Many parents spend a lot of time trying to pick the perfect baby name for their son or daughter. They pour over baby name books and baby name lists. Yet, they don’t always anticipate the problems a child might encounter later in life due to their name.

Sometimes, the name itself becomes a sort of joke or sounds like something that isn’t so nice. Sometimes, the name is confusing to spell or pronounce. Sometimes the name causes a lot of people to ask the same questions over and over again.

Some people probably can’t relate to what it’s like to have an annoying name, but many, many people can. You might be surprised what some people find annoying about their names, and often, it’s not the name itself that’s annoying but the way people react to the name.
