Top Ten Names That Work for Adults But Not for Babies


The Top Ten

1 Larry

Funny Story, when I was born I was almost named Larry because of my older brother. He saw Spongebob a lot and loved Larry the Lobster and because of that I was almost named Larry.

I don't think it would work for a young boy.

Never would call my baby this. - funnyuser

Impractical Jokers!

2 Bob

Bobby or Robert would work, but I would never call my baby Bob. - Kevie16

But all adults were once babies... - SammySpore

Actually this is works for a baby more than a adult - venomouskillingmachine

3 Olga

This name doesn't work for anyone ever. - SammySpore

I hate this name. - RiverClanRocks

This doesn't work no matter how old you are

It reminds me of “old guy.”

4 Clarence

What kind of baby name is that? Just no.

Not the Cartoon Network show. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

5 Jean

No. This is perfect for babies! It fits their cuteness. Just imagine a baby in little pigtails and clothes, only to find that their name is Jean! Adorable on girls but horrible on boys. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

Not a good baby name. That's my granny's name and it suits and elderly person fine but it's not for a baby. Sorry if I have made anyone annoyed by saying that xx

6 George

What about the latest member of our Royal Family? - PositronWildhawk

I kinda looks like old man's name - zuni

7 Bertha

Not really, if someone just gave berth to her - Songsta41

8 Bruce
9 Gertrude

How come every single book I read it has to have somebody's aunt named Gertrude? Gertrude is a good name for aunts. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I wouldn't name my kid Gertrude. - letdot52

Does Gertrude work for anyone? - Songsta41

10 Mildred

It sounds like mild or miserable, dang. I don't want that name (Probably cause it's a girl name but still)

This is a really weird name. - RockFashionista
