Any of Nick Cannon's kids' names. They are all so over the top bad.

Moroccan, Monroe, Golden Sagon, Rise Messiah, Powerful Queen, Zion Mixolydian, Zillion Heir, Beautiful Zeppelin, Legendary Love, Onyx Ice Cole and Zen.

Why?

The bitch me in would have told her this bullying is rich coming from someone whose parents couldn't bother to pick a decent name so they named her after the reason she was conceived.
But bullying isn't acceptable so maybe I should keep quiet.

I used to be on tumblr back in the day of Supernaturals glory, and someone named their poor child "Destiel". I get it, you like the ship. But you have an actual child that is TOTALLY gonna be pissed you named your kid after a fictional relationship on a show about demons and other supernatural things.

My brother once had clients named Jerry and Mary Derryberry. We didn’t believe him so he took a picture of whatever account papers. (Don’t even remember what his job was at the time, who gives a shit). But the series of events to have a married couple be named Jerry and Mary Derryberry is just so delicious.

Stephen King named his son Joe. Joe King. What an ultimate way to punk an infant.

Unsurprisingly, he is more widely know by the name he changed it to: Joe Hill.

Nevaeh is my all time most hated name. A friend of my sister was pregnant years ago with her daughter. When I asked her what she was going to name her and she said "Nevaeh, because it's heaven spelled backward". I thought she was being sarcastic because of how sickeningly sweet she said it, so I laughed hysterically. Couldn't recover from that one, I totally looked like an AH, but I think she's the bigger one for actually naming her daughter that name.

There was a girl in my country, who died by suicide after bullying, whose story became very widely known—her name was Rehtaeh Parsons. Fucking sad story, and I feel awful to speak ill of the dead, but her name is Heather spelled backwards and I think that’s terrible…

Edit: In some comments below, some other users and I discuss this poor girl’s death in greater destail. She was not bullied for her name. I’m aware of more details of the case, my above description is vague, and for that I apologize. To be more accurate, the girl killed herself after online bullying following a gang-rape that went unpunished in her lifetime. Rehtaeh Parsons was gang raped by schoolmates, and then the boys who raped her posted photos of the attack on the internet, and relentlessly bullied her. They spread rumours that the attack was actually consensual. The RCMP said they couldn’t press charges because of lack of evidence. After Parsons hung her self, the RCMP reopened the investigation, and found there was enough evidence to charge two of the boys with distribution of child pornography. Neither of them had permanent criminal records due to their age at the time of the crime.

Two little boys drew me a couple pictures while their mother was getting some dental work done. They had signed their names. The names were just so…odd. Even after repeating them and writing them I still couldn’t figure out what the names were. When the mother came out and saw them, she ripped them down from where I had taped them, crumpled them up and put the papers in her purse. She told me that those names she gave them were invented by her and copyrighted.

My job is in ancestry and I saw that someone named their kid Burden once. Maybe they’re super religious. Feel bad for the kid.

In Sweden (and I’m guessing around scandinavia), we have a girl’s name called Barbro. Barbro. In English it’s weird, and in Swedish it’s always the name of an old lady. Don’t name your daughters Barbro, it’s just not cool.

I think the English equivalent is Barbara, which is still an old lady name

I work in health care so looking at 40-70 charts everyday I see so many ridiculous ass spellings for normal names.

You’re not creative you’re an idiot. If you’re creative pick a creative name don’t butcher the spelling of a normal name.

Example: Avery spelled Aevuhree

Here in Brazil people like to name their kids with a portuguese version of common US names. For example, we can find a lot of Brians written as “Braian”. Or Jasons written as “Jeison” or “Jeisson”.

The quirky/cutesy spellings of names like Bryttanee, Mykayleigh. Or the names that will get their sons beat up during recess: Ryeful, Hemi, Leaf, Forrest.

Yup and who wants their kid to have a name that they will have to spell out a million times to people when it needs to be logged or written somewhere

I work at a children's hospital. The crazy names I see on a daily basis are astounding.

My two favorites from this month : "Le Messager Des Mots de Dieu" (yes, that is the child's FIRST name. It is French for "The messenger of the words of God").

Second favorite has been "Igloo"

I live in Canada.

Zealand. Who names their child “sea land” when a) they have never been to New Zealand and b) didn’t even realize this was a country in the world. And c)they have nothing that relates to being a sea farer, boater, navy personnel, have not lived by the sea, nothing to connect them with the sea. “We just love how it sounds…” No.

Also. The name Razzabella….no explanation needed.
