Ugly Baby Names (Meaning, Origin, and Popularity)

Filed in Articles by on August 29, 2022

We’ve listed some ugly baby names that shouldn’t be an option for you when naming your child.

ugly baby names

Are there really ugly names? Yea! Names that the meaning doesn’t go well or sound offensive are definitely ugly!!

Ugly Baby Names 

These are ugly baby names that you should stay clear from

1. Ursula

I don’t know if Disney called the sea witch Ursula because it’s ugly, or if we just think of it as ugly because of the sea witch. But that’s not important.

2. Peggy

As a moniker, Peggy lacks feminity and grace. It makes us think of a waitress in a restaurant or someone with two peg legs. Yes, we know that it makes no sense.

3. Gretchen

Some people truly like this name. All I hear is the “retch”. And vomit is pretty much the ugliest possible thing.

4. Gertrude

It doesn’t roll off the tongue, that’s for sure. The sound is just unappealing.

5. Prudence

We don’t really have anything against this name, but just that it would suit an ancient aunt than a baby.

6. Mildred

I highly doubt anyone reading this was ever considering naming their baby Mildred. So for that, I thank you.

7. Olga

Olga is actually a name that means beautiful in Russian. Don’t you think Olga sounds too much like an old guy or something?

8. Irma

I’ll tell you what Irma is the perfect name for a horrid, destructive, category 5 hurricane. Let’s keep it that way.

9. Helga

The name Helga peaked in 1899, and unlike some old-fashioned baby names, it should stay buried.

10. Virginia

What if the kid ends up with a speech impediment and goes around calling herself Vagina??? That’s a risk I’m not willing to take.

11. Sue

Sue will make an excellent name for a cat or dog, but not a girl. And sue is another term for prosecute. So without giving it a second thought, pick some other name for your child.

12. Delores

Remember the episode of Seinfeld about the name that rhymes with a female body part?

13. Edith

Edith would fall on the good side of old lady names, not the ugly.


Annoying Ugly Baby Names

These are annoying ugly names you should avoid.

14. Bertha

The first word that comes to mind when I hear Bertha is “big”. Do you want your daughter to be “Big Bertha”?

15. Bernadette

I know some cool people with the name Bernadette, but honestly, I’ve always wondered what in the world their parents were thinking.

16. Milton

Nerd alert! There is nothing cute about Milton. Martin would be a more appealing alternative.

17. Bruce

If you’re hoping your baby boy comes out of the womb with a beard, try this name.

18. Earl

It sounds like whining even if you aren’t trying to.

19. Myrtle

Myrtle is just begging to be made into a joke. Is the joke fertile Myrtle? Myrtle the turtle? I don’t even know. But it’s there.

20. Esther

Esther isn’t rolling off anyone’s tongue. The “s” followed by “th” combo takes serious effort.

21. Greer

Another name that’s hard to say. Greer is reminiscent of the sound an angry cat makes.

22. Martha

A cute little girl could totally rock Martha. Sure it’s old but in a classic/historical way. Don’t we all have a bit of affection towards Martha Washington?

23. Ida

The uber-popular name Ava has caused a subsequent surge in the popularity of Ada. It’s only logical that Ida will be the next step.

24. Eighmey

Eighmey is supposedly the creative spelling for Amy. Seriously, why do people even come up with variations? It looks hideous.

25. Taira Rose

This name is incredibly cheesy. It sounds less like a name and more like a pink shade, you know dusty rose, brick rose, similarly, tiara rose.

26. Dusk

We thought Dawn was the silliest, considering that it is subjected to regional accents, but it is at least optimistic. Dawn, on the other hand, is strange and even depressing.

27. Apple

We still cannot get over Gwyneth Paltrow naming her baby Apple. The fact that the trend never caught on says enough of the name.

Scary Ugly Baby Names

Ugly Baby Names

You sure don’t want to scare people away from your baby.

28. Matyson

There’s also an instance of someone naming his or her child Matyson, instead of Madison. That’s just a bit too unique.

29. North West

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West name their daughter North West. No joke!

30. Bob

We don’t mean to exaggerate, but it’s no less than child abuse to name your kid Bob. Bob is usually considered a short form for Roberta.

31. Adolf

No explanation is needed. Pick another name.

32. Moon Unit

Frank Zappa has a history of bad naming habits. Or maybe he wants her daughter to excel in science. Just maybe!

33. Angus

In addition to the association with beef, Angus has a uniquely unappealing sound.

34. Gaylord

The poor, little kid will have to fight in the schoolyard daily. This name should just be banned.

35. Tierrainney

This name is so packed with letters that it will implode on itself.

36. Elmer

Elmer Fudd, Elmer’s glue… can’t think of anything cute about Elmer.

37. Grogda

Grogda sounds like a green witch or a green toad. Certainly not the best name to bestow on your child.

38. Hellzel

Combined names can never ever be a good idea. According to Hellzel, her mother liked the name Hazel and her father loved hells angels, so they came up with this mess.

39. Ninel

Do you know the history of this name? The name entered the mainstream during the Russian revolution and it is Lenin spelled backward.

40. Phelony

Naming someone Phelony is borderline criminal. The name is apparently a variation of a felony, which most of us know what it means.

41. Eugene

Eugene Fitzherbert knew what he was doing when he changed his name to Flynn Ryder.

42. Henrietta

This name makes a statement! It’s bold, but with a feminine side. I can picture a super cute little Henrie or even Etta with this name.

43. Kaizyle

Kaizyle is not just weird as hell but is also confusing to pronounce.

44. Weegee

Weegee sounds like Luigi but is much grosser. It’s like something a toddler would call an adult as a nickname.

45. Arthur

Arthur is one of those graveyard names that has retired completely and show no signs of resurgence.

46. Marty

Extremely cruel of parents who opted for this moniker. The child will grow up hating this name.

47. Angus

Angus would be fine for a 43-year-old doctor, but definitely not for a cuddly infant.

48. Thermopylae

What is it even? A mythical god’s name? A combination name? No! Thermopylae is a town in Greece. But does the bearer of this name even know that?

49. Yetzel

Yetzel sounds so much like a pretzel. So here’s one food-inspired name for you, but with a slight twist.

50. Kal-El

Some celebs like to believe that their children have superpowers, like Nicolas Cage.

51. Mor’a’mang

A child in Africa was named Mor’a’mang, which means ‘whose son is it?

52. Ingrid

It’s definitely dancing on the ugly-cute line, but the uniqueness has some appeal.

53. Seaman

When you can have a Cruise, why not Seaman? It also sounds like the name of a superhero residing in the ocean.

54. Cannon

Were the parents of this child in the military? Then what made them choose this name? The name would look and would sound weirder if the last name was a ball.
