‘Worst’ baby names of all time – and common mistakes parents make

An expert revealed common mistakes parents make when naming their kids.

Sherri Suzanne is paid £300 per session to help mums and dads find the perfect moniker.

But the guru, who runs the My Name for Life website, admits there are some names she steers clear of.

She told the Daily Star: “I caution parents that in an effort to make children stand out, they can also make it harder to fit in.

“Resist picking names that form jokes, puns, rhymes, or phrases that have strong negative associations…

“In an attempt to express individuality, it’s best not to create obscure and convoluted spellings.”

Sherri added: “I think the recipe for success starts with a name that can be said with confidence—such a name can be a time-honoured classic, a trendy Top 10 or completely unique.

“A name for success has pleasant sounds and is spelled logically to achieve correct pronunciation.”

The baby name expert isn’t the only one to warn of “bad” baby names.

Emma’s diary – a parenting expert site – shared their list of the worst baby girl and boy names.



Is your name on the list?

If you’re expecting perhaps consider the following a guide, though an odd guide at that. Tried and trusted names such as ‘Arthur’ and ‘John’, ‘Flora’ and ‘Karen’ are shown alongside the likes of ‘Hitler’ and ‘Nigel’.

Not included is Elon Musk and ex-partner Grimes’ attempt. A frankly bullying-inducing ‘X AE A-XII’

The site insisted the list of names was not a serious study, but just a bit of light-hearted fun

“This list is meant to be a bit of light-hearted fun and no offence is intended. If you love a certain name, then you should use it and forget about what anyone else may think,” they said.

You can view the list below. Which is your least favourite (it really should be Hitler, by the way)?

The worst names ever

The ones at school you heard were probably made up. It is unlikely that your mate’s, cousin’s long-lost friend was actually called ‘Chris P. Bacon’.

Chris did not feature on the same village football team as Wayne Kerr, either.

The Book of Unfortunate Baby Names is a publication by Russell Ash. He collected the most unfortunate baby names ever to occur.

Here are some of the best, for your amusement.

Dan D. Lyons – Born 1891, Cardiff, Wales

Don Key – Born 1885, Norfolk, England

Elle Vator – Born 1861, Sussex, England

Etta Lott – Born 1877, Mississippi, USA

Gladys Friday – Born 1900, England

Page Turner – Born 1865, Devon, England

Tess Tickle – Born 1893, Arkansas, USA
