I'm not quite as sure of that - I'm well aware of the "40 thieves" story, and it would never consciously override a deliberate intent to use the site, but I can also attest to the name causing a permanent nasty aversion in the back of my mind much like the OP noted. It's probably different in an Eastern context so it may not matter much, but I'm pretty sure the name did them no favours _whatsoever_ in any western setting.
