You're at a bar and some fictional movie character comes up and introduces her or himself. How long will it take before the subsequent conversation trends toward anything other than some form of, "But, seriously, what's your real name?"

And that's how we created this collection of the 25 worst movie character names ever. If the answer to the above hypothetical scenario was "30 seconds flat," that character made our highly-researched, scientifically-ranked list.

We've brought this feature back to the forefront in honor of Will Smith's turn as Cypher Raige in "After Earth." Yes, that's right — his name is "Cypher Raige." If you know of even worse character names than that — and that of those in the list below — hit us up in the comments.

25. Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise), 'Jack Reacher' (2012)

24. Jericho Cane (Arnold Schwarzenegger), 'End of Days' (1999)

23. Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), 'Mean Girls' (2004)

22. Jonah Hex »
