Comic book names too silly to say out loud in live action

I have a lady friend who I've turned into a hardcore MCU fan. But she didn't grow up reading this stuff so her reactions to some names I give her are telling as a non-fan.

The New Gods will have the hardest time getting respectability according to her - names like Darkseid, Steppenwolf, Granny Goodness and Mister Miracle make her snicker in their hokeyness. The Justice League movie being a mess wasn't helped by their badly named villain.

Other silly names to her are Black Bolt and He-Man.

Thank goodness they turned Killmonger and Kilgrave into assumed nicknames rather than literal names in the MCU, she says.

Anyone else?

Teenage Negasonic Teenage Warhead is a mouthful.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, though iím pretty sure that was intended.

Much as i hate to admit it, Blue Beetle.

The Ten Eyed Man. Sigh, i love that one.

I'm generally of the opinion that steering in to the ludicrousness of comics makes them better when it comes to making movies.

That said, Maggot is an awful name for a superhero.

Most of the Legion Of Super Heroes have stupid, outdated names.

And though I'm a Thor fan - Beta Ray Bill is too silly.

I thought Beta Ray Bill was cool.

There is 3D Man, Ruby Thursday, Spawn, Orb, Doop, Gamecock(no seriously I just googled him) , X-O Manowar, Killowog, Phone ranger, bi-beast, parallax, puck, Despotellis, gibbon, dex-starr etc
The list is way long
