How much vs. does the meaning vs. of a name matter???

I noticed a poll for Amelia today, and someone mentioned it was a medical term for being born without a limb, and I looked it up, and it was! I found a blog about names with " bad meanings", some were funny like Kennedy ( deformed head), or Cameron ( crooked nose). Others were a little more serious, like Mallory, which means bad faith. I definitely looked at meanings when I named my children, but I am just curious, how much emphasis do you put on the meaning of the name? Would you choose a name with a "bad meaning?"

It's our first child, and she's a girl. Our last name is Watson. I was going for Suzanna Adelle for a while, but grew not to like it. I've also liked the names Skyler Dean and Stormy Kay in the past, but decided against them. Is there any way you can help?
Baby Name Genie:
With names like Skyler and Stormy, I’m seeing a definite meteorological theme here. Not to rain on your parade, but the forecast shows a different name for your daughter. Name her Sadie Joy for a baby girl with a sunny disposition.
