Ummm, how about Dorcas?  Blech!  or Elishabet (or something like that-- my reference books are all downstairs in the library and I've been going up and down all day...) There are more, I swear it.  I'll have to look them up for you.  I was terribly glad to see on the chat log that Katherine agrees with us that Alaric would have better taste in names than Sophonisba.

Okay yes. Dorcas is pretty bad!   :o  You couldn't name a modern child Dorcas, or the poor kid would be immercifully teased by her classmates who would find some terrible nicknames.  Elishabet...well, why not just name the kid Elizabeth and be done with it?  But then other cultures have some questionable names, too.

Umm how about 'Dorcas'?  One of the victims of the Salem Witch Hysteria had a 6yrold child who went to jail with her and the little girl's name was Dorcas.

   That name's yuccky for my money.

Dorcas?  Better Tabitha.  And teach her to sew. (Can anyone spot the Scripture reference?)

I rather like Dorcas.  Maybe because I know a Dorcas and she's a lovely lady.  It means "gazelle" in Greek, so it's really a graceful name.  One of my uncles dated a Hortense for a while.  He married a Dorothy, tho!  LOL

Fair enough, although I have to admit, when I hear the name "Dorcas" my most natural sound association drifts more toward "dork" than "gazelle."

Hortense....oh, there's another winner in the "Bad Names" sweepstakes.  The worst thing that could happen to a girl might be the name "Hepzibah Hortense" or maybe Hortense Hepzibah.  :) Dorothy I don't mind, so much, although it's rather old fashioned. Maybe it's because of my associating it with The Wizard of Oz. Or because one of my mother's oldest friends is named Dorothea, and she's a very cool person.

Theodosia's not so bad and Cassiopeia is actually quite nice--named after stars, or maybe after the "socialiator" on the original Battlestar Galactica.   ;D

 Euphemia, Helga and Bertha, though -- ewwww! 

  I bet there's lots of baaaaaad names in the Codex.

I do like Dorothy, but then my mother is a Dorothy.  Which, when you think about it, is kind of weird- I have a mother named Dorothy and an aunt with the same name.  And so do my cousins!

Elkhound's list look like a list of Greek mythology (& Viking?) names. I always liked Clytemnestra. :D

Why not 'Medea' while we're at it?

A friend of mine dated a woman named 'Pandora' for a while.  I advised him that if there was an interesting-looking box, trunk, chest, or jar in her house that he not open it.

Don't forget that in the bottom of Pandora's box, after all of the bad stuff escaped, was Hope.

I think that Xenia would be an interesting name for a girl.  Brion and Nigel had a sister named Xenia.
