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.

Impractical Jokers!

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

Never would call my baby this. - funnyuser

Not the Cartoon Network show. - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

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
