Since the dawn of time people have always been picked on for having names that may rhyme with something, or for being a bit different. When I was a kid, anyone named Stacy would be told: "their mom had it going on." Thanks to the 2003 song ' Stacy's mom.'

But now thanks to the internet and memes some names may be cursed forever. It may be best not to name your kids these names, and if you have this name... I am so sorry, hopefully, you've become a pro at making it cool!

The Names

Before we begin, no hate to anyone with these names! If you have one of these names stay strong and fight against the negative stereotype that has been given to you and everyone sharing your great name! Don't keep the ridiculous internet memes alive!

3. Kyle

The name Kyle is used to make fun of someone if they are upset and overreacting. Kyle is now known as the name of a guy who punches holes in the drywall and is always angry.

2. Chad

This one depends on context. Bad Chad is referred to as a dumb jock who is a pig. "Good" Chad is seen as an "Alpha male."

Honorable mentions

These might be dishonorable depending on how you look at them...

Becky: A Becky is considered to be one of three things if not all. Rich, dumb, or mean. So odds are someone is insulting you if they call you Becky.

Felicia: As in "bye Felicia."

Molly: Due to the connection with drugs this name has been ruined for many.

Now let's Look at that number one spot!

1. Karen

Probably the most hated of the names, Karen now means the person who gets upset by everything. Usually used towards older people, being called Karen is far from a compliment. It means you are WAY too controlling, noisy, or mean! Sorry aunt Karen, I still think you're awesome!

Would You Change Your Name?

Some people have gone as far as to change their names because of these memes. I know a YouTuber who changed his name from Chad to his last name. Most people just make a joke of their name since our names are a bit out of our control, but sometimes the internet pushes people far enough to change their names.

Some have tried a different approach, and attempted to milk their different names for that sweet sweet internet fame! Do you know of any other names that were just wrecked by the internet or even pre-internet? Let us know those crazy stories!

Illegal Pets In The Quad Cities

Every state has laws when it comes to owning pets. No matter how badly you want these pets, you could see some fines for having them.

Ghosts Of The Station

Today we will be looking at three ghost sightings, and the spots they were seen at.

These three "Ghosts" could all be the same one or three different ones. Though I still think the Music video ghost is by far the creepiest. As far as we know that was the only figure we ever caught on film, and not just in a picture.
