Worst First Names For Girls

The Top Ten
1 Bob

Bob is terrible! I mean everyone just uses that name as a random example. And Bob for a girl? I mean, I'm not judging them, but that's a terrible name!

Here's a funny story about the name Bob.
Bob-Hi my name is Bob and I would like to apply for a job at the total girl museum.
Boss- Yep, just sign here.
Bob signs the form.
Boss- Hang on this says your name is Bob.
Boss-This is for girls only, remember?
Bob-I am a girl.
Boss-No your a boy just look at your name, Bob really?
I hope you have enjoyed this short story.

I don't really like this name, kind of drab, but all of the people who are named Bob take no offense. I used to love this website and now I hate it because I realized that it is racist and mean. My name is Mackenzie, and I love my name. I am really dissapointed. If you agree with me like this.

I don't think that names should be gendered but I abhor the name Bob. I don't care whether a kid is male or female, their parents must really hate them to call them 'Bob'. Bob doesn't sound like the name of a scientist or a successful musician, it sounds like the name of a soon-to-be janitor.

2 Helga

Helga might not be the best name, ok it's in fact one of the worst names made up so I can see how this company decided to put this name on 1st on the ''worst names for girls''. But I say to not judge people by their name. I mean their parents must of took a lot of time to decided what to name their daughter. So stop acting like this is Face-book because this website is the sort where you choose a name and type one positive thing so that people with that name will not hate their name if they see this site. I mean if someone had this name and saw this website seeing that people are making front of their name I bet that they will not be the happiest person you saw. What would you do if you saw your own name on this website and others are not apprieshiate your name?

This is the name of the main girl on the Nickelodeon show "Hey Arnold". Remember the girl with the blonde pigtails with a pink bow and a pink dress who kept pushing everyone around and every so often took out a picture of the titular character and professed her love for him? I always thought "Helga" was one of the worst names, and my empathy for the character of the same name has not made me like the name any more than I originally did. In fact, I think any girl with such an unfortunate name should shorten it to "Hells", unless she's Christian.

Really? Who in the right mind would EVER name their daughter HELGA? That name is just poop like really. I don't know ANYONE, who would ever name their daughter Helga. I think that that name is just poop and nobody in their right mind should EVER name their daughter HELGA!


Now this is a really ugly name. At least nobody said my name. But my kids, one of my girls name is Lexi, my work friend's names are Ashlynn and Bailee. And if I have another girl she will be called Mikayla. Now, Bob is a very bad name for a girl, as is Raven and Olga. But Helga is the worst.

3 Olga

Hi! My name is Olga. I have only 2 teeth. I have a big, hairy wart on my nose. I have grey disgusting hair. My hairstyle consists of 2 braids. I live with my stepmom, Bertha in the woods. She looks just like me. I go to pick wild berries and I feed the squirrels though they seem to run away from me for a reason. Whenever I look in the mirror, it cracks. (How Olga really looks like in my mind)

Geez, it's quite a popular name in Russia. The "l" sound is soft, and the pet version is Olya. One of the early rulers in Russian history bore this name and she was quite a lady, worth of ten GOTR characters (she avenged the death of her son by treacherously exterminating an entire town) It's an old name and it's kinda rough but I don't think it's ugly at all

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.

My Russian grandmother's sister has this name. She was a Miss Connecticut back in the 30's. I think it's a wonderful name. People think it's odd because it's not a typical name in English speaking countries.

4 Bertha

The person who cyber shamed that girl who typed this:Bertha is a amazing name. If I had this name I would take pride in it and just maby show it off. But this is only my opinion so you could have another thought about this name but I really would love it if you agree with me. And I guess I should tell you my own name is Bertha so stop cyber-bulling because I am only 11 years old so this is going to haunt me for the rest of my life, thanks a bunch!. But thank you so much for the 12 year old who stuck up for this name. And I agree with her you should all be ashamed of your selves. So remember Bertha is a wonderful name and don't forget it!." should apologize or I'm after them for an eternity until they are dead

Bertha sounds like the name of a fat and ugly girl that nobody likes. There's a character in the How to Train Your Dragon books that... Oh God I get the willies thinking of her. I know a girl in real life named Bertha and when I went to her sleepover her mom took us to McDonald's for dinner, to Burger King for breakfast, and to Checkers for lunch. She's fatter than Violet from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory when Violet turns into a blueberry and she's super ugly and she even named her own ZITS! She named one of them Bertha Jr. She named one of the other zits after the boy she had a crush on. Bertha is always the name of some nasty person. Who knows a popular girl named Bertha? NOBODY. Imagine a popular girl name Bertha.

Hot Guy: So who do you have a crush on?
Hot Dude: That cute girl, Bertha.
Hot Guy: Oh she's so pretty. What a flawless face!
Hot Dude: I know right!

That would be messed up. Nothing like the Bertha I know. Whoever would name their daughter ...more

Birtha? Bertha? No difference. Whoever said "Bertha is a amazing name. If I had this name I would take pride in it and just maby show it off. But this is only my opinion so you could have another thought about this name but I really would love it if you agree with me. And I guess I should tell you my own name is Bertha so stop cyber-bulling because I am only 11 years old so this is going to haunt me for the rest of my life, thanks a bunch!. But thank you so much for the 12 year old who stuck up for this name. And I agree with her you should all be ashamed of your selves. So remember Bertha is a wonderful name and don't forget it!." should be ashamed of her/himself! It is such an ugly name.

Bertha is a amazing name. If I had this name I would take pride in it and just maby show it off. But this is only my opinion so you could have another thought about this name but I really would love it if you agree with me. And I guess I should tell you my own name is Bertha so stop cyber-bulling because I am only 11 years old so this is going to haunt me for the rest of my life, thanks a bunch!. But thank you so much for the 12 year old who stuck up for this name. And I agree with her you should all be ashamed of your selves. So remember Bertha is a wonderful name and don't forget it!.

5 Schartzmugel

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.

I don't even know where to begin with this name. First of all, this name sounds like a mix between "Shart" "Mucus" and "Bugle", which are all pretty gross words as it is. Second, the poor person with this name couldn't even have a nickname for it! Like, would they call themselves Mugel or Schartz or something like that? This name is a total sin.

I had to laugh REALLY hard when I read this! I've never heard of it before. Imagine meeting someone called Schartzmugel.

Me: Hey, what's your name?
Girl: Hi, I'm Schartzmugel.
Me: Huh?
Girl: I'm Schartzmugel.
Me: Ahh okay?
Girl: What's wrong with it.
Me: That's a pretty... errr... unique name.

Wait is this a German name or something? I'm confused on how to pronounce it. It kinda looks German but how would I know.
But anyway the only reason I voted for this name was bcs I've never heard it before. No offense to whoever has this name though!

6 Nevaeh

I don't know what everyone's talking about saying about Nevaeh. I think it's a beautiful name, and I don't understand why people think it's so bad! When I first heard it I thought it was both pretty and creative. And I know some people think it's the "opposite of heaven" are thinking about it all wrong. How I think about it, it's kinda like a VARIATION of heaven. It makes since to name a Christian baby that (I know one) and I'm sure the parents of all Nevaehs out there did NOT intend on naming their child Hell. Seriously, people, grow up!

It sounds beautiful. I know, I know, it's the opposite of Heaven, but still. You know that show on Treehouse? Splash and Boots? If you don't, look it up. Anyway, they were playing the name game and Boots said, "I heard Neveah." So why would a name equal to Hell show up on a kid show? That proves it's a great name. Maybe the parents didn't know it was Heaven spelled backwards when they named their daughter this.

What the hell? I have a friend named nevaeh and I hope she will never see this list because it might hurt her feelings and she might be depressed afterwards. Imagine how you would feel if your name was on there. People at my school make fun of everyone's names regardless if its normal sounding. You all should be ashamed. I believe that all these names can be beautiful

I think the name Nevaeh is a good name seeing that if you say Nevaeh backwards it is spelt as heaven. PS I have a friend named Nevaeh who has seen this website and saw her name on the worst top names in the world and she is crying her eyes out! I feel really sorry for Nevaeh.

7 Boomquifa

This is not really a good name, I just don't like any name that has the word boom in it. The name doesn't really make any sense its like writing with my left hand. Sorry for all the boomquifas out there I was saying my opinion not insulting in case you're about to take offense

Some of these names are some what obnoxious...and on the the other hand some some are very unique in their own little way...so some of you all who are judging peoples names I think you should get something better to do!

I don't understand the hocus pocus opinions of this name. I personally think this name is flattering. I am 7 months pregnant and I am really considering to name my precious baby girl Boomquifa.

So if my friend had this name, here is what we would do

Me: Hey
Friend: Hi
Me: can you do me a favor
FFriend: Sure
Me: go do something amazing
So my friend gos do something amazing
Me: So know we are going to fist bump and say Boomquifa, ready?
Then we do it!

8 Peggy

OKAY PEOPLE! Enough with all the annoying bias comments. First of all, when you tell everyone that your name is the one you're commenting on, you're proving your opinion doesn't count because it is your name. The name Peggy is a fairly nice name... Abut everyone will have different opinions.

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!

Peggy lacks grace and femininity. It makes me think of Peggy from King of the Hill, someone with two "peg legs", or a waitress you meet in a diner on some god-forsaken exit of a desert interstate in the deep south.

Peggy is a wonderful name seeing that is my OWN NAME so I would stop tying up bad things about that name. Sorry that was kinda mean but I say Peggy is the best name in the universe! Considering it is my own name.

9 Time

I still remember that musical children's rhyme my grandma taught me...tick tock tick tock sweet little time it's not something you can by with a penny or a dime. Time is precious, by naming your child time indicates that you think that she is precious, just like Time. I just wish I had more time to spend with my grandma before she passed away. I'll pay anything for just extra mere seconds. Time isn't something you can buy, your child isn't something you can buy either. It is a precious name...

Wouldn't be so embarrassing if your name was Time and if somebody asked what the time was and you reply saying your age or date of birth or anything personal. But I guess that there are worst names such as Helga. I suppose the recommendation of this name though would be 2 out of 10 for my choice.

Okay, I know a couple of people who named their child after a word, thinking that it's pretty like Chemistry and Miracle (Miracle is NOT a pretty name by the way), but Time is just stupid. If you want to name your child something pretty, name them Robyn or Amethyst.

BACK OFF! This list is pretty mean, and if I found my name here I would send a complaint to the person who made this. Time should be spelt Thime like the herb. Mmm Thime smells like an awesome version of cinnamon, I would be happy to have this name.

10 Bobbi-Jean

You all should be ashamed of your selves Bobbi-Jean is a wonderful name. How would you feel if a bunch of people said that about your name?!?!.
By the way Bobbie-Jean is my own name and your saying that to a 11 year old girl not a good idea. This is going to haunt me for the rest of my life! Thanks a bunch.

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!

It sounds like ''Bob Jane T Marts'' what it a work shop? I know this is going to sound strange for a 11 year old girl saying this but Bobbi-Jean sounds like bobby! , if I had this name I would die of embarrassment the second I'm born for two reasons. 1- it's a boy's name and 2 it is two words, I mean is it Bobbi or is it Jean?

My grandmother's name is Bobbi and I think it's a beautiful name. If you don't like this name that's fine but my mom always says if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all.

The Contenders
11 Prudence

I love this name because it is not a comman name and it sounds like it came from the 20th centenary. You can make so many nicknames from this one name such as Pru and Prude. But I can't see how the owners of this website decided to put this wonderful name on 12th for worst names in the world. I would of put Prudence 1st on the best names in the world!

I honestly don't get why people hate this name. When I hear this name I don't think of plums or great aunts or anything like that. I think of a cheerful girl who is always optimistic (like how being "prudent" is being optimistic about the future) I think it could be as pretty as other popular virtue names like Grace and Faith

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 had a book about a girl who was learning to potty train when I was little.
The main character's name was Prudence.
I associate that name with pooping now.

12 Mckenzie

Excuse me? I do not have a problem with this. I don't like it when people take these things so seriously. This is all just a suggestion. If you don't like this website then just GO AWAY. Stop making all of this into such a big deal. This is such a shame that these words comes from a 9 year old. People, get a life. Seriously. You guys probably have better things to do than to go on here and complain. Just don't come on to this website at all. And if you think that Mckenzie or any name isn't bad or something then just GO. I'm tired of listening people complain about how their feelings are getting hurt. JUST LEAVE. It's not like someone would grant you a wish and cancel this website. SERIOUSLY. You guys are so pathetic. -.-

To: The person who called me a "basic-butt"
Excuse me? I know that you are helping to defend everyone here named "Mckenzie" but I would appreciate it if you would stop calling people with classic names a "basic-butt." That is bullying and there is nothing wrong with names like Emily or Chloe. I understand that you don't like beautiful and vintage names but that doesn't give you the right to bully someone with those names. Have your parents ever told you that if someone bullies you, you don't bully back? I understand that you like creative names but that is just your opinion. You can say that you like this name but you can't just criticize people with prototypical names.This isn't my job to teach you common sense, this is your parent's job and I'm only 9. So shameful...

kind of hate that it's this high , I think it's great that people read dork diaries but honestly? bashing on this name is super petty ! you have to realize those books are FICTION! ( people with the name McKenzie your name is great! and don't let people say anything otherwise! )

My name is Mackenzie and people should not base their opinion on personal experiences. Say if you were bit by a dog, does that mean that all dogs will bite you? Not all dogs are the same and the same goes for people. I personally love my name and know a few others with the same name, their personalities all very on the personality scale. It's the raising and experiences of the child that shape them. If your child is a brat then I am sorry but you raised them to be like that.

13 Shaniqua

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.

I'm a eleven year old (not the on that posted before) and I think that Shaniqua is a strange name considering that when I just typed it in, it came up with a red line under-neith it. But the good side of this name is that with this name you could play ''find the word'' seeing that it is a long name. But over all I can see how they could put this name on the top 50 worst names on the world, but I do not recommend this name to ANYBODY!

Please stop putting random names that you think are not pretty on the list. I like the name shaniqua it sounds exoctic to me in a beautiful way. To everyone who thinks their name sucks who cares if one insignificant person thinks its ugly? Its just a stupid list

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)

14 Alexis

Alexis is a beautiful name! It should so not be on this list like, my fourth name is Alexis and I get complimented like this:

Girl: what's your fourth name if you have one?

Me: Alexis

Girl:! That's a beautiful fourth name you got there!

However thinks Alexis is horrible you will be cursed, because my name is Alexis! I get compliments that Alexis is a beautiful name, how do you like that however thinks Alexis is a hideous name? huh how do you

This is the most beautifullest name ever and it happens to be my sisters name so back off! You should be ashamed! You obviously don't know what ugly is! Go look in the mirror

This is one of my best friends name and it is beautiful. Why do people think it's a bad name? I think it is amazing and I would choose it for my daughter.

15 Teeka

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!

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.

I know a tameeka, does that count?

Honestly, this sounds like the name of a very kind girl, one that has no problem making friends. I imagine someone with this name wouldn't let it get in their way, but sooner or later, they may come to not like it. the girl may not appreciate this name, but it really does sound like a modest name.

There was a little girl who's name was Teeks. She was kidnapped and her family hasn't seen her since. She was only four years old. She would be a young woman now. Teeka is a beautiful name.

16 Yazmine

To: The annoying bully.
SERIOUSLY!? This is the "annoying 11 year old child that you just couldn't stop complaining about. I bet that you have such a really bad name like Bertha or Olga. PS I know that this website is to post your personal comments, so I did, couldn't you see that!? I know that you are a bully, but that dose not mean that you can just rub it in to everybody. And you know how you said that I was complaining about everyone, well I just couldn't stop laughing because it is you that is complaining about everyone. So get your facts right and you get a life, I already have one.

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.

To everyone here getting welled up with the fighting: I know the person you're criticizing. She's my little cousin. I know because she told me about this. She was ten. TEN. Yes, she was even younger than 11. Chill people, I'm pretty sure you grown ups/teenagers have better things to do than all teaming up and beating this poor little kid up for just commenting against a post that she was annoyed at. Calm down and go for a walk.

This is an amazing name you are all disappointing. I love this name and so do others out there. You should be ashamed to have to be told by an 11 year old to stop making fun of little precious child's names. I like every name on this list and yet all you people do is make fun of amazing child's names. Bye!

17 Varaminta

Users who reads this name will experience nausea gas diarrhea drowsiness and the feeling to puke your instetines out!

You people are terrible for putting mean comments like that! So SHUT UP!
From the nine year old.

OK, when I just saw this name it made me think of vomit, is that normal, in other words does this name ''Varaminta'' make you think of vomit?

Just AT LEAST take away the Vara (whatever that means) and just keep it Minta perhaps.

18 Moon Unit

Moon Unit?
That's it, she's the new protagonist of my novel.
Also, I'm naming my daughter this.

Kidding. I'm pretty sure whoever posted this was a troll.

Moon I could get. Eeh, I could get Unit as a name. But not together maybe as a first and middle name like Moon Unit Landing (hehe I laugh at my own joke) WHO am I kidding! I love this name!

Horrible name.. A yes a real name. Frank Zappa named his daughter this she is known for her song Valley Girl... look it up!

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.

19 Aayan

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

20 Anous

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!

So..if someone was called Anous that would be weird. but on the first day of school even weirder,here is how a conversation would go like on the first day with your new teacher: "Hello children,today I would like to know your names! let us start with you pretty young lady with the peach bow,what is your name? " "oh me? my name is anous! " the children would laugh and wo ever calls their pretty child anous is obviously dirty minded and is festy for sex this isn't right.

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.

Disrespectful to the child, nobody's gonna take them seriously if they're named "Anous".

21 La-a

Here's a short story about the name La-a.
La-a- Well I'm off to go to singing practise.
Mum-OK, weird named daughter.
La-a arrives at singing practise.
La-a is standing right behind the door and she can hear ''LA LA LA LA LA ''
La-a- Why the heck is everyone singing my name?
La-a opens the door when she was expecting a party or something and then everyone starts to sing again. So she asks everyone to stop singing her name because she has arrived so the party is spoilted but it can still go on.
Music teacher- What are you talking about La-a?
La-a-the party you planned for me.
Music teacher-what makes you think that?
La-a- Well everyone was singing my name.
So La-a got kicked out of singing practise and was never to be seen again. The end.

If I had that name I wouldn't be worrying about being bullied, I would be worrying about how my parents decided to give me that name, I mean did my parents do singing practise or were they drunk when my Mum gave birth to me?

Why, parents, Why? If you have to give your child this name, at least change it to Ledasha. I mean no offense to anybody who has this name, this is just my personal opinion, so I'm really sorry if I insulted anybody.

I just don't know whether these parents were drunk or actually thought it was a cool name.. Because if they did... Poor kid..
How do you pronounce that anyway? La dash a?

22 Adair

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!

An old teacher of mine had this as her last name, its no worse than any other last name turned first name.

Two hours later, Adair's parents were arrested and thrown into juvi. Yes, juvenile detention, kids. Cause that's how that sounds.

Not everyone here is American you know. My parents are from Iran and I am from America but my name is still Persian

23 Grogda

What if you walked up to a really hot blond girl at the beach? "What is your name? " you asked.
"Grogda," the hottie replied. Would you turn right around and leave just because of her name? You probably would. Don't judge by names OR looks. I know a lot of people who date other people just because they look good. A girl named Grogda could be looking at all your rude comments right now, and she could be crying and hating herself. Stop the mean comments!

Not the best name to have ovacly. I mean you can find the word dog in this name and what other name can you find the word dog in it.

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

It's like what you'd name a green toad or a green witch. Anything green.

24 Sue

I think this name gets a bad rep because of two reasons.
One, it's pretty common and plain.
Two, a Mary Sue is a fictional character who is perfect. Like no flaws at all and a ton of superpowers. But that's just my opinion.

My friend's mother's name is Sue. Jeez. You guys don't have to call any name ugly. No name is ugly or bad. A parent could name their child whatever they want. So what if it's Peggy or Time or Bertha or La-a? So what? Those names are great names, and every name in this list. Also every name a child was ever called. The name Sue is awesome.

There is nothing wrong with this name. It is a very common name and I hate this site for doing this and criticizing people's names. You put other people Down! Considering I know 6 sue's, stop it! This is wrong and this name is quite fine... Lovely actually if I do say so myself. So HATERS BACK OFF!

This name sounds really sweet and innocent, I just don't like it. I wouldn't name my child this. It's flattering, but I don't want to name my children names that everybody has like Michael and Mary and Sue is too frequent of a name.

25 Danica

DaniKa is adorable! I don't like Danica as much. But it's not the worst - sausagea and fanny are much worse.

What's wrong with it
