Yeah, I totally understand the whole unique baby name thing, and I “get” it about people looking at you like you’re insane when you say, “My son’s name is Lars.” Sometimes, I’m still not even sure if I did the right thing when I named him. I joke that I was pregnant and hormonal, and I was tired of arguing with his father over naming him Brody or Lars.
And of course, now I know that some guy from Metallica is named Lars, and everyone thinks I must be a huge heavy metal fan or something.
I am not a fan of heavy metal.
But even with me, someone who should totally be sensitive to a unique baby name, I cannot wrap my brain around the latest crazy baby name.
On Saturday, it was reported that a mother named her newborn baby girl, “Hashtag Jameson.”
What. The. What?!
It is still unclear if this is just a joke, or if this is for real and is the stupidest name ever. For this baby’s sake, I hope it’s a joke. I mean, I adore social media as much as the next guy, but I certainly won’t be naming my children “Retweet” (or “RT” for short) anytime soon. However, there was this dude in Egypt, Gamal Ibrahim, who named his baby girl “Facebook.” Which… COME ON, DUDE!
So what do you think? What are some ridiculous baby names that you’ve heard?
