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.
Sounds like a fatass barbarian who beats up other kids.
More comments about Helga

It is child abuse to name a girl that!


Bob? Isn't that a boy name
Bob the builder can we fix it?
Bob the builder
No we can't! Woot woot
That's a boy's name! Why would someone name a girl that!? =(


This isn't even a girl name who would think of naming their child THAT?
More comments about Bob

Sounds too much like "old guy" or Ol' ga or something
Means "beautiful" in Russian. Very popular name there.
This is a horrible name! My piano teacher's name this. She is so mean!
More comments about Olga

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.
This is how you tell someone is white- they think that it is a ghetto name, and that's how its bad.
More comments about Nevaeh

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.
Again, this sounds like a big hairy girl.

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<<<<
I quite like this name, I would never call someone this in this centuary but I thing its one if the nicer old names better than victoria or anne any day - reminds me of a a beautiful woman that might have lived 1930's but would never call anyone peggy today!
Peggy:"maybe I could work with you"
Hank:"Peggy. A woman can't sell propane and propane accessories"!

But besides that all this is a god awful name. Bleh

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
It reminds me of prunes

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.
I have a friend called Mackenzie and she is horrible to me I think it is a horrible name

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.
Is this really a real name!? Hmm?

How do you pronounce that anyway? La dash a?

I agree peyton does not sound like a name, ashley, tony and mary do but not peyton. The only peyton I've ever heard of was peyton list from Disney channels Jesse. Granted I hate the name jesse or jessica.
Here's why that's the name of a leading character in One Tree Hill.


Peyton is the ugliest name ever it should be number one, especially that peyton list is ugly which makes the name uglier :P
Not that bad of a name if you really think about it

I guess it's not as bad as some of the "ugly" names. But, Destiny is a silly, annoying name. I just feel the mother is thinking "My baby's gonna be a hero", but that's a 1/1000000000 chance...
I think its a sexy name
It's a video game so naming your kid destiny would copy bungie

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😊

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!

My best friend when I was really young was named Shaniqua and I loved her to death! She was a very amazing friend and I happen to think this name is pretty

That would be their last name

My name is Vicki and I love it, it is short for Victoria. My friends love it as well. You have offended so many and I would love to know what your name is. And actually most of these names are normal every-day common name is and you are insulting so many girls. Also its not the fact you have put my name it's the fact that a rude person has said it is one of the worst names and is horrible then expects people named Victoria to think it is okay! Also one of the English queens was called Victoria therefore it is a royal name and can't be that stupid!
My name is Victoria and everyone calls me Vicki I don't particularly like the name but it doesn't deserve to be on this list. It is a really popular name that lots of girls have so you are offending so many people. I would appreciate it if you removed if from this list. Thank you.
