Needed: an Abundance ofl Awfully Appalling Appellations

So I’m working on a childrens/teen series, and in most cases I am having a blast coming up with lovely, unusual names for all of the characters. Except…there is one rather large family, most of whom remain nameless at the moment, because my requirement for their names is that they be truly atrocious, though not in a mean spirited way. To give you an idea, the one child in their family who has a name was Heavenleigh [name]Grayce[/name] (lucky for her, she was adopted as a baby and given a much more pleasing name). This fits my idea because it’s obnoxiously themey and terribly spelled.

[name]Little[/name] Heavenleigh is one of several siblings, so I need as many names as you can think of. Berries obviously have fantastically stylish taste :wink: so here is your chance to disregard everything you hold dear and come up with the kind of names you yourself would try to talk a soon-to-be parent out of. Go wild!

I’m not looking for urban legend names like La-a or female, so please none of those. I also don’t want real names of people you know. My preference would be for names that sound way ott in a way that would be obvious and either cringe-worthy or hilarious to children/teens, but that are still in some way conceivable. Puns and misspellings are very much welcome, and parental bonuses are a real treat. :slight_smile:

Sounds like you may need some word/virtue/nature names for your characters. Here are some that I would never think of calling a human being but they may be what you’re looking for. I just can’t get too creative with the spellings of these names as it would make me feel really queasy. :slight_smile:

Girls
[name]Easter[/name] [name]Serenade[/name]
Sublime [name]Journey[/name]
Exodus [name]Morning[/name]
Odyssey [name]Moon[/name]
[name]Crystal[/name] [name]Sunshine[/name]
[name]Meadow[/name] [name]Lark[/name]
[name]Precious[/name] [name]Blyss[/name] (OK, I couldn’t resist adding a “y”)
[name]Kitty[/name] [name]Calico[/name]
[name]Angel[/name] [name]Destinee[/name]
[name]Summer[/name] [name]Rayne[/name]
Goldyn [name]Miracle[/name]
[name]Ocean[/name] [name]Terra[/name]
[name]Princess[/name] [name]Scarlett[/name]
[name]Dimple[/name] [name]Heavyn[/name]
[name]Misty[/name] [name]Autumn[/name]
Dymond Jewyl (please, kill me now!)
[name]Eunique[/name] [name]Story[/name] (I couldn’t help myself, really!)
Starlite [name]Melody[/name] ( I think I’m enjoying this exercise far too much for comfort!)

Boys
[name]Sterling[/name] [name]Forrest[/name]
[name]River[/name] [name]Creed[/name]
[name]Atlas[/name] [name]Rock[/name]
[name]Elmo[/name] [name]Squire[/name]
[name]Indigo[/name] [name]Bleu[/name]
[name]Maverick[/name] [name]Sage[/name]
[name]Noble[/name] [name]Justice[/name]
[name]Jett[/name] [name]Shadow[/name]
[name]Sargent[/name] [name]Dove[/name]
[name]Ocean[/name] [name]Cruz[/name]
[name]Ace[/name] [name]Ranger[/name]
[name]Phoenix[/name] [name]Marvel[/name]
[name]Peerless[/name] [name]Major[/name]
[name]Beau[/name] [name]Arrow[/name]

Oh my goodness! That’s quite a selection to choose from. I particularly “like” [name]Precious[/name] [name]Blyss[/name], that one’s definitely going in, but I think I’m not going to be short of other combinations either. The girls will be very easy to name now. The boys are a bit trickier, but [name]Peerless[/name] [name]Major[/name] definitely made me LOL, so I think it stands a fair chance! :slight_smile:
Thanks so much for risking queasiness for me! I wonder how much I can massacre some of the spellings now…

I was just browing the SSA list for 2010 and came across a ton of terrible names. Payshence, Divyne, Sparkle, Abcde, Dynver, Blessings.
There were even some that were spelled correctly that still made me cringe, like Passion and [name]Candy[/name].

[name]Angelika[/name] [name]Bluebell[/name]
