Jezebel or Judas..........they were wicked people in the Bible!
I see so many families naming their new baby girl "Nevaeh". This is heaven spelled backwards. It's my belief that the opposite of any word has to be negative. For Christians it would definitely be a symbol of satan and the dark side.
The opposite of dark is light? Is that negative? Maybe in photographic development, i dunno as I have never created photo negatives before. Anyway. I agree it i s a silly name. My guess "Heaven" sounded like a hippie at best or stripper at worst but the parents like the sentiment behind it. If you can't name your kid the name you want and have them taken seriously, move on. Likewise if it is in the top 20 names skip it. Aside from any name in the "tops" list I'd never name a kid a made up name.
I've always really liked this name, but I've been afraid of the connotation. Remedy. I think it sounds absolutely beautiful, but it also sounds like she was the answer to a problem, or like we were trying to make her the answer to our relationship problems, or something. I've just always thought that the word in itself sounds so beautiful, and it would make a great name, if only it could mean something more!
Accepting we're not going to have any new offspring, in theory 'Bartholomew' is a no-no in this house. The surname of the previous owners of our property was Bartholomew (also a first name in past use), and they left countless flaws in their 'DIY' jobs that we keep finding hard to put right!
Damien or Adolf...both negatively associated names, even if the meanings themselves are bad (Damien or Damon is greek and means "to tame or subdue") but because of the Omen it has a negative association, although to me personally, it sounds so close to Demon anyway that I would just never name my child that no matter how its spelled. Adolf means "noble wolf" but obviously has the negative association with Hitler so I'd never use that either.
I came across quite a few Adolfs when I worked in Vienna back in the mid-60's, born well before Hitler came to power in the early 30's. I don't think the name was used much over there since WWII. There are quite a few pseudo-Nazis there nevertheless.
I know this is old, but I just thought I would put in something.
I could never name my child Michael. There are just too many in my family. I have uncles named Michael, cousins named Michael, my dad's name is Michael, my brother's name is Michael, half the time my dad introduces himself to a guy that guy's name happens to be Michael. There are just too many of them in existence already!
