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.

now they are named after businesses.

You just don’t get it, do you Jesse.

But with a classic bogan name like Jesse, I don’t suppose you would.

Shocked to see the wonderful, powerful Welsh name Taliesin included here – you should remove it. I only know one Taliesin and he and his family is as far from bogan as you can get

6 01 2012
BeautifulSerenity

My son’s name is Taliesin too and no one I know would ever call my family “bogan”. Such a pity people have so little knowledge of history nowadays.

For Port Macquarie mum Megan Murray and her kids Kayla, 12, and India, 3, takeaway food is a “rare treat”.

The above was taken from a news article about Macdonalds losing it’s hear tick accreditation – surprise surprise. Even less of a surprise was the name given by the bogan mum patron to her sprogs.

24 10 2011

Megan, Kayla and India are pretty names. Why would you want to single these people out to attack??

Definition of a bogan: someone who hasn’t figured out that the possessive form of “it” is “its” and therefore inserts a bog(an)us apostrophe. Dur….

There are some gems on the Baby Bunting page on facebook.
Baby Bunting
Creative vs. traditional spelling for names… How did you choose your baby’s name and did anyone give you flak for opting for non-traditional spelling?
There are 90 posts but I have pulled a few gems out

i named my eldest boy jaak and its not about what other people think go with what you want :-)

I wanted to name my son Asher :) We ended up with Rhiley because I legitimately thought thats how it was spelled lol. Now I love it and the regular spelling (Riley) looks boring.

I have a Joshuah, Braidon, Lachlan and Ryleigh. We put the h on the end of Joshuah because a friend named her boy the same as me but her bubs was born first I thought Im not changing my name. Braidon my sister actually spelt it that way and we liked it, Lachlan well thats the normal way and Ryleigh we wanted the leigh in it the same as his dad Ashleigh. Im Rachel and Im always spelling my name to ppl

I have 2 girls- ayrli Montoya and dekohda saige.. Never copped flack.. If anything, compliments! I love different spelling and unusual/unique names!

one of my daughters name is Shinayde instead of the traditional way of Sinead. her dad liked the name but wanted to spell it that way

My daughters name is Emmah I still don’t no why we put a h on the end we just and it made it a stronger name

Why are you so interested in all these peoples children’s names, Jesse?

14 11 2011

Beacause people taking the piss out of other people’s naming should put up or shut up. If you’re going to ridicule others, you should hold your own naming choices up for scrutiny.

Louise,
Only way to make amends would be to call a daughter Emmaville ?

29 09 2011

Sadly, if they had had a daughter I’m sure it would merely have meant a frenzied hunt for US destination names that would suit a girl. I ike your thought though James Hunter :p

Get out! Steve is the most embarrassing name on the planet. Have you read the chapter about your name in Pinker’s book??

2 11 2011
Jarrod

The name Jesse isn’t?? Very honourable to be named after a criminal!! Jesse is common in high density bogan areas such as Tin Can Bay and Gympie QLD

11 11 2011
Jesse

It’s a boring old Hebrew name. I’m not proud of it because it’s kinda girly sounding for a bloke. I am not named after a criminal. Jesse was the father of King David!

21 12 2011

Most of the men called Jesse that i have encountered have the middle name James. is that yours too? If so, well yes, I agree, that’s also a good bible name.

I knew a lady called Cheri, who named her baby Juniper … *cringe*

29 09 2011
Haz

Cheri of course being a misspelling (on purpose) of Cherry ,the fruit.

29 09 2011
jenerators

and here I thought “Cheri” was French for “dear” or “dearest” which is a rather nice name (not that I’d ever bless a daughter with it!)

31 10 2011
Jesse

Cheri is a French girls’ name that means ‘cherished’. It is also the title of one of Colette’s novels.

To me ‘Haz’ is dubious but ‘Cheri’ is gorgeous

31 10 2011
James Hunter

Jesse,
I think I may have posted this little gem else where but!
A work associate of mine used to (in a previous life) run a general store/caravan park in the general vacinity of Katherine NT.
One of the Indigines Family names was Mota.
The kids were named, Diesel, Outboard,Electric and something else that I cant recall.
His first encounter with them was when they came in one after the othewr to cash Centerlink cheques. He thought they were duds and that they were having a lend of him.
Just gos to show fact is stranger then fiction.
“Is that Wierd or what?”

31 10 2011

I heard the same story 25 years ago, only it was about a Yugoslav family!! Your mate is taking th episs. This story is an urban myth.

Reading this tells me that there is a hierarchy to Bogan names. Try this on for size.

Bronze Bogan, If someone tells you “I just like the name, ” they are a bogan.
Silver Bogan, Using a nickname as a first name or someone else’s surname as a first name ie Jake instead of Jacob, Brayden, the list goes on.
Gold Bogan, Named after a TV character or personality, ie Kylie or Jason, an American President or State; ie Jackson, Lincoln, Madison, Montana or Indiana. (A Gold Bogan with a star is awarded if you don’t know it is an American name.)
Platinum Bogan, Mis-spelling a name, ie Indyanna, Kenadie or Makayla.
Diamond Bogan, A combination of any or all of the above, or named after a street you used to live in.

I include the last one because my nephew and his wife who both have bogan names called their first child after a street she used to live in because she, who has an Irish surname as a first name, liked the name. He, named after a character in a 60s TV show went along with it. All their bogan facebook friends think it’s wonderful. I haven’t used the names because I am still related to them.

“Brax”.

4 10 2011
jenerators

I’m pretty sure I read a novel once where the villain’s name was Brax… and that it was short for “Abraxas” which was implied to be another name for the devil/satan. Can anyone here remember the name of the book?

31 10 2011
Jesse

Nope: This is a religious name, common to Jews, Christians and Pagans. I don’t know why you would want to isolate it for ridicule.

3 10 2011
Catherine

I am a teacher and have been blessed with students such as Tyrn (pronounced Tyron) and his cousin Jytte (pronounced Jite as in shite, not jitty as in shitty). There has been Cloe, Jak, and pretty much a whole range of Taya, Taylaa, Temeika, Tenieka, Tameeka etc etc. Would rather not disclose where I am working right now!

31 10 2011
Jesse

Just wondering: Do you feel cheated, having been given such a generic name as Catherine? Are you secretly jealous of your students’ names?

1 11 2011

Troll fail.

Also, do you feel cheated to have a rather common unisex name, Jesse?

Apparently they let the other 2 kids (Arlo & Talon) give little Poet her middle name. Which is nice.

10 10 2011

Clarrsy.

Talon – named after hardware?

2 11 2011
antqueen

Read in the papers that apparently the kids called the new offspring ‘Poppin’ cos she was always ‘poppin’ around in mummy’s stomach’. Lovely how the middle name is worse than the first name so the poor kid has no backup name in life.

loads of amusing names — the theme appears to be anything that is misspelt, (whether either intentionally or not);
I think you can pretty much include any name that starts with SH,
and most names of cities and/or footy teams are quite popular for bogans, eg. Corio, Coll, Carlton, Brook, Nyah, Heath, Sydney, Paris, Perth, Adele, Tyer, etc.

I filled out an incident report for a naughty high school kid on a more serious offence (he was a notorious little shit) and it was the first time I found out his name. It was Brodyn Zai. I then met the father to discuss the incident. Every second word from this parent was f**k and he endlessly made the excuse that Brodyn had ADHD so that made him “dumber” than the other kids. The father also said we picked on him because he was short and fat, all in front of the sobbing Brodyn.

Send these uneducated bogan parents back to primary and don’t let them leave until they have a proper grasp of the English language and social decency.

Keep the refugees. Export the bogans.

It’s great that you work at a school. It means that whatever you have identified are the obstacles facing Brodyn, you can help him overcome them.

Because you are such an advocate of social dencency, you are just the person for the job.

Was in Toowoomba last year (at a food court of all things – desperation beckoned) and heard a young mother sooth her crying baby named CAPACITY. what can I say… Booootiful!

22 10 2011
Jesse

I guess you meant soothe?

I find the name Capacity rather pretty. It reminds me of the 17th Century British name ‘Capability’. There is a famous landscape architect called Capability Brown.

But I also realise that if you want to construct an argument that is narrow-minded and judgemental, you probably don’t care much for historical examples.

To me, the person who names their child ‘Capacity’ is far less likely to be a bogan (assuming that their is such a thing) than the person who condemns such a name because the former person is alive to the history and poetry of naming while the latter is so busy sneering that she or he doesn’t know the difference between a beautiful name and an ugly one.

someone who gives their kid a name like ‘capacity’ that is actually a word rather than a name hasn’t really thought about the implications of giving their kid a ridiculous name. you may think it judgemental, but really, naming a kid capacity? they’re going to get mocked mercilessly. the parents are doing the kid a disservice.

@W.
you’ve highlighted a key point in that example — white trash / bogans / chavs will consider any means to buy their new wheels or home theatre, including selling their children, in any manner that they can get away with it, (eg. trading babies on ebay, tweens traded at swinger parties, young girls surgically altered to win beauty pageants).

Elektra is a name from Greek mythology (It’s the title of a play by Sophocles) and Mercedes is a beautiful Spanish girls’ names. Only a bogan wouldn’t know this!

Who is responsible for this ridiculous list?

24 10 2011
antqueen

Mercedes is also the brand name of a luxury German car. I think the parents who gave their child that name are not culturally aware enough to know that it is also ‘a beautiful Spanish girls’ name’. If they wanted to give their child a Spanish name the odds of the kid ending up being called Santana or Zorro are a lot higher. Also, have you met this beautiful filly?

26 10 2011

Aha, so it’s not the name you object to but the thought that the parents arrived at it for reasons that you believe inferior or for reasons that you object to????

But who decides what the right reason is for choosing name??

26 10 2011
antqueen

It’s a bit of both. I mean if a parent wanted to name their kid MAserati after the car that’s both a dumb name and a dumb reason isn’t it? In both cases, I object! Often most of these people either choose a strange name because it sounds ‘classy’ or they can’t spell. Simple as that. Or to break it down more, stupid parents sometimes choose stupid names.

If your concern is ‘stupidity’ then perhaps what you really want is for people to meet an aptitude test before they are permitted to breed?

If such a test were instituted, how do you know that you would pass it?

Your intellect, aptitude and tastes could relegate you (and every one of us on this website) to the realm of childnlessness…

31 10 2011
antqueen

In case you haven’t noticed, in many cases the ridiculously named offspring is often in the company of their parents, the kind who allow them to run around public spaces grabbing and throwing food and various other breakable objects as they combined spitting out swear words and screaming their lungs out. If you had a choice, would you allow these irresponsible parents to breed? And you wonder why society’s going to hell…these parents are popping out babies which they are unable to look after and unfortunately, kids grow up and this cycle if often repeated

1 11 2011
Jesse

Actually, because my wife and I foster, sadly, we do have experience of kids whose parents are not equipped to raise them.

But shouting and throwing food is what all kids do. If it wasn’t, every kid in NSW would be in DOCS care right now.

2 11 2011
antqueen

Fair enough, kids chuck food around and scream because they don’t know better. But it’s the job of the PARENTS to stamp this behaviour out of them. I was taught from young to never do that or there would be serious consequences. I work in a restaurant and the amount parents who just let their kid play with cutlery and break dishes is astounding.

If you seriously think that it’s acceptable for kids to act like brats just because they’re ‘kids’, I’m sorry to say you probably won’t make a very good parent.

I’ve recently heard of a couple of horrors from around these parts but I’m disinclined to mention them and not because of Jesse (are you aware that’s Glaswegian for “big girls blouse”, “woose”, “sook” etc?) but because they are beyond preposterous.
That and the fact that I struggle to remember them when I ask those that do know – I may have to write them down in the event that I’m coerced into revealing these sins of the parents.
Oh and for the “big fooking jesse’s” information, my children all have normal, average and classical spellings of equally normal, average and classical names.
What are YOUR children named?

1 11 2011
Jesse

I didn’t choose my name. If I had, I would have chosen something more masculine, that’s for sure.

We don’t have any biological kids yet, but foster lots of kids in crisis situations. Many of their names feature on this list.

You still didn’t say what your children are called!

Seamus (fits perfectly with our Irish family name and ancestry), Cassandra and Emily.
Oh so terribly exotic aren’t they?
Consider Jesse, when looking at the various negatives the multitude of respondents to this blog post raise, that most of the sentiments will not be that far removed from those that the unfortunate child will suffer in their life time. Their parents have brought unfair judgement upon the child in applying a first impression that the child must either work thrice as hard to conquer or simply buckle under and submit to. Much like Linkin Danger, one of the local new additions will have to for the rest of his life. I can only imagine it will go something like;
” Yes, yes. Danger REALLY is my middle name.”

Quite witty that the model names of popular Australian cars such as “Monaro” and “Caprice” have been included It’s only a matter of time before someone calls their child “Camaro.”

27 12 2011
Fiona of Mount Lawley

Caprice ? I propose a new rule.

Obviously governments in free societies can’t make arbitrary rules about who can and can’t have children. (Except in specific circumstances such jurisdictions where a decriminalization of consensual incestuous relationships between siblings and half-siblings who are both adults has occurred, where a person is the recipient of specific medications, or where a person has and can pass on certain stipulated genetic disorders.)

I propose that all parents must look up the name they propose to attach to their offspring in a dictionary, before they may enter it upon a registration of birth. Preferably a medical dictionary too. That would save unknowable numbers from being called Candida, Melena and Chlamydia.

Caprice will grow up to be capricious.

And I wish you always remain content James Hunter, and hope you one day realise that having children (biologically or otherwise) is the greatest priveledge and joy in life. My child’s name is not on the list, but it is a very unusual name with no weird spelling – so what does that make me? A bogan or not? (rhetorical question).
Jesse – you rock! We need more people like you. No more James Hunter’s please, I already know 4 of them and they are all a*holes like this one. Common or bogan, oh decisions decisions!!
Why would you call your child Seamus? It rhymes with anus!!! Great playground entertainment, well done, I’m sure your son will thank you for that! See, we can all ridicule names if we want to, not big or clever. See ya, I’m off to play with the bogans, the snobs here are boring me.

2 11 2011
Q.

The amusement-quotient of names is subjective. As is the judgement of what may or may not be the greatest “priveledge” in life. Just because you are able to reproduce, does not necessarily mean you should. And just because you are allowed to pick out your child’s name, does not necessarily mean you should. The great thing about the internet is you don’t have to visit sites that don’t add value to your life. So maybe you should move along now.

I read a trash magazine at the barbers today. Saw that Kim Kardashion has a sister called Kylie!!!

Is Kylie a bogan name or an anti-bogan one?

Some people (i.e. Wikipedia) would say that Kylie Mole either invented or popularised the word ‘bogan’ and alongside that, the very idea that such a race of people as bogans even exists…

The name Kylie is popularly thought to have originated in an Aboriginal language word for boomerang.

If so, is it cool or skanky that LA celebrities are taking up Aboriginal Australian names?

3 11 2011
Simon - Glasser at Arms, Constant source of Randomness

Stretching dude.

3 11 2011
James Hunter

Actually a quick wiki check says it is the feminine form of Kyle and is of Gaelic or Celtic origin and means beautifull ,attractive or even strait of waters
The aboriginal use of it for boomarang was from a single WA tribe so I cant see that having a lot of legs.?

8 11 2011
Jesse

I’m not sure if Wikipedia is right. If it were true, lots of Scottish and Irish girls would be named Kylie. But they’re not!

If you google the name Kylie, only Australians (and Kim Kardashian’s sister) come up. No Irish or Scottish girls appear.

I am inclined to think that the name Kyle is the masculine form of the name Kyla. But Kylie is something different altogether.

8 11 2011
James Hunter

Jesse,
Several sites quote the origin as boomerang they are all Australian sites.
Many more European/UK sites all quote it as Celtic and as simply The Female version of Kyle.

I can’t imagine a bogan ever naming a child anything like Sebastian, it’s an old-fashioned English name and has never so far as I know been trendy in any way! Perhaps if they spelled it Sebaxtian or something they might consider it, but actually, it’s even a surprisingly difficult name to butcher now that I try it.

I heard of someone calling her baby girl Cutie. Yes she was a bogan and an abo to boot. The abos are quite bad for merging names. Such as Jaznika a combination of Jasmine and Nikita. I have heard hundreds of those merged names and each time I cringe.

There’s a reason for that – in a lot of aboriginal cultures, it’s taboo to speak the name of someone who dies for quite a long time. So if your kid has a common name, and someone you know by that name dies…can be kind of tricky to get Short Stuff’s attention before they run out onto the road if you can’t say their name for a year! Eventually it gets easier to just make a new name up.

And of course, some are just bogans too.

Passing through on my way to bike race at Macclesfield JH.

Macclesfield is a nice spot . We used to live just out of Strathalbyn off the Macclesfield road, About 500 mtrs before the Maccey rd hits the Mt Barker / Wistow rd there is a little Rd off to the rh. used to be dirt and a hrad back turn then immediately left and over the hill. we had 4 acres about 400 mtrs down on the left.
There has been a new Golf course / housing development there recently so not too sure about how it is . last i looked on google earth the new owners had put a bigger house on the block but at least the hundreds of trees we planted were still there.
Nice area. Have fun.

Cheers JH, we often ride from Adelaide down to Strath and back, one of my fvrits! No good in the race today, legs were ordinary all race. The last climb was up Retort Hill (on the Greenhills Rd out of Macclesfield) which hits a 20% gradient. I tried to give it a kick up there, split the field up but there were guys going better than me and they rode away. Could not chase them down so out of the money today. All good fun but painful!

Courier-Mail from a couple of weeks ago had a Hunter Savage-Darling in the baby names, also a Saij. I’ve heard parents talking to Holiday and Otis at the supermarket.

Family member called her son Tarix…

and my partners mother is a nurse, out west, a Aboriginal baby called Kerosene. It is pronounced Care -ros-sony.

Perhaps they couldn’t spell it?

At school I knew a child who had three siblings. Their names were:

Heath
Poppy
Lily, and of course
Fern
(All plants)

I actually thought it was very cute lol :)

Why do bogans feel the need to have their childrens names tattooed on the body? Is is so they can remember how to spell their child’s name? Most common I have seen is wrists, arms, feet, back, shoulder and the worst on the side of their neck.
BTW one of the names I saw tattooed was Miami-Lee mmmmmmm

the tattoos may be of the bouges favourite hooker ? or toy boy ?

Kyan (rhymes with Ryan). It is an attempt to make the name Keon/Kian (“kee-yon”) which is a common name in Iran and amongst Persians sound more “Aussie”…whatever that means.

Cull Bogans

Most bogan names I’ve heard in Melbourne are names from the day time soaps: Harley, Brooke, Melissa, Taylor, Dakota.

That’s because they spend most days watching American soaps in between collecting dole money, selling drugs and breaking into your house.

El

My name is Eloise and I always see it spelt wrong i.e. ellouise, ellalouise, elluise – itll probably get worse now that Denise Richards has a child called Eloise (spelt correctly hooray!)… My mum always said it was ignorance, liking a name but having to guess how its spelt lol.

Another bogan name – Tiara.
Apparently there used to be sibling doctors in Brisbane called Treasure, Handsome and Precious… and my dad once told me he help with a birth in a bogan town in the outback and when the baby was born the mother asked what the afterbirth was called, when told it was placenta, she named her child that…

I am an Eloise (spelled correctly), too. The best (worst) spelling I have ever seen of our name is Ellawoize. Nice.

Loverthing

Met the neighbours last night, all renters. One nest of bogans named one of the female spawn Maddy-Ce Anna (Maddy Sienna). The story is they wanted Sienna but Maddy was too normal (apparently). Thus the parents decided to name their get Maddy Ce Anna but an uncle mistakenly introduced the hyphen – “But we LOVED it!!”.

I had to avoid looking at my wife.

actually please remove my post lol, I don’t wanna get glassed.

Kylie

I’m a Kylie- named before anyone had heard of Kylie Minogue. My mum wanted to honour both our Scottish heritage and our Australian present by giving me a name that was an Australian twist on the Scottish Kyle/Kyla. It hasn’t been easy having my name, what with a pop princess and a bogan icon sharing it. But I take comfort from Kylie Tennant, an amazing 20th century Australian author. Weirdly enough I seem to have repeated history. I wanted to continue our tradition of Scottish names and chose the name Lachlan for my son, only to see it become one of the most popular baby names in Australia over the next ten years. Both my name and my son’s name will date us. :(

My neighbours called their latest kid Rhibbecker.
