Choosing your baby's name can be one of the hardest and most important decisions you'll ever make as parents. You'll spend hours discussing and deliberating the pros and cons of each name and, finally, you'll come to a decision.
The perfect name for your unborn baby.
"Let us introduce you to little Avocado." WTF!
Seriously what are some parents thinking when they choose these ridiculous and completely inappropriate names? Now, finally, some are getting their comeuppance.
In 2018, over 500 people named their babies Khaleesi after their favorite GoT character. Ahh, the beautiful and sweet-natured Mother of Dragons.
Bet they are regretting that decision now.
But that's not even the worst name we found... not by far.
GoT fans, spoilers may be ahead if you're not caught up yet!
We understand that choosing a name for your child is hard work.
Like, seriously, who in their right mind would call their baby Facebook?
No to naming your baby, Facebook, no to naming your baby, WikiLeaks. #NO— lauren (@lauren)1401764886.0
And talking of hashtags...
I'll leave you tonight with this disturbing fact. Someone has named their baby Hashtag. Here you are, on Facebook. X http://t.co/uAR35RuldW— Kate Robbins (@Kate Robbins)1408832201.0
These aren't the only terrible technology-inspired names.Alexa, a shortened version of Alexandra, was once one quite popular but you'd be kicking yourself now if you named your baby girl this shortly before Amazon Echo's digital personal assistant was released.
And it's not only Amazon's AI that people have taken inspiration from.

Here's the most ridiculous name in the world - actually, we don't even think it can be classed as a name.Some fool actually called their child, ???. Yep, the actual emojis are the child's name.
Moving on, let's look at names that some parents think are cute but are actually sickening.
I was reading a list of the worst baby names of this year.. And someone truly named their child "Little Sweetmeat" 🤔— Courrt ❄️ (@Courrt ❄️)1481411338.0
Nevaeh is another one of these names.
Girls named Nevaeh are born with a predilection for American Spirit cigarettes & pre-booking on "Maury" when they have their 1st baby at 13.— Horatio Quartzjixler (@Horatio Quartzjixler)1451907646.0
Then there are those parents that like to name their babies after their favorite food and drink.

Now we all know of a certain Hollywood actress who named their baby after a piece of fruit.
We know "kids and grown-ups love it so", but really?
the world just went drastically downhill after seeing someone i have on facebook has seriously named their baby 'haribo'— Rachel Porteous (@Rachel Porteous)1348071031.0
And for those healthy types.
Everyone on the Bachelor has a baby at home named Kale.— Laura Silverman (@Laura Silverman)1441085576.0
Names that have sexual connotations should not even be on the table.No, not Meg, although that would be cruel too. But Orgasm. Seriously what hope does a kid called Orgasm have? And who allowed their parents the right to reproduce?
Oh look it's little Chlamydia. Isn't her laugh infectious?
my doctor just said he delivered a baby and the parents named her chlamydia & they thought it was a gorgeous plant from Aruba 😂— dominique (@dominique)1424470052.0
We also love reading about ridiculous names that celebrities have given their unsuspecting offspring.

And who could forget the awful name that Woody Allen and Mia Farrow gave to their son?
My favorite has to be Woody Allen and Mia Farrow's son Satchel. Close second, Jermaine Jackson's daughter Jermajesty.— Evil Cakes (@Evil Cakes)1361942864.0
It sometimes feels like certain celebrities keep having more children just so they can dream up more and more ridiculous names.Like celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver. Now brace yourselves. His large brood is called: Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Petal Blossom, Buddy Bear, and River Rocket. Nauseating.
But what's even worse are parents who name their kids after their favorite fictional character regardless of how bad the actual name is.

It may seem sweet to name a brother and sister Ross and Rachel.

More recently, parents have been naming their babies after characters from their favorite TV show, Game of Thrones.
Now we have to admit that Arya is pretty badass, so maybe this one's not such a poor choice after all.Let's wait and see what happens in the finale though before we call judgment...
Sansa has not fared quite so well.
Khaleesi was the favorite by far.
Well, perhaps one that isn't inspired by a character who has recently completely lost the plot and burned an entire city to the ground...
