This dildo has the same name as my mother.

I REALLY like the Ella, but that's my mother's name. Even if I were to re-name it, I would still know in the back of my head that it's given name is the same as my mother's.

Would this turn you off of a product? If it's name was the same as your mother's or another family member?

Yes. I wouldn't be able to use it either.

Yeah, I feel a bit weird about the Tantus Mark sometimes because I have friends named Mark. I still use it, though. It would definitely be weirder if it was a family member's name, I think I'd have to draw the line there.

I probably wouldn't be able to either, though I've never come across a situation like that so I can't say for sure

At first, but I'd most likely get over it. After all, my girl and my sister share the same name, and I got over that.

No, I would not buy a sex toy named the same as my mother!

There's a pretty popular dildo with my dad's nickname... and I'll never be trying it.

Yeah, I don't think I could use a dildo with the same name as my mother. My mom has a fairly unusual name, so I doubt that will happen, but it would just be too weird. Eek. No.

hahaha! Oh my goodness. My mother would be forever embarrassed! She can handle the fact that I used to sell sex toys, but when it comes to actually using them, I'm pretty sure she'd never use one I bought for her. I know she's used them before, but if I bought one for her she would never use it.

Well, the name Ella used to be very uncommon, but now it's getting more and more popular. I'm glad for that because I think it's a very pretty name, but now it's leaking into my sex life! LMAO

good grief, I probably wouldn't. it's supposed to be an excellent toy but I'm not sure I could get over the mental block

The Mikey freaks me out because that's my little brother's name. No thanks!! My boyfriend and I are going to be getting the Maverick soon and we're going to need to rename it because all it does is remind me of John McCain. Which is a problem.

Yeah, I couldn't do it.

I just realized that technically I'm in the same boat. My Mum's Elzbieta - that translates into Elizabeth and Ela is a popular shorthand in Poland. But the problem is solved 'cause my Mum hates Ela and nobody calls her that. If Ela was an outie toy I would even consider giving it to her as a present (she had problems with penetration so no dills).

I had quite a bit of a laugh when "Adriana's dangerous mind" came out. That's my prudish, sex-phobic sister.

My son calls my mom "Gigi." I thought about buying her the Gigi because of it, but I doubt I could use it myself because of it. I really want it but the name is a roadblock.

I could probably get past a toy named after my mom, but if there was a dildo with the same name as my dad or brother I don't think I could use it.

You know? I think most companies thought of this. I just went through all the realistic dildos (wondering how many different choices you could narrow down my dad's name to be if you were stalkerishly curious), and apart from the ones named after porn stars... most dildos are not given men's names.

With good reason. In an alternate universe, I probably would have tried that one.

The Elise is insanely close to my mother's name, but I still plan on buying it at some point. I think that if it was really my mother's name, I might still try it to see if it was good enough to get past the weird thoughts.

I am not sure it would bother me or not.

Nah. Wouldn't bother me. It's a product name to help people know which toy you're talking about, that's all. It's like if your best friend and worst enemy shared a name - that name isn't going to alter your relationships with them in any way, so it isn't worth worrying over. At most, I'd rename a toy if it happened. When you get right down to it, the dildo doesn't care what you call it.

There is a toy that shares my brother's name, but I have no interest in it because it's very similar to a toy I already have, so it'd be kind of a waste.

I really don't know... I'd give it lots, and lots, of thought. I guess it really depends who the person in my life is that the dildo shares the name with! Like, there's one called Godfather, and as much as I want it, I couldn't get it. Reason being? They often called the Godfather 'Don,' and that's my Dad's AND a good friend of mine's name. I guess it's just a mental roadblock.

Similarly, I really wanted the Vamp. And for the longest time, since it was associated with Twilight, I couldn't even look at it. Ironically enough, I finally made it past that roadblock and ordered it today! The sparkley finally got to me, and I broke down.

In the long run, I think it would depend on the price of the toy. If it isn't too outrageous, I'd probably give a shot just to see if I could get past it. If not, I could always gift it to someone else. Nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?

One time, I dated a guy whose parents living room furniture had the SAME pattern of fabric on it that my parents had on their bedroom curtains. And the day I introduced him to my parents, my dad and him were wearing the same shirt. Creepy!!

See, this is why they shouldn't give dildos the kind of names that are given to people. Dildos should have porn star/stripper/country music star names... Woody, Candy, Tex, Vixen, etc

But I guess that doesn't work out if your family member is also a porn star/stripper/country music star

That would creep me out like no other. I'm usually okay with Lelo's names since I haven't come across one that has the same name of anyone I know, but that would give me the jibblies.
