People share the worst baby names they’ve heard and it’s bad news for Psamantha

Social media users have been sharing the worst baby names they’ve heard after a thread began on Twitter, and some of the entries are hilariously bad – including Psamantha and Kingslayer

People have been sharing the worst baby names they’ve ever heard and some of the entries are hilariously bad.

Social media users flocked to a popular thread to comment their entries, which range from Diesel Duramax to Psamantha – which we assume is pronounced with a silent ‘P’.

As the Daily Star reports, other entries include Kingslayer, Khaleesi, and Crystal Shining Waters, and one poster shared how a friend named their children after astronomy – not so bad for Galaxy, but not great for Uranus.

Naming your new baby must be a daunting task as you don’t want to choose something that could lead to your child being bullied – but it’s hard to see why one parent settled on Jacuzzi.

One commenter said: “My coworker named her baby ‘Strawberry Rain.’ Which would be a great baby name, if she had given birth to a bottle of shampoo.”

And another Twitter poster criticised a parent who named their son Anakin despite their other children having traditional names.

A third noted: “Met a girl named Jennifert in college…Jennifer with a T. Why? Because her parents wanted her to be different.”

And, a third commented: “My kids used to have friends in school whose names were Neptune, Galaxy, and Uranus. All girls.

“And no, this is NOT a legend or a myth. Their parents were astronomers. Poor Uranus got it the worst.”

Also listed on the social media thread was the name Cocaine, Phelany (pronounced the same as Felony), Paige Turner and Kviiilyn (pronounced Kaitlyn as in K-8-lyn).

A teacher wrote: “I’m teaching in an elementary classroom and had a boy named Jacuzzi. That was a fun one.”

“Reinbeaux (pronounced rainbow),” noted another.

We’re surprised that nobody mentioned Elon Musk and singer Grimes’ baby: “X Æ A-12”.
