I agree with never naming your kid Adolph. There's a lot of awful names that were popular 100 years that hopefully won't become common again like Bertha, Melvin, Beulah, Cornelius, etc.

According to my husband, I almost made a bad name choice: I was due around Christmas and, if the baby was a girl, I was insistent on naming her Holly Noelle. Best name ever. I'm just sorry I didn't get to use it (had a boy).
So did you name your son Nicholas for good old St. Nick?

There's basically just one historical Delilah, and I don't consider her a good example--she was a manipulator and betrayed her own husband-- but just because I (or anyone Jewish or Christian or who is very familiar with the story) might think, "Hm, that's not the person I would choose to name my own child after" doesn't mean I would have "issues" with a person named Delilah.

To be honest, I'd probably assume that her parents just heard the name and liked it and either didn't know about the original Delilah or didn't care.
Or maybe they liked the name because of the Tom Jones song?

On the other hand, not everyone has to have an "Olivia" and/or "Liam". I mean, if that's the name you wanted to give your kid since you were 10 or something, fine, but there are lots of names out there.

Or Myrtle. That screams "1930s-40s" from the rooftops and would doom the girl to be called "Myrtle the turtle" for her entire childhood, guaranteed.

Normally I like the 'flower' names for girls: Iris, Rose, Lily, Daisy, Violet. And Poppy is cute too. I'm on the fence about Daphne, because again she'd be stuck with teasing a la "daffy Daphne." But definitely not Myrtle.

I had two uncles with girly names. Uncle Joy and Uncle Vivian. Weird.
