Top 10 Worst Names of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Gaylord

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 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 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.

I remember having a crocodile toy which I named Gaylor the Gator because it seemed like a good name back then.

Back then, I also wondered why everyone laughed when they heard me say "play with Gaylord".

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.

I don't know why this is a nickname for Richard, because why would you want to be called this? It means... something absolutely disgusting.

3 Adolf

Why is this on here? Look I know that there was some guy named Adolf Hitler horrible terrible man disgrace to society. But that does not mean the name itself is bad. Adolf Hitler is often compared to Joseph Stalin in evilness, but the name Joseph is very common and I do not see it on this list.

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.

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

"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! "

Oh my God please don't name your child this I mean your child's not gonna be a robot for goodness sake!

5 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!

6 Porky

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.

Th-th-th-that's all, folks! Or am I in Mother 3? Ya know, screw it...it's a weird name.

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.

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

That is pretty stupid

8 Caca

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! "

Caca sounds like coco but there parents were smoking lovers!

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

WHAAT! Alexis! This is a great name. Which is why I vote it OFF the list. This name is so unique that it should be on top ten unique names. Not WORST!

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.

It's a common name in Slavic countries, cognate to Helga. In Russian it is pronounced with a soft L, a sound which is absent from English, and does not sound harsh. Nothing wrong with it in my opinion.

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 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...

I know why is it here.
I
Am
Nothing
That's the meaning of Ian
But how's that be a bad name? Huh, We are all nothing,guys. I think this list is too offensive.

This name is pretty boring..

I think its fine

13 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.

This name is a nerd name I mean it doesn't even symbolize anything.

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! )

14 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.

Random person "hey want to see Fluffy"
Other person "oh is that your cat"
"What no"
"Pet bunny? "
"No! "
"Then who is Fluffy? "
"Fluffy is my Aunts name"
"...rlly? "
"Yes she's nice"
"Hahaaa"
"I will destroy you"

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

15 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! ".

Like 'Poo-Jean'
Poop in your jeans.
"Ew, Eugene, did you just poop your pants UGH god"

16 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?

Sounds like some manly Russia woman from the Middle Ages.

17 Sextina

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

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

Someone HAD to be abusing this kid come on this name isn't normal it's like she's a s.e.x slave for her evil stepdad!

I had sex with Sextina I took off all her clothes and shoved my dick up her ass.

18 Gertrude

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

Any name with "rude" in it is not a good idea.

I like this name, I'm reading a book at my school library called Margaret and the moth tree and in it there is a person called gertrude

Who names their child that?!

19 Cody

Sorry I voted so I could say that this is a cool name! My friend's name is Cody and he is so sweet! Gertrude is unfortunate tho

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

20 John

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

What's wrong with the name?

My dads name is john

It means toilet

21 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

Sounds like you're throwing up.

Bart Simpson real name

22 Erwin

I think some one has been watching too much Attack On Titan and for some reason really hates the Survey Corps. They are obviasly sick in the head.

Reminds me of a bug disguised as a leaf for some reason.

It sounds like a little kid trying to say "Erin".

Erwin Smith! I think this is a great name!

23 Austin

Most cities and places are named for or after a person. In this case, the person who founded Austin Texas must be named Austin or something like that.

I have a friend named Austin but everyone calls her Grace for some reason.

I know a city and a kid named Austin. I like this name. My name is John though.

Its ridicules when parents name their children after cities.

24 Boris

It's a Bulgarian/Romanian name. To foreigners it might sound weird, but to those where it's used, it's normal.

When Trump has a better haircut than the most famous person with your child's name you should give up.

Boris is Boring! That's the first thing I thought of, so people may want to steer clear from this one.

This is the name you should give a dog. Seriously! My dog's name is Boris!

25 Felicia

Um this is actually my name... To be honest I think its kinda boss because Alicia was just too mainstream :P
