Giving name for a girl

someone told me not to give some names to a girl because of the history of the name that is not so good.
for example :
Rochel are suffering
Leah have problems of chlom bais
etc

does anyone knows if the Rebbe said something about it ?

Thanks

He did not mix, unless he specifically had a reason for mixing.

But did the Rebbe said that we should avoid to give certain names because of the history of the name ?

Rochel

The Rebbe thanked some for giving the name Rochel after his grandmother.

I assume rebayzl's comment is on the initial point.
I believe IIRC the Rebbe also thanked those that named after his mother, and after the Rebbetzin.
