Worst First Names For Girls

The Top Ten
1 Bob

Bob is terrible! I mean everyone just uses that name as a random example. And Bob for a girl? I mean, I'm not judging them, but that's a terrible name!

I don't really like this name, kind of drab, but all of the people who are named Bob take no offense. I used to love this website and now I hate it because I realized that it is racist and mean. My name is Mackenzie, and I love my name. I am really dissapointed. If you agree with me like this.

I don't think that names should be gendered but I abhor the name Bob. I don't care whether a kid is male or female, their parents must really hate them to call them 'Bob'. Bob doesn't sound like the name of a scientist or a successful musician, it sounds like the name of a soon-to-be janitor.

Yeah bob is a girl name too short for Roberta like for boys is Robert but I still don't like it though but that's just me it still a nice name. I like Robert for a boy name but not Roberta for girls for some reason but I still think that it is a kinda good name.

2 Helga

This is the name of the main girl on the Nickelodeon show "Hey Arnold". Remember the girl with the blonde pigtails with a pink bow and a pink dress who kept pushing everyone around and every so often took out a picture of the titular character and professed her love for him? I always thought "Helga" was one of the worst names, and my empathy for the character of the same name has not made me like the name any more than I originally did. In fact, I think any girl with such an unfortunate name should shorten it to "Hells", unless she's Christian.

Really? Who in the right mind would EVER name their daughter HELGA? That name is just poop like really. I don't know ANYONE, who would ever name their daughter Helga. I think that that name is just poop and nobody in their right mind should EVER name their daughter HELGA!

HELGA IS POO

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.

I disagree with you guys entirely (except with the people who are defending this name). If you don't like this name, you don't have to tell the whole world. A girl named Helga could commit suicide just because of these mean comments.

3 Olga

Hi! My name is Olga. I have only 2 teeth. I have a big, hairy wart on my nose. I have grey disgusting hair. My hairstyle consists of 2 braids. I live with my stepmom, Bertha in the woods. She looks just like me. I go to pick wild berries and I feed the squirrels though they seem to run away from me for a reason. Whenever I look in the mirror, it cracks. (How Olga really looks like in my mind)

Geez, it's quite a popular name in Russia. The "l" sound is soft, and the pet version is Olya. One of the early rulers in Russian history bore this name and she was quite a lady, worth of ten GOTR characters (she avenged the death of her son by treacherously exterminating an entire town) It's an old name and it's kinda rough but I don't think it's ugly at all

I think that Olga may not be the best name, however that should't matter. Someone's name does not determine the quality of the person. Just think of the meaning of the name "beautiful". I also think that people should share their truthful opinions while still being polite.

Olga is a beautiful name we are all the same. It's just some people have different names what if I said to nasty things or make stuff up about you? Everyone has gorgeous names even names that or unown people can be so mean

4 Bertha

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 ...more

I agree with the people that are saying that Bertha is an amazing name. Stop trying to jerks for saying that it's a horrible name. And this is coming from a nine year old! People whose name is Bertha would probably get so upset by all of your horrible comments. I think Bertha is one of the most amazing names I have ever heard of in my whole life. I would love to have that name if I was named it.

My name is Joy so I have it pretty easy when it comes to names. But I have a pretty nice friend and she is named Bertha. And you shouldn't judge someone by their name. And I think Bertha is a unique name and you shouldn't tease her because of her name. And Bertha the person who was sticking up for her name I think you didn't just defend you you defended all of the people who are named Bertha.

Admittedly, Bertha isn't one of my favorite names, but I think it's totally wrong to discriminate someone because of their name. Bertha COULD be someone who's kind, smart, funny, pretty, or any combination of those things. And if you're just gonna automatically think all Berthas are fat and ugly and weird, you should be ashamed.

5 Schartzmugel

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.

I don't even know where to begin with this name. First of all, this name sounds like a mix between "Shart" "Mucus" and "Bugle", which are all pretty gross words as it is. Second, the poor person with this name couldn't even have a nickname for it! Like, would they call themselves Mugel or Schartz or something like that? This name is a total sin.

Wait is this a German name or something? I'm confused on how to pronounce it. It kinda looks German but how would I know.
But anyway the only reason I voted for this name was bcs I've never heard it before. No offense to whoever has this name though!

This name makes me want to tinkle. If you love your child do not name it schartzmugel. It reminds me of poo.P. S it is not even in the spelling dictionary. Point is my initial feeling is ugh.

6 Nevaeh

Honestly this name isn't that bad. But that's just my opinion. I think it's a good name for sort of tomboy/casual and not girly people. (Nobody take offense if your name is Nevaeh and you're girly in a way)

It sounds beautiful. I know, I know, it's the opposite of Heaven, but still. You know that show on Treehouse? Splash and Boots? If you don't, look it up. Anyway, they were playing the name game and Boots said, "I heard Neveah." So why would a name equal to Hell show up on a kid show? That proves it's a great name. Maybe the parents didn't know it was Heaven spelled backwards when they named their daughter this.

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 understand the name, and its intention to be sentimental (I believe in God and that it entails). However, a lot of people have turned it into a trashy thing, therefore I don't care for this name and agree it should be on the worst name list :/

7 Boomquifa

This is not really a good name, I just don't like any name that has the word boom in it. The name doesn't really make any sense its like writing with my left hand. Sorry for all the boomquifas out there I was saying my opinion not insulting in case you're about to take offense

Some of these names are some what obnoxious...and on the the other hand some some are very unique in their own little way...so some of you all who are judging peoples names I think you should get something better to do!

I don't understand the hocus pocus opinions of this name. I personally think this name is flattering. I am 7 months pregnant and I am really considering to name my precious baby girl Boomquifa.

I love this name it expresses personality and is so original no one will get confused when there is another girl with this name in her class because it's original. Ima name my first child this

8 Peggy

OKAY PEOPLE! Enough with all the annoying bias comments. First of all, when you tell everyone that your name is the one you're commenting on, you're proving your opinion doesn't count because it is your name. The name Peggy is a fairly nice name... Abut everyone will have different opinions.

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.

Ugh, I think this is one of the worst girl names EVER. It has no grace or class to it. If I had been named Peggy, I would change it. It's ugly to say, and makes me think of some White trash chick who lives in an RV, smokes cigs and wears too much makeup, and has 4 kids from 4 different fathers. Sorry, it just does. HATE THIS NAME!

Laugh out loud! Peggy the pig is more like a legit name. Where do they come up with these things. Extremely annoying. First of all, some of the names here aren't even bad like the on below. McKenzie. I know heaps of people with that name. JEZ

9 Time

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.

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!

Not the best name to have but I guess you could comprehend that the kid's always on time or something. It's not their fault, it's the parents'.

Whatever person named their child Time spiritually threw their child of a cliff with their chances of having a normal life. There would probably be times (whoops) at her school that her friends would be searching up their names on the web and she would just be there like I KNOW ITS 12:30

10 Bobbi-Jean

I like the idea of using just one of these names. But if you do that please choose Jean! Like, Bobbi just sounds like Bob anyways and you know that show on Treehouse that all the preschoolers like? Bobs and Lolo? Bobbi reminds me of Bobs which is just like Bob so there!

My grandmother's name is Bobbi and I think it's a beautiful name. If you don't like this name that's fine but my mom always says if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

I actually like this name. Bobbi is short for Roberta, a name I love, and so is Jean. I would not name my own kid this, but it is beautiful and makes me think of the color pink.

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
11 Prudence

I honestly don't get why people hate this name. When I hear this name I don't think of plums or great aunts or anything like that. I think of a cheerful girl who is always optimistic (like how being "prudent" is being optimistic about the future) I think it could be as pretty as other popular virtue names like Grace and Faith

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.

I had a book about a girl who was learning to potty train when I was little.
The main character's name was Prudence.
I associate that name with pooping now.

I think this is to much like prune and then I think of prune juice which then leads to me thinking of old people that are having-- trouble.

12 Mckenzie

To: The person who called me a "basic-butt"
Excuse me? I know that you are helping to defend everyone here named "Mckenzie" but I would appreciate it if you would stop calling people with classic names a "basic-butt." That is bullying and there is nothing wrong with names like Emily or Chloe. I understand that you don't like beautiful and vintage names but that doesn't give you the right to bully someone with those names. Have your parents ever told you that if someone bullies you, you don't bully back? I understand that you like creative names but that is just your opinion. You can say that you like this name but you can't just criticize people with prototypical names.This isn't my job to teach you common sense, this is your parent's job and I'm only 9. So shameful...

My name is Mackenzie and people should not base their opinion on personal experiences. Say if you were bit by a dog, does that mean that all dogs will bite you? Not all dogs are the same and the same goes for people. I personally love my name and know a few others with the same name, their personalities all very on the personality scale. It's the raising and experiences of the child that shape them. If your child is a brat then I am sorry but you raised them to be like that.

You know, a lot of people have this name, and it sounded sweet, you shouldn't say that Mckenzie is a bad name I mean, it's literally not that bad at all, why is it everyone likes to say mena stuff about the names here, sure they're quite strange but that's not our opinian to say so, who are we? Strangers, we're strangers and we say that Mckenzie, Esmeralda, Peggy, Teeka (ehem that's my little sisters name :/) are ridiculous, it's literally not our place to say, so why can't you ADULTS shut up cause your disrespecting a lot of people whom I realize they have this name but not from your country.

Have your eleven year old know that unfortunately, people have preferences in terms of sounds that they feel are better than other. Never take it personally, because more often than not its easier to dehumanize another when they don't know them. That said...

Frankly, I wouldn't name my daughter McKenzie because it makes no sense to name a girl "SON of Coinneach."

If you like Mackie as a nickname the dominant sound is AG or AK, so I'd suggest, Maggie which is short for Magdalene (varied spellings). Personally, I don't care for the sharp A sound in girl's names and if I had a nickname for McKenzie, it'd probably be Mickey or Kenzie. Just me! :D

13 Shaniqua

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.

Please stop putting random names that you think are not pretty on the list. I like the name shaniqua it sounds exoctic to me in a beautiful way. To everyone who thinks their name sucks who cares if one insignificant person thinks its ugly? Its just a stupid list

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 si actually pretty "haters gonna hate but I just gonny shake" (like a boss :P) its sound like a mermaids name or fairy like its like name from the... the... OCEAN CITY I know I know its sound stupid... but HEY it's my though so... deal with it (nailed it)

14 Alexis

Alexis is a beautiful name! It should so not be on this list like, my fourth name is Alexis and I get complimented like this:

Girl: what's your fourth name if you have one?

Me: Alexis

Girl:! That's a beautiful fourth name you got there!

However thinks Alexis is horrible you will be cursed, because my name is Alexis! I get compliments that Alexis is a beautiful name, how do you like that however thinks Alexis is a hideous name? huh how do you

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 one of my best friends name and it is beautiful. Why do people think it's a bad name? I think it is amazing and I would choose it for my daughter.

15 Teeka

Most of these names that honestly just don't sound very good (not to be rude) I have never heard on a person before. I never heard of a person named Teeka. So if I haven't met or heard of anyone using these names really, that makes total sense because SOME people in the world actually know the difference between right and wrong and make such rightful deed to all humanity by not naming their child an ugly name!

I know a tameeka, does that count?

Honestly, this sounds like the name of a very kind girl, one that has no problem making friends. I imagine someone with this name wouldn't let it get in their way, but sooner or later, they may come to not like it. the girl may not appreciate this name, but it really does sound like a modest name.

There was a little girl who's name was Teeks. She was kidnapped and her family hasn't seen her since. She was only four years old. She would be a young woman now. Teeka is a beautiful name.

Teeka sounds cute and wonderful. Sounds like Tina. I could imagine a cute little baby named Teeka. Stop being so mean. Bullies.

16 Yazmine

To: The person that is annoyed with the eleven year old. I honestly think that YOU should get a life, not the eleven year old. And the eleven year old is not being pathetic. Plus, you said that it's fine that people say what they think, right? Well the eleven year old is just saying what she/he thinks. He/she just thinks it's wrong what people are saying about these names and I agree. If people have some mean things to say then they should keep them to themselves. From: The nine year old that commented on the name Bertha.

To everyone here getting welled up with the fighting: I know the person you're criticizing. She's my little cousin. I know because she told me about this. She was ten. TEN. Yes, she was even younger than 11. Chill people, I'm pretty sure you grown ups/teenagers have better things to do than all teaming up and beating this poor little kid up for just commenting against a post that she was annoyed at. Calm down and go for a walk.

This is an amazing name you are all disappointing. I love this name and so do others out there. You should be ashamed to have to be told by an 11 year old to stop making fun of little precious child's names. I like every name on this list and yet all you people do is make fun of amazing child's names. Bye!

I think yazmine is a great name. My name is yazmine. So what if it's a pill or whatever. This name is unique. It's usually jasmine or Yasmin. When is it Yazmine? I can count on one hand how many other people I know who have this name. ZERO. Plus if your gonna comment on the name spell it right.

17 Varaminta

Users who reads this name will experience nausea gas diarrhea drowsiness and the feeling to puke your instetines out!

You people are terrible for putting mean comments like that! So SHUT UP!
From the nine year old.

Just AT LEAST take away the Vara (whatever that means) and just keep it Minta perhaps.

Sounds cute, like mint. Stop making fun of these great names!

18 Moon Unit

Moon Unit?
That's it, she's the new protagonist of my novel.
Also, I'm naming my daughter this.

Kidding. I'm pretty sure whoever posted this was a troll.

Moon I could get. Eeh, I could get Unit as a name. But not together maybe as a first and middle name like Moon Unit Landing (hehe I laugh at my own joke) WHO am I kidding! I love this name!

Horrible name.. A yes a real name. Frank Zappa named his daughter this she is known for her song Valley Girl... look it up!

Ok, I think someone just needed a name to put as number 24, so they just took the first two names they could think of and said it was a name.

19 Aayan

No Aayan is a nice name! I have friends named Aayan. Don't judge a book by its cover!

20 Anous

I truly think that people should spend more time thinking about what society will say about these names. So what if Anous is the most beautiful name in your opinion? Your kid is gonna get bullied!

So..if someone was called Anous that would be weird. but on the first day of school even weirder,here is how a conversation would go like on the first day with your new teacher: "Hello children,today I would like to know your names! let us start with you pretty young lady with the peach bow,what is your name? " "oh me? my name is anous! " the children would laugh and wo ever calls their pretty child anous is obviously dirty minded and is festy for sex this isn't right.

I just want to know the origin of this name now. Does anyone know how and where this name evolved because that seems like it'd be really interesting.

Disrespectful to the child, nobody's gonna take them seriously if they're named "Anous".

21 La-a

Why, parents, Why? If you have to give your child this name, at least change it to Ledasha. I mean no offense to anybody who has this name, this is just my personal opinion, so I'm really sorry if I insulted anybody.

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?

La-a is awesome. It's very cool. Whoever created this name was, like, the smartest parent ever. If anyone disagrees with me, then fine. Be like that.

It's a sorta cuter name I think it would be an odd name when they are like 20 because it would sound childish that's just my opinion though.

22 Adair

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!

An old teacher of mine had this as her last name, its no worse than any other last name turned first name.

Two hours later, Adair's parents were arrested and thrown into juvi. Yes, juvenile detention, kids. Cause that's how that sounds.

Not everyone here is American you know. My parents are from Iran and I am from America but my name is still Persian

23 Grogda

What if you walked up to a really hot blond girl at the beach? "What is your name? " you asked.
"Grogda," the hottie replied. Would you turn right around and leave just because of her name? You probably would. Don't judge by names OR looks. I know a lot of people who date other people just because they look good. A girl named Grogda could be looking at all your rude comments right now, and she could be crying and hating herself. Stop the mean comments!

Somebody's parents must of just let their cat stand on their keyboard to decide a name...

It's like what you'd name a green toad or a green witch. Anything green.

The perfect name if your skin are leaf green.

24 Sue

I think this name gets a bad rep because of two reasons.
One, it's pretty common and plain.
Two, a Mary Sue is a fictional character who is perfect. Like no flaws at all and a ton of superpowers. But that's just my opinion.

My friend's mother's name is Sue. Jeez. You guys don't have to call any name ugly. No name is ugly or bad. A parent could name their child whatever they want. So what if it's Peggy or Time or Bertha or La-a? So what? Those names are great names, and every name in this list. Also every name a child was ever called. The name Sue is awesome.

There is nothing wrong with this name. It is a very common name and I hate this site for doing this and criticizing people's names. You put other people Down! Considering I know 6 sue's, stop it! This is wrong and this name is quite fine... Lovely actually if I do say so myself. So HATERS BACK OFF!

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.

25 Danica

DaniKa is adorable! I don't like Danica as much. But it's not the worst - sausagea and fanny are much worse.

What's wrong with it
