Merit-zell.  That’s how this name will be pronounced 99% of the time by 99% of the people that this kid encounters over her life, despite the fact that it is properly pronounced Mu-ree-shell.

Thanks for the lifelong headache, Mom!

(Another one where the video doesn’t match the post, I know. Two for the price of one, I say!)

My name is Meritxell. ya, people pronounce it wrong sometimes, but I correct them and they tell me it’s a beautiful name. So thanks, asshole

You’re welcome, cunt.

Wow, what the fuck is your problem?! like making a website like this and shit.

I think it’s pretty apparent that my problem is stupid kid names.

Meritxell is essentially the Catalan equivalent of Mary. Even if you pronounce the x like a z meaning you’re partially illiterate, the pronunciation is still not too far off. Most of the names on this list I’d agree are completely ridiculous, but putting Meritxell on this list is just cultural insensitivity.

Sigh…here we go again. All of the OTHER names on here are fine …until you mention MY little baby!

Meritxell is a shitty name no matter what culture you subscribe to.

Lindsey June 23, 2014 at 3:50 pm

Partially illiterate…in what culture, dipshit?


Meritxell February 29, 2016 at 6:33 pm

My name is also Meritxell and I however do not think my name is stupid and no one has the right to shame kids because of their names.


Meritxell February 29, 2016 at 6:39 pm

Whats your name I bet it sucks idiot.
