So what's in a name?  A lot, imo.  For example, most of the people named Jason or Justin that I know, are always tall, muscular men that act like douchebags towards their girlfriends.  Likewise, I have NEVER met an Eric that hasn't been a jerk to me, in one way or another.  Eric would be at the top of my list of douchbag names...

On the other hand, I know a lot of fine folks named Matt. 

So what names do you like / dislike, and why?

I quite like Lee.  Names are very personal and I have some favourites, but I think I dislike 'ghetto' or very popular names that end up being associated with negatives.

I fin it interesting that in Japan and China for example, names are descriptions, while in the west we tend to name after other people.

I very much dislike my own name Theressa it's like nails down a fucking chalkboard when people use it. Especially people I don't like. I also dislike when people use bastardised versions of my name like Tess though that usually stops when I tell them to say  Tess Tickle out loud they never say it again.
