What are some names that will get a kid made fun of in school?

I'm talking about somewhat conventional names, not necessarily incredible ridiculous names.

As an example of a ridiculous name, I know someone who recently (a year or two) named their kid Kanye. Great move, naming your kid after a famously retarded and rude individual. Another would be naming their kid Barrack, which I know was done a lot in the past year. Even if the parents are pro-socialist, they should have given consideration the possibility that he would be a failure, even in their eyes, and then they would have a kid named after him. It's short sighted, even for them.

Don't saddle the kid with a long hard to spell name. Keep it simple and short.

I went to school with a guy named Richard Head. No one called him "Dick".

He was about 6'4" 250lbs.

In middle school we had a guidance counselor named, and I will swear on a stack of bibles that this is true, Harry Boner.

Seriously.

There was a sign on a church in my city announcing a visit by Rev. Dick Bumpass

Guy I work with named his daughter Ryan after his buddy.

I remember a kid named Enis. Guess what we called him?

How about Adam Manlove. Yikes, I felt bad for that kid. Not bad enough to make fun of him every change I got though.

We also had an asian girl named Hour. It was pronounced to sound like Whore. Yes Whore. On the first day of class the teacher would say "Hour"? Pronounced like hours and minutes. She'd tell him to call her "Kim". He'd ask if he pronounced it correctly and she'd say "yeah, close enough, I just go by Kim".

We had a few Bich's too. Cambodian named pronounced "Bit".

Worked with a woman named Toi Register, fwiw. (pronouncde like toy)

Read an article recently about kids with "odd" names being much more likely to end up in jail than kids with "normal" names. They thought it was due to being teased as a child and having a negative view of society.

In decades past it was a common man's name. Nothing "bad" about it at all. I don't understand why it would be in this thread.
As long as you spell it with an "I" he never had a problem with it (though it does sound feminine).
