Top 10 Worst Names of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Gaylord

This is so funny, if I was called Gaylord, I would not like it, I would do something to myself, like stab my self, or scratch my skin off with a needle. Because it is a very stupid name to call someone. And it could be offensive to some boys. One day this kid called Gaylord was kicked out out of school because of this.

This makes me think of a male gymnast from the 1984 Olympics named Mitch Gaylord. I would bet my savings during his youth and adolescence, when people say his full name they would change the "M" in Mitch to a "B". Poor guy...

This name was created way before the word "Gay" was changed to mean homosexual. It meant something along the lines of "Happy" so this name would actually suit some people before the 20th century.

2 Adolf

Why isn't this name above Gaylord? Gays are usually perfectly harmless, but Adolf is the name of the world's most evil person of all time, who was responsible for the killing of so many Jews. People would laugh at you for being called Gaylord, but would throw things at you for being called Adolf.

Why is this on here? Look I know that there was some guy named Adolf Hitler horrible terrible man disgrace to society. But that does not mean the name itself is bad. Adolf Hitler is often compared to Joseph Stalin in evilness, but the name Joseph is very common and I do not see it on this list.

Forget about Hitler. Think about Adidas, which was founded by Adolf Dassler! He called himself "Adi". You get it? You have Adi, his nickname, and then you have Das, which is part of his last name. Combine them and you get Adidas, a shoe name that we all know and love! No Adolf, no Adidas!

3 Dick

I know most people know this. But there's a store called Dick's. And if your name is Dick... You DO NOT name a store after yourself. I'm sorry for all you Dicks out there-- wow, that sounds so wrong.

Who the HECK thought of a name like this?! I hate cursing and I hate this name and the word. It means something really nasty and I pray for the people named this O Lord!

Dick is short for Richard. Pretty much mom and dad would be better off naming their child the latter, because immature people are increasing in numbers.

4 Version 2.0

I think their parents are lifeless scientists that spend too much time with their electronics to the point that they care more about their electronics than their kids and don't know how to raise a real kid, so they name their kid a computer name to make it easier on themselves.

I'm sorry but are people on the top 10's this retarded? I thought it was bad enough to have Justin beiber on almost every list but version 2.0? no one names there kid that

"Hey, Mr. Computer how do I turn on your cousin Version 2.0 he doesn't like me... I keep trying to turn him on by pressing the 'on' button but he keeps turning off! Please help me! "

5 Alexis

Alexis is horrible because it's basically Alex modified. It's Alex by adding an "is" to it, which makes " Alex is"
It also sort of disrespects me cause my name is Alex. Also it disrespects all Alex's, including the guy who destroyed the Persian empire.

How is Alexis a bad name? Really give me one good reason... that's right there is no good reason. There is a girl who name is alexis and she is so sweet. that's really mean!

My little sister is the cutest thing in the world; she just got out of the hospital and her name is Alexis. I call her lex Lexi and I love her

6 Pubert

No offense to anyone with this name, but do parents actually name their children this? You know if you want to call them Bert you could always name them Bertrand or Hubert; but really, Pubert?!

You know those cute little nicknames that evolve from your real name, like Owie from Owen, or something. His would be Puberty. Ha Ha. " Oh, Puberty! Come here, I want you right here. " Ha Ha ha ha!

Pubert sounds like Hubert. laugh out loud. Puberty, like that other guy said. I don't mean to be mean (weird repeat of words), in fact, my name (classified due to privacy. you Mad? ) is made fun of too in another list by a very un-funny idiot.

7 Porky

Porky pig. Loony Toons. I love that show, even though it came on maybe 60 or 70 years before I was born.

Okay all I got to say is pork tastes bad.. I used to love but now no way. Porky is the worst name ever!

Like that boy/ girl is fatter than a pig. And got a sibling named beefy, maybe a father named fishy.

8 Moon Unit

It sounds like a robot name, or some sort of name for a rocket that is supposed to land on the moon. "Moon Unit! Time for dinner data! " Says mom. "Coming mom unit! "

Yeah... this is a name. From the ever creative mind of Frank Zappa.

Wow, I wonder how lance Armstrong felt when he was called nerd?!?! /1/!?!?

9 Caca

Caca means crap in Romanian and it's a very ugly word. From the other comments, I learned it doesn't only mean that in Romanian. There were some poor villages in Romania called Cacova meaning crappy, but the Communists changed their names. You can say whatever you want about Communists, but I think they did a good thing for these villagers.

A Brazilian Stock Car driver called Caca Bueno finished 3rd in the recent season. His name means "poop good" or "poop well". That's a horrible name to have. Imagine him going on to the podium and the announcer saying, "Give it up for our race winner, Poop Well! " That is so embarrassing. by the way, bueno means good in Spanish.

Caca means poo is Spanish... yeah who calls their kid that
"I'm going to call them caca! "
"caca doesn't that mean poo in Spanish? "
"exactly! "

10 Olga

My name is Olga. I lived in London, so when I was younger people in my class didn't see anything wrong with it. But after 1 year there was this new kid in my class and he noticed that my name sounds just like the word oger(one of those green monster eg Shrek). Then I got bullied and everyone called me Oger, Shrek, green blob( I was quite chubby) or monster. Then I moved back to Poland, were I originally came from, and I got lots of compliments on my name

It's a common name in Slavic countries, cognate to Helga. In Russian it is pronounced with a soft L, a sound which is absent from English, and does not sound harsh. Nothing wrong with it in my opinion.

I had an English teacher named Olga, she was a terrible teacher, she pronounced island "is-land" and she scolded me in front of the whole class when I pointed out her mistake.

The Contenders
11 Ian

The worst nickname of all time (in my world) is Baby Ian, when you look at the words, it's not so bad, but when you are like having a super bad day and your temper is rising, your mortal enemy calls you a baby... >=( but with the name Ian is just so much worse... I pity the Ian s in the universe...

I know why is it here.
That's the meaning of Ian
But how's that be a bad name? Huh, We are all nothing,guys. I think this list is too offensive.

This name is pretty boring..

12 Gavyn

I hope you know that gods mum (yes I said mum) named him Satan but she also named God so are they both horrible names to you or is God a good name to you?

Really? This is what happens when ghetto people try to make up names, which they think are so cool, for their kids.

I'm pretty sure the name originated from people trying to make fun of boys named Gavin.

13 Opal

Actually, Opal is a gemstone. I wouldn't name my child Opal though, it doesn't really have a nice ring to it. But it does look good written down. :P

In 4th grade we had to read because of winn-dixie and the main characters middle name is Opal but I always called her by her first name India.

This name is a nerd name I mean it doesn't even symbolize anything.

14 Fluffy

Reminds me of a furry cat or dog. Hey Fluffy want to fight? Might sound like your to soft and going to lose. Is he or she actually furry?

This name is so bad, that George from the "Captain Underpants" was forced to change his first name to Fluffy.

Random person "hey want to see Fluffy"
Other person "oh is that your cat"
"What no"
"Pet bunny? "
"No! "
"Then who is Fluffy? "
"Fluffy is my Aunts name"
"...rlly? "
"Yes she's nice"
"I will destroy you"

15 Sextina

Parents: We should boost our child's probability of becoming a hooker!
Friend: How?
Parents: By naming her Sextina!

This woman better watch out because there are a lot of perverts out there who love these type of names!

Someone HAD to be abusing this kid come on this name isn't normal it's like she's a s.e.x slave for her evil stepdad!

16 Eugene

"Eugene Krabs! You need to stop sniffing your money and start managing the Krusty Krab! " I don't mean to be offensive, it was just too tempting.

It sounds like that kid in school with the dorky glasses and freckles.

When I think about this name, it's like "Eugene Krabs! ".

17 Le-a

This name is actually pronounced "Le-dash-a". You pronounce the dash. If you don't believe me, look it up. Stupidest name ever.

When there is a dash in the middle of a name, you know it is going to be hard to pronounce.

Did they like accidentally make a pencil mark when filling out the birth certificate?

18 Gertrude

I always hear this name in cartoons and nowhere else. Let's try to keep it that way.

I was almost named this. Good thing I got Grace.

Any name with "rude" in it is not a good idea.

19 Cody

Sorry I voted so I could say that this is a cool name! My friend's name is Cody and he is so sweet! Gertrude is unfortunate tho

This is from Warrior Cats you know... see the second series.

It just sounds really weird to me... I don't know

20 Alex
21 Bartholomew

Barry Allen thank you very much... his full name is Bartholomew Henry Allen

Same like my comment on John. Bartholomew is one of Jesus apostles

Sounds like you're throwing up.

22 Alexander

You think Alex is a bad name? I'm afraid for your future. It rocks!

Sounds like drinks all night! cheers

23 John

Why is my name on here? Why is it bad? At least it's not ridiculous like Gaylord or Shaniqua

EXCUSE me, my crush is called John, and so is my uncle!

What's wrong with the name?

24 Erwin

I think some one has been watching too much Attack On Titan and for some reason really hates the Survey Corps. They are obviasly sick in the head.

Reminds me of a bug disguised as a leaf for some reason.

It sounds like a little kid trying to say "Erin".

25 Boris

It's a Bulgarian/Romanian name. To foreigners it might sound weird, but to those where it's used, it's normal.

When Trump has a better haircut than the most famous person with your child's name you should give up.

Boris is Boring! That's the first thing I thought of, so people may want to steer clear from this one.
