What ruins things worse than a song ruins a woman's name? A Slideshow. A Slideshow ruins everything.

I'm too lazy to click on a slideshow, so I'll just assume "Rosie" is on the list.

Well, it could be some woman named Mandy....or some man named Andy...

For the common names, I don't think anything is ruining... i.e. "Kim", most people don't think of the Eminem song.

But, for not as common names, yeah, first thing people think of if your name is "Sharona".....

I met a broad once named "Shandi", after a Kiss power ballad from 1980.

Either her parents were Australian, or some really devoted members of the Kiss Army.

I'm old enough to have been in junior high when Mandy came out and IIRC people weren't all that freaked out about it then - nobody knew him, it was his first hit and the cool kids hadn't yet deemed Barry Manilow forever uncool.  Then a short time later, KISS came out with "Beth" which is equally as wimpy a song, piano ballad with strings and all, but they mostly got a pass.  Maybe Barry should have worn clown makeup and kitty whiskers and platform shoes.  Maybe he does, I haven't seen him in a while.  And no, computer, I'm not going to add "Manilow" to spell check.

Indeed it is. That was a hit song in 89/90. And if anything's a name ruiner, it's being associated with a girl who shoots her incest lovin rapist daddy.

/well, as much of a "name ruiner" as any of these songs are.
//Also, the Van Halen song may also have been Janie. But I don't think Van Halen's Janie was crying because her Daddy was an incest-loving rapist.

I am so disappoint with you people.

1978 will tell us that Jamie's Cryin' because she should mean more than a one night stand.

Also, the name Gloria was much enhanced by Patti Smith and her smooth declarations.

Some of those were pretty fail. Half the names listed for "Freek a leek" were shiat to begin with. A shiatty hip hop song isn't going to ruin them any further. Half the rest of the slides were just songs that had a girls name in them, very few were major well known songs like Dirty Diana, Mandy, Jenny, Roxanne, Jolene, Hey there Delilah, Lola, etc.

List also fails for not including Layla.

In my experience as an Angie, I usually get the Rolling Stones version sung to me upon a first meeting. There have been a few times where guys have tried out Helen Reddy's Angie Baby on me, which is creepy. Because even tho I am a special lady, I don't live in a world of make believe.

Peaceboy: I'm old enough to have been in junior high when Mandy came out and IIRC people weren't all that freaked out about it then - nobody knew him, it was his first hit and the cool kids hadn't yet deemed Barry Manilow forever uncool.  Then a short time later, KISS came out with "Beth" which is equally as wimpy a song, piano ballad with strings and all, but they mostly got a pass.  Maybe Barry should have worn clown makeup and kitty whiskers and platform shoes.  Maybe he does, I haven't seen him in a while.  And no, computer, I'm not going to add "Manilow" to spell check.

What a stupid "article". How the fark does this lame ass shiat get greenlit? Seriously, how did names like Shameka, Kesha, Shonda, Deronda, Tanesha, Sha'von, Yolanda, Sharona, Iesha, etc. get "ruined" if nobody named their kids that in the first farking place?

It's ok NOT to publish anything on your farking website if all you have to offer is weak ass shiat like this guys... THIS is the problem with the 24-hour news cycle, we keep getting bombarded by "lists". Lists of the 25 worst movies "of all time", followed tomorrow by a list of the 25 worst mutant plant movies"of all time", or the 25 worst songs to have playing while you cross the street heading west while the sun is rising behind you immediately after a rainstorm "of all time", or so on. It's like they have to put up these lists or a psycho somewhere will kill their mothers, it's the only explanation.

Have seen a few Yolandas and Shamekas , an Aisha, and a Tanesha or two. Even know a few Sharons.  ;-)  Not everyone has boring names like Mary or John, or dippy names like Braeden and Ryleigh.

If I thought I could get away with it I would punch Jennifer Lopez in the face. I come across some asshole at least once a month who thinks it is HILARIOUS to call me "Jenny from the block". Or tell me that they're not fooled by the rocks that I've got.
At the height of that song's popularity I heard it multiple times a week.

Although I do own a t-shirt that says 867-5309. It's surprising how many people genuinely miss the reference. That's usually a shirt I wear at home only.

But seriously, fark you J-Lo.

Thank you. Basically, "Ruby, Don't Take Your Love To Town" was a crippled guy asking his wife to not be a whore. In fact, that should have been the name of the song... "Ruby, Don't Be A Whore". And there could have been a response record called "Ruby's Got To Be A Whore".

My wife's friend Sharon (non-western background, and was a recent immigrant) named her daughter Sharona, since she wanted her daughter to have a similar sounding name to her own, and had heard the name on a song on the radio, and like the sound of the name.
Unfortunately her English skills were insufficient for her to understand the implications of the whole song...

I tried to gently encourage them to find another name.

The mother was certain that the song wouldn't be associated with her daughter, and it wouldn't matter, and she really like the sound of the name.

Well, the daughter eventually reached an age where the teasing became personal, and asked to be known as "Sharonie", and eventually as a young adult changed from that to "Ronnie", to finally escape the association.

I resisted the "I told you so" opportunity...
