Baby names are a delicate thing, some may love a parents’ choice while others will hate their decision with a passion.

An annoyed mother took to Mumsnet for mothers to share the names they abhor. 

The unnamed mother began the thread by sharing that she overheard a child being called Beige in a local supermarket.

Sparking a chain in name shaming, one mother stated that she once heard a boy named Raspberry while another heard a parent call their child Bubbles.

Here are some of the strange names the mothers shared on the forum:

  • Venezuela
  • Bronte 
  • Piper-Rose
  • Hagley
  • Lolly
  • Bubbles
  • Raspberry
  • Aryan
  • Elowan
  • Justique
  • Oceania
  • Wolf
  • Emerald
  • Mabel
  • Scout
  • Vega
  • Hernia
  • Bambi
  • Peaches
  • Oty
  • Huxley
  • Nemesis
  • Rowdy
  • Timotei
  • Dolphin
  • Carbnaby
  • Modesty

While Australian deemed ‘bogan’ names are starting to fizzle out, these baby names take the cake.
