Baby Names People Begged Loved Ones Not To Use

Coming up with a name for your baby is hard, but some parents definitely seem to struggle with it more than others. Some names just don’t sound good together, while others are inappropriate, but moms and dads don’t seem to notice. BuzzFeed asked readers to share the baby names they tried to talk someone out of using and these are some of the most memorable.

  • "I had a friend who thought the name Harry was adorable. Their last name was Cox, which is bad as it is, but they wanted to name their kid Harry Cox. It didn't occur to them how bad that name sounded when you said it. When the kid turned 18, the first thing he did was legally change his first name to his middle name (which was Luke), and when he got married he took his wife's last name."
  • "Someone I knew was trying to stop their family member from naming their kid Rudolf."
  • "My cousin wanted to name her baby girl Rosacea. Yes, like the skin condition. We all talked her out of it. My Dad won by telling her, 'Please don't jinx your baby with that name.' Out of fear of accidentally pre-diagnosing her baby with rosacea, she opted for Rosa."
  • "A friend named her daughter Flor, which is very pretty and means flower in Spanish. But most people in the US will say, 'Floor?' and have no clue about the meaning behind the name."
  • "Lulabelle Lois Ann. They changed it one month after the birth."
  • "My niece wanted to name her daughter Myracle'honesty. I sent her texts for six months with hundreds of other names. I was not successful. She is now 14."
  • "My next-door neighbor's mom is a maternity nurse. There was a young girl who wanted to name her daughter Latrina. And once she was told what a latrine was, she went in a different direction."
  • "My friends named their son Colin Oliver Campbell, or as his initials spell COC."
  • "I know a girl whose last name is Cash, and her dad wanted to name her Penny. Luckily for her, mom vetoed it so she wouldn't get bullied."
  • "My brother's friend and his wife wanted to name their son Green, the friend’s childhood nickname. When they announced the name, my brother tried to talk them out of it. He said that no one would ever take such a name seriously and the kid would always be asked what their real name was. He ended his text chain by saying that they'd be better off naming the kid Arson. My brother says this is a reference to a baseball meme. They ended up ditching the idea of naming the kid Green. When they announced their son's birth we discovered they had named him Arson."
