    Weirdest Baby Names of 2013

    As I was checking my emails, I found an article on ParentDish about 2013's weirdest baby names (http://www.parentdish.ca/2013/12/09/...st-baby-names/ ) According to the article, the data is taken from BabyCenter, a popular baby site. According to BabyCenter US, 43% of parents chose an unusual/creative name this year (so the article says). This is the top 10 list they provided for the 'weirdest baby names of 2013'.

    Boys:

    Osbaldo
    Danish
    Rocket
    Yash
    Cub
    Zion
    Panda
    Hurricane
    Leviathan
    Legend


    Girls:

    Azza
    Kiwi
    Fairy
    Archita
    Wrigley
    Kukua
    Ezgi
    Blip
    Nyx
    Green


    What do you think? Are these weird enough to be the weirdest?

    I kind of like Kiwi for a little lady.

    Some of these names don't surprise me - Zion for example isn't weird at all.

    Panda though, or Hurricane? Not great.

    Some of these are pretty weird, but I'm reminded of a list I compiled from the 2011 data with some pretty out-there ones... Among them...

    Girls:

    Blessyng (Bad enough to name her Blessing, but Y the Y?!)
    Jermany (Again, bad enough to call her Germany...)
    Sheccid (Perhaps this is a legitimate name in some culture, but it looks like a cross between Shelly and Flaccid... ew.)
    Swayze (Naming after Patrick Swayze? ...A daughter?! Swayzee and Swayzie were also listed. Altogether they amounted to 52 girls in 2011. Sigh.)

    Boys:

    Jakevious (Jake and Mischievous, somehow combined for maximum horrible factor...)
    Sauron (This is just mean.)
    Winifred (I guess that's one way to get Freddie...)

    Zion isn't all that weird, I know a Zion (who is a teenager) but it does surprise me that it is on the Weird list.

    We New Zealanders call ourselves Kiwis, (because of the national bird) but naming a baby Kiwi? No thanks.

    Maybe Cub is the new Bear, or Wolf?
    Lee, blackbird.

    Aleka . Audrey . Cass . Chloe . Etta . India . Marian . Margot . Miranda . Molly . Natalie . Rosi . Samantha . Stephanie
    Christopher . Dylan . Henry . James . Julian . Levi . Paul . River . Vern . William

    that's what I guessed, parents who wanted to go for Bear/Wolf but felt it was 'too trendy' so they needed to go one step above with Cub :P
