Blame Hollywood A-listers or ingenuine parents willing to go far to make their kids stand out from the crowd, but unique baby names are getting more and more popular. Usually they are driven by a focus on individuality, with naming conventions thrown out of the window.

The result is Alchemy, Tansy, Kobe or Roch. Or Charmayanne and Antwohnette. What about Sincere and Precise? Yes, these are all baby names, for better or sometimes… worse.

So today we take a look at a couple of Reddit threads (this and this) where people share the most annoying baby names they have heard. Some sound somewhat strange, while others, they claim, they cannot stand at all. Let us know what’s your least favorite baby name in the comments!

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid I was told when naming my daughter to say the following sentences out loud:
1) Please stand for the President of the United States, [insert name].
2) Gentlemen, dancing tonight on the main pole here at The Bunny Club, [insert name].

If #2 flows better. .pick another name.

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid Before my nephew was born, my sister sent me a text asking if I liked the name "Rylar". I sent her a list of questions to ask herself, and if she answered yes to any of them then Rylar would be a fantastic name for her child. The questions were:

1) Is he destined to be a lion tamer and/or magician?
2) Will he not have a last name, like Seal or Prince?
3) Is he going to have an ominous title like "The Terrible" after his name?
4) Is he a character in an RPG?

She named him Lucas.

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid I worked at a summer camp and this family had 5 kids and 1 on the way but the 3 at my camp were named Integrity, Honesty and Rage. Ironically Rage was the sweet one. But we would always joke about what they would name the next kid. I liked the name Punctual.

They can't come up with an original name so they screw up the spelling to make it 'special'.

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid There is no such thing as a baby name; the name you give your baby is also going to be their adult professional name. Some parents forget to name their child accordingly.

But to answer your question, I dislike most names that involve some kind of universal virtue. Joy and Hope are acceptable, but Love is pushing it.

Imparting names with significance regarding the character and traits you hope you child will grow into as they get older is a tradition in many cultures that goes back thousands of years. Truth, Wisdom, Temperance, Courage, Noble, Justice, Charity, Constance, Patience, Verity... This is not some stupid new passing fad.

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid The same first letter for all of the sisters and brothers. It's cute when it's two siblings, but if it's three it just seems like a gimmick.

Imagine being the youngest kid, knowing your parents didn't look at you and feel inspired to pick the best name, but were more like "gee, what starts with K that we haven't used up?"

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid I saw on Facebook one of the girls that went to my High School named her daughter Danyell. That's how she thought it was spelled apparently. I also live in a province where they don't fail kids anymore and you can get to grade 10 without being literate.

Edit: I guess the education system in Canada just sucks overall.

30 People Share What Baby Name Immediately Makes Them Think The Parents Are Stupid Recently they made it legal in Poland to name your child whatever you want. So people are coming up with these appalling Polish-spelled versions of English names they know from the movies. The "Brajan" and "Dżesika" generation in coming. (That's Brian and Jessica. It's as if an American named their son "Stanni'suave", I guess.)
