Australia’s most bogan baby names for 2020 revealed

- Advertisement -

Bogan baby names are back for another year, and there are some absolute crackers on the list. While 2020 has been quite the train wreck, new parents have responded with some proper belters when naming their newborns. And so here, Kidspot crown the winners of our favourite all-Aussie monikers.For more stories like this, go to kidspot.com.au BEST BOGAN NAMES FOR GIRLSCARRYNKarens everywhere have had a tough year. First the pandemic, and then the Karen memes. ALL of the Karen memes. But disguising “Karen” as “Carryn” doesn’t fool anyone, mama. I know you’ve loved this moniker since childhood, but I really think you should let it go.CHABLISHow did I manage to miss this wine-inspired epithet? I’ve chuckled at Shiraz, Chardonnay and Shardonné over the years, but I hadn’t heard of Chablis until I met one in the flesh a few weeks ago. The only problem was that she didn’t pronounce it “cha-BLEE” like the French wine region, but “TCHA-bliss”. Oh boy, was it ever hard to contain my glee.CORONAYou knew there would be at least one virus-inspired name on this list, right? While there were countless ones to choose from, some of the other appellations – such as Covid, Lockdown and Sanitiser – were used by parents in foreign countries who may have reasons I don’t understand for choosing them. But Corona has had a boost in popularity the world over, so here she is in all her glory.GRACELANDEven if you’re a diehard Elvis fan, why would you want to name your child after his Memphis mansion? Wouldn’t Grace, Priscilla or Lisa Marie do as a tribute? There are so many alternatives…RELATED: Bring back the bogan: Aussie names going extinct HONESTEEHonestlee, this hurts my head. I’m already not a huge fan of the next-gen virtue names, but a misspelt one to boot? I’m out.JEZZABELLAAccording to the Hebrew Bible, Jezebel was one of the original bad girls. Trying to jazz up her name with a double “Z” and a modern “bella” ending is an odd choice in my books.JINXI get that 2020 is a strange year, but naming your daughter after a curse or a plague is probably not going to make things better. I’m not superstitious at all, but this is too much even for me.JUMELLEThe thing with choosing random foreign words as baby names because they sound cool is that sometimes their meanings aren’t fit for a bubba. “Jumelle” means “twin girl” in French. Weird.KLOWEEI was happy to note that there were fewer spelling massacres this year, but this butchering of “Chloe” nearly knocked me off my chair.PISTOLAs you’ll see in the boys’ section, there’s a real trend towards violent first names. I guess people are feeling tense about the year’s events, but a wee baby girl called PISTOL? Come on, parentals. Just say no.RELATED: Two names to avoid for a unique baby name BEST BOGAN BABY NAMES FOR BOYSAXEExhibit B on the dangerous weapons list. I was already mildly shocked when monikers such as Blaze and Diesel started appearing a few years ago, but these are next level. Do the owners have any choice but to become criminals? I mean, they can’t exactly be schoolteachers or Supreme Court Justices.BAMBOOYeah, nah, not feeling it. Just because rapper Big Boi did it many years ago doesn’t mean you should too. It’s been well-established that celebrities are not a reputable resource for baby naming and this instance is no different.CHATONThis is another fantastic example of a foreign word that sounds cute but doesn’t make any sense. It means “kitten” in French for crying out loud! Name your son Chaton and he’s guaranteed
