40 People Whose First Names Were Ruined By Pop Culture

Published 3 weeks ago

The unfortunate reality is that you cannot choose your own name at birth and it’s up to your parents to pick out a good one. Sometimes you get the generic “Mike” and “John”, an occasional “Brittany” and “Anthony” and then you can get dealt an unfortunate card and be named “Karen” or “Alexa” – and there’s nothing you can do but deal with it.

People online are sharing the ways pop culture ruined their first names and some of them are hilariously unfortunate. From Luke’s and Annie’s to Clinton’s and Zelda’s, check out the people whose first names were ruined by pop culture in the gallery below!

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
