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

Should be lost from existence.

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

What the?

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 Margret

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

Absolutely not.

Margreb is a crap name

8 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

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 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!

Excuse me?!

13 Gertrude

What even is this

14 Keira

Worst name ever sounds german

The name of a terrible British actress

It's my 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 Veruca

And forever shall be known as the wart child

Sounds like a plant's name.

Why its fungus

17 Archibal

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 Cuthbert

How about no?

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? )

19 Basil

Maybe his nickname would be Pesto!

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

I'm pretty sure this is a spice

It's a plant

20 Tred

Who would call someone this

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.

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

22 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


23 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.


24 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 😁
