My mums friend is currently fostering a little boy called Malachai, or Malaki, not sure how it is spelt.

My sister and i remember a film called "children of the corn", and everytime my mums friend calls him by his name,we shudder! Anyone who has seen the film will know why! grin

Just wondering if there is any childs name from a horror story which would prevent you from using it. Damien (which i love btw) is another one i just couldnt bring myself to use.

Am i just a wimp???grin

I know a Malachi.

I used to know a Damien too and he was a bit creepy. But I'm sure he wasn't the spawn of the devil. <ponders>

I have worked with one or two. I keep thinking 'malarkey'.

I used to go out with a Damien when I was 14. Great kisser, IIRC. I don't think he was the devil's child.

Nah PJ, but you got it on with Dean Gaffney who actually is the devil's child so you'd know.

when I was younger I always said if I had a baby boy I would call it Joseph Malachai.

Weirdly my OH's favourite boys name is Joseph. I probably won't use Malachai but I LOVE it.

I really dislike it personally but we have been here before

anyway I like Leonard or Basil for a boy so my opinion is not really of consequence

My sil's son is called Damon, and she gets very angry if anyone calls him Damien grin. So of course my OH does that just to wind her up!!

Amity? ( I had a friend called that)
But Amityville horror might put me off using it although I like it.....

are all good ones to steer clear of IMO!

I know an Attilla, but he is about 40.

If we are steering clear of Adolph, why is Joseph so popular?

ShovellyJoe Thu 04-Sep-08 10:34:06

Joseph is popular because there are hundreds, nay thousands of people called Joseph. I can names lots. You don't say 'Joseph' and hear 'Stalin'. You say 'Adolf', you hear 'Hitler', no?

Pinkjenny Thu 04-Sep-08 10:41:32

Oi Shovelly, I can't believe you dared to show your face here.

CilantroLarry Thu 04-Sep-08 10:43:26

ShovellyJoe's right you know.

Cavorting with Dean Gaffney isn't even excusable with beer goggles. Tell me PJ, when you were ill-advisedly locking tongues with a man who is less attractive than his dog, were you wearing a shell suit?

Pinkjenny Thu 04-Sep-08 10:44:35

No, I'd left my shell suit at home that day, but I was wearing a Burberry tracksuit and my obligatory curly wig.

Malachi has Biblical (OT) roots, doesn't it?

I never saw children of the corn. It never became as popular as the omen in the cultural mindset, I don't think.

foxytocin Thu 04-Sep-08 10:48:35

wiki on malachi.

Cappuccino Thu 04-Sep-08 10:48:48

I know a Malachai

it's biblical

it's rather sweet actually, well, the boy I'm talking about is

ShowOfHands Thu 04-Sep-08 10:51:09

Was he a good kisser?

Pinkjenny Thu 04-Sep-08 10:53:02

Because I think that makes a difference.

schneebly Thu 04-Sep-08 10:53:21

I like Carrie but not sure I would use it because of the film.
