Choosing what to name your child is no easy task - especially when it involves differing opinions from your partner, parents and in-laws.
So it would be even more disheartening to find that your favourite potential baby name could be ranked as one of the top 100 on the worst-ever list.
Well, one baby site has come up with a list of just that in a bid to deter parents from choosing from these potentially terrible monikers.
Unsurprisingly, a couple of out-there names like ‘Apple’, ‘L’Oreal’ and ‘Diesel’ have made the cut on the list, which details just under 100 monikers.
Meanwhile, the downright offensive ‘Adolf’ and ‘Lucifer’ have also rightly been made redundant as suitable names to call your baby - I mean, let’s be real, if anyone was seriously considering these names, they probably should re-evaluate their choices.
But even simpler names like ‘Simon’, ‘Alice’ and ‘Tracey’ have also topped the list on Emma’s Diary, which is intended to be a bit of ‘light-hearted fun’ for expectant parents.
One of the renounced names, ‘Ahmiracle’, is given to around 800 newborns a year, according to the site, while ‘Mia’ - a name they compare to the abbreviation ‘Missing in action’ - was the 8th most popular name for girls in 2021.
Of course, the site explains that if you love a certain name for your bundle of joy, ‘then you should use it and forget about what anyone else may think.’
Elsewhere, the next extinction-level event is upon us, and thankfully, this one doesn’t include tidal waves or meteors.
But you can kiss goodbye to Berthas, Nigels and Gillians, because according to new research, those names are barely ever given to babies anymore.
And if you’re already blessed (or cursed) with one of the above names, you can thank your parents for that.
Here are the worst-ever baby names according to the site:
