21 Weird Phobias You Never Knew Existed

15. Coulrophobia – Fear of clowns

The phobia name looks like some cool phobia but there is nothing cool about it. Clowns are meant to make us laugh but did you know they can instill fear in some people’s minds. Coulrophobia is the fear of the clowns (or Jokers).  The people suffering have the irrational fear of evil clowns.

16. Omphalophobia – Fear of the navel

The navel or belly button is just a normal body part for most of us. But Some people fear navels (their navel and in some cases other’s navel as well).  The people suffering from Omphalophobia do not like to touch their navel or someone else touching their navel.

17.  Sanguivoriphobia – Fear of vampires

While we know for sure that vampires are hypothetical blood drinking creatures, some people believe the vampires are real and they have an abnormal fear of vampires. The Sanguivoriphobia literally means the fear of blood eaters. Be careful next time watching a vampire horror film.

18. Turophobia – Fear of cheese

Turophobia is the fear of cheese. People who have it generally associate cheese with their traumatic memories and thus fear cheese.  This phobia is very uncommon but we can imagine the hard lives of the people suffering from it. This is the kind of phobia nobody would like to have.

19. Pentheraphobia – Fear of mother-in-law

I am sure mothers-in-law’s are too cool that everyone loves them. Some people may like or dislike their mother-in-law but for the others, they are a source of fear. Pentheraphobia is the fear of mother-in-law and people having it fear their mother-in-law.
