I was helping a charity group one summer and we were going over the list of kids in the reading program only to discover these gems:

Score
ZaMario
Newborn (who was listed as 2 years old btw)

The all time worst name I've heard of is Marijuana Pepsi. She's a college counselor if I'm not mistaken, and I saw her on the news a few years ago. She said her mother refused to let people call her Mary Jane for short. I find it funny that she's a counselor now.

I know a lot of celebrities name their kids ridiculous names, with some of the first that I can remember being Apple, Egypt, Freedom and Moon Unit. I understand that it might be a little weird to legally change your name as you get older, but I'd been given one of those, I wouldn't blame them.

In high school there was this guy named Cable and one day before I ever met him he asked me "How stupid do you think it is to name your kid Cable?" and I said "Pretty stupid" and he took offense.

Bahhhhhhh I named myself Guitar on Gold. :(

Reminds me of a joke I heard about people naming their kids after things they can't afford, like Pearl, Mercedes, Rent, Water Bill...lol Cable seems like it'd fall into that category.

I also remember when my parents were going over name options for my sister long ago, and they said "What about Kendall?" and I said, "Nahhh! Name'er Candle!" I really hope that's not a glimmer into the future.

And after raiding Facebook, the winner of worst name combo goes to Raylan Rye. There's nothing wrong with Raylan. Nothing wrong with Rye (rye bread!?), but the combination...that double R...Ray and Rye are too similar. Sigh. :(

Tamer -> Which translates to your mother in english
Gaetan -> It's pronounced gay-tan
Shaik -> Pronounced Shake
Yzer -> Pronounced Why-zer

I find those ones pretty weird.

Just...don't name your child this name. Not in modern times.

Also, Osama.
Really, I don't get why some arab parents do this. I see this name, or variations of it (Ousama, Ossama) so often with children of immigrant families. Children that were born AFTER 9/11 are named this still.

I was going more along the lines of made-up names, like ones you wouldn't find in a run-of-the-mill name dictionary.

Sydian: what's so funny about Pearl? It's a real name. It's not all that unusual either.

I remember hearing on the news a few months ago that a woman in the UK named her baby, Hashtag (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/9707749/Twitter-trends-Has-a-mother-really-named-her-baby-girl-Hashtag.html) , you know as in #hashatg.
And then later I read a couple in Israel named their baby "Like" as in the Facebook like button.
And my faith in humanity was lost once again.

Harry Pitt.

I mean no offense to anyone with a weird name, hell, in my opinion it just sets you apart from the crowd, but why? Who the hell would be so inhumane as to name their kid Harry Pitt?

It's mainly because of the ridiculous spelling of the name.

I served a girl at work called Brucine. I laughed needless to say, because it reminded me of a Friends episode (I think it was friends anyway).

I have friends (a bother and sister) who share the last name "Wiener". I think the worst first name I've ever encountered is "Breadquanda".

I remember seeing an article about a baby being born on 11/11/11, and his name is Dovahkiin Tom Kellermeyer. The family gets free Bethesda games for life.

Here it is. (http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/11/17/little-baby-dovahkiin-is-born-parents-win-skyrim-naming-contest.aspx)

I'm not sure if these are real names as in birth-certificate real, but give 'em a shot if you hate your kid. I mean, Lewis Black never lies, right?

A family that used to go to my parent's congregation has the last name Travieso. In Spanish, travieso translates into naughty, mischievous, or prankster.

The "name" Nevaeh is bad enough (so trashy). But what is really stupid is that there's even crazier spellings of it. The worst was Navayah. which 17 girls in 2011 were named. Also, 22 girls were named Jamiracle. 14 girls were named Sacred, 7 girls were named Manhattan, and 5 girls were named British. XD

I found this on a list of names given to babies in 2011. It listed all the names given to 5 or more babies. And this was just the girls...

As for the boys, there were 8 boys named Sephiroth. Are the parents THAT obsessed with Final Fantasy? (I admit, I don't mind Aeris/Aerith, but Sephiroth sounds a little over-the-top.) Others include 34 boys named Champ, 15 boys named Priest, 8 boys named Triumph, 6 boys named Jakevious, and 5 boys named Gotti.

This trend is not even limited to names in English-speaking countries. In Japan, there is a category of names called "DQN names". It includes names considered laughable or even trashy in Japan. They are often embarrassing words used as names (like Wakiga, which means "body odor"), or even names imported from English spelled according to Japanese phonetics, like Anjierika (Angelica) or Renon (Lennon). Sometimes it's a name taken from pop culture - usually this means a name that is not widely used in Japan or specifically associated with a fictional character. For example, it's like if someone named their kid Inuyasha or Orochimaru. An example of a DQN name is Anaru. Guess where that comes from.

The website for DQN names is in Japanese, but they do have some of the names in Latin letters.

Only really first names and surnames together, but there's been a few names I've seen, mostly from a newspaper I read a few years ago. Here are some of them:

Edgar Berger
Robert Fagot
Dick Assman
Lark Song
Shanda Lear
Toasted Teacake


and how about this one I've just seen?
James Dr No From Russia with Love Goldfinger Thunderball You Only Live Twice On Her Majesty's Secret Service Diamonds Are Forever Live and Let Die The Man with the Golden Gun The Spy Who Loved Me Moonraker For Your Eyes Only Octopussy A View to a Kill The Living Daylights Licence to Kill Golden Eye Tomorrow Never Dies The World Is Not Enough Die Another Day Casino Royale Bond.

Yes, someone renamed themselves this.

Sometimes when an ethnic name is funny, I end up cracking up. I recently saw an online article mention a Nigerian woman named Bimbo. I burst out laughing when I read that. It's probably some African name, but I can only imagine how many people she's met laughing at her name (she had moved to England a few years ago).

There was another name that really made me laugh. Sh*taye, which is an Ethiopian name. (The * is actually an I. Stupid thing won't let me spell out the name.)

I don't know anyone with a particularly horrible name. I've heard stories from others of them but they were always second-hand.

Most unfortunate name I knew of was "Fanny", someone my dad knows. Won't say how because they'll come up on a google search but I felt terrible on her behalf when I heard the name. :P

Toutebelle
March 3rd, 2013, 05:55 PM
How about Quvenzhane, after the Academy Award nominee? I mean, what kind of name is THAT? http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-laughing024.gif

As for Fanny, I actually named an elderly character in one of my stories Fanny. The joke is that she's very old-fashioned - for example, she's as prudish as Victorian England. (Fanny was a very common nickname for Frances in Victorian England, but after that it became less common because it became a slang term.)

I've heard of old women in Deep South states with names like Johnnie, Willie, Bennie, Jimmie, and Tommie. And usually they're not short for anything. Seriously, those look weird. (At least Willie could be excusable for a girl if it's short for Wilhelmina - there was a female Willie in the Indiana Jones movies who did that wiht her name.)

I agree with Erica on the name "Fanny", it's just very vulgar-looking to me and I hate it cos of how people compare it with a female genital.

Even worse, I hated it when someone named their daughter "Like", after the Facebook term. An example of the worst baby name ever.

Thanks. That makes me feel better, even if its not my name irl.
On topic, the worst name I've ever heard is this little two year old named Aero Smith. First name Aero, last name Smith. I feel so bad for him when he gets older. Also, there's the name _, pronounced underscore, trying to follow after hashtag. What moronic parents.
As last names go, the worst I've ever heard is Dickyman.... Not exactly the best name for this day and age.

I wouldn't say this is one of the worst names I've ever heard! It's a pretty cool name, and in Swahili Quvenzhane means "fairy"

Anyway, the worst one I ever heard was La-a like other people.

Actually, the WORST names I've ever heard are these kids I read about whose parents named them: Adolf Hitler Campbell, Joycelynn Aryan Nation and Honszlynn Hinler. Those poor, poor kids. I'm glad they were taken away by child custody. :(((

The ones I hate are normal names that are intentionally spelled stupidly to show individuality. The most recent one I can think of is "Ellexis". If you're going to name your child Alexis, just call her Alexis.
