Me and my Dh were talkign about awful baby names, and i thought I'd share.

I used to work in a passport office - and we had an application for a brother and sister....

She was called Florence-Jolly (yes, with the hyphen) and he was called Lionheart! LIONHEART! grin

Still makes me laugh... poor love!

Who's heard of worse?

Kid at my DS's old nursery called Blade.

Why would you?

<sucks teeth> This will not end well. You will now be told off by FJ/Lion's mum.

A colleague at work called her son Mungo - I know there is a saint Mungo etc but every time she talked about him, I just remembered the character from Blazing Saddles Mongo

I heard about a child back home in NZ called (first name) Rhythm (middle name) Ecstasy.

And we mustn't forget Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii.... hmm hmm

Worst one I've heard is 'wolf', screamed at by 2 quite gothic looking parents in the local spar. Child in question was a girl. biscuit

Boy/girl twins - Pele and Cartier.

Connor, which is fine until you realise his surname is Reyer, pronounced 'ree-ur'...

Not sure it's the worst name but when we registered DD's birth the registrar was chuckling at the people before us calling their son Rocket. Bit cool, but probably a bit silly.

She was hilariously unprofessional.

Summa Darlin, fgs why?

God Rocket is a friend of a friend grin, forgot about that, the surname is something pretty cool, I forget what.

There was one in the paper a few years ago and they'd named the baby girl Disney....

Unfortunately the worst I know personally are borne by my unfortunate step nepehews and nieces well, they were before the re namig ceremony that they each chose to take part in between primary and secondary!

The two worst I have come across are a brother and sister called Glint and Toulouse.

CupcakesHay Thu 29-Jul-10 19:25:40

Oh - there's some awful names there! twins def bring out the worse in people!

I think if my Dh had his way we'd have a Disney or an Orlando as he's obsessed!

Connor has to be the funniest (well - with that surname!)

There was a little boy on TV once called Rory McRory! How mean is that?

A friend was going to name her son Wayne... Doesn't sound that bad until you add the surmane King...

Wayne King... LOL!
