It seems parents will name their kids anything these days. In reaction to this, I named my child (simply) Lucas James to try to reverse the trend. When he started daycare, I was appalled at the weird names these kids have. One is named Kountri (pronounced "country"). YUCK. What's the worst you have heard?

Any variation of the "ADEN" names:
Clayden (Seen it, I swear)

That and anybody who names their kid something that sounds like Kay-lee and spells it all jacked up, as if Keighleigh isnt the same fucking name.

A quick look at babies born out of Hollywood will easily give you really odd names. Like Nicholas Cage naming his son Kal-El....

With a fucking "X".

The whole traditional last name as a first name trend (Riley, Miller, Barron, whatever...) is pretty annoying to begin with, but when the parents get all Atari 2600 with the spelling... gimme a break.

Runner up:

India (white girl's name)

StaggerLee beat me. I just saw that Aidan (or some spelling variation) was the Most Popular Name for Boys born in the US in 2005.

Makayla and Ava (on the top 10 list for girls) are pretty weird too.

But anything's better than Craphonso.

My brother in law went to school with one set of twins named Lemonjello and Oranjello and another set named Male, pronounced Molly, and Female. No, I didn't believe him either until he showed me his yearbook with their names and pictures.

In debate in High School, I used to compete against a young lady named Chastity Marie Virgin.

It may be a legend only, but I've heard that someone named their son Shithead, pronounced (shi-thade).

Otherwise, anytime parents "make up" a name or spelling variation for their child they should be shot. Also, no child should be subjected to names like Prince, King, or Queenie.

Food names are bad. Candy is the one that comes to mind, but I'm sure there are others.-- And initials that make words (or close) or match an acronym, like Jeff Alan Kramer or David Orin Spells.

There was a college basketball player in the late '90s named God Shamgod. He played for Providence. I don't personally see the upside of naming you son "God", and it's only made worse by a last name with "god" in it.

And I'm just now realizing the irony of him playing for that particular college.

Espn. Pronounced Espen. A TV station.

I, however, rock one of the surnames coverted into a first name. Travis.

I work in a call centre. Actual customer names either myself, or my agents have received over the 4 years I've been there ...

Long Wang
Harry Muff
Jenny Craig
Max Wiener (from Dildo, Newfoundland)
Ailing Wang
Aike (prononced Achy) Wang
Fok Yu
Bin Atul (he and I *really* had it out as well, he was one irate dude!)
Oliver Cockburn
Ron McDonald

I swear to god I have not made a single one up .... I have a list of them at work that I've collected over the years, along with the account number so that new agents who don't believe me can access their files. There's probably 25 more that I've forgotten, but every time I see them, I realize that there are some parents that certainly could have used a little more time analyzing the idea of a name.

I'll forgive the Asian ones. But Harry Muff is just wrong.

There used to be a name in the Harrisburg phone book in the late 90s to the early 2000s, "Adolph Macock". Whoever named this guy had to be the most sadistic parent on earth...

That is the worst name I've ever, EVER, seen.

Only slightly off topic, and this is 100% true, a while ago in Sarnia, Ontario a man named Wills Rawana ran for mayor. He didn't win, but if he did, he would have become...

Mayor Rawana.

I know a guy named Gay - not Gaylord - Gay

Strange spellings - maybe I am guilty. My Children's names are Rebekah and Kyle Curtis - but everyone knows him as KC.

You just can't find Disney door plates with those names on them.

My dad used to teach school and he had a female student who's first name was "Ollejegnaro" (Orange Jello spelled backwards).

My dad also went to high school with a kid named "Jack Goff".

I went to school with a kid named "Harry Dick", and I walked into a Wendy's resturaunt once and their recent employee of the month on the wall was "John Fuck".

It's really too easy to pick on celebrities with this topic but the worst ones, I think, are Bob Geldolf, who named his daughter Fifi Trixiebelle, and Penn Jillette (of Penn & Teller), who named his daughter Moxie CrimeFighter. Eesh.

Jason Lee: Pilot Inspektor.

Thank goodness celebs usually have the money to pay the thousands in therapy bills those names will lead to.
