The Top Ten

1
Dick
Um... I was going to say something funny, but some people might get offended. Don't worry, I have a funny name too.

aeromaxx777

HA HA HA Such a funny name who would name their son penis its the same as dick

noontime123

Dont hurt yourself trying to think funny.

fireinside96

[Newest]It's a shame that the abbreviation for the perfectly good name Richard (which is my father's name) is something stupid like Dick.

2Gaylord
Come on poor kid has to fight for his life in the schoolyard daily.
I want to kill the father who named their son like that. Poor kid. This name should not be allowed
Ha! Poor freakshow! Someones going to get bullied. He should change his name
[Newest]Someone is gonna get bullied...

3Satan
Satan... Ookayy...

Who named their kid satan anyway?
Because satan is bad
I would NEVER name my baby boy Satan.
[Newest]Sounds like some parents are going a little over board in trying to stick it to those 'dumb Christians' by naming their child after a devil in a religion... In my opinion that angst would be better spent on some picket sign or debate somewhere instead of making your kid wear it around... Very unoriginal.

4Cannon
Be bad if you're last name was "Ball"... How would you feel?
I see nothing wrong with Ian or Colin though.

Guido

This is a joke. I think the parents were not ready to have a child and they wanted to blow him away through a cannon.

Slashhead

This is my name, childhood was miserable. But, I can ALWAYS get my name on any social network, or email, or website. I've always felt bad for people named John, it's like you say the name and 9 other people pop up. So lame.
[Newest]Cannon is a nice name what's wrong with it

5Laqueesha
Um, a dude named Laqueesha? Is this for real or is this site trolling?
Sounds like some sort of noodle.

"Son come get your laqueesha and meatballs!."
Ghetto girl name, his parents were probably high thinking of the name
[Newest]Well, at least it ain't Bobby Bonus


6Ian
I think that Ian is a hot name. I had a friend in my middle school named Ian and he was pretty cute. I don't think that Ian is a bad ugly name. Anyway when I have a son I am going to name it Ian.
Damn, he must of been the candles of a roasting fire in your opinion!
If I had a dog, I'd name it Ian, as a joke. Wolfgang is a beautiful name by comparison. Ian deserves to be at the top of this list. All those unfortunate Ians out there would at least be able to sleep at night knowing that they were at the top of a list for once. No offense intended
What are you talking about the meaning of the name Ian is "god is forgiving" not "it"! So Ian is a good name to have!
[Newest]My name's Ian, and for the record, girls see me coming, they faint because I'm so handsome!

7Ib
This is not a name! What a sad guy who would name his child this sounds like something you say when your bored. Seriously is anyone even called this!
That's a name? Wow. My mom is a daycare teacher and sometimes I volenteer there when I don't have school and I've heard some names like Wheeler and Hero It's so upsetting knowing these kids will live there entire lives with stupid names
I make this noise when I am confused. "Ib! Ib! "

username34

[Newest]This would be funny and mean!

funnyuser


8Seaman
"Hey look, Tom Cruise has Seaman on his back! "
Seaman... Like the dog on the Lewis and Clark expedition?
I would hate to be named Seaman.
[Newest]Seaman, it sounds like a superhero who lives in the ocean.

9Wolfgang
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is the name of the famous composer
Sounds like a gangs of wolves and a baby of a person should be not named by this, your child will kill you

ronluna

When I was in school we were learning about him and that's exactly what I was thought
For everyone who is culture-blind, Wolfgang happens to be Mozart's last name and if you don't believe me, look it up.

ImAKillerQueen

Wolfgang was Mozart's first name I'm pretty sure. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
[Newest]Wolfgang is a cool name example : Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

10Angus
The Angus burger comes from some of the best beef in the world, developed in Scotland... Aongheas (Gaelic spelling) is a very common name there, hence the name of the breed. A very ancient and proud name in Scotland.
Well, if your baby is fat, this is the one for you
Wow, that's the dumbest name after my 6 oz angus burger at Burger King!
[Newest]Angus Jones the kid who played Jake on Two and a Half Men.

The Contenders

11Osama
Oh no, it's Osama! Let's kill him again!
It was pure unlucky that Osama (bin laden) was born and terrorized... Although anyone else I am fine with the name "Osama"
Thisis the worst name anybody could ever name a kid
[Newest]That name is worse than liquid cabbage

12Abcde
-_-... Why the heck would you name your own son Abcde? I feel sorry for the boy... And now I feel like I want to Sing the alphabet...
I'm NOT JOKING! On the radio they said something about worst names and this guy called and said his friend was called ABCDE! By the way its pronounced A-Bes-i-ty. Sounds like obesity. Abcde is a bad name on SO many different levels
My little sister's classmate is Abcde. I had to ask him so many times because I confessed I wasn't hearing his name right, until I asked him to spell it out.
[Newest]At least he will never forget his NAME, cause almost everyone knows it? Laugh out loud

13Zane
My father almost named me this!

gunsnroses

[Newest]Dakota is hot name for a guy.

17Garrett
I don't think this is a very bad name for a boy its actually a very good name for a boy this should not be #17 on the bad name list for boys it should be that in the good list for boys names
Laugh out loud my little brothers name is garrett
Em... Bla bla bla... It made me puke
[Newest]My boyfriends name is garret...

18Duncan
There's a kid at the school I teach at named Duncan. Students would tease him and call him Duncan Donuts, until he said that his last name was Heinz. That's right, like Duncan Hines cake mix.
Such a horrible name for a nice kid, and even worse with that last name...
Their name is Duncan because their parents had sex in the Duncan donuts washrooms.
It sound so much like dumb can so dumb people are it a rubbish name if this was my name I would ask to change my birth certificate
[Newest]My friends brother is named DUNCAN

19Braydon
Looks like someone spelled Brandon wrong
Awful, tacky & sounds made up. Trashy name, yuck!

20Guy
Who would name their kid guy it is just like saying hi I am a random guy and I don't have a name yay
My brother had a book, and there was a little black girl (no racism here) that was maybe 3 years old and was named "Guy."

username34

It should not be a name
[Newest]Imagine a baby be called guy like its strange

21Elmo
Elmo?! The parents of this child must be seriously deranged.
I think they were getting ready for the baby so much that they watched too many cartoons...
I think the parents should take LEGAL drugs. And not get drunk while choosing baby names
[Newest]I have a friend his name is Elmo

22Ashley
This is a girls name! HELO? Maybe that's Ash Ketchum's real name...

Pikachulover1

Thus is my friends name and he's a boy
It's actually a boy name but it sounds better on a girl.

23Kevin
Kevin isn't a bad game at all.
I have a church minster named kevin and he is a wonderful guy he is the kids minster and I love it when he preaches I think
Kevin is not a bad name it should be on the best names ever so I think it is great name
[Newest]I thought these were supposed to be ugly...

24Eli
What's wrong with Eli. I have a friend named that. I think it's a good name
There's nothing wrong with the name Eli. It's a great name and it totally doesn't even go in the same category as the other names on this list.
I think that this name sould be taken off the list. I have a friend at school named Eli. He's cute maybe even hot and kids are friends with him. Whoever made this list did not do very good-my opinion
I know someone who named there son Eli Richard.
[Newest]That's my teachers husbands name. Reminds me of an elephant...

25Cayden
What's wrong with Ryan. Good Irish strong handsome name
Their is a boy named Cayden in my class and he is crazy and showed his private in front of the whole class.
My brother has a friend named Cayden what is wrong with it nothing

26Norbert
That's Hagrid's dragon's name in Harry Potter! Every time someone says, "Hi, I'm Norbert! " I think he's a dragon!
It makes me think of sherbert...I don't know why...I hope everyone who reads this has a good day or has had a good day
My parents always joke that they're were gonna name me this- I'm a girl. And I think Eli's a nice name along with others on this list. By Norbert, just no.
[newest]
If f I was named norbert id be mad

27Felix
What is wrong with this name? It's quite cool actually.
This is an unique and beautiful name many great celebrities have that name including my favourite YouTuber :).
Fix it Felix! Reminds me of wreck it Ralph. And plumbers.
[Newest]I like this name!

28Jayden
That's my name. It's awesome

JaysTop10List

That's my name whoever put it on the list will get a tombstone... Bilive that.

WWEfanJayden

It's a cool name

29Tucker
That's my name everyone likes it... O well

Probably because its easy to replace the T with an F
Well, this name is not bad at all. But if you have watched Fullmetal Alchemist and saw Shoe Tucker, you'd probably know why this was added.

Kiteretsunu

It sounds so much like it could be the same guy named stifler :/

30Ivan
That's my name... And I hate it!
That's my dog's name

31Ashton
Ashton Kutcher. Enough said.
This is my son's name. I don't think there is anything wrong with the name.
Ashton Irwin? I heard that name somewhere and he text me somehow

JaysTop10List

[Newest]Ashton irwin is my bae


32Beau
I love this name because it has a really unique spelling and.. Of course, beau brooks
Hot name though like beau brooks man
Beau means beautiful in French, and this is a beautiful name

33Wilburforce
Because will was just too mainstream
I have no words

34Hayley
Who in the world putted this here! This is a girl's name no boy name! What stupid idiots are out there I saw a girl's name on this list more than once. Hayley is a pretty girl's name whoever putted a girl's name on this list is gettin TORTURED! I MEAN IT!

35Beavis
What would you name your other child Butt-head
Ok that's just dumb

36Bernard
There is a reason why I hate my parents - they called me Bernard. Everyone mocks me because of it and they make fun of me. They say that my name is the worst and I totally agree.
My "Friend" is Bernard. He's Strange so maybe that has something to do with his name.
This is a species of dog! Imagine if they are a vegetarian!
[Newest]I think of a dog

37Mustafa
Um... The parents must have really liked lion king
What kind of name is this!?!?
Insanity Arabic?
This sounds so odd for a name. It sounds funny too. It's not even a little close to a boys name.

alecola90

What the heck some of the names on this list are really really damaged who would name their kid dick if they did they would be really really really stupid
[Newest]Mustafa is my uncles name. I'm Persian, so stop being racist.

38Keith
It just rolls poorly off the tongue. Think about it. Keith. It sounds so terrible when you say it, doesn't it.
This kinda reminds me of Boingo from the movie Hoodwinked! Where he's like "Darn it Keith change your name! Seriously. It's not scary, and I'm embarrassed to say it."
I strongly agree with the person who commented on it rolling poorly off the tongue. I'd never really thought about it before, but wow, you could not be more dead-on
Definitely this one. The other ones are a joke, nobody really names their kids that. This name, on the other hand? Shockingly common for how awful it sounds
[Newest]Keith's a terrible name.

39Tred
Why not call him tyre?
Sounds like someone who would dip Pringles in "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. "
A guy with that name probably has some crazy nickname like Ham Steak.
[Newest]Sounds like an accountant's name.

40Dustin
Your mum can tell you what to do and call your name... Have dun dusting for the rest of your life (only works if your mum doesn't pronounce g's
That's my cousins name though and he's cool af

41Adolf
This name should be number 2, right after Satan.
After the 2nd world war, no kid on earth ever got called Adolph anymore. If someone call his child like that, he shall not be surprised if people look at his son like he's the devil.
I wonder How many people do actually realize that big brand Adidas comes from the name Adolf Dassler who started his shoe business after WW1 then Rudolf Dassler joined him but another war divided brothers and Rudolf left then founded Puma :)))) Name of brand Adidas was created by Adolf after his brother left the company.
[Newest]Adolf Hitler! Is bad

42Wayne
Wayne Gretzky was in one fight in his 20 year career
Bat man and his son, Lil Wayne etc...

JaysTop10List

I like the name personally
Cool name in my opinion
Colton is my teachers sons name! Along with her husband, Eli. There both handsome and nice.

45Rivers
What the hell? You named your kid after a body of water?

"Your so fat your mother should have named you ocean
Rivers Cuomo, the lead singer of Weezer
[Newest]I like the name Rivers. It's like River Song from Doctor Who.

46Nigel
But Nigel is a smashing name.
I'm NIGEL AND I'm DUMB

47Todd
Yes! I love that routine. Todd isn't the worst name on this planet, but it's not exactly what I want to name my son. Eli, Cayden, Ian, and Garret aren't bad names though. But George also questioned the fact that names like Bobby, Tommy, Jacky, Johnny, and Phil aren't as popular as they were when he was a child ( the 1940's).
Worst boring-est name, like poo
My name is todd... Noo

48Colin
There's a guy in my class named Colin! Gonna try and keep my mouth shut wish me luck we're pretty tight and honest! :O
This is a good name not a bad one

This name rocks and the name tristan sucks
It's a nice name

50Gaylon
Made up crap, you are pathetic if you name your son this

51Brianna
What the what? Brianna is a girl name, so whoever names their son this is sick.
Excuse me, but my names Brianna and I'm a girl! That's so insulting to call your son that!
What's wrong with brianna
[Newest]Brianna is a girl name

52Rudolfo
Oh, wow. Naming your kid after a Christmas mascot.

Garythesnail


53Sarah
Yes it is a very bad name for a boy because it means princess in hebrew and it is short for Sallyv
It's a girl's name

54Shabazz
Stupid people. Shabazz is the historical name of the Father of Black people (Tribe of Shabazz) that currently live in some parts of Africa and the western hemisphere. 50, 000 years ago he left Arabia for Africa and started a new civilization there. This is a real name. Too bad people only learn history through the eyes of white supremacy. You should study before you speak.
Lets say that shabazz is a real name it would still be in the top fifty worst names ever I mean seriously who would do that their just putting a fake name!
Say, what?! Seriously? Oh boy, someone is looking for attention by giving their kid a ridiculous name.
[Newest]I'm not sure this is a real name

Garythesnail


55Eugene
That's the name from mr crabs
Rename yourself Flin Rider... No wonder the Eugene in 'Tangled' hated his name... I know a girl named Eugene anyway...
Every. Guy I know with Eugene in his name turns out to be verbally and mentally abusive

56Colby
Is my best friends sisters name. Yeah, SISTER.

57Donkey
Sounds like the parents are big fans of shrek

61Tom
Tom? And what would you name your other boy? Jerry?

Epicsauce45

Tom is a name for a guy with a massive head and small feet
Tom is so boring. Just like jack. Snore!

62Head
Seriously, nobody has said anything about this yet?
Hey guess what? I have a head!
Hahhaha who ever named the kid that sucks!

63Jamie
Jamie is a good name
Damn you that's my brothers name who put this on the list!

Look out everyone, here come Brent.
From experience, anyone named Brent sucks at Fantasy sports and March Madness.

68Lorenzo
One of the coolest names ever my brother has that name

69Minecraft
First of all, this game sucks... BUT WHERE DO YOU GET OFF NAMING YOUR OWN CHILD THIS!?!?! Anyone that names their child this has to be a complete loser that was lucky to find a companion in the first place then they go and ruin their child's life by naming him after this overrated piece of crap you call a fun time on your pc... thank you for reading and remember to stay away from anyone that offers you "candy" because in reality, that is slang for cocaine
Next name should be notch and Minecraft sounds like some one drilled a hole in your head and crafted your mind
That is the name of an online game.
[Newest]Poor child! They will probably be considered a geek!

70Cole
Cole is my favourite name ever.
Cole is a cute name. It's mine...
This is a great name

71Manfred
Anyone who calls their son this obviously wants him to be manly when he grows up, but what if he isn't? Manny and Fred are awful nicknames. And what if he ends up as a cross dresser?
Anyone who names their son this obviously has no idea he might turn out to be a crossdresser one day! It's like they're trying hard to make him super masculine.
I knew a guy named manfred tiddeman. And guess what? He was an ass man. My homeless friend pig dick perry always used to tell me " Stain, you can never trust a man named Manfred
[Newest]Manfred? What is this, victorian age england?

It's just fred backwards
Derf is a made up number from I Carly.

I used to like this name until that idiot Justin Bieber came along
Justin Beiber is annoying
[Newest]Justin? I have no problems with this OH yeah, Bieber.

Garythesnail


78Evan
I don't think this is a bad name. What is wrong with it? I mean seriously I guess I', a little biased because I know people with this name, so it makes me like it more. I'm naming my kid Evan.
I love this name, it's my sons name. It's these best in the world.
A kid at schools name is Evan. He is weird, his best friend is a stuffed animal.

79Willard
Had a mean teacher named ms. Willard!

80Henry
Who could say that Henry is an adorable there have bin a lot of kings named Henry my name is Henry and Iam a black belt
Henry is an awesome name! Classic and simple. Better than Laqueesha, which sounds like a slang term for regurgitating.
Henry is the worst possible name ever though up by man

81Nevin
Sounds like kevin with an N.

82Ralf
Best name ever! I just Ralf'd in my garbage can when I read it.

83Oliver
I like this name... It's my brothers name and he's alright sometimes!

84David
Hey this is my name
David is the best name ever!
David is the best name ever

85Paul
Paul is a biblical name. He wrote most of the New Testament and died a martyr. It'd be worst to call your kid Saul, because that was Paul's name when he was a douchebag. He changed it when he became a Christian.
My name is pau. stop bullying
Sounds like animal foot

86Party
Hey Party! Do you want to go to the party?
This name made me laugh... it sounds like Pinkie Pies child's name...

87Alex
This is my name you can all screw yourselves, plus haven't you heard of a great warrior named Alex the Great?
Alex isn't to bad, but Alexander is terrible, my sister in law named her baby Alexander, and it just does not suit an 8 month old baby, and she will not have it shortened either! She said if anyone trys to shorten it, it will be Zander not Alex-I think that's even worse laugh out loud
This is my name. And it's a great name. Personally, this list is offensive to me. There are nice people in the world with these names. So stop judging others and judge yourself.

alexcousins

[Newest]It's my name. I'm offended :(

Randomsoldier23

[Newest]Austin is a GREAT name!

97Clark
Isn't that kind of like a last name, but without the e at the end?

98Geoffrey
Why can't people just spell it jeffrey. [although that's still a horrid name] why get so complicated?
It's pronounced Jeffrey. my dance teacher spells it weird like that
Thanks G.R.R. Martin. Everyone named Geoffrey is hated on principle now.

99Brett
I don't see what is wrong with this name. I find it rather cute in its own way. It's not at the top of my list for what I would name my child, but I know many people named Brett. I find this to be a fine name. Brett should be lower on the list.
One of my bros is named Brett I love the name and is there really a bad name? People can name their kids what the hell the want I mean my names Kailey and some people think that's a bad name.

100Pinocchio
If I was a little boy I'd barf if my name was Pinocchio. Would my Daddy have to be named Gepetto, too? Then there's the problem with crickets... I'm allergic to them even if they might be named "Jiminy" and can sing better than Rebecca Black. What a doosey.
