Ugly Baby Names (So Ugly They Are Cute?)

Share and Enjoy !


Ugly baby names. Is there even such a thing as an ugly baby name? Deciding on the perfect baby name can be a tough decision for parents.

Do not get me wrong, someone may be reading this and may have one of these names. I am in no way trying to insult you or the person who may have picked this name. Never would I say stupid names or dumb names, everyone has a reason behind the name they choose. That is what is most important. Choosing a name that means something to you for your little one.

Our name is something we were given by our wonderful parents. Some people hate their name and may want to change it. Others grow to love their name and make it their own. Either way, we did not get to chose our name.

That being said there are just some names that aren’t the best sounding or have a harsh meaning. Or some that haven’t made a good impression throughout history.

Others are on the line between being ugly and cute, like the pugs of baby names. Just so ugly that they are cute, (being an owner of a puggle I would know).

See if you agree with any of these ugly or ugly cute names.

The “Big Bang Theory” has made this name cute, but do you really want your little girl having the nickname Bernie? I don’t think so.

This is just an older name that should be left in the past. It doesn’t roll off the tongue and just doesn’t sound pleasant.

If you have ever watched “Hey, Arnold” you will understand why this is a terrible name for your child.


This is a perfect name for a destructive category 5 hurricane. Not for your perfect little lady.


Another name that should be left in the past. I highly doubt this name is one you are considering and that is perfect!
