The Top Ten

1
Helga
Just listen to it. Would you want to go out with a girl with this name?
It makes my throat hurt saying this name.. Helga. Not working out!
Now this is a really ugly name. At least nobody said my name. But my kids, one of my girls name is Lexi, my work friend's names are Ashlynn and Bailee. And if I have another girl she will be called Mikayla. Now, Bob is a very bad name for a girl, as is Raven and Olga. But Helga is the worst.

2Bob
It is child abuse to name a girl that!

moose4life19

More comments about Olga

4Drug
Laugh out loud, are you serious? You wanna a name your girl after that, you redneck parents?
My name is sydney, and I was VERY dissapointed to see me on the list, but DRUG? , how could you name your kid that? Seriously!
Really? I've never heard of this one, but lets just say, I'm never going to name my child that.
More comments about Drug

5Nevaeh
The only thing I can say about naming a girl Nevaeh (which is the opposite spelling of heaven), is that it is kinder than just cutting through the hinting and naming her Hell.
When I hear this name, I think "tacky" and "ghetto. " It's not creative. It's not pretty. It's bad. Just bad.
I like this name but I realised its the opposite of heaven. And I know someone named this and she went through child abuse... Yeah but I think the name is pretty.
More comments about Nevaeh

6Hedwig
What? It's good for an owl in Harry Potter, but not as a real life human girl name! This is child abuse to be named this.
YOU ARE SERIOUSLY JOKING ME, yes I LOVE harry potter, and I'm writing another book, BUT HEDWIG AS A NAME! You don't have to make it obvious that they have a HEAD and a WIG! I mean YOU ARE SERIOUSLY JOKING ME, or have I already said that?
An old german name. Someone I know has it as her second name. Every time someone heared that name laughed. Wasn't there an owl named like that in Harry Potter.
More comments about Hedwig

7Bertha
All I can think of when I hear this name is "Look out, Big Bertha's coming through! "
Sounds like a baby is coming out!
Yuck Bertha and Gurtrude have to be the worst names ever! I'm not sure which one is worse.
More comments about Bertha

8Gaylord
Gaylord? Seriously? "My son is the lord of the gays... " That's just wrong….

That is just horrible I would change my name
More comments about Gaylord

9Prudence
It sounds like someones ancient great aunt
That's mean…I really really like this name! It's so cute and I can so see it on a baby, child, preteen, teen, young adult, adult, elder…honestly. There are so many worse names out there…I love Prudence!
Prudence sounds like plum and it sounds werid

10Mckenzie
Really mckenzie isn't a bad name. really people shouldn't blame people for how they were named. I have a bff named mackenzie and she is nicest person ever to me. its not fair. you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I'm ashamed of evreyone who thinks these names are ugly when there are a lot of people out there who are named these things and you guys are just making fun of them. this is sad because this is coming from an 11 year old. there are ADULTS on this who are making fun of innocent child names. get a life because I bet you need somehing better to do with your life than make fun of someones name. I have an embarrassing last name but I have lots of friends and they don't care what my last name is. and if you havea problem with this post then come say it to everyones faces whos names are these.
Yes I like the name I have no problem with the name because I know a lot of people with the name
I kind of like the name, more because you can shorten it to Mackie.

Excuse me! My mom's name is Peggy and I think that it is a WONDERFUL name!
WORST NAME EVER. PERIOD. END. OF. STATEMENT. Sorry... It's just bad. I mean... Peggy? EESH. Little baby... Peggy? YIKES! Peggy<<<<

12Schartzmugel
Yeah, so if you have a job interview, here's how it would go:
"Hi, my name is Schartzmugel Johnson, I'd like to apply for a job, Mr.H. "
"Wait... Schartzmugel? "
A girl in new york has this name its like holy guacomole!
This name. Its like a bunch o letters put together. You need to add a lot more thought to it. And think about how hard it would be if you would want to write your name in Kindergarten or Preschool. And it is really hard to pronounce. And Think about how other kids would think of the name. They would bully the poor girl. It is pretty hard to think of this as girl's name.

My name is charlotte and people call me charlie
Charli is my little sis name, I think it is a unique name and very cute like her😊

60Kat
I don't know why I am so against this name, but really? Kat? Not only is this kind of a bad nickname for Katrina or Katalina, which are great names, I really dislike it as the name of an animal yet spelled differently.. Why don't you name your daughter Sheetah, Taiger or Daug? It will be the same thing as this name. I honestly don't know why I hate this name so much, it just sounds bratty... Even Cat sounds better, at least it accepts being an animal name without disguising itself, and it just sounds more sweet than stuck-up Kat,
Kat is brilliant! It is one of the most cute names out there and please do not make fun of it like saying it is an animal because the animal is just as awesome as the name.
Kat, short for karkat you mean... BEEP BEEP MEOW!

Really? Come on who would name your child after a New York suburb? Would their middle name be bridge?
Your family is going to New York City on vacation. You take your daughter on the Brooklyn Bridge and say 'this bridge is what you are named after. ' That's disappointing.
That would be their last name

99Mildred
Ever since "The Little Mermaid came out, girls would think their parents don't love them if their name was Mildred. They would rather have Ariel as their name because Prince Eric thinks it's "kinda pretty". But Ariel is a very cute name. Mildred is not!
