What are some names people would probably NEVER name their kids?

Asked by Dutchess_III (27494 points ) March 28th, 2014

Someone just mentioned the name Clarice. It made my skin crawl, although it is, actually, a nice name.

I’m punchy too @Adirondackwannabe. If recent discussions here are any indication, all of us are punchy! Must be spring.

Ulva.

@janbb Mulva! So true…

I heard about someone who wanted to name their daughter Placenta… They didn’t know what it meant.
I also know someone who thinks Gonorrhea is a pretty name… She does know what it means.

I guess it’s better than syphilis or herpes.

People are strange. I don’t think any name could be ruled out.

JLeslie's avatar

Lexy and Alexia sound like anorexia to me. Most people like those names.

Dutchess_III's avatar

MY SISTER’S NAME IS LEXY!!! She’s only a little anorexic, though.

@Dutchess_III – wasn’t Latrine the name of that crazy woman in Robin Hood: Men in Tights ?

Juels's avatar

^^^^
Latrine: Used to be Shithouse.
Prince John: It’s a good change.

Ha, some even name their children Adolf Hitler

Dutchess_III's avatar

Yeah @elbanditoroso!

Yes, seriously, @JLeslie. She’s 5’ 10” and the last time I went shopping with her she wore a size 2. So yeah. Seriously.

JLeslie's avatar

@Dutchess_III I hope I didn’t upset you?

Clitorina
Vulva
Incontinentea
Labia

Dutchess_III's avatar

No! Not at all @JLeslie. I thought it was ironic that you linked the two things and my sister IS named Lexy and she IS somewhat anorexic! :D

Dutchess_III's avatar

LOLL!! Clitorina!

Fun fact: Harpo Marx’s real name was Adolph, and was later changed to Arthur.

Pachy's avatar

Yes, @filmfann, and another fun fact is that properly pronounced, Chico is pronounced “Chick-o, ” not “Cheeko.” He was so nicknamed because he loved to chase the ladies.

ucme's avatar

If we’re talking film stars names, Marion (John Wayne) for a boy…really?

What a name, especially for a “wrestler”

livelaughlove21's avatar

I can’t stand names like Sunny or Rayne/Raine or Stormy. They just annoy me. My brother-in-law once dated a girl named Stormy whose sister’s name was Sunny. I’ve never met their parents, but I’m pretty sure I hate them anyway.

@ucme A friend who teaches English As a Second Language once had a Russian student called Vladimir, he introduced himself to the class and added “but you can call me vulva”, my friend then explained to him why that might not be such a good idea.

cheebdragon's avatar

Satan, Lucifer, Beelzebub….

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@cheebdragon Why not? Those are all cool.

Shithead

ucme's avatar

@Adagio At least it wasn’t a class for the hard of hearing, he’d be very good at lip reading.

Dutchess_III's avatar

@dxs Too late! I’ve named all of my kids that one at one point or another! And Dumbass.

Kardamom's avatar

Dumbsh*t, spelled exactly as I have written it, with the symbol.

cheebdragon's avatar

I knew a kid named Dallas William swallows….or Dallas will swallow….either way I think his mom must have hated him. Poor kid.

rojo's avatar

I know someone who, when she got married, hyphenated her name and now she is Crosswhite-Peeples.

I think this is odd anyway
