Worst First Names For Girls

The Top Ten

1 Bob

It is child abuse to name a girl that! - moose4life19

Bob? Isn't that a boy name
Bob the builder can we fix it?
Bob the builder
No we can't! Woot woot

That's a boy's name! Why would someone name a girl that!? =( - KatieChan

Cute poignant is a bad girl name

2 Helga

Just listen to it. Would you want to go out with a girl with this name?

The name Helga may not be the best but the quality of the woman should determine weather or not you want to date her or not. A girl with the name Helga could be the most wonderful person in the world and by your logic you would dismiss her based on her name.

It makes my throat hurt saying this name.. Helga. Not working out!

From Hey Arnold! - Luckys

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.

3 Olga

Sounds too much like "old guy" or Ol' ga or something

Means "beautiful" in Russian. Very popular name there.

Sounds like Ogrem - Luckys

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.

4 Bertha

All I can think of when I hear this name is "Look out, Big Bertha's coming through! "

Sounds like a baby is coming out!

That is like big Bertha but I like the name a lot

When I hear Bertha, I think "Big Bertha's comin'! " I can't stop laughing.

5 Schartzmugel

Yeah, so if you have a job interview, here's how it would go:
"Hi, my name is Schartzmugel Johnson, I'd like to apply for a job, Mr.H. "
"Wait... Schartzmugel? "


A girl in new york has this name its like holy guacomole!

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.

6 Boomquifa

Um, please don't play with me

No Way.. A parent that gives an innocent child that name should go to jail.

This cracked me up

My dads name is boomquifa

7 Nevaeh

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.

It's a pretty name. - Luckys

I like this name but I realized it's the opposite of heaven. And I know someone named this and she went through child abuse... Yeah but I think the name is pretty.

When I hear this name, I think "tacky" and "ghetto. " It's not creative. It's not pretty. It's bad. Just bad.

8 Peggy

Excuse me! My mom's name is Peggy and I think that it is a WONDERFUL name!

It's a good name for a pet such as a pig or horse. Not the best name for a person though.

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!

Angelica! Eliza! PEGGY!

9 Time

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!

This name is unique but not the name I would go with...

Hey time, what's the time?

REALLY? It is awesome!

10 Bobbi-Jean

It reminds me of the Michael Jackson song Billie jean.

Bobbi jean come on really

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!

"Bobbi-jean is not my lover", by common sense I doubt any normal parent would give their kid such a name. - AngelaB

The Contenders

11 Anous

This name is nasty. Looks like Anus.

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.

! WHY IN THE HECK WOULD YOU CALL YOUR CHILD ANOUS?!?!? It sounds more like Anus! Your child is a human not a part inside of your body!

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!

12 Mckenzie

Yes I like the name I have no problem with the name because I know a lot of people with the name

Really mckenzie isn't a bad name. really people shouldn't blame people for how they were named. I have a bff named mackenzie and she is nicest person ever to me. its not fair. you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. I'm ashamed of evreyone who thinks these names are ugly when there are a lot of people out there who are named these things and you guys are just making fun of them. this is sad because this is coming from an 11 year old. there are ADULTS on this who are making fun of innocent child names. get a life because I bet you need somehing better to do with your life than make fun of someones name. I have an embarrassing last name but I have lots of friends and they don't care what my last name is. and if you havea problem with this post then come say it to everyones faces whos names are these.

It's my sister's name

Most of these are hillbilly names

13 Prudence

It sounds like someones ancient great aunt

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 love this name - blackflower

A girl in a book was named Prudence Charity King. - Flowerfriend4407

14 Shaniqua

My uncle was diagnosed with Shaniqua years ago. When it flares up, I won't even go in his house without a pair of sanitary gloves.

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.

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)

Honestly, no offense to you "wise" 11 year old girls, but please keep your comments to yourself. I know you can express your opinion if you want, but other people can too. - Kayci

First of all I'm 10 not 11! And I think this is a lovely name. If you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all! - Flowerfriend4407

This is a beautiful name! Way better than most names on this list!

16 Yuu

All I can hear is "NOW WATCH ME YOU"

Yuu is a Japanese name, I think it's cute.

This is a unique name. So what if it is a little strange, you should not even have a bad name list because there are people in this world with this name and how do you think they feel?

This is a Japanese name. It has a lot of meanings such as "friend", "tenderness", or "courage".

You? , I thought we were talking about me.

17 Teeka

Sounds like a curry!

Teeka, what the heck, I have never ever ever ever heard of this name, ever this name is so stupid

Honestly my opinion on any name is that people shouldn't judge others by their names because their parents must of took a long time to decide what to name their child even if it does sound strange. Imagine if you had a name like this and everyday you got bullied and you can't change it because you can't change your name so you might as well decide to live with it.

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!

18 Yazmine

For goodness sakes just call her jazmine

I love this name! If I have a daughter I'm naming her yazmine! Its sounds so sweet!

This is not a bad name! I have a friend named Yasmin!

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.

19 Varaminta

User may experience nausea, gas, diarrhea and or drowsiness

Sounds like something you'd name a MY LITTLE PONY CHARACTER! Not your bundle of joy! - AngelaB

I like it because it kind of sounds tropical. It can also be shortened to Minty

I like Minty, it's my cat's name. So if my cat is Minty, how do you think the child will be taunted about it? - Swiftdawn

Kinda sounds like verify my mints

20 Aayan

I love this name it is wonderful

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

21 La-a

Once my Mum and I were in the car and we drove past a car with the number plate saying LA-A, and I told my Mum that the car we just drove past had my name on it, and guess what she said back to me... She said, well I knew that this day will come but we chose a stupid name for you to be stupid enough to be on a number plate. Now I wish that my name is something different, I mean something like Bob or Maggie would be a lot better, that is how bad my name really is!

It's pronounced La-dash-uh. Ladasha sometimes gets registered wrong in documents, because the computer thinks you want a 'dash' there.

Looks like someone watched Tre melvins video '9 month hoe'

I read this ou loud and prounonced it like Lah-ah

22 Moon Unit

I will pray for every soul named Moon Unit

I really don't see the problem with this name. I named my daughter this and she seems to be very popular.

I hate it its despicable name to name someone is the parent trying to bully them their innocent babies

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.

23 Adair

I love this name! - AliciaMae

That was my MALE teachers last name

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!

Seriously? It's the cheesy HG fans name for their poor daughters after Finnick Odair in the 3rd book dies! Way to go, darlin'!

It sounds like a name s troll would have!

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

25 Peyton

The only Peyton's I know are Peyton from Jessie and the wrestler Peyton Royce.

Hay I love the name Peyton and a am a girl and my name is Peyton but I now that every one has there own opinion

I agree peyton does not sound like a name, ashley, tony and mary do but not peyton. The only peyton I've ever heard of was peyton list from Disney channels Jesse. Granted I hate the name jesse or jessica.

I have a friend named Payton (a variation of this name) and she is very nice and artistic. She doesn't get bullied, but every once in a while she does get teased, but only because of Peyton Manning, the ex-football player. I think that it is a fine name.

Sue... Isn't really a good name. And reminds me a lot on Mary Sue. :/ I know it isn't the names fault, but still.
And you know, suing someone... No thanks, I rather give some other name to a girl.

It's an okay name. It's common, but cute. - Flowerfriend4407

29 Shania

I have an Aunt called Shazia and it's pretty similar. Seriously? Why is there only two posts? As far as I know Shania is a beautiful girl name and deserves a bit more of admiration or awe. I think that many people only dislike this name because its uncommon and not used very often, but gorgeous all the same.

Everyone girls, Remember Shania Twain, women around the world where Beyonce walked in? - ArigatoKawaii

32 Surtiyem

Leave that name in the 15th century right next to wiping your butt with your hand.

I never heard that name before. But it does make you sound as you were crazy, low-headed and dumb. A parent giving their child this name should go straight to prison. It sounds like the word sodium, what is she a scientist?

You shouldn't even be allowed to name your child this - AngelaB

Well it is a fine name and people say things like "anyone who names an innocent baby this should be in jail". Parents spent months picking the perfect name for their child so anyone who insults them is the one that should actually go to jail

33 Jennica

To people whose names are on this list:
Many of these names were put on here because they think that they are weird. some people think that's a bad thing but really its not. I'm sorry you found your name on this list. Most of these names are spinoffs of other beautiful names. Your parents probably names you this because they knew you would be beautiful yet original. Please stop taking offense, because it's not the name that counts.
I am writing a book called What's Behind Niagara Falls with my best friend Allison, and I plan on using some of these names as silly names in my book because what's the point of the originals, like mary, john, and bob? Nothing, that's what. This list includes very interesting names. This list goes to show that names don't matter, as long as you have an interesting personality.
Thank you for your time.

This was one of my old friends names. I think it was spelled different though, but I like the name..

I personally think this is a very nice name! What's wrong with it!?!

I really hate the people on this website who put my name on here you put my whole family on this list I came first out of all and I have 18 people in my family

Bathsheba is a good name but Bathsheba in The Bible was a harlot so she technically wasn't a good person, but the person she was has nothing to do with name.

38 Heather

Someone already mentioned that Heather is the name of the definitive "mean girl" from the Total Drama series. I don't think that's a problem. The problem is that Heather seems to be a name that is used for a LOT of fictional mean girls and queen bees. Like the young adult "Sammy Keyes" series has a girl called Heather who is actually the protagonist's middle-school arch nemesis. She redeems herself by the end of the series, but up until book 16, all her friends thought she was pure evil - plus her brother was dating Sammy, which didn't help her any less - turned out she picked on Sammy because she was jealous of her relaxed confident attitude.
There's other fictional mean girls named Heather that I can't call to mind right now. It's annoying, because I actually think it's a beautiful name. Coming back to the Total Drama Heather, no one should be ashamed of being compared to her, as being mean is actually NOT her defining characteristic any more. She is more defined as one of the ...more

This is actually my favorite name for a girl... I love it, it's a pretty name.

COMMENT TO ALL NAMES ON THE LIST AND PEOPLE POSTING THEM. I don't think they are bad names. Its just what YOU think and imagine the feelings the people with those names... - Roxann

44 Mac

My laptop is a mac

To the 11 year old: ugly name

Okay, to the eleven year old, your argument is completely invalid. You destroy the idea of ever wanting to make fun of a name, then agree that some of the names are bad too. You are part of the army of eleven year old girls who put down wanting to think a name is stupid, but maybe you're just running around commenting on them all. Also, we feel bad for the people who possess these names, there's nothing wrong with them, just that the pair of humans who spawned are complete and utter morons.

I'm 10, not 11, and I think the 11 year old is smart and nice! Anyway, you're extremely rude. - Flowerfriend4407

Excuse moi? My nickname is Mac and I don't see a problem with it. Frankly, I'm eleven years old and half of the names on this list I see are people in my school names. It is rude and insulting to the communities and others when you heartlessly pick out names that you don't like personally. And some of them are bad, I have to admit, but some of them are beautiful Spanish, Latin, and African American names. I am more mature than the people who made this article, and again, I AM ELEVEN! It is so so sad for me to see what pathetic adults do for a living. Judge people by their names? Really? That's what free countries do. Great. Maybe the next time all you people who say the names are horrible, take a Longwood look in the mirror and ask yourself "WWJD? " And "How would I feel if that was my name."

Destiny is a beautiful name and guess who's name is destiny? That's right mine!

I guess it's not as bad as some of the "ugly" names. But, Destiny is a silly, annoying name. I just feel the mother is thinking "My baby's gonna be a hero", but that's a 1/1000000000 chance...
