100 worst baby names compiled by parenting experts – is yours on the list? – Chronicle Live

Choosing a baby name can be one of the hardest things to do, with so many options to pick from and opinions from seemingly everyone.

Now, a list of 100 of the “worst” baby names – for both boys and girls – has been revealed by parenting experts, with some pretty controversial additions.

The list was shared by parenting expert site Emma’s Diary, and on the girls’ side Emma, Aimee, Mia, Skye and Alice all come under fire whilst boys names include the hugely popular John, Sonny, George and Louis.

The boy’s name Bear, which experts at baby name dictionary site Nameberry predicted would be one of the most popular baby names for 2022, also made the list. The name was also the choice for Geordie singer Cheryl Tweedy and One Direction bandmate Liam Payne’s baby boy born in 2017.

The name Boris was scoffed at for its link to the current Prime Minister Boris Johnson, whilst George was accused of being ruined by children’s TV show Peppa Pig, as its Peppa’s ‘annoying little’ brother’s moniker.

“Baby Tracey doesn’t work” according to the list, and Alexa was slammed for its similarity to the smart speaker, Amazon Alexa.

So the question to ask is: does your little one’s name feature?
