It’s one thing being a little bit different and creative when it comes to picking out a name for your child but then there’s just being cruel. Some parents seem to want the wildest and wackiest names for their children so will go as far as making up crazy new ones. The folks over at 9GAG have created this list showing us 26 times when parents picked out ridiculous names for their kids. Get ready to meet the parents of babies ‘Hashtag’, ‘Chairish’, ‘Fire Star’ and more! Take a look!
Although you might find yourself laughing as you read these names, we actually feel really sorry for these children. These parents don’t seem to care that their kids could possibly be subjected to bullying and teasing. A person’s name is a huge part of their identity, so it can be hugely damaging to be ashamed of the thing that people have to call you!
Another thing parents need to take into consideration is how draining it can be to go your whole life having to correct people who mispronounce your name. In situations like job interviews, the last thing you want to come off as is rude by having to correct someone. The same often goes for teachers and new people that you meet! No one should ever have to feel embarrassed over something as simple as their name.
We’re now coming to the end of our list of shocking baby names. We hope that this post has inspired you to to be fair to your children! Ultimately, it is the decision of the parents what to name their child, and arguably it is no one else’s business, but can you honestly say you don’t sometimes judge people by their names? ‘Dr. Hashtag will see you now’ just doesn’t have quite the right ring to it…
