Wait a minute, not so fast. This is a list we hear every year. It's nice, but boring. What about the rejects, the worst baby names that have been cast down on newborns as a possible lifelong curse? I'm here to help, because I have discovered those names.

Come on now. If you are a parent now - it's time to start putting the welfare of your child ahead of your own. This is a good place to start as Ranker.com has come up with the worst baby girl names and the worst baby boy names.
