    AND, I of course love thinking of baby names even though that is a VERY far in the future thing for me because I'm still young!

I was just wondering if you had any names that automatically gave you the wrong idea about someone or brought a very wrong thought to your mind.

One for me would be Naomi (even though I love it!) because when I see it I think "I Moan" backwards.

Sorry if this isn't interesting, I was just wondering! LOL.

"xana" (sha.nah) is a dirty word in Portuguese

  • Interests:I LOVE reading. I'm into almost every genre and generally read a book a week, if possible. I like Iris Johansen, Karen Marie Moning, Stephen King, James Patterson, Jane Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Diana Gabaldon, Kathy Reichs, and Robert Burns (every Scot's favorite author). I really love music and even got accepted to the Mason Gross School of Performing Arts at Rutgers University (my alma mater) for vocal performance. Unfortunately performance life was not for me, so I went into English Lit and French instead. Music is still a big part of my life, and I like a multitude of musical genres from Reggae to Rock to Opera. I've seen Carmen and La bohème each twice. (And I cry every time.) My husband and I also have a special place in our hearts for The Beatles.

I think names like Delilah, Jezebel, and Cain have horrible connotations that are sometimes hard to get past. I also have a hard time with really contrived spellings of normal names like Abygayle or Kaytlynne. It makes me think the parents are awful for subjecting their kid to those names.
