I was following my Baby Center Birth Club group and the ladies have known some people with very interesting names. It makes you wonder how many are urban legends, but you know people name their kids some weird things. Take a look at this article from Time: Top 10 Wacky Celebrity Baby Names. Not only that, every popular movie that comes out brings in a whole generation of kids named after the heroes and heroines of box office hits (according to StyleCaster Django and Katniss are some of the most popular baby names from 2013).
I’m all for unique and interesting names, but there’s a point where it’s too much. These parents flew past that point when they named their kids…
- Marijuana Pepsi-Cola
- Chewbaca (…if it’s possible to make this worse, it was for a girl…)
- ESPN (Pronounced ‘Espen’)
- Dovahkiin (Bethesda Softworks had a contest and anyone who named their kid Dovahkiin got free Bethesda games for life)
- Ima Hogg (there’s an urban legend that she had a sister named “Ura Hogg”)
Does anyone else have any names to add to this list?
