While searching my aunt’s genealogy site, I found that 3 of my ancestors bore the unfortunate name of [name]Nimrod[/name]. This got me thinking–what weird family names does everyone have hiding in their closets? Or more recent names your family members have chosen that you just dislike? (side note–I’m sure these names weren’t so strange in their day–some of these were pretty old.)
Some more on my side:
[name]Reason[/name] Virgin (girl)
Abishia–sounds like a certain profanity to me.
[name]Abijah[/name] (nn Bishy)
[name]Hyrum[/name] (all I see is rum)
[name]Samantha[/name]–I just really dislike this name, probably because of people I’ve known with it. All I hear is “man.”
[name]Ashley[/name]–so 80s to me.
