This refers to names that make you feel emotion. Like if a strong memory resurfaces with the name. For example, when i hear the name "Chris" i feel fear and anger and sadness.

  • Yeah Mathew, he was my physical, mental, and sexual abuser.

    Also Lee is my fathers middle name he went by, he and my mom split cause he did lots of drugs and beat her, she would have killed herself if it wasn’t for me and my sister.

  • Adam. It’s the name of a rapist that got away with everything he did and it makes me feel physically sick.

    • I voted no, but then that name triggered me. That was the name of my sister's ex. He told my grandmother he was obsessed with me (I was 16 and he was in his 20s when they met). Yeah... that name still makes me cringe

  • I could name few people but my belief in karma will get my ex that hurt me saying I was there for company and not an actual relationship hurt, my old bullies I hope karma hits them where they deserve it making fun of my heritage, and family
