Naming your new baby feels like one of the most important choices of your life as you don’t want to get it wrong.
Family names, pretty monikers and nothing that can be rhymed with a rude word are all usually at the top of the list. But, not always…
Some parents want to give their baby a unique name which represents them as an individual – and some of these names really stand out.
Over on Twitter, people have flocked together to share the most shocking and hilarious names they’ve ever heard and they do not disappoint.
Among the uncommon names were Kingslayer, Khaleesi, Diesel Duramax, Psamantha and Crystal Shining Waters.
We assume the P is silent on Psamantha, but we can’t be sure.
Meanwhile Twitter posters criticised a parent who named their son Anakin despite their other children having traditional names.
And, another poster said: “My coworker named her baby ‘Strawberry Rain.’ Which would be a great baby name, if she had given birth to a bottle of shampoo.”
A second noted: “Met a girl named Jennifert in college…Jennifer with a T. Why? Because her parents wanted her to be different.”
And, a third commented: “My kids used to have friends in school whose names were Neptune, Galaxy, and Uranus. All girls.
“And no, this is NOT a legend or a myth. Their parents were astronomers. Poor Uranus got it the worst.”
Also listed on the social media thread was the name Cocaine, Phelany (pronounced the same as Felony), Paige Turner and Kviiilyn (pronounced Kaitlyn as in K-8-lyn).
A teacher wrote: “I’m teaching in an elementary classroom and had a boy named Jacuzzi. That was a fun one.”
“Reinbeaux (pronounced rainbow),” noted another.
We’re surprised that nobody mentioned Elon Musk and singer Grimes’ baby: “X Æ A-12”.
No, we don’t know how to pronounce it either…
