Bogan Baby Names (UPDATED!)

List updated 5/1/11!

It’s been decided that the sheer volume of offensively named offspring necessitates its own dedicated page. So here it is. Please submit your suggestions! The original blog entry about the bogan’s love of ridiculous child names can be found here.

Caution: The next person to recount “Le-a” or “Abcde” as a bogan baby name will be shot.

my daughters name is tahnee she is 30 yrs old now .her name comes from American indian so if this is a bogan list tell all the American Indians they are bogans.these sites are put up so people get a kick out of them …….theres names on there that are someones mother ? would you call your mother a bogan? or your mates?……..think about it ….put your brain into gear before you move your mouth………..scott is a common name

Greyeyes

I’m Native American, and have no idea what “tahnee” is about. Sounds like some deep bullshit, and anyhow, what connection do you have with Native Americans? Any? The fact you don’t but went for a pretend Native name is about as Bogan as it gets.

2 09 2013
critto

really comon.. what about this poor kid ‘Tequila-Sunrise’ im sure this wasnt a American Indian… more like a last minute decision, where they couldn’t think of anything and just picked the name of their last drink… which they prob had while giving birth! HA

3 09 2013
Uncle John

If you are an American, that’s OK. If not, you are a bogan. Of what possible cultural relevance is giving an Australian child a native American Indian name? Admit it, You ARE a bogan. Sadly Tahnee (yes with a capital T) may become a bogan too. I have a nephew, named after a 60s sitcom character who has named his kids after a street his wife used to live in and an American State. I am sure that all those bogans out there who name their kids after Ameican presidents, (Taylor, Madison, Jackson etc) have no idea that they are American presidents. As stated on the home page, self-awareness is not a bogan characteristic. Embrace the fact that you are a bogan, sip a bundy and coke and just get over it,

10 05 2014
Marcus Cicero

So “peter kelly” now that it’s been proven that your daughters name has no connection at all to Native American culture whatsoever do you feel like a massive wanker/idiot/ignoramus ( select as applicable ) & do you feel that you have given your child an adequate start in life by saddling her with another monstrous name. Reflect upon that & if by some miracle she breaks free from the shackles of her bogan family she will surely change her name to something normal.

15 05 2014
max

I think Greyeyes has done a fine job of discrediting you, it is common knowledge that bogans try to give exotice names to their spawn and make a complete hash of it, face it, your a bogan, the very fact your defending bogan women who mispell their kids names confirms your place in the bogan world. bogan bogan bogan!

20 05 2014
Mark

Oh come on now Max, bagging bogans is just a bit of fun but honestly, if you are going to be so stridently boorish about it you should at least disguise your own bogan-ness by using correct spelling and punctuation!

Bit of public parenting going on in Bunnings tonight. Mum’s death-squeal filled the entire hectare of store: ‘D’Artagnan! D’Artagnan! Where the f*ck are you ya little c*nt! Get ‘ere, now. D’Artagnan’. I felt like David Attenborough, creeping down the aisle, looking for the tell-tale tramp stamp. I was not disappointed.

Poor kid at the park called Coda. “As in music?”, I asked in bewilderment. Well, yes – but mother bogan just liked the sound of it. Just as well she didn’t like the sound of, say, gangrene. Or moron.
And then there’s Kviiilin, evidently a real name – and pronounced Caitlyn, in case you’re wondering. Think about it….

Hi Like,
That is realy Kool !!
Maybe she could have called the “spawn”; “Ihaveastupidmum” pronunced “Ivastumunn” ? ? ?
Or Muy mum is a dum ass?

Well done Luke. That second one is mildly clever, although, on the basis that a fair dinkum bogan would never be bright enough to work something like that out, I strongly suspect that you have come up with it, whether it be your own construction or the result of a group effort!

6 07 2013

Cross my heart I didn’t invent that, though I’d have been quite pleased with myself. A friend told me that a doctor had a patient named Kviiilin. Imagine explaining that all your life.

9 07 2013
Mark Henry

I’ll accept you explanation Luke, although it does sound a bit “urban myth-ish” if I may say so. Similar to a workmate of mine who insisted that a friend of his brother dated a girl named Theresa Green!

I was at Pimlico High School in Townsville in the mid to late 70′s with a girl named Theresa Green. She was in my class for 2 years & a boy a few years older than me was Richard Head. If you called him Dick chances are he would have punched you. Better yet my nephew was living with someone called Cheryl Moana Maree for a few years. Parents in NQ are a cruel bunch.

12 07 2013
Tori

I can vouch for the unfortunate name of Kviiilin (yes, “Catlin”). I had a paediatric patient come in a few months ago with the name and I was flabbergasted when I heard the correct pronunciation!

Yeah so what if I call my mother a bogan. Her name is Kristal she is way old school.
She drinks Malibu & diet coke & bangs Peter Jackson super milds.
She’s heaps classy & that, still fits into her black shiny Smile Jeans she got when we was livin in Christies Beach and she was goin out wiv Mick the President of the Hells Angels in South Aussie

My ex-high school music teacher has a cake-making business which she manages at home and her facebook page showcasing all her work for children’s parties is a treasure trove of names. So far, we have:

Birthday cookies for ‘Aydin’
Bumblebee cookies for ‘Ayman’
A big pink cake for ‘Ariyanah’
Cookies for ‘Alara’, which are similar to the ones for ‘Asya’
Train shaped cookies for ‘Kaysan’, as well as a three-tiered, 30kg cake topped with a blue train

The worst part? All of those sweet treats are for the birthday boy/girl’s FIRST birthday. Her clientele’s poor choice of baby’s names aside, my teacher makes amazing cakes….

8 07 2013
Pooch

I think you will find that names like Aydin, Asya and Alara are actually legitimate Turkish names.

9 07 2013
Mark Henry

A point that I have made previously; beware of showing your own ethnocentricity and bigotry by labelling as “bogan” names that are simply of a different cultural heritage rather than “made up”.

10 07 2013
beeb

Ayşe is very Turkish but I’ve not encountered Asya over there.

11 06 2013
beeb

Aydin is a very normal, common boys name inTurkey.
The kid was quite likely a Turk.

Ryda, Havok, Axel, Pippa

12 06 2013
Kate

Pippa isn’t too bad. It’s been a nickname for Phillipa forever.

13 06 2013
Louise Moran

Axel is also a common European name (only butchered by Axl Rose). But Havok is particularly revolting. I’m only glad they didn’t start with “Wreaking”, although any mis-spelling of THAT word would be “Reeking Havok”…..

15 06 2013
jenerators

and when baby Havok cries, the parents are unlikely to be quoting Shakespeare and saying “Cry Havoc! and let loose the dogs of war!”

10 07 2013
Big Tone

Let ‘slip’ the dogs of war – if you are going to quote him…..

I have a little boy next door to me named Havek, if they had another boy the dad wanted to name him Kaos. Of course he did!

13 06 2013
Jane

If you have no cultural references from history, the arts and literature etc some names eg Pippa, Axel, Aymen (popular name in the Middle East) etc etc and many on this site may sound made up therefore bogan.

16 06 2013
David Black

Once at the Food Hall at Rockhampton Shopping Fair, a bogan mother was having trouble with her son’s behaviour and she was screaming “Jayden! Jayden!”
When that didn’t work, she yelled at her daughter to “Stop him, Mikalya!”

8 07 2013
Pooch

Ahh Jayden….a bogan favourite.

16 06 2013

A girl I went to school with has a Jada (girl) and Marlowe (boy). Clearly they were going for literary cachet with the latter, and plain old Christopher would never suffice.

It could be worse, I suppose, but jamming it up against Will Smith’s swinging Scientologist droid-wife makes for a pretty bumpy ride.

US Marine, named for his father. I swear by god, I’m not kidding.

26 06 2013

Brax or Braxton – thanks primarily to the juggernaut that is “Home and Away”. I suspect the bogan is blissfully unaware that they actually have named their bogan offspring – rather ironically – after what is a medical term associated with pregnancy………

11 07 2013

The medical term Braxton Hicks was named for Dr Braxton Hicks in 1872

Xzethan Bobby-Star. And his younger sibling Xzander. I kid you not. Sunshine Coast, Qld. I know their Aunt.

And the girl I met who wanted to name her daughter Chandelier because it sounded pretty, but thankfully listened to her (also bogan) mother who informed her it was a light fixture… “Oh, I guess I shouldn’t then. She’ll probably get teased hey?” Duh. Y’think?!

Some parents can be so cruel. When we chose our childrens names we chose name that would fit both the adult and child. I didn’t see Montaya. Friends of my son chose this name for their bub.

Why is the name Hudson a bogan name?

19 07 2013

Look at what happened to Rock Hudson

29 07 2013

Because Hudson is a surname, and surnames as first names are usually bogan.

if you have to ask, you are probably a bogan.

Mrs C

I honestly don’t think the parents think long term when naming their baby something ‘out there’. Kids are by nature horrible to one another & a peculiar name is just the start of teasing/bullying. My favourite bogan name came via a story I heard on the radio a few years ago on Amanada Keller’s show about a couple who’d just given birth & the midwife asked for the baby girl’s name.
‘ Caros-o-nay’ came the reply. When asked where that had come from the mother proudly said they’d been in Bunnings & seen it there & liked it. The midwife asked for her to spell it … K e r o s e n e!!!! I still laugh about it now.

Hospitals are treasure troves for all the bogan name gems out there. Some of my recent favourites are:
Zeelandia
Shakira-Lateesha (yes, it was hyphonated)
Shirazz
Holden
…and his sibling
Vodkaa (seriously)

And my personal favourite, Uknique. Pronounced, yep you guessed it, “Unique”. When conversationally asked about her child’s name, the (teenage) mother explained she really liked the silent ‘k’ to make the name more unique!

Got this sent to me yesterday. The person who named their baby girl “Sanity” clearly has a mental disorder. What will the person who named their baby girl “Thinn” call the next few spawn? Thinner? Thinnest? What if the next one is Phat, which didn’t make the list??

River Anaya is my friends babies name. I have a niece called skylah from my sister and rogue from my brother. My husbands brothers kids are jason raine, freedom lee, and andre james. I think most of these names are uniqe and pretty creative

Your spelling of “unique” is also unique – must run in the family.

Just looking at the top baby names from 2012.
Surnames as first names (e.g. Cooper) as so common now as to barely qualify as bogan.
There are a few nicknames-as-proper-names, like Charlie and Archie. Does Jack count?

The only definitively Bogan boy name in the top 50 was Jaxon.
Most bogan top-50 girl name in Australia for 2012 would be Savannah, but at least they spell it properly. :)

Some of the names on your list are actually old, classic names. Achilles comes from Greek mythology, Ashleigh/Ashlee is from old English, Bastien has been known as a European variant of Bastian for hundreds of years, Trinity had religious significance long before The Matrix, just to mention a few. It appears that many of these ‘bogan’ names are simply names that you don’t happen to like.

Melody Weckel

Very true and a couple are names that are foreign too, like Elodie is actually French, I wouldn’t of known except for French class..and this isn’t right because it doesn’t have the proper apostrophe but still..I get what someone could say about someone who has no French in them or anything going with that..and also Noamie, is not French because the french spelling is Noemie..plus an apostrophe there are definitely a lot of ignorant people out there though

Abercrombie (Scottish boy’s name – sort of famous composer is named this)
Aron (Scandinavian spelling of biblical boy’s name Aaron)
Bastien (French, Scandinavian boy’s name – variant of Bastian)

Boadicea (Celtic girl’s name – this is the Latinised form)

Charmain (English boy’s name – usually spelled with an ‘e’ at the end)
Cloe (Spanish spelling of Chloe)
Eren (Turkish boy’s name – means saint)
Elektra (Greek girl’s name – from mythology)
Hani (Arabic boy’s name – means happy)
Hathor (Kemetic i.e. Old Egyptian girl’s name – from mythology)
Katelyn (Irish girl’s name – Anglisised form of Caitlín)

Kory (Anglisised form of Scandinavian boy’s name Kåre – means curly-haired)
Lavena (Romanian and anglisised form of Roman girl’s name Lavinia – from mythology)

Mathilda (Scandinavian spelling of old pan-Germanic girl’s name Matilda – means battle strength)
Mercedes (Spanish girl’s name from Christian Virgin Mary title ‘Maria de las mercedes’ i.e. Mary of mercies)
Mikaela (Scandinavian girl’s name from hebrew/biblical boy’s name Mikha’el – pron. mee-ka-EH-la – means who is like god)
Milan (Slavic/East-European boy’s name – pron. MEEL-lan)

- these are only the names I happen to *know* (did you say name nerd…?), and I’m not even halfway through the alphabet…

Thanks Lin, how right you are! Please remember that a lot of people need to have someone to point at and laugh, and in this forum there are many fingers pointed back at the haters who are unable to deal with anything out of their own range of normal. They are unable to even use google before firing off a comment on a name. The intolerant consider themselves better than the humble Bogan, but become more laugh-worthy than their intended target!
History has taught us many things and all names in history had a first use somewhere. Some last and others are like desert flowers, blooming for but a day. Enjoy the colours of the display!

Fantastic. My four-year-old grand daughter, Mathilda, has been immersed in Norse and other myths. When she attended a Viking display, she was sad the defeated combatant didin’t really die, ‘cos then she would have seen the Valkyries. This kid is battle ready.

Don’t forget those inspired by bogans’ favourite shows/movies!
My personal favourite is ‘Khaleesi’, from Game of Thrones, which, incidentally, isn’t even the character’s name, but rather her title. Good bogans don’t worry about distinctions like that.

I guess we are being mean for picking on some of these names but I can always remember my sister when she heard these sorts of names “the poor child will spend it’s whole life spelling that!” My sister was a teacher so she came across odd names a lot.

my girlfriend’s daughter just had a boy; they named him ‘Ryder’..or is it ‘Rider’?..or perhaps ‘Rhyda’..or..anyway I was too DISGUSTED (that’s the only word for it) to inquire any further,and,sadly,with this emotion gnawing at me, found great difficult as a result in engaging in any of the fawning and coo-ing expected of me as an,albeit unmarried, ‘satellite’ uncle..it’s so much more horrible when it happens to you..their stupid self-indulgence in opting for this ghastly cockatrice of a name means they have tossed away any chance of maintaining a cultural and familial connection with their past..

So, what constitutes a non-bogan name then? There would be far too many John’s and Mary’s around if people didn’t invent new names or take them from other cultures. Since you are not aware of this, I must assume that you are all in fact, bogans.

There are some terribad names out there though, given.

I was working in a community in remote Northern Territory and 7/50 babies on the vaccination list on the wall in the medical centre were called “James Hetfield {Surname}” BEAT THAT!

7 02 2014
O hai

You don’t need an apostrophe to form a plural. You can have one John or lots of Johns, and one Mary or lots of Marys. Strange but true.

I think the detectives at TBL are just on the lookout for pretension by the bogan demographic. As you ably demonstrated yourself, James is not a bogan name by itself; James Hetfield Smith, an absolute bogan bonanza. Boganza.

chromedog (@chrome_dog)

I have a friend with nieces, Summa,Rain and Krystal Breeze.
Yes, their mother was a hippy and lives in the GC hinterland.

Siobhan is a perfectly cromulent Scots or Irish girls name. Misspellings of other names happen with the acting crowd because of union rules (only once instance of a given name on their books – so you get Stephanie, Stepfanie, Steffany, etc). The rest is usually due to bad educational standards and an attempt at phonetic spelling (although they probably spell that with an ‘f’ too).

Marley (as in Bob Marley). This name is inflicted upon girls (mainly), however some boys have to go through life with this too; it sounds more appropriate for a dog or cat. I can’t believe Marley hasn’t already made this list! Clearly an oversight.

Some people just don’t take the time to think about the “school yard impact” when naming their babies.

I will assume that the parents named their beautiful baby girl Jennifer without a second thought as to how contracting this to Jenny and combining it with the family name would then sound; just like naming your baby boy Richard when your family name is Head.

Even combinations of initials can cause problems for a child in the school yard, particularly if classmates become aware of second given names.

But that is not the main issue of this forum. Let us continue to inflate our own egos by denigrating others who are lesser beings, i.e. bogans.

Me again, and I will apologise in advance for not getting completely back on track. It took the exchange of three emails with this person before I noticed an amusing (rather than bogan) effect of name / initial combinations.

In an op shop the week before summer holidays finished, I found myself surrounded by a battallion of screeching bogan spawn. They were genuinely manic on processed food and cokes and running up and down the aisles screaming and hollering infuriatingly.
As I did my utmost to zone out the intolerable little ferals, and focus on my underwear hunting, I realised I was situated uncomfortably near to the women who had unleashed these horrors into the world. Three generations of the species, as Grandma was present,were there, offering an irresistible research opportunity. I audibly gasped! I stifled a guffaw. They were just across the miscellaneous sundries display. These women were old school rural bogan. Classical bogan. Probably Lorelle, Janelle and Chantelle. I was in the presence of the real thing.
Almost imperceptibly, just beneath consciousness, something shifted, I knew I was in for something out of this world, a rare treat… A guttural roar began…
“Kayleigh, Tyson, Callum, Kaden, Jaden, Bryce and Charlotte, where are ya? Get over here, you’re comin’ out to the car with me.”
“Mum!!! I’m goin’ to wait in the car, I’m fuckin’ over this screamin’”.
I nearly ran up to this tracksuited bruiser and hugged her. Not only for removing the irritation, but for the sheer unscripted brilliance of the boganity reflected in those glorious names, topped by the regal “and Charlotte”!
Truly wonderful comedy, it made me laugh plenty then, and I still get a good chuckle remembering it now!

I love bogan spotting, there are several different species of Bogan to look out for, each with their own …. qualities. I was at a dinner buffet at Surfer’s Paradise a few years ago and ran into a Bogan father trying to coordinate his 3 kids at the ice cream station. As expected, they misbehaved and he yelled at them “Britney, Ashton, Mariah – get over here!’ 3 celebrity names in one go – priceless!

Thankfully, it’s only a middle name, but I saw a news story online today.
A Port Macquarie couple decided that travel insurance coverage for pregnancy was for other people to worry about, went to Fiji…and baby was born.

But the baby’s middle name is Cazna – which is Anzac spelled backwards.
I thought the whole Nevaeh thing was bad, but what would I know.

11 06 2014

This list is foolish and arbitrary. Perhaps a list BY an ignorant bogan seeking to feel above those around him or her? For example, how is Taliesin a bogan name? It’s rare. It’s the name made famous by a 14th century Welsh poet. It’s been used in Arthurian mythology and to name an example of exotic architecture. I’ve met two in my life time, one a post graduate, intellectual and political activist, the other I didn’t get to know. Thanks for trying to share your insider knowledge relating to bogans, but being a bogan yourself it’s no surprise you got it wrong :P

If you have the time to personally research every item in a list thousands of items long, composed of the suggestions of others, which is one page on a site with many hundreds of pages, then you have a less eventful life than me. But thanks for the feedback. TBL
