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!? =(


[Newest]Bob can't fix how bad her name is

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.
[Newest]Helga... What evil thing posses a person to name their child that?

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.
[Newest]This is how you tell someone is white- they think that it is a ghetto name, and that's how its bad.

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]Sounds like a fat female weightlifter! Same goes for Helga

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.
[Newest]Sounds like a viking

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<<<<
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.
[Newest]When I think of Peggy, I think Piggy. Enough said.

It sounds like someones ancient great aunt
Prudence sounds like plum and it sounds werid
Prudence... it reminds me of a dry, shrivelled plum...
[Newest]Old woman name, again.

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]I have always disliked this name. I would never make fun of someone because the parents gave them a bad name though! It's NOT their fault!
You are really mean because you are just making fun of peoples names. Get a life

My grandmothers dog name was sue she was a girl.

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.
This is a horrible name... Little baby... Sue?
You are a selfish, mean and stupid for making fun of peoples names you wouldn't like it if someone done that to you
[Newest]I love the name Sue it's very pretty

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 in the world do you pronounce it!? :(

The Contenders

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)
I just don't know whether these parents were drunk or actually thought it was a cool name.. Because if they did... Poor kid..
How do you pronounce that anyway? La dash a?
[Newest]Its pronounced la (comma)

Okay that's a weird name. Ly awesome!
It is a WONDERFUL name if you take away a few letters, it will b emerald a JewEL!

[Newest]Another gorgeous name from the Spanish speaking world.

Sounds like a curry!
Teeka, what the heck, I have never ever ever ever heard of this name, ever this name is so stupid
What kinda name is that?
[Newest]Teeka sounds kinda like a bird in Hawaii.

It reminds me of the Michael Jackson song Billie jean.
Bobbi jean come on really
Sounds like a joke
[Newest]Like... Really bobbi-jean? Isn't bobbi a boys name and bobbi-jean sounds like billie-jean, I mean who would name their daughter that?


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]My friends name is Yasmine so you better back it up bro

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.


It's a guys name. It doesn't sound pretty when you say it. It's mean to give a girl the name Peyton (or Payton). I feel sorry for anyone stuck with it. It doesn't mean you're not a lovely person (if that's your name). You need a good nick-name.
[Newest]Not that bad of a name if you really think about it

It's not terrible, but still. That would kind of stink.
Kinda sounds like verify my mints

Sounds like a character in a fairytale.
You guys do realize the history of the name Ninel, right? It was invented during the Russian Revolution, it's literally "Lenin" spelled backwards. I speak Russian fluently, I know these things.

This is actually my favorite name for a girl... I love it, it's a pretty name.
Why should this name be on this list its pretty and this list is mean and cruell
This is that name of the woman I love. This is cruel to put this name on this list.
[Newest]Heather is in ugly name

Really ungirly name! Kimberly is better
Seriously. Sounds like pretzel! What? Were they drunk when they named her?
It does sound like pretzel
Psh. Everyone would go round calling her Pretzel.

Valerie is a great name! My sister has that name, and I've always thought that it fits her so beautifully!
That's my sister's name :(
That's my name :(
[Newest]Sounds like a lesbian

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]That right there is child abuse

Does anyone know that is miley cyrus's real name? Oh wait or is that why it's here?
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
[Newest]It's a video game so naming your kid destiny would copy bungie

What kind of name is that? Ugly

I'm so terribly sorry for anyone named Morag. You would have to live your whole life with the knowledge that your name is MORAG. Horrible. Absolutely horrible.
How do you even say this name?
[Newest]My name is similar...


Seriously? It's the cheesy HG fans name for their poor daughters after Finnick Odair in the 3rd book dies! Way to go, darlin'!
That was my MALE teachers last name
What is this name? I really think that this is not socially acceptable. You should not name a child after a product or some non-American name if they are American! It doesn't make sense!
[Newest]This is a beautiful name!

This is the most beautifullest name ever and it happens to be my sisters name so back off! You should be ashamed! You obviously don't know what ugly is! Go look in the mirror
This is a beautiful name! Way better than most names on this list!
That is my cousins name and it is a awesome name
[Newest]I love this name

It is an ugly name.
[Newest]My auntie was gonna be called this but luckily the name Darlene got picked out of an hat...

Pablo is a beautiful, Spanish name. The fact that is different and you are not used to hear it, doesn't mean is ugly. The same with Esmeralda, which is a very feminine name in the Spanish world.
I've only heard this name on boys...
Ew that name like go away. Its sounds like Walrus like Pablo Walris

Way too common and overused. And how many ways can you spell one name?!
Kaitlyn is such a pretty name, name for a beautiful girl!
This name sounds good and rolls off your lips, I don't know why this is here on this list but it shouldn't be.

Really? Faith is such a beautiful name!
Faith is my cousin's name! I love this name it's ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I'm not happy to see it on the list =(
Faith is my best friend's name. I think it's pretty.
[Newest]So overused and overdone. Come up with something unique.

The word "Merced" in Spanish means "Mercy: or "Grace" and Mercedes comes from the tradition of naming girls after the Virgin Mary. "Nuestra Señora de las Mercedes" or "Our Lady of Mercies."

It is a very common name in the Spanish speaking world, and has NOTHING to do with the car. Naming your child after a car is tacky. But that's not what is happening here!


Who names there child on something they want
My friend was like I'm gonna have twin girls one named Mercedes and the other Jordyn. I was like Damn why are you thinking of having kids at twelve and isn't that a boys name and he other a car. She was like yeah but I love it. I think it is cruel and my friend needs some help

This is a beautiful quick, short name!
Real name of wonderful Britgirl.


[Newest]Reminds me of "Tina you fat lard come get some dinner"

It sounds like salah from a Indonesian language in Indonesia, salah means wrong XP


Awesome name! If your daughter is a villain on Space Ghost.
I don't care for that name! Why would you name your beautiful baby girl such a stank name?
My daughter's name is Braxton. It is a family last name and although it is a more masculine, I think it is lovely.

I think Georgina is a good name
That's a really pretty name it's the name of Mr Darcy's little sister and it's David Tennant's wife's name
It's a mainly kind of name personally George Georgina Sounds like what a guys friends will tease there other friends
This is a beautiful name don't insult it

I am 9 years of age my name is Ravin and I think its a good name but people thinking its a bad name doesn't bother me because havinga name like Ravin makes me feel more confident about myself
I like the name Raven.

That is my 87 year old grandmother's name

This is not an ugly name like really this name is really nice I honestly don't see how this name is ugly
That's my name. That's really mean. And offensive
That's not a bad name! My best friends name is Kaitlyn!
[Newest]It's only on this list because it's overused. And they don't care whether or not it's your name.

Don't be so rude that's your opinion not everybody's! Anyway it is amazing

Yeah, I'm not fawning over this name. It's Bambi all over again.
Fawn is a great name, why are people making fun of it?

This is a wonderful name how dare you make fun of it I don't know about you but you should think before you say!
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😊

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.
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, short for karkat you mean... BEEP BEEP MEOW!
[Newest]It's a really cute name, but it's too common and overused.

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)
! What person in this world would name their child Shaniqua!?
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
[Newest]I will never cease to find this name infuriating. Shaniqua... I had to LOOK to spell this name. What child could remember and/or WANT such a name?!

Some people call me that because apparently I look like Frankenstein's monster, it annoys me so much and sometimes I actually want to hit the people in the face with a brick.
I like the name Frankey. I might even name one of my kids Frankey.
Ok frankie is not a bad name... My name is frankie you don't here a lot of girls called frankie, it is a unique name, it can be a boys or a girls name. People tell me all that time that they like my name.
You should name your kid Frankie that's my name and people tell me its pretty all the time, my parents call me Frank for short.

Sorry, but it sounds like maggot. Not a good thing to have your name sound like.
It's nice name, my best friend name is Magda

This is my name and I changed it because nobody seems to be able to pronounce it. Seriously, it's only 4 letters long! How can there be so many incorrect pronounciations for a 4-letter name?! (I've heard at least 10-15 now! )

Whoever named their kid sedona doesn't know that is a company and mountain


And know what there's someone I know that has this dumb name

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

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!

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.
