List of Banned Baby Names in Australia

If you’re considering a unique name for your baby, don’t get inspiration from this list.

A list of banned baby names has been released after parents tried to name their baby after one of these particular monikers.

Victoria was the first state to release 46 names that parents had attempted to name their baby, and were subsequently placed on the banned list.

Now there is a list of 17  names banned throughout Australia.  While some of the names are fairly self-explanatory on why they’re banned (Seriously, who calls their kid ‘d*ckhead or sh*thead?!) others beg the question – what were the parents thinking?!

Here is the complete list of 46 banned names in Victoria, as well as a list of banned names in all of Australia.
