    One name? I have a list of nearly 300-500! My husband and I made the decision to not use any of our former students' names, which is quite a diverse list.

    I'd have to agree with Nell, though, about Elvis. My husband almost had that as part of his name since his father was a huge Elvis fan, but his parents settled on Presley as a middle name instead.

    One name that is becoming popular now that I don't really like is Greyson or Grayson. To me, it's too connected too Fifty Shades of Grey, and I don't think I'd want to think of that every time I used my child's name!

    Probably any of the names that celebrities use - apple, buddy bear, pilot inspektor, tu morrow... I mean, come on! Those poor kids!

    Also, Jesus, Richard, Keith, Aimee, Barbara, Cheryl, anything that sounds like a stripper or hooker.

    A better question would be what names WOULD I consider

    There are so many names I would never even consider, most of them consist of food.  Apple, Peach, Sugar, anything like that is a definate NO!  I would never name my child after a celebrity either as they have a tendency to come and go.  I honestly stick with family names or something I have loved for a long time (and of course my husband agreed with).  I have an IzaBella, a Triniy and a Benjamin.  Their names so fit them and I couldn't have chosen any better!

    This was a loaded question when I was married to my ex husband whose last name was Mann. We had the worst time thinking of names.

    I considered Harrison for one of our sons, but Harry Mann as a nickname would've been horrible. (hairy man)

    As a joke, we always threw around to friends the possiblities of:
    Fire Mann
    Bat Mann
    Wo Mann

    Or a girl:
    Ida Mann

    I would never name a child after me, or use Jr. or III, etc. Each human is unique. He should have a unique identification. I have a son. My wife wanted to name him after me, with a different middle name. I said I wanted the child, who is now a man, to have his own name and identity. We came to agree.
