16 Of The Worst Baby Names Of 2016
Baby names: What to choose? Expectant moms shouldn’t take this decision lightly, as the name you give your son or daughter might be super cool … or possibly cause therapy. (Think, think, think, think.) Check out the top 21 worst baby names of 2016 according to Reddit users.
Nope, there are no typos here. Elizabreth — as one Reddit user pointed out — sure could sound like “Lizard Breath,” depending on the right kid to poke fun at your baby’s name.
“Mom, why does my name sound like something from The Lord of the Rings?” Meldor sounds strong.
Apparently Reddit users really dislike “creative spelling.” Alrighty then! If you’re wondering how to pronounce it, here’s a hint: Olivia Wilde, Olivia Newton-John, Olivia Pope …
This rendition of “Maverick” might cause your kid’s teacher to do a double take. Those Reddit users really don’t like the use of Y’s instead of I’s!
“Beberly hills,” quipped one Reddit user.
“Danger, Will Robinson. Danger!” Soo maybe Lost in Space wasn’t the inspiration for this baby name. You gotta admit, it does live on the wild side. And, guess what? Danger is a unisex name.

Well … we know someone named “Baby” (who cares if she was fictitious) who had the summer of her life, found love, and learned how to dirty dance. All jokes aside, Baby is a pretty sweet unisex name choice.
Who knows if this is a unisex name or not. “Merika” sounds kinda patriotic. Maybe the baby who gets this name will want to make America great again.
Do you just love the name “Jessica”? Can you not live without “Erica”? Well, now you don’t have to choose — because you can mold them together into “Jerica.”
