I don't have any kids at the moment, but I imagine picking a name for your child is not only important but also a stressful decision that requires a lot of thought. How do you decide on a timeless name or a more unique one? Which names are cooler? Will any names get my kid bullied?! If you’re naming them after a certain family member will other relatives be jealous? I am getting stressed just thinking about it!

Clearly, there are a lot of things to consider before picking a name for your newborn. So before you pick the craziest name you can think of, check out this list.


It's hard to believe that in America we would have a list of names that are for the most part forbidden from use. You can find even more names here. Most states also have rules, but some states like Kentucky have no rules, however. Most of these names are banned across the US, but again it is different everywhere.

3. Adolf Hitler

4. F!nn

5. III

6. Jesus Christ

7. Messiah
