“Are The Parents Stupid?”: 20 People Share The Dumbest Baby Names They’ve Encountered

Do you know what’s worse than having a very common name? Having a name people can’t pronounce or you having to spell it letter by letter and them still getting it wrong. So if you are named Robert, Jack, James, Mary, or Emma, embrace it! Because you perhaps saved a ton of time by not having to explain or correct the pronunciation or spelling of it.

However, call it a curse or a blessing, some parents decide to give their offspring rather… unique names. Or names that are pronounced like standard, common names, but their spelling will guarantee you a headache. In these two Reddit threads (1,2), people did not shy away from sharing baby names that they absolutely cannot stand or “make you think that the parents are stupid.” Take a look.

I know someone who is about to name their baby Londyn. Why would you name them a word everybody knows, but not spell it that way? She’ll spend her whole life correcting people.

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.

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.

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.

I was assisting a photographer during my son’s picture day at his elementary school a couple years ago and there was a girl named Areola. All I could think was “why do the parents of this adorable little girl HATE HER??”

Girl at the gas station was explaining her daughter’s name to the clerk. She named her daughter “Anesthesia”. Spelled exactly like the doctory drug, but pronounced Anastasia like the movie..

Ryvar (pronounced River). I’ll never understand unique names that come at the expense of atrocious spelling.

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.)

Basically, anything ending in ‘ayden’. Things like Zayden and Rayden.

And not sure if it’s real, but Traylor sound hilarious.

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.

Your name is special. It is the first thing others will note of you, and it will be the basis of how they will perceive you. You are known because of your name, whatever you do, whatever you will be remembered, it will be preserved in your name.

Therefore, the name must be remarkable, something that has some hidden reason behind it. From what or whom were you named? Is it from both of your parents’ names combined? Is it because of your mom’s favorite place? Or maybe your dad’s childhood friend? I’m pretty sure it holds something significant.

However, the question of “What or who were you named after?” will turn into “What were your parents thinking?” once you’ve seen these truly bizarre and literally unique names that no one has ever been named before.
