When it comes to choosing baby names some parents make terrible choices that can have deeply traumatic effects on their childhood. There is a lot of thinking that goes behind choosing a name for your children, name selections could ultimately lead to your child being a victim of name picking (calling). Name calling can be an awful experience for a kid, so do not let your baby be a victim of the list of “Bad Baby Names” circulating as trends.

I have jotted down a list of names that I’ve come across in both in South Africa and abroad, these names mean different things depending on the culture and language they are associated with.

Dick – Can be confused with a certain male appendage

Mads – Will turn out cool if you’re a crazy Danish Photographer

Wouter - A the name of an infamous South African cardiologist whom created biochemical weapons that could kill off black South African is apartheid unfortunately I have mate who works with me called Wouter

Kyro - I originally wanted to name my son Kyro like the city “Cairo” but my girlfriend refused as it might encourage the child to play bones

Kim – Though the name is unisex and short, this named is shared by billions of people in Asia, do you want that for your child?

Simba – In Africa is means strength, to the rest of the world it means potato crisps.

If you have some baby names that are a lot worst please share. I have also included some images of bad baby names.
