Even if we don’t have a bub on the way, most of us have given some thought to what we’ll call our child when the day finally comes along.

It’s no easy decision and there are a helluva lot of things to take into account – like how well the first name suits the surname, that your kid’s not going to be teased for some weird AF name, and what the name means to you and the world.


Some names just jump out at you when you see them, but be warned… because these names are cute AF, but have some of the most cringe-worthy meanings possible.

Don’t believe us? Take a look at Babyology’s finds and rethink your choices…

Byron – “Barn for cows”

Brendan – “Stinking hair”

Cameron – “Crooked nose”

Campbell – “Crooked mouth”


Gideon – “Having a stump for a hand”

Huxley – “Inhospitable place”

 (FYI, a supplanter is someone who takes the place of someone else on purpose).
