The Top Ten

1
Helga
Just listen to it. Would you want to go out with a girl with this name?
The name Helga may not be the best but the quality of the woman should determine weather or not you want to date her or not. A girl with the name Helga could be the most wonderful person in the world and by your logic you would dismiss her based on her 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.
[Newest]Helga From Hey Arnold?


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

moose4life19

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!? =(

[Newest]Excuse me its plain idiocy to name a girl bob.

3Olga
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!
[Newest]Very gross sounding name

4Bertha
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!
Bertha sounds like the name of a fat and ugly girl that nobody likes. There's a character in the How to Train Your Dragon books that... Oh God I get the willies thinking of her. I know a girl in real life named Bertha and when I went to her sleepover her mom took us to McDonald's for dinner, to Burger King for breakfast, and to Checkers for lunch. She's fatter than Violet from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory when Violet turns into a blueberry and she's super ugly and she even named her own ZITS! She named one of them Bertha Jr. She named one of the other zits after the boy she had a crush on. Bertha is always the name of some nasty person. Who knows a popular girl named Bertha? NOBODY. Imagine a popular girl name Bertha.

Hot Guy: So who do you have a crush on?
Hot Dude: That cute girl, Bertha.
Hot Guy: Oh she's so pretty. What a flawless face!
Hot Dude: I know right!

That would be messed up. Nothing like the Bertha I know. Whoever would name their daughter Bertha has no taste in names.
All of these names are beautiful! You people should be so ashamed of yourselves. And this is coming from a twelve-year-old. How pathetic. Maybe you may not like these names, and there are names that I don't like either, but you know what? We keep those kinds of comments to ourselves. The world doesn't need to hear your stupid opinions. I'm sure everyone on the planet heard this one as a kid: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
[Newest]Bertha,I'm gonna agree, is a VERY ugly name. I think this name should be #1 on this list, or at LEAST #2.

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.
I like this name but I realized it's the opposite of heaven. And I know someone named this and she went through child abuse... Yeah but I think the name is pretty.
When I hear this name, I think "tacky" and "ghetto. " It's not creative. It's not pretty. It's bad. Just bad.
[Newest]Ugh it is popular if you name your kid this she will have like have 50,000 other girls at her school named the same thing

6Schartzmugel
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.
[Newest]How do you pronounce this?

7Peggy
Excuse me! My mom's name is Peggy and I think that it is a WONDERFUL name!
Peggy lacks grace and femininity. It makes me think of Peggy from King of the Hill, someone with two "peg legs", or a waitress you meet in a diner on some god-forsaken exit of a desert interstate in the deep south.
WORST NAME EVER. PERIOD. END. OF. STATEMENT. Sorry... It's just bad. I mean... Peggy? EESH. Little baby... Peggy? YIKES! Peggy<<<<
[Newest]It's a normal name nothing wrong

8Boomquifa
Um, please don't play with me
No Way.. A parent that gives an innocent child that name should go to jail.
This name is RIDICULOUS! How would you even pronounce this name? All the horrible teasing I could think of came all too easily...
[Newest]How is this even a name?

9Sue
My grandmothers dog name was sue she was a girl. A very nice it was mean what you said I think it is a wonderful name for dog cat any girl baby beside you can't tell people what to name there child some girls in the world might have that name name and think it is pretty I think it is a pretty name not trying to be mean but I like the name sue
This is a horrible name... Little baby... Sue?
My mum is called Sue... She is the most wonderful person I know, and that is not being biased.
Sue... Isn't really a good name. And reminds me a lot on Mary Sue. :/ I know it isn't the names fault, but still.
And you know, suing someone... No thanks, I rather give some other name to a girl.
[Newest]This name sounds really sweet and innocent, I just don't like it. I wouldn't name my child this. It's flattering, but I don't want to name my children names that everybody has like Michael and Mary and Sue is too frequent of a name.

10Bobbi-Jean
It reminds me of the Michael Jackson song Billie jean.
Bobbi jean come on really
Sounds like a really funny joke (I feel sorry for those girls called this)
[Newest]I can't really say anything about this name because I don't do two names for a first name like Mary-Kate. It's just too confusing. Maybe Bobbi or Jean alone will be fine.

The Contenders

11La-a
Looks like someone watched Tre melvins video '9 month hoe'
Who the heck names their kid la (dash) a? How ghetto can you get? I mean, its almost as bad as pajama. (Pronounced pajamay)
If I had that name I wouldn't be worrying about being bullied, I would be worrying about how my parents decided to give me that name, I mean did my parents do singing practise or were they drunk when my Mum gave birth to me?

12Prudence
It sounds like someones ancient great aunt
Prudence sounds like plum and it sounds werid
Prudence? Seriously! You might as well name her Potato and be done with it! That right there is child abuse, folks. Anyone who names a sweet baby, Prudence should go to jail.
[Newest]It sounds elegant and sophisticated, you could probably name your child this if you come from a rich, first-class family.

13Time
TIME!? Rly, oh sweet Jesus I pray for the poor child whose name is time, honestly you might as well call your other child clock!
Wouldn't be so embarrassing if your name was Time and if somebody asked what the time was and you reply saying your age or date of birth or anything personal. But I guess that there are worst names such as Helga. I suppose the recommendation of this name though would be 2 out of 10 for my choice.
Okay, I know a couple of people who named their child after a word, thinking that it's pretty like Chemistry and Miracle (Miracle is NOT a pretty name by the way), but Time is just stupid. If you want to name your child something pretty, name them Robyn or Amethyst.

[Newest]I thought that the company is only meant to put names on this website... Not an object or to describe something

14Shaniqua
What the hell! Which poor child wants to be called Shaniqua at any time in their life! Isn't this an offensive name for a black person? (not being racist here, I just don't have another word to substitute)
This name is actually beautiful! A lot of these are. I think I am going to use this name in a book, that's how much I like it! AND GUESS WHAT? There are people in this world named Shaniqua! And how do you think Shaniqua feels when she sees her name on the ugly name list, next to a bunch of nasty comments? Huh? I am 11 years old and all you people out there with your cruel comments should think twice before you push submit.
This is my name and the second I saw all of these cyber-bullyers I knew those people in real life are jerks, I mean who just sits on there computer and types up mean thing about others names, I bet that they are saying these affensive things on here because there names would be like Poo or Stupid ( I can see how they got there names) but I would like to thank those two people that stood up for this wonderful name seeing that I am the youngest here ( I am only 11 years old) and I am going to remember this for the rest of my life knowing that everyone hates my name so the first day when I am 18 I am going to change my name to something people would apreshiate.
[Newest]People keep calling my friend this name when it isn't even her real name.

15Mckenzie
Yes I like the name I have no problem with the name because I know a lot of people with the name
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.
I kind of like the name, more because you can shorten it to Mackie.
[Newest]This name is really pretty, it's just that EVERY girl has this name. I probably won't name my child McKenzie, but I have almost no problem with it. Whoever put this on the list must be picky or something.

16Teeka
Teeka, what the heck, I have never ever ever ever heard of this name, ever this name is so stupid
Sounds like a curry!
Honestly my opinion on any name is that people shouldn't judge others by their names because their parents must of took a long time to decide what to name their child even if it does sound strange. Imagine if you had a name like this and everyday you got bullied and you can't change it because you can't change your name so you might as well decide to live with it.
[Newest]Why would you call your child that it's just so wrong! 😄

17Grogda
, this is just wrong. Who would name their kid that! It sounds like your child is an old witchy troll or something.
It's like what you'd name a green toad or a green witch. Anything green.
Don't play with me that name sounds like the the word groggy

18Varaminta
It's not terrible, but still. That would kind of stink.
Kinda sounds like verify my mints
I like it because it kind of sounds tropical. It can also be shortened to Minty

19Yazmine
This is not a bad name! I have a friend named Yasmin!
I love the name. It is a princess name, Bratz girl name, and a name that is not used much.
I guess its a good name... I like Kalysta better..
[Newest]I love it! It sounds unique, kind and social

20Surtiyem
I never heard that name before. But it does make you sound as you were crazy, low-headed and dumb. A parent giving their child this name should go straight to prison. It sounds like the word sodium, what is she a scientist?
Ah sounds like some kinda made up name!
Surtiyem is an old fashion name that came in the 15th centenary but who cares it's just a name, it's not like it changes the personality.
