No black girl's names? That's where the comedy lies.

I've annotated the first fifty. If I've offended you by making fun of your son's name, or your name, that was pretty much the point. I'll try to get the first fifty girls names done too.


1. Aiden
Give me a farking break. Number one is this mess?

2. Jackson
This is a last name.

3. Ethan
Tom Cruise character

4. Liam
Wouldn't be on chart without Neeson

5. Mason
This is a jar, not a first name.

6. Noah
Hi, my son is named after a drunk boat builder whose daughters got him drunk and farked him.

7. Lucas
This is a last name.

8. Jacob
OK, fine.

9. Jayden
what

10. Jack
This is the nickname for John. It's not a name.

11. Logan
Only OK if your son is never, ever a runner.

12. Ryan
Why? Jack Ryan? Ryan Seacrest? Why, people?

13. Caleb
You're not Irish. Why are you trying to be Irish?

14. Benjamin
OK. Tends to be a set up for an "all about" joke, but whatever.

15. William
Number fifteen, we finally get our first fairly traditional name.

16. Michael
And again, traditional name.

17. Alexander
Unless you're expecting extraordinary things from this boy, shy away from this name.

18. Elijah
Will go bald early, cause 42 children to be torn to pieces by bears after they tease him.

19. Matthew
Nice biblical name. Also, along with Michael, a name that has been associated with gay friends more often than any other names on this list. NTTAWWT.

20. Dylan
Last name. If you must do this to your boy, please teach him to speak in poetic mumbles.

21. James
Only works with Tiberius.

22. Owen
Heeeeeeeee....Hawwwwwww!

23. Connor
There should be only one. But it's 23rd.

24. Brayden
Go fark yourselves.

25. Carter
If named after the president, OK. If named after the ER character, meh. If named after the Backstreet Boy, shame.

26. Landon
If named after Alf, good on ya. If named after Michael, please go live in a little house on a prairie.

27. Joshua
I have never known a good person named Joshua. I imagine there are statistically people out there named Joshua who weren't assholes, but I've not met one.

28. Luke
If you must go Biblical, OK. If named after Mr. Perry, go maim yourself.

29. Daniel
I named my son this one. So it's OK.

30. Gabriel
If named after Peter, OK. If named after Mr. Kotter, even more so. If named after the archangel, your son will truly be a hellion by age 3.

31. Nicholas
Son will always be Romanoff.

32. Nathan
Really? A hot dog?

33. Oliver
Make his middle name "Clothesoff" and you have a deal.

34. Henry
Old fashioned, vaguely scary. Might not only marry once.

35. Andrew
Fairly normal name unless you live in South Florida.

36. Gavin
Only if you have a Love Boat fetish and wanted the captain really bad.

37. Cameron
It's a last name, or the name of a Terminatrix. As a last name, it's the name of a seriously douchey fundamentalist. Don't.

38. Eli
Only if you're Jewish. Only.

39. Max
Dog name. Only acceptable if you have another son named Min.

40. Isaac
Again, only if you were really into the Love Boat

41. Evan
Will be odd.

42. Samuel
OK bible name, but if he gets nicknamed Sammy, bad things may occur to him.

43. Grayson
No. Just no. I don't care how much you like the congressman from Central Florida.

44. Tyler
Only if first child was named Tippecanoe

45. Zachary
He'll be called "Zack", which sounds a bit too informal and a touch lacking in respect.

46. Wyatt
If there is any humor in the world, he will be nicknamed "Derp"

47. Joseph
Blah blah dreamcoat.

48. Charlie
OK, if a bit old. People who know about the unicorn videos may get a weirdly high level of amusement from your kid's name.

49. Hunter
Last name. Description. Not a first name

50. David
And fairly normal to round out the fifty.

I knew this guy whose cousin's friend knew a girl who named her twins Lamonjelo and Oranjelo. Get it? Crazy stuff. And there was this other woman I heard about from this guy I know whose friend works in the hospital who knew a doctor who delivered a baby to a woman who named her daughter Chlamydia because she saw it on a poster and thought it sounded pretty. Chlamydia, ha! Next you know someone will be naming their kid Herpes.

No Adam in the Top 50? That's kind of surprising. My boyfriend and I are really boring, milquetoast people so if we ever have kids, they're going to have really traditional, boring Jewish names. We flipped a coin on who got to name the kids, heads it was me, tails it was him....and it came up tails.

Nice list dahmer's love zombie, but I thought it was Lot who had his daughters get him drunk and pork him, not Noah.

Lot seems like a pretty cool name. Sounds like a good name for one of those badass angels who come down to earth and wear trenchcoats and shoot up demons in a post apocalyptic urban landscape while trying to save the last straggling masses of humanity . And who are played by Denzel Washington in the movie which isn't quite as good as the comic book it's based on but a whole hell of a lot better than the crappy video game tie in that was slapped together in the three months before the movie's opening.

...I need sleep.......

My sister's friend's brother knew this guy who was a teacher. So this guy was going through the new class attendance and came across "Le-ah" so he pronounced her name "lee uh". Now here's where it gets wild, the girl corrects him and says her name is pronounced "Le dash ah". Le dash ah! Can you believe it?!?

You take that back, I named my daughter Kaitlyn 11 years ago and she's the most loving polite girl you could ever meet. Of course it wasn't popular back then either. Jen Mary or Heather were overdone at the time just like today where Loquisha or some other abstract name is given to make your kid sound like a special snowflake. There isn't one Mike Kevin Mark or Steven in my daughter's class so it's just a societal thing trying to be different.

No, no you missed the best part, she said "The dash don't be silent!" It's important to retell our racist urban legends the right way.

Nothing To See Here     
A young indian boy sat contemplating how his people were named so he says, "Father, how did we all get names like Running Deer, Ten Bears, Red Sky and such?"
As the boy sat intensely listening his father replied, "As soon as the child is born, the father names the child after the first thing he sees that inspires him and that's how it's done.
So, what makes you ask such strange questions Two Dogs Fu&#ing?"

Too many -dens and last names as first name.

Ha those are bullshiat stories!

Lemme tell you about this gal who works with my brother in Cleveland.

Her electrician's mother-in-law is a nurse in an inner-city hospital. And some black baby-mama was asking about good names and the (white) staff said "How about Female? It's pronounced FEE MAL EEE."

She loved it!

Catholicism farked us up in a lot of ways, but one sensible thing about it is good solid traditional names. Stick to the apostles and better known saints. Don't be one of those jerkoffs with a kid named Brayden/Jayden/Quayden.
