Musk is a cruel bastard. There are other really terrible names, but that has to be the most idiotic.

Some unfortunate girls in the Soviet Union were named “Ninel”, which is “Lenin” spelled backwards.

29 Times Kids Didn’t Win The Name Lottery, As Pointed Out By Members Of This Online Group We just hired a guy whose first, middle, and last name is the same, but spelled 3 different ways lol I don’t want to actually say his name on the off chance by some miracle he sees this or it gets back to him, but I think it’s terrible. Like if your parents named you Shaun Sean Shawn lol

29 Times Kids Didn’t Win The Name Lottery, As Pointed Out By Members Of This Online Group I've twice tried to post this on the tragedeigh Facebook group and haven't been approved because they think I'm bulls***tting, but I have had confirmation on this from several people who lived in my city at the time of this. 


My mom taught at a school in the 80s where there was 2 siblings, one named Hallelujahthemessiahiscoming, and Repentorburnforever. 

I thought my mom was BSing for years until my coworker told me my mom was a teacher at her school when she was a student in the 80s.i asked my coworker about this, and she said yes, she was a little older than those kids but remembered them because they were in swimming classes at the local pool she was a lifeguard at. She told me her younger brother knew them and said at least one of them got into [illegal substances] later.

If this is in reference to Michael Jackson’s kid then just remember that Blanket is a nickname, not his actual name. It is Prince Michael Jackson II

Not joking. Was working security in MN and a trucker came in to sign in. As he's writing his name, I glanced at his name. 'Derf'. I felt bad for his childhood.

This name did not age well. Gay used to mean happy and when it did that's a sort of nice name. I mean I still wouldn't pick it wether it means happy or I want to f**k someone of my gender

Think it's meant to be pronounced Absidee... not the worst pronounciation-wise, I guess...

You've never been to Ireland ..... many, many Aiden's there who are delightful, law abiding, funny and hospitable people including at least 4 generations of a friend of mine, funnily enough, called Aiden.
