Comments for MACARENA:

Because of that darn song, I would never choose this name. Even if it weren't for the song, I wouldn't choose it, because kids might still tease this girl by calling her Macaroni.

I didn't even know that this was a name. I just thought it was an odd song title! o.0 I dislike this name.

"Hey Macarena!"
That's pretty much all you would hear with this name. I feel bad for anybody who has it. It shall forever be associated with that song, which is unfortunately catchy even after ten years or so.

This name gets on my nerves because of the song but I actually know a really funny girl named Macarena.

Isn't this a name of a song? Ah, well, then why would you call someone this? Scary. :S
P.S That song gets on my nerves.

It doesn't sound particularly mature, classy, or dignified anyway, but that annoying hit from 1996 has truly ruined this name for a long time to come. What else could it remind people of?

It's not a nice name to begin with, never mind 'The Macarena'. The dance is catchy, but are you prepared for your child to be teased?

Actors Verónica Vieyra and Silvestre have a daughter Macarena Rodriguez Vieyra (born 1989).

Macarena is the name of the most annoying song in history.
-- LindsayHansen  10/22/2008
Well, yes non-Spanish speakers, Macarena is a REAL name. But Macarena is a SPANISH name, and it's been a name way long before the song actually came out. In the song, the lyrics go 'baila tu cuerpo alegria Macarena' which means 'dance your body away, Macarena'.

And I love this name, especially the way it's pronounced in Spanish. Of course you non-Spanish/Hispanic people wouldn't understand and immediately judge the name through the song.

And I don't get how it's annoying. It's not like the Chicken Dance.

I'd just like to note that Mary is not "worshiped" in Catholicism because she is treated as a saint, or holy human, and not a goddess. "Honored" or "venerated" would be a better term. Also, this entry has a typo: "it's" where it should be "its." [noted -ed]

This name isn't really that exciting, but it does sound nice. And I love the song Macarena, so that doesn't bother me at all.

I would probably like it if it didn't make me think of that irritating song! And it does sound a bit like "macaroni" (no offence).

Do the dance; you know you want to!

I think it will be a while before this name is washed clean of that song. They always play it at discos when it's getting late/early and they want everyone to leave. And it doesn't sound great to me, either. Sorry.

I wouldn't use this name. It's forever tied to the song.
-- Buneary  1/7/2013
I feel sorry for the girl because it means something not very nice. In my school there are certain people that get picked on, but this girl went through something bad and mean, as this nickname for who knows how long. Gee, but I really do not want to be called upon by this name, that's for sure!
