Top 10 Worst Names of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Gaylord

This name was created way before the word "Gay" was changed to mean homosexual. It meant something along the lines of "Happy" so this name would actually suit some people before the 20th century.

This makes me think of a male gymnast from the 1984 Olympics named Mitch Gaylord. I would bet my savings during his youth and adolescence, when people say his full name they would change the “M” in Mitch to a “B”. Poor guy...

This is so funny, if I was called Gaylord, I would not like it, I would do something to myself, like stab my self, or scratch my skin off with a needle. Because it is a very stupid name to call someone. And it could be offensive to some boys. One day this kid called Gaylord was kicked out out of school because of this.

This name sucks. I hope what ever kid gets this likes his name. who name's their child this?! I mean it's setting them up for failure. I mean if your names "gaylord" you're gonna get bullied. I mean it literally means "lord of the gays"

2 Dick

I know most people know this. But there's a store called Dick's. And if your name is Dick... You DO NOT name a store after yourself. I'm sorry for all you Dicks out there-- wow, that sounds so wrong.

Who the HECK thought of a name like this?! I hate cursing and I hate this name and the word. It means something really nasty and I pray for the people named this O Lord!

Dick is short for Richard. Pretty much mom and dad would be better off naming their child the latter, because immature people are increasing in numbers.

Obviously you shouldn't name your child this... This would be very odd if this was a girl name don't you think?

3 Adolf

Why isn’t this name above Gaylord? Gays are usually perfectly harmless, but Adolf is the name of the world’s most evil person of all time, who was responsible for the killing of so many Jews. People would laugh at you for being called Gaylord, but would throw things at you for being called Adolf.

Forget about Hitler. Think about Adidas, which was founded by Adolf Dassler! He called himself "Adi". You get it? You have Adi, his nickname, and then you have Das, which is part of his last name. Combine them and you get Adidas, a shoe name that we all know and love! No Adolf, no Adidas!

Had a kid in my school named Adolf. Was about 0.1% of Hitler's evil (Since Hitler was SO evil) but he was a jerk to me.

Can't believe no one thought of this, because I wouldn't want this name.

4 Version 2.0

I think their parents are lifeless scientists that spend too much time with their electronics to the point that they care more about their electronics than their kids and don't know how to raise a real kid, so they name their kid a computer name to make it easier on themselves.

I'm sorry but are people on the top 10's this retarded? I thought it was bad enough to have Justin beiber on almost every list but version 2.0? no one names there kid that

WOW LOL Who would give a kid a name like that? Oh, I'd like you to meet my son Version 2.0 and my wife Verizon.

"Hey, Mr. Computer how do I turn on your cousin Version 2.0 he doesn't like me... I keep trying to turn him on by pressing the 'on' button but he keeps turning off! Please help me! "

5 Porky

Who in the world would name there son/daughter PORKY r u serous right now! I just think it is the stupidest name ever! I don't like it at all

Porky pig. Loony Toons. I love that show, even though it came on maybe 60 or 70 years before I was born.

Okay all I got to say is pork tastes bad.. I used to love but now no way. Porky is the worst name ever!

Like that boy/ girl is fatter than a pig. And got a sibling named beefy, maybe a father named fishy.

6 Pubert

No offense to anyone with this name, but do parents actually name their children this? You know if you want to call them Bert you could always name them Bertrand or Hubert; but really, Pubert?!

Pubert sounds like Hubert. laugh out loud. Puberty, like that other guy said. I don't mean to be mean (weird repeat of words), in fact, my name (classified due to privacy. you Mad? ) is made fun of too in another list by a very un-funny idiot.

You know those cute little nicknames that evolve from your real name, like Owie from Owen, or something. His would be Puberty. Ha Ha. " Oh, Puberty! Come here, I want you right here. " Ha Ha ha ha!

Pubert! Sounds like hey, heres my wife, Pimple, I'm sweaty, and that's baby puberty!

7 Moon Unit

It sounds like a robot name, or some sort of name for a rocket that is supposed to land on the moon. "Moon Unit! Time for dinner data! " Says mom. "Coming mom unit! "

Yeah... this is a name. From the ever creative mind of Frank Zappa.

Moon is a good name moon unit is a name from a heartless sick parent

Wow, I wonder how lance Armstrong felt when he was called nerd?!?! /1/!?!?

8 Caca

that is the worst first of all in some languges it means poop but if in romainan it means crap so you are still in trouble now in swedish it means cookie whitch means cookie What innernet cookies suck if you name is this I feel really bad because you will be bullied for the rest of you school year and getting cyberbullied for the rest of you lifetime unless you change it

Caca means crap in Romanian and it's a very ugly word. From the other comments, I learned it doesn't only mean that in Romanian. There were some poor villages in Romania called Cacova meaning crappy, but the Communists changed their names. You can say whatever you want about Communists, but I think they did a good thing for these villagers.

A Brazilian Stock Car driver called Caca Bueno finished 3rd in the recent season. His name means "poop good" or "poop well". That's a horrible name to have. Imagine him going on to the podium and the announcer saying, "Give it up for our race winner, Poop Well! " That is so embarrassing. by the way, bueno means good in Spanish.

Caca means poo is Spanish... yeah who calls their kid that
"I'm going to call them caca! "
"caca doesn't that mean poo in Spanish? "
"exactly! "

9 Alexis

Alexis is horrible because it's basically Alex modified. It's Alex by adding an "is" to it, which makes " Alex is"
It also sort of disrespects me cause my name is Alex. Also it disrespects all Alex's, including the guy who destroyed the Persian empire.

How is Alexis a bad name? Really give me one good reason... that's right there is no good reason. There is a girl who name is alexis and she is so sweet. that's really mean!

My little sister is the cutest thing in the world; she just got out of the hospital and her name is Alexis. I call her lex Lexi and I love her

He dated a girl named Alexis. She broke his fragile little heart, what a shame. Now all the Alexis' in the world are to blame. D:

10 Olga

My name is Olga. I lived in London, so when I was younger people in my class didn't see anything wrong with it. But after 1 year there was this new kid in my class and he noticed that my name sounds just like the word oger(one of those green monster eg Shrek). Then I got bullied and everyone called me Oger, Shrek, green blob( I was quite chubby) or monster. Then I moved back to Poland, were I originally came from, and I got lots of compliments on my name

I had an English teacher named Olga, she was a terrible teacher, she pronounced island "is-land" and she scolded me in front of the whole class when I pointed out her mistake.

There is someone in my school named Olga. I like the name Olga, however, some students think it is weird. They were making puns of her name and called her an ogre, and they also made a pun saying "Olga, New-ga"

Olga sounds aggressive, if I had someone walk up to me in school and say, hi, my name is Olga, I'm new here, then I'd do my best to just stay away from her, just to be sure!

The Contenders
11 Gavyn

I hope you know that gods mum (yes I said mum) named him Satan but she also named God so are they both horrible names to you or is God a good name to you?

Really? This is what happens when ghetto people try to make up names, which they think are so cool, for their kids.

I'm pretty sure the name originated from people trying to make fun of boys named Gavin.

I think this is an accidentally bad pronunciation of Gavin.

12 Swquirty

Just why would anyone even think of naming their poor child Swquirty?

If you name your child this I have one question for you: is your child a fish?!

Must be pronounced Squirty. Poor kid must get bullied by all the perverted kids.

It's sounds like what your girl would call you while you two are bangin

13 Ian

The worst nickname of all time (in my world) is Baby Ian, when you look at the words, it’s not so bad, but when you are like having a super bad day and your temper is rising, your mortal enemy calls you a baby... >=( but with the name Ian is just so much worse... I pity the Ian s in the universe...

That sounds like a show in Netflix that is so weak he could not lift that is half a pound

Ian is the worst name in the world because a guy from my school name is Ian and he is so gay

Come on, ian isn't that bad, apart from the name looking weird

14 Opal

Someone should have three girls. The shortest should be amethyst. The second tallest one with a big nose is pearl. The third one that is the tallest should be opal.

Actually, Opal is a gemstone. I wouldn't name my child Opal though, it doesn't really have a nice ring to it. But it does look good written down. :P

In 4th grade we had to read because of winn-dixie and the main characters middle name is Opal but I always called her by her first name India.

India Opal Buloni (am the only one here who read Because Of Winn-Dixie? If I am all of you go to kindle and read this sad/sweet book! )

15 Alica

At least it isn't ghetto. This is a pretty decent name. It sounds nice when you say it, and it fits pretty much every girl. I don't know why this is on the list. If anything should be on the list, it should be Shameeka. (A terrible name for a girl.)

My school had a Spanish exchange student called Alicia and she is one of the funnies and nicest person I know from Spain! So I think Alicia is a great name not a bad one.

I see nothing wrong with this name other than the fact that pronunciation is a bit troublesome without a little help.

Alica not Alicia. You say it a-lick-a. It's not a bad name but I'd rather be called Alicia

16 Fluffy

Reminds me of a furry cat or dog. Hey Fluffy want to fight? Might sound like your to soft and going to lose. Is he or she actually furry?

This name is so bad, that George from the "Captain Underpants" was forced to change his first name to Fluffy.

Seriously? Just sad. "Hey Fluffy, come here." "You got a new dog? " "No, I'm talking to my kid."

This is a stupid name to name a kid, name your pet rabbit this, because it's so bad.

17 Eugene

"Eugene Krabs! You need to stop sniffing your money and start managing the Krusty Krab! " I don't mean to be offensive, it was just too tempting.

It sounds like that kid in school with the dorky glasses and freckles.

When I think about this name, it's like "Eugene Krabs! ".

Careful with that axe, Eugene

18 Le-a

This name is actually pronounced "Le-dash-a". You pronounce the dash. If you don't believe me, look it up. Stupidest name ever.

When there is a dash in the middle of a name, you know it is going to be hard to pronounce.

Did they like accidentally make a pencil mark when filling out the birth certificate?

Comment below me it has the dash your cousin is Lea with no dash not Le-dash-a

19 Cerlia

Is it like Sir-relia or Kirlia?

Celia is fine but CERLIA? No.

Sounds like Cereal

Pokemon anyone

20 Sextina

WHY? SERIOUSLY! WHY? WHO DOES THIS? Her parents must have a very sick humor and with there daughter purposely offend everyone who meets her.

This woman better watch out because there are a lot of perverts out there who love these type of names!

Parents: We should boost our child's probability of becoming a hooker!
Friend: How?
Parents: By naming her Sextina!

Sextina? Please tell me it is not pronounced sex-Tina. If it, I don't even know...

21 Cody

I actually quite like this name it's really cool! It shouldn't be on this list!

This is from Warrior Cats you know... see the second series.

It just sounds really weird to me... I don't know

I actually like this name. And Alexis

22 Melfrid

It sounds like one of those anti-social names.

God gave me a good name what happened to you

You just made your kid a butler

it sounds like the wicked witch's granny.

23 Gertrude

Boss: Gertrude! Go fix the regurgitating toilet on the 2nd floor, please!
Gertrude: Yeth ma'am.
( Tries to fix toilet)
Gertrude: But I can't Toi-toi and I are in love!

I call my friend gertrude and she cannot stop laughing when I do

I was almost named this. Good thing I got Grace.

Remember that ugly bird named Gertrude from Because of Winn-Dixie

24 John

Why is my name on here? Why is it bad? At least it's not ridiculous like Gaylord or Shaniqua

But he is the cool guy in my school

My dads name is john

It means toilet

25 Bartholomew

Barry Allen thank you very much... his full name is Bartholomew Henry Allen

Same like my comment on John. Bartholomew is one of Jesus apostles

This is Bart Simpsons real name from the show the simpsons

What?!?! Bartholomew and Olga should marry each other and have kids named "Bartholga and Olgmew"
