List Rules Vote up the most obnoxious baby boy names that parents are overdoing in 2016.

Put your hands together for the worst popular baby names for boys in 2016! Come on, take a bow! This list wouldn't be possible without parents like you or someone you know.

Okay, stop clapping! What are you thinking?? King? Prince? Is your child royalty? Even Prince, who was much more princely than your kid, had the good sense to ask to be called something else after a while. Bentley is a car! Leonardo is a ninja turtle. Rhett isn't anything - it's just a syllable. And Jayden, Brayden, and Zayden? Come on.

If you see a name you're considering in the following list of terrible popular baby names, please, do your kid a mitzvah and rethink it. Remember, it doesn't take courage or creativity to name your kid something weird. It just takes sadism.
