    Australia's weirdest baby names

    Parenting website The Baby Centre has compiled its annual list of Australia's weirdest baby names. Each name was given to at least two children in Australia in 2012. More comprehensive list here: http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/par...-1226536009955.

    Girls:

    Excel
    J'Adore
    Juju
    Jury
    Monalisa
    Oasis
    Rogue

    Zealand

    Boys:

    Ball
    Burger

    Goodluck

    Haven'T
    Hippo
    Hurricane
    Mango
    Popeye
    Thunder
    Turbo

    These are my personal favourites from the list (fifteen for each gender). Interestingly, the list also includes a couple of nameberry favourites for girls - Orchid and, to a lesser extent, Queenie. Good luck to the children given these monikers...

    To me, the ok names – Ace, Jagger, Jazzy, Monalisa, Orchid, Oasis, Queenie, Starlit, Tigerlily, Bond, Crusoe, Mowgli. If I loved one, I'd actually consider it for a middle spot. But some, I wonder ... I'd hate to be named Excel or Espn or Google or Hippo. Especially Hippo.

    A lot of those names are laugable (Shoog?!?!?!) and I think Orchid and Queenie aren't that bad for girls. Leeloo is nice sounding, though Lilou is much prettier. Is it bad that I like the name Cobain for a boy? It's mostly due to the fact I'm a huge Nirvana fan, but I really do like how Cobain sounds. Maybe if it becomes more mainstream I'd consider naming it to my future son... but as for now it's a guilty pleasure ;_;
