Names w/ negative meanings or associations?

I have a bunch of names I would never use because of bad experience with people that I've met who've had that name. The biggest one for me is probably Emma, which is a shame because I think it's very sweet and adorable, but every girl I've met named Emma has always been very catty and rude, it also happens to be the name of my best friend's sister so I probably wouldn't use it for that reason anyways.

I generally try to not get too caught up with the meaning of names. I'm more likely to balk at associations with people (or pets, as you mentioned) that I've known, or that have a terrible connotation that everybody will make (like Adolf). If there was a name that I was on the fence about, a negative meaning might make me decide not to use it, but for names that I love the look and sound of, I don't let a potentially negative meaning get in the way.

One of the biggest ones for me is the name, Kayla. Every Kayla that I've ever known is rude and petty. Also the name Lily. There is a Lily and a Lilly in my family already. I honestly would still use it, but it would just get so confusing. Sucks because I've liked that name before there were any Lily's. Also the name Emily. There were at least 10 Emily's in my high school class/year and I swear in elementary school there were always at least 2 Emily's in my class.
