Hunting doesn’t necessarily mean killing, it just means looking for stuff. It’s also a surname (maybe not in her family tree, perhaps her husband’s? or not). As in the case of some meanings of names not being that great, in this case, [name]Hunter[/name] is a word in the English language, so the meaning is not obscured, and most people’s association is one of the violent meaning usually, not the general meaning of seeking, but she’s the vegan here, and she would have noticed if she thought there was anything inappropriate about it.
Funny if you had said for a girl she was thinking of calling her Carnie. That doesn’t mean what I’m implying it means… pretty sure. [name]Carney[/name] means “victory” and Carnie appears to be a nn for [name]Cornelia[/name], which doesn’t even mean corn, it means “horn,” or a nn for [name]Carina[/name], maybe, which means “beloved.” Other names that are safe for vegans are [name]Demetria[/name], [name]Hamish[/name], [name]Lamar[/name], [name]Henrietta[/name], [name]Willard[/name], [name]Minka[/name], [name]Pearl[/name], [name]Jennifer[/name], [name]Patty[/name], [name]Frank[/name], [name]Chuck[/name], and [name]Barbie[/name]. Names that are not appropriate for vegans are Lemonjello, Oranjello, [name]Sable[/name], and Salad ([name]Lettice[/name] is ok). I went to school with someone named Baycan (I think he was Hungarian?), but it was pronounced By-zhan.
Sorry to derail your thread, I’m feeling a little silly.
