name as a relative, I wouldn't date them, too weird

  • I clicked matters by mistake. I'd be a bit uncomfortable if I couldn't say his name correctly, but only because I'd feel like I was insulting him.

  • A person's name is what helps to define them, their heritage, their ethnicity it's part of who they are, so yeah it's important.
