Okay, so I'm all for trying to be original when it comes to naming your kids. It's your kid, it's your choice. HOWEVER, there is a line between what is cool and what is just straight up weird.
The Journal Metro recently released a list of some of the popular baby names in Quebec from 2017 and let me tell you some of them seem too weird to be true. They've been organized into different categories like nature-inspired and movie-inspired so you can see where I'm going with these.
The kids who got stuck with these names are definitely going to be embarrassed during attendance at school and will probably adopt nicknames that they force everyone to call them.
Nothing can beat that time that some parents in New Zealand named their kid "Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii" and then lost custody. Now that's an example for the books. I'm not saying that these names are on that level, just some of them are ridiculous and silly, and I feel bad for them is all.
Names Inspired By Nature
Marry-Lune // Marie-Fleur // Marie-Ciel // Marie-Blanche // Marie des anges
I don't even know where to start when trying to figure out how to pronounce "Uteimenaniss-April". And Sabrina Snow just sounds like some kid superhero.
Queen // Queen Providence
Queen Providence?? Really? What kind of life are you trying to set your child up for here? At least you could probably nickname here Queenie or something. Imagine being a 5-year-old named Queen Providence. Attendance is sure going to be embarrassing for that kid.
Weirdly Spelled Names
Sofya-Roze // Sofiyah
Zakharie // Zakariya // Zakkary
Willhiam // Wyliam // Will-Lyam
Yzak // Yzaak // Yzaack
Alekcy // Aleksey
Some of these just read as sounds, not names. And yeah, these kids can just give up now on the dream of ever having their names spelled right. You've just condemned them to a life of correcting people. Stop inventing new ways to write names!
WHO THE HELL CALLS THEIR KID TESLA?!
Movie And TV-Inspired Names
Khalessi // Khaleesi
Though it may seem cool at first, calling your kid Usher is just weird. And Jagger? And Nelly? They aren't going to be famous just because you name them after someone who is.
