Luca. No negative associations with it. It was just taken by people we knew before we had a chance to use it. (They didn't know at the time that it was our choice for a boy name.) Now we need to choose something else. I always have a difficult time choosing boys' names.

I'm a teacher, so for me the no-name list is a combination of names that are super-popular amongst the kids I work with, and names of kids with severe behavior problems that I'd rather not associate with my child. Some of the super-popular names near me that I wouldn't use are Emily, Ava/Eva, Ruby, Sophie/Sophia, Lily, Jack/John, Aidan, Griffin, and Matthew. And I once worked with a kid named Seth who would pretend to stab himself, curse up a storm, and suck his thumb and curl up under his desk. So no Seth for my child.
