I've got a confession to make. Theres a huge part of me that loves girls names, more than boys! So it's taken me awhile to get onto task to do the boys awards after doing the girls (which took a long time to do, i'll tell you!)
So, i'd like to welcome you to:
The Mini Terrible Boys Names awards 2006
Random Y's are when the letter "y" is randomly inserted in place of another vowel. This is very popular in the realm of of girls names. But this also happens in boys names, too.
which is a little strange because it makes the name look a lot more feminine!
Second category: Weird incomprehensible spellings:

Rayan (supposed to be Ryan)
Third category: Trying to make it 'unique'.
This is similar to the second category, although the names are often still recognizable, but just strangely spelled, often to try and achieve uniqueness.

Fifth category: Bad names
Names which are just stupid.
Amari/ Jamari/ Kamari (kind of pretty names, but for a boy??)
Noe (pronounced: No-ee. It sounds like what a Mom says to their little child, "Noey, Thomas, don't touch that, Noeys"
Willie. (Oh, god...)
Sincere. (What's he going to be called for short? Sin?)
Hamza. (Not only a weird name, Nickname? Ham? It means "foul smell". Hm..)
Prince (speaks for itself)
