Choosing a baby name can be one of the hardest decisions a parent can make.
While some people have a list they decided on years ago, others don’t have a clue what they want to call their little one.
And while many baby naming experts aim to help find the “best names”, one parenting site has now come up with an opposing list for those with newborns, The Sun reports.
Emma’s Diary, which gives baby and pregnancy advice, shared their thoughts on the top 50 “worst” baby names of all time – for both boys and girls.
The “worst” names list was originally shared last year, but has recently resurfaced online.
It goes without saying that the team at Emma’s Diary are keen to stress that the list is only intended to be a bit of fun and not cause any offence.
They said: “ If you love a certain name, then you should use it and forget about what anyone else may think.”
The top 50 list for boys features a number of names – with some more self explanatory than others.
Adolf, Sadman and Ebolah are among some of the worst choices on the list.
While Satan, Lucifer and Danger are also ranked within the top 50 and are names some parents might well want to avoid.
Other monikers such as Boris might well be unpopular because of their recent association with high-profile individuals.
The girls list features a number of names more commonly associated with other items such as Flora, Maybelline, Chardonnay.
While some seem like perfectly fine names, they were included for their unusual spellings.
Some of the worst offending girls names were Appaloosa, Boomquifa and Tu Morrow.
Unbelievably, some parents – who clearly don’t have a vivid imagination – have named their child “Any” and “Baby”.
Surprisingly Alice made the list too, likely due to Smokie song Who the F… Is Alice?”
