Worst British Names

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

The Top Ten

1 Ian

Every Ian I met was the worst so

Ian my arse

Crap name and I'm called it

I agree terrible name

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 - EmilyEgberts

Just horrible - WinchesterGirl26

3 Angus

Sounds like a certain female part.

Sounds like beef

I've always hated this name... - Nejixchan

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

4 Rupert

It sounds stupid when u say it

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

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.

I think it's a really nice name!

Isn't this a girls name?

7 Abigail

Pretty cool name if I say so myself

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

9 Shep

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

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

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.

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

Ingrid, like Ingrid Newkirk the animal terrorist! Hahaa

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
