A column on an Australian parenting website has gone viral after revealing the top bogan names for 2018.

The author, Sabrina Rogers-Anderson, wrote the column for Kidspot Australia, appealing for readers to "spare a thought for the babies who are crawling around with these monikers as we speak".

Featuring a variety of creative spelling and exotic syllables, here is the list of what not to name your newborns next year:

  1. Bylan
  2. Chavelle
  3. Carridyn
  4. Espirit
  5. Hairry
  6. Galaxcia
  7. Jaze
  8. Heavyn
  9. Konor
  10. Tannyyn
  11. Kreighton
  12. Wayve
  13. Squire Sebastian Senator
  14. Lahnii
  15. Tayn
  16. Ryliee
  17. Vaelen
  18. Shaelyn
  19. Xayvya
  20. Silverina

Last year's list included boys' names like Jakxsen, Wyliumm and Bacardi. Girls were graced with names like Feebi, Harleen and Mignon.

But if you have one of these 20 names, don't fret - it's not a scientific, or exhaustive, list.

Ms Rogers-Anderson says "most readers" take her "bogan musings as they were intended - a good-natured laugh".

"We all have a bit of bogan in us that needs to be celebrated. Truth be told, I can't help but like some of these names just a little bit."
