List Rules Vote up the best baby names in the Bates family, considering all combinations of first names, middle names, and nicknames.

Move over, Duggar family. There's a new family with 19 kids in town! The Up TV series Bringing Up Bates follows Gil, Kelly Jo, and their brood as they navigate life, love, and bi-monthly birthday parties. This is a list of all of the Bringing Up Bates family names, ranked best to worst, including the ages of each parent, kid, or grandchild. Which names are your favorites?

As with any group of people, the Bates family has both good and bad names. The regular, normal names in this family include Katie and Erin, Ellie and Alyssa. The terrible names are ones like Jeb, Judson, Carlin, Trace, and Addallee. There is also a Warden. There are two great Williams in the family, but unfortunately, one goes by Lawson and the other by Gil. Also, there is a good strong Charles, but instead, the family calls him Carson. 

What are the best Bates family names? Vote up the ones that are not outright child abuse, and vote down the ones that have you raising eyebrows. Don't forget that these children's middle names range from Jane to Ezekiel, Grace to Justice to Courage.
