The Craziest Baby Names of 2015
Royal and other aspirational names have become epidemic among both celebrities and civilians. This particular religeo-royal smoosh was given to 6 boys last year. In addition, there were several Kweens, 17 Contesssas, 10 Duchesses, as well as Emperors, Czars, Pharoahs, Gods, Gurus and Bosses.

- Jonathan Davis did use it for his son in 2007 it was no doubt an homage to Led Zeppelin, though he named another boy Pirate, so who knows? Zeppelin made it to the boys’ list for the first time in 1995, coming on for girls in 2013." >

Pretty sure Jream and Jrue are meant to be J’Ream and J’Rue, but apostrophes (or any kind of punctuation) don’t register on the SSA database.

I’m cutting Oliber some slack hoping it was just used by Hispanic parents who pronounce V and B the same.

Xzayden is so so bad.

These are all horrible (especially God- what?!). But I feel like Oliber could be a typo of Oliver seeing as b and v are next to each other on the keyboard.

When Kingmessiah first popped up, I knew this list was going to be just so cringeworthy.
And I was right. CRINGE.

Is this what comes of neglecting to teach spelling in the public schools and telling kids to use “inventive” spelling?
It is getting to the point that I like any name that is spelled right.
A child’s name should not be a punchline. If the mother has a strong urge to be called Onnessstie and the father a deep desire to be called ObbnoxxIOUS, let them change their own names.

I can definitely understand why parents pick unusual names for their kids, like Courage or Knight or what have you.
I can even sort of understand the impulse to take a more common name and spell it differently, like Kaytlinn or Meckenzie.
What I’ll never understand is the combination– an uncommon name spelled oddly. Genesis is already rare– why spell it Jynisis?

Eek. Some of these are just so awful. Pistol? Not even a redeeming nickname, just an even worse choice.

This list was so bad it was awesome! 😀 Keep these lists coming periodically, it’s like a guilty pleasure!

Wow, these are some truly terrible names! Here’s hoping these kids’ classmates will go easy on them….

“Zippy Dirigible” is a less bizarre name than some on this list. Ha.
