    Worst names you have ever heard?

    What are the worst names you have ever actually heard of a real person? (Not counting Ima Hogg and La-a urban legends.) It can be a really weird one, or some of the "trendy" new made-up names that a lot of kids are now being named.

    Poor Farnold Degand had it pretty rough. :( Whenever my husband and I would hear his name at a game, we'd say, "Hey, Faaarnold!" (like from the old Nickelodeon show).

    (Please no insulting other members.)

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    There are two that come to mind right away that are kids of people I know.

    1. Lox Love
    2. Raven Blackbird

    Then there is the story from a farming magazine about 8-9 years ago about a farmer in Illinois and it said he had twin boys whose names were Briggs and Stratton.

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    My family is full of teachers so I've heard my fair share of stupid names. One of my favorites was, and I'm not 100% on the spelling, but Le-a. Pronounced Leia maybe? Leeya? Nope. Le-dash-ah, yes, the dash is part of the name.

    Re: Worst names you have ever heard?

    I was at Hy Vee the other day and some lady was chasing around her kid yelling "Hey Carpenter come here". I was embarrassed for the kid. Also why is it that when someone names there kid something stupid they have to say it over and over and over around me. It's annoying.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Is this in east Des Moines? My buddy did student teaching last semester there and I think he might have said this name.

    I knew a construction supe by the name of "Red" Cox. Also, Hurl Beechum was a moniker I wouldn't wish on anyone.
