Worst British Names

Everyone knows that some people have awful name but which is the worst.

The Top Ten

1 Ian

Crap name and I'm called it

I agree terrible name

Worse name ever

Ian stands for "I'm gay".

2 Horatio

Another name inspired by Shakespeare's play. It pronounced "Ho-ray-show".

What kind of a name is this? Who would want to call their child this?

Sound like Japanese name

Just horrible

3 Angus

I've always hated this name...

This kinda makes me laugh really hard. I don't think you should name your children like this

Why is "Spike" listed twice that is really stupid. Angus is the worst by far.

Ugly boy who thinks he's something

4 Rupert

That's Mr. Rigsby's name in Rising damp. Don't know any real-life Rupert's. I wonder what he'd look like.

It sounds stupid when u say it

5 Daffyth

A real tongue twister, that repeats the same noise several times

How do you pronounce this?

Thou hath dabbeth problems

6 Ashley

This is definitely a girls name because I mean like I had a bully in middle school called Ashley he was a boy... so it doesn't really make me like the name.

I actually LOVE this name, I don't get why you put it in here. Ashley is cool and spicy in some way, and also it could be nicknamed 'Ash' and that's awesome.

Isn't this a girls name?

But I reakon ashley is I really REALLY! Nice name I wasnt expecting to see it here and not just because my names ashley because its NICE!

7 Abigail

this is my name... And I LIKE it, thank you very much.

Pretty cool name if I say so myself

Ha ha this is ma sisters name

8 Margret

Margret ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! That is ' G R O S S!.

Margreb is a crap name

9 Shep

I called my german shepheard like this! see shep can be for dogs but not for people! and The dog is from nintendogs

Worst ever taken from that horrible Elvis song Old Shep if you suffer by having this name I feel sorry for you

no offense but it sounds like a dogs name

That's an awful name why would you name your kid that?

10 Bert

Reminds me of that sesame street character...

Who in their right mind would call their child bert.

Reminds me of a toad

The Contenders

11 Donald

Donald duck maybe but no person should have this awful name.

Donald Trump anybody.

Donald Trumpet.

Donald trump trumper

12 Gertrude

What even is this

13 Keira

Worst name ever sounds german

The name of a terrible British actress

It's my name...

14 Rufus

Not my favorite name. I can't really picture it on a kid.

Sounds like a good name for a dog.

Its totally a dog name!

15 Nigel

The name given to the leader of the UKIP party. Even hearing the name makes me cringe.

Wots wrong with nige

16 Adele Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is an English singer and songwriter. Graduating from the BRIT School for Performing Arts and Technology in 2006, Adele was given a recording contract by XL Recordings after a friend posted her demo on Myspace the same year. She is best known with her international hit singles ...read more.

The singer Adele has just ruined the name for me. I never liked it to begin with but she just brought on an outright hate for the name. Terrible name.

Love Adele and she just the better, just an opinion.

No that is nice name

Adelelelelellelelelele is my catz name bruh

Honestly as somebody named 'Archie' it's so infuriating to hear somebody call ya 'Archibald' but if somebody called me 'Archibal' I might just throat punch them I don't know

18 Tred

Who would call someone this

19 Ingrid

Who is desperate enough to call their child Ingrid? This should be at number 1 position

Ingrid, like Ingrid Newkirk the animal terrorist! Hahaa


20 Andrew

Ugly name worse name ever. It sounds so weak and girly

Andrew is a great name girly my arse. St Andrew is Scotland’s patron saint 😁

21 Cuthbert

I don’t know who in their right mind would name their child this, but it’s an okay last name (Anne Of Green Gables anyone? )

No one should name their child this... ever!

I'm pretty sure this is a spice

It's a plant

25 Spike

I'd heard of teddy bears and dogs of this name but when I found a boy called spike, it just didn't work.

Sounds boring and disgraceful

Yes ned boy

38 Melvin

Just say it out loud and then agree

41 Cashel

Andrew sounds normal, but you have taken it too far if you name your kid Cashel, it makes you sound like a greedy banker. I also hate Roger. Cashel is an AWFUL name! This takes the cake for me.
