To me its Gray Fullbuster (Fairy Tail) and Launch (Dragonball) I just think those are terrible/uncreative names. What about you?

Eiichiro Oda has fully admitted that he gave the name Killer to the Eleven Supernova character because he was being lazy.

It's a real English name but spelled differently. It's Gildart without the z or the s. Yeah, I think Hiro Mashima was trying to add German names such as Makarov and Ivan for a theme. Also, it's the name of the coat of arms. See this link.

As for worst names in Shounen, I would say Bra from Dragon Ball GT if it wasn't for the theme of naming children in Bulma's family after undergarments.

Why you name me Bra?!
Why you name me Bra?!

Most of the Gundam characters have the most god awful names, with some exceptions

Death the Kid is the only name so bad it actually repulsed me from watching a series. One day, Soul Eater, I'll get the hell over it, but FUCK THAT NAME.

Luffy, sounds like the name that one would give to a puppy

I agree with this one Takashichea, but luckily for her, there are worse names than that.

Kohta from Elfen Lied. Not because the name itself is really that bad but because it sounds the same with chicken in Greek. I was laughing everytime I was hearing it lol

Kal-el Albus - He has the Superman's real name for some reason. I have no idea why they name him that way. There's plenty of fake names to protect your identity. Why pick Superman's name?

I know it has a different meaning in French, but Poupée from Madlax I found rather interesting.
