I think that the name Cole is pretty horrible

Con

There are quite a few names that are worse. Dick Moore is one that pops to mind. There are others, and they will be mentioned in round 2, but I would like to hear my opponent's justification that "cole" is the worst name. Worst, meaning there is none worse then it.

Being that the name "Cole" is related to the word coal, people would probably mess up all the time with the spelling.

Dick Moore is a pretty bad name though.

Con

With famous people, such as Nat "King" Cole, and a Cole Sprouse (Suite life of Zach and Cody), we can see that the name Cole does not actually effect one's ability to live and succeed in this world. However, other, more embarassing names, such as Ima Tard, Dick Moore (which in role call, where they say your last name first would be Moore, Dick), or the ever popular Seymore Butts (who did become a famous porno director, but he changed his name to that, rather then be born with it), are more likely to actually cause a negative effect in one's life and so are worse names for anyone, including babies.

There are tons of names worse then "cole" but I am curious to see if he actually has justification for it.

Superman and Espn (ESPN) would definitely be worse in my opinion. These are names of people...
