Reddit has chosen its worst baby names 'of all time' - and yeah, fair
When it comes to picking a name for our baby, most of us go with names we love. Or maybe ones that have meaning or tradition behind it.
To others again, I reckon, it is all about the novelty factor – they want a moniker that makes their child stand out in a crowd. And some parents use the opportunity to experiment with names that aren't quite – ahem – standard.
But how far is too far?
Here's a list of the worst baby names you should never give your child, according to Reddit users.
@thewildfapper said the worst name they'd heard was Champion. 'I swear to God he was my classmate,' the user added.
