Worst baby names

by Kayleigh Dray |

It’s one of the most important gifts you can ever bestow upon your child, which is why so many parents spend such a long time dreaming up the perfect baby name for their newborn.

From flipping through baby name books, to looking to pop culture for inspiration, mums and dads search high and low for strong and meaningful monikers.

But there’s also the need to be unique.

After all, nobody wants their little one to share their name with five other kids in the class!

However it seems as if some parents take their quest for a unique baby name too far.

In a new Reddit thread, people were asked to share the worst baby names they have ever heard.

And they didn’t disappoint!

The 33 worst baby names of all time, as determined by Reddit users

1) Aliviyah

“Pronounced Olivia. This baby's parents fit every trap stereotype.”

2) Baby

“Yup. That’s the name.”

3) Mhavryck

“Pronounced as Maverick.”

4) Elizabreth

“… which easily becomes The Lizard Breath.”

5) Nevaeh

“It will always be the worst. Your going to [hell] for naming your kid that.”

6) Little Sweetmeat

“Swear to God.”

7) Danger

“I work in childcare. I could do this all damn day.”

8) Beberly

“Sounds like an accidental birth certificate spelling error.”

“They must have read The Three Musketeers.”

11) Panthy

“‘Nuff said.”

12) Jarica

13) Legend

“For real. That’s the baby’s name!”

14) Olive Garden

“Well, I have liked the name ‘Garden’ for a daughter, but my wife was really set on ‘Olive’ so we compromised and are naming her Olive Garden Smith."

15) Meldor

“One does not just walk into Meldor.”

16) Cameron

“Why is this a stupid name, you ask? His last name is also Cameron. He’s Cameron Cameron.”

17) Merika

“As in, America.”

18) C'andre (pronounced see-andre)

“The mother claimed ‘I wanted his name to start with a C because his fathers name began with a C’”

19) Reighleigh

“It’s Riley, but for a girl.”

20) Spartacus

“Imagine when they get to school, and the teacher takes attendance.”

21) Orlando

“For a girl. It was because of the Virginia Woolf book.”

22) Appaloosa

“Yes, for a girl. And yes, like the horse.”

23) Sassi

“Sassy, but with an i.”

24) Stormy Sea

“Don't do meth guys. It makes you do really stupid things.”

25) Abcde (pronounced ab-cee-dee)

There were a few names that we felt, in our hearts, should be exempt from the list.

However there’s no denying that the likes of Melanoma and Keeler will go down in history as some truly awful monikers.
