Do you regret coming up with that ever so clever original name you gave your child that plagued them their entire childhood in school into their adult life? Yes? Well, you're not alone!

According to a study done by Mumsnet, 18% of parents had regret when it came to the name they chose for their child. The most common reason for name regret is that the name was too popular. Other reasons included pronunciation and trouble spelling the child's name also. 

The good news is you could always change your child's name if you hate the name that much or they could still go by their middle name instead of their first name. Well, unless that name is horrific too!

If you're expecting a baby in 2018, here are some great name suggestions! 

And these are probably the names you'll want to avoid unless you want to be in that fifth of parents that regret the name they gave their little one.
