I deal with a lot of people every year in my day job. Every day I would come into contact with no less than 500 people every day. That's speak-to contact, not just walk by. I get to know those people reasonably well over the course of the year and over time form opinions about certain names. I try not to judge; I try to give everyone an opportunity to be who they are. But I do notice, year after year, the same names cropping up on my difficult-to-deal-with list.
Bear in mind these are my opinions based on my experiences only. Others will certainly have very different experiences and opinions.
Last week I shared some boys names. This week, it's the girls.
Girls are actually more difficult to pick because nearly all girls go through that year or so where they're total bitches, so every name is awful. Sometimes, though, the bitch stays.
These are names I see associated with 'permanent bitch' fairly often:
Beverly (a bully)
Helen (selfish, cunning) note: other forms of Helen seem to be fine: Eileen, Elaine, Elena, Eleanor
E E Montgomery
