What is the worst possible name to call a child?

I think one of the worst is any variation of STUPID: dumb, retarded, moron, idiot, et al.

What do you think?

Hennessy or any liquor variety. I don't think car names are all that cute either. I knew a kid named Shampoo. Really, I did. It was spelled differently though.

If you have one of these names, I do not think less of you, but I think your parents had some wicked humor.

Oh, I think I wasn't clear, I meant "calling names", in a pejorative sense.

That said, why not also make this thread about stupid kid names?!

And I completely agree, some of the names are just ridiculous, for God's sake, Shampoo? Seriously? Why would you name anyone a word that ended in "poo" when they have to grow up with other kids who will use that to their advantage to tease?

I remember a comedienne, Lisa Lampinelli, ("the queen of mean"), did a hilarious stand-up bit about the laughable names they give kids & she listed a bunch of them, joking how they'll never get jobs with those names. But the funny part was when she ran down a list of them & ended with ones she made up, but you didn't know that because they fit right in. The one that killed me was a girls' name, "Placenta"!

I would have to agree with you. Making a child feel like they're less of a person or less intelligent is extremely low. I have to get after my husband because he's called the kids stupid and retarded before. Really upsets me! It's our job to teach them, if they aren't catching on to something it's our job to help and encourage them, not put them down!

Saying anything to a child that lowers their self-esteem, is the worst. Whether it be their intelligence, looks, preferences (that can range from reading books to playing with dolls), or something I missed.

The ultimate worst and stupidest thing you could say to a child, "I/Your parents, never loved you, and you were a mistake." Something that I will NEVER say.

Bitch or whore if it's a female...I saw a child who was called that on a regular basis and the pain in her eyes was horrible to witness.

Any derogatory comment made at a child is unacceptable (though I have caught myself a few times). Though comments pointed at an action or statement are different.

Unacceptable would be "Your an idiot, I can't believe you did that."

Acceptable "That was a stupid thing to do, lets talk about what could have went wrong."

The absolute worst thing though, in my opinion, was said to my Nephew by his sperm donor "I've done everything I can not to know you, stop wasting your time trying to know me."

I did like the name "Subpoena" - ha! I like her roast of Gene Simmons much better. It's brutal!

As for the original question, calling a child "hopeless" sounds like the worst thing to say, because it means they'll never change, which is a load of crap!

As for the worst actual names, it is funny to think that a name can sound lyrical and gorgeous in one language/culture, and awful in another. I'd like to move some place with a Mike or a Jenny whose name means "diarrhea" in that language, hahah!

Any name that is designed to, or by its definition, hurt, insult, or put down, is an awful name. I do not believe in name-calling, except by their given names.

(This is a really depressing thread. )

I've heard of a real child being named "hashtag" I think last year.
^first thing I thought of because I thought this was about real names and not insults.

When I read your post I thought "unwanted" or "a mistake" It's one thing for someone to tell you that you're stupid but it's another to say that you're complete accident and you were/will never be loved and accepted

I agree this is bad. My son calls my baby which is only 2 yrs old this and I have to jump on him all the time for it. I have never called any of my kids this or any other word along these lines. I may have swore and I regret that now because my 2 yr old has picked up on one of the words now and says it all the time.

Sorry about the depressing topic, but it came to me & then when Mwar mentioned the funny names, I thought maybe we'd get more of those. But, it is nice to see that the generations behind the one I grew up in, have a better sensitivity to this. I carry even the most inadvertently called names around with me. "You Goddamned Dummy!" is one of them!

@Stormy, I cannot imagine having heard what you did, (& I'm sure, much worse), on a regular basis! I remember what you said in the invisibility thread, that you'd watch her when she wasn't performing. I'm sorry, but she sounds like a handful, and not in a good way. I give you a lot of credit for being so nice & normal.

GONE! GONE!
For insults? Anything that makes the kid feel like you no longer consider them theirs, or "stupid" or "worthless." No one should say that to a kid.
For bad first names? Well, my friends are naming their baby the worst name ever. I can't post it because I'm scared they'll Google it and find me making fun of it. D:

^This is so true. Those things stick with a kid and can really affect their feelings of self-worth. It breaks my heart when I hear parents calling their children things like "stupid" or "ugly"

For names: Anything you're basing off of current obsessions (Eg: popular books, films, shows, etc).

Half of the time the fad wears out for the parent and the poor kid gets stuck with a silly sounding name.

There's a lot of Renesme's and Katniss's out there who are going to resent their parents horrible planning skills. -_-

For insults: Anything that is cruel or something that makes the child feel worthless. Eg: You're an idiot/you're stupid or any variant of that. I also think it's cruel when parents imply their child is already failure. For example, telling a child they're only going to amount to flipping burgers or that they'll always be a loser.

My dad called me all kinds of names - dumbass, idiot, stupid, bitch, brat, "nothing special," loser, acolyte, shithead, asshole...so any of those, really.

My boyfriend said he had a childhood friend whose dad called him "little shit". I literally cringed when I was told this. Apparently, the dad wasn't serious, but I still don't think this is even remotely ok. My father always called me a bitch or slut, and I have not forgiven him for it. Things like that really can stick with a person.

Worthless is as bad a name as I can think of.
