I often wonder what the heck was going through a person's mind when they picked out the crazy name they gave their baby. Do they not think of the long-term issues the child may have when he or she is in elementary school or a grown adult trying to find a job in the real world?

Every year a new list of terrible names goes viral. And with every year, I swear that the names just keep getting worse ever year. If you are struggling to find a name for the bundle of joy that will make their arrival in just a few short months there are books, websites, and even baby naming services to help you make a more informed decision. Plus, shouldn't you run your name ideas by a few family members or friends just to play it safe?

Mumsnet is a blog and discussion site for parents, and it asked people to reveal some of the worst baby names they have ever heard. Here are the ones that stood out the most for me... 

1. Daddy-Cool 

2. Ita Peach (Would that be pronounced "eat a peach?")

3. Harry Potter

4. Richard Head (I'll let you figure out why that one is so wrong on your own.)

5. Dickie Bird

6. Tinkabelle

7. Randy Dick

8. Hashtag Jameson 

9. Phelony (as in felony spelled with a PH)

10. Uteraz (Perhaps inspired by the space he occupied for 40 weeks?)
