One of the benefits of having a kid is you get to name them. That way, you can honor your grandad, pay your respects to the artist who has inspired you, or... show the world you're a bit weird.

A month ago, Reddit user Hasden2007 asked other users on the platform, "What is the worst name you could give a child?" Turns out, there's no shortage of those.

So far, the post has received over 4.7K replies. From Strawberry Rain to Chastity, here are some of the most upvoted ones.

That was the poor girl who caused an incident at an airport, because the employees could not believe this was her actual name. They laughed at the name and the mother shamed them for laughing at her poor child, when in truth in was her fault for giving her child a ridiculous name like that.

The Puritans would name their girls after cherished virtues. "Felicity, Hope, Charity" are still in use, but "Damn-Fornication" hasn't appeared on "1000 Names for Baby" in quite some time.

Chastity is a virtue name, like Prudence, Grace, Joy or Patience. Virtue names were historically popular with some religious denominations.

It doesn't resonate as well, these days, but Chastity, along with Prudence, Faith, Hope, and Charity (some of the Seven Virtues) were very popular in Christian/Catholic areas from the Middle Ages on forward. Frankly, it's better than when people misspell it as Chasity or Chasdity.

Fencat
Community Member

Chastity is not one of the 7 virtues: faith, hope, charity are the theological virtues: justice, temperance, prudence and magnificence (strength) are the cardinal virtues. This said, chastity certainly was one of the Christian virtues, which were more than seven. Other abstract names of positive concepts were Verity, (truth) Felicity (happiness), Constance (steadfastness).

Omg a girl from school put two names for her unborn daughter on Facebook for "opinions". I quickly worked out it wasn't for an opinion, it was only for positive affirmations because I posted that Chastity is a strippers name and I was unfriended. She called her daughter Chastity
