50 Ugliest Baby Names According to Twitter Trend Topic #UglyBabyNames

Sometimes beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And this doesn’t just go for things you experience by sight. It also goes for sounds and one thing people are very opinionated about are names, especially baby names.

Baby names are far easier to judge than an adult’s name since the newborn’s name is just so, well, new. And some names, they be fine for a 43 year-old lawyer (like Howard or Clarence) but not for a cute and cuddly infant. Then there are those grave yard names that have been almost completely retired and were not part of the old school name resurgence (like Bertha or Gertrude).
