    The "Ocean's" Movies Gave All Their Characters Weird Names So I Ranked Them From Worst To Best

    Have you ever watched Ocean's Eleven and said to yourself "These people have some of the worst names imaginable"? If so, then this is a list for you.

    25. Linus

    Warner Bros.

    This name has no right to exist outside of the Peanuts comics. It is such an ugly name. According to howmanyofme.com, there are fewer than 1,658 people named Linus in the United States. To those 1,658 people, I personally want to apologize to you for having such an awful name.

    24. Virgil

    Warner Bros.

    Apparently this is the name of an angel or something, but that does not excuse it from being judged, and I say that this name sucks. End of story.

    23. Basher

    Warner Bros.

    Everyone has to agree with me on this one. This name is downright stupid. And he doesn’t even bash stuff, he explodes stuff! With this name, and that accent, this character is just a man made of bad choices.

    22. Turk

    Warner Bros.

    I couldn’t even find a decent photo of Mr. Scott Caan from the Ocean’s movies without Virgil in it. So, in a desperate attempt, I resorted to looking at pictures from Hawaii Five-0, a show where he plays a character with a much better name. I’m sorry Mr. Caan that they did you so dirty with your name. Turk isn’t a real name, and no fictional character should ever be called it.

    21. Reuben

    Warner Bros.

    This is the name of a sandwich, not a man.

    20. Nine Ball

    Warner Bros.

    I understand why she goes by this nickname, but that does not excuse the fact that this is an inanimate object and not a name. Cool motivation, still a stupid nickname.

    19. François

    Warner Bros.

    He’s French. Even uses the stupid accented c that I have never written correctly in all my five years of French class. Enough on him.

    18. Rusty

    Warner Bros.

    I’m sorry Brad Pitt that you had to do three whole movies being called Rusty.

    17. Livingston

    Warner Bros.

    This name is just plain silly. A clown of a name. Foolish, foolish writers.

    16. Roman

    Warner Bros.

    I’ll be the first to admit it: this name isn’t that bad. But, hey! Can’t a girl have opinions? And my opinion is that the name Roman is horrible.

    15. Claude

    Warner Bros.

    This dude’s whole thing is pretentious and stupid and that includes his name! His name is also French, so automatically it isn’t valid.

    14. Lou

    Warner Bros.

    Everything about this character is amazing. Her fashion sense, her personality, the fact that she does crime, her motorcycle. All perfect. But do you know what isn’t perfect, her name. I refuse to believe Lou is a real name.

    13. Tammy

    Warner Bros.

    Tammy? Tammy? That’s the name you’re going to name a character in a movie that came out in 2018? The bad names from Ocean’s Eleven can be somewhat forgiven. But Tammy? In 2018? No.

    12. Terry

    Warner Bros.

    Okay, in the movies he is almost always referred to as Benedict, but that name is no better than Terry. Benedict Cumberbatch fans DO NOT come for me! Benedict is a bad name and so is Terry. Simple as that.

    11. Daphne

    Warner Bros.

    Scooby Doo ass name.

    10. Tess

    Warner Bros.

    This name is too short to be a real name. Only first names that are 5+ letters are valid.

    9. Constance

    Warner Bros.

    I guess this name isn’t that bad, but it’s a name that I think only grandmas can pull off. Sorry Awkwafina, but you aren’t a grandma yet.

    8. Saul

    Warner Bros.

    What is this, Better Call Saul? Get this name out of here! It is up this high only because he is an old man. If Ocean’s Eleven tried to name a twenty-year-old Saul then you bet that that Saul would be number 24 on this list.

    7. Rose

    Warner Bros.

    Now we’re talking actually normal people's names. Still named after a flower and I don’t like flowers, but at least she was named with a normal flower name, not tulip or something weird like that.

    6. Yen

    Warner Bros.

    I am going on the record and stating that I am neutral on this name.

    5. Isabel

    Warner Bros.

    I was going to make a Phineas and Ferb joke, but then I remember that the name I was thinking of was Isabella, so I am out of joke for this one folks! It’s a nice name I guess. The one L at the end is throwing me off though.

    4. Amita

    Warner Bros.

    I have to admit, this name is pretty. I really like this name. It makes a great addition to the top five best names from this franchise.

    3. Debbie

    Warner Bros.

    I think the Ocean family is from New Jersey, so I don’t know any better names to name your New Jerseyan children than Daniel and Deborah. Debbie has always been the name meant for the sister of Danny Ocean, and by god Ocean’s Eight delivered.

    2. Frank

    Warner Bros.

    What a name! This is a good, strong name! A little silly and probably a name I would list if I had to list out names of dads, but being a dad name does not necessarily make it a bad name. In this house, Frank is a great name.

    1. Danny

    Warner Bros.

    At the end of the day, at least they gave the central character of the franchise a good name. I don’t have a single complaint against this name, and I’m even going to compliment it. Thank god they called him Danny because if they just called him Daniel, then the whole vibe of the movie would be thrown off. Danny is a good name to have when doing a heist, Daniel is not. It’s way too formal.
