We love hearing about people's baby names and the stories behind them - but you have to admit they're not all great ideas.
Curious about what cringe-inducing names exist out there, a user on Reddit asked the question “What is the worst baby name you’ve heard recently?”
With over 600 comments, there was a common theme: creative spelling.
“Parents who do the whole 'creative spelling' thing," wrote one person in the comments section. "In almost all interactions, it doesn't matter how it's spelt because you're just saying the name.
“But then when it does matter, it's a hassle to all involved, with no benefit whatsoever.”
Below is a list of the worst baby names ever heard, according to Reddit users.
- Mhavryck (pronounced Maverick)
- Aliviyah (pronounced Olivia)
