But no, these names were given for the very first time to at least five American babies, earning a place on the Social Security’s extended name popularity list.
The craziest of the crazy new names? Here are our picks for the Top 12, plus a handful of other new names that should never have been:
We couldn’t resist this question on the forums: Which names do you wish you were brave enough to use?
Names you love….except nobody else does?
Names that are cool….but maybe a little too quirky?
Lovely literary names….with dark stories behind them?
Your mouth popped open.
Your jaw dropped.
You simply could not believe what your mother, your spouse, your college roommate, that stranger on the message board said about your baby’s name….or your own.
What’s the most outrageous, insulting, ignorant, ridiculous thing anyone has ever said to you about a name?
If you’ve been lucky enough not to be on the receiving end of a crazy name statement, what have you overheard someone else saying?
The just-released Social Security list includes over 1400 brand-new names, given for the very first time to five or more babies in the US.
As you might imagine, most of these names are pretty far out on the ledge. There are lots of kree8tiv spellings of more conventional names: Finlea and Massyn, Londonn and Karsan. There are names from around the world freshly introduced to America: Junhao and Mokshith and Motoki. There are original combo names — Charlotterose and Marcusjames — and there are new word names and place-names and surname-names — Revelation and Tokyo and Thoreau — and there are even a couple of wonderful old names revived for the modern world: Hypatia and Thisbe, Romilly and Calisto.
But all these newborn names look downright sedate compared to a handful of choices it’s hard to believe were given to even one baby, much less five….or ten….or 63.
