How to identify future stripper names?

Anonymous
I have a name that got a lot of compliments and "I've never met anyone with that name!" comments in the 80s when I was a kid, which faded in the 90s, and by the 2000s it was a full-on stripper/reality show star name. Pregnant with a girl now and I can't get the possibility that this might happen out of my head with each name DH and I consider that's even slightly nontraditional. For example, right now "Amelia" sounds great, but is on an upswing. When will the backlash/"that's so dated" sense begin? Can you even predict these things?

Not really asking for advice. Just feeling a little discouraged when I look at my name list and realize I can't see the future, you know?

Stick to the classics. Elizabeth will never be a stripper name, Ruby.

LOL. Wow, the things that go through our heads when we are pregnant. Name her "Mary" or one of its variations (Maria, Mariam, etc). I can't imagine that could ever possibly be a stripper name LOL.

It's so hard to know. Lindsay might have stayed a fine name if LiLo hadn't become such a huge hot mess of a famous person, you know?

Just do what works for you, Paris.

Lol. You aren't by chance a fellow Sabrina are you? Because I can relate to your experience.

That being said, so long as you pick a "real" name, your daughter will be fine. By real I mean a name that people have heard before and is properly spelled. Yes, there are a million Ashley's, and I'm sure there are strippers using that name, but it's not the first thing I think of when I hear the name.

Ashley -- definitely not stripper.
Ashlee -- questionable.

Are you Destiny or Trinity?

Normal names don't turn into stripper names. No stripper will ever go by Amelia. Stripper names tend to be names that attempt to convey class (via a brand name like Tiffany or Mercedes) or some "deep" concept (Destiny, Heaven) or are just fluffy and dumb (Bambi, Missi, Sunshine).

You don't have to go completely boring, like Mary. Just stay away from names that are made-up or creatively spelled (hint: the double-e ending is always bad).

Also: Never, ever name your child after a reality star.

A classic name, spelled in a classic way, may coincidentally be a stripper's name, but it will never be a Stripper Name.

Amelia and its (normal) variations -- Emily, Emilia, Amalia, Amelie -- will never be a Stripper Name. Ameeliya? All bets are off.

Don't spell Tiffany as Tiffani, etc.

Don't dot the "i"s in your daughters name with hearts.
