Complaining about being named Jeremy? There are some names in history which can easily top that in quirkiness, weirdness, or downright inappropriate-ness (is that even a word?). Anyway, we’ve compiled this list of historical names, celebrities, people-turn-internet-memes, and just silly sounding names from public records.

Before we start, a small disclaimer – we strongly believe that all names are created equal and in no way do we intend to mock or make fun of any real person in this list. However, we do feel thoroughly entertained after putting together this list and want to share this feeling with our readers.

Names are one of our most important attributes – they can shape our characters, influence traits, and are something that we carry throughout our whole lives. Having a unique name can become challenging due to social norms and our surrounding society – funny names can become a subject of mockery at school and beyond. That’s why it’s very important to research names, their origins, meanings, and translations to other languages before committing to name your children. Luckily, if worse comes to worst, names can be changed.

At Names and Facts, we celebrate names, their variety and diversity. Having a unique name is a blessing and a gift – it just requires a little bit of research. We hope that you have enjoyed this list as much as we did and now think of names a bit differently.
