People will always have their opinions anyway... but once a child is named, the name becomes theirs and its the right name after a couple days.

It sounds tawdry and tacky to me. No shaking the money association.
I don't agree that it's in the same category as Bill (derived from the actual name William) or Mark, which is also a traditional name. Chance I'm not sure of - are people actually using that for a child's name?
To me, there is no other association for Cash than money. Or the last name, as in Johnny Cash, but the only possible reason I can think of for choosing that is if he were a relative of yours.
I agree with this.
I love the name Cash, I think it is strong and I do like the association with the very human and yet amazing Jonny Cash.
Of course, my name is Paige, so people think that is unusual and kids made fun of it when I was little...then came Knotts Landing...thank goodness .
No seriously, I think all children and people will find a way to have fun with anyone's name...just go with your gut.
Our sons name was a name we first saw on the sign of a funeral home and for the entire pregnancy we couldn't see ourselves using it...but when we saw him it became clear that it was his name...so now it is just a good story.

Not a very unusual name, but we knew DD would be Evie, Ava, Eve, Evi or similar before we figured out her longer name. I've since met a woman named Avenelle and I think that's a fabulous name to then nickname Ava.
Life just revolves around what you have and how much you can flaunt it here and Cash is just way too involved for me.
