A Redditor, u/phuc_khanhcame across this name in a social media post.

The relative explained that her cousin was about to have a baby and shared the name they came up with for her daughter.

“My cousin’s last name is McGurk,” they said.

“And she wants to name you Aphrodite McGurk.”

The Redditor asked for a second opinion on name combinations.

“Am I being silly or is that the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard?” they asked.

Everyone seemed to agree that the name was horrible.

“I snorted,” one person commented.

“If it was a boy, I would 100% choose ‘Kirk’ or ‘Dirk’,” another joked.

“At least the child will turn out to be a quirky 20-year-old dreamer in an unusual romantic drama,” a third said.

“Sounds like Harry Potter,” said the fourth.

Others argue that the commenters are unfair to the cousins ​​- after all, it’s hard to think of any names when they’re hard to work with.

“To be fair, are there any names that sound silly to McGurk?” Ask a commenter.
