Baby Names Keep Getting Weirder

BabyCenter has released their list of the most unusual baby names of 2012, and there are a few dandies on the list.

Congrats, by the way, to the coolest babies born this week in East Texas. Lily Scarlett arrived at 12:12 p.m. on 12-12-12. That’s a cool name, and is not on the Babycenter “unusual” list. Nice work mom and doctors! She was born to Eric and Salena Rozell at East Texas Medical Center, as you know from Chase Colston’s blog yesterday. In Jacksonville, another baby girl was born at 12:12 p.m. on 12-12-12. Her parents are keeping her name under wraps. Is it Thinn? That’s one of the unusual names populating the BabyCenter list.

To make the list, a name had to be given to at least two children sometime in 2012. BabyCenter calls these names creative, you may call them odd. It’s a great conversation starter with co-workers at the office.

Before we criticize these names, we should all reveal what we’ve named our own children and let others judge us. My daughters are Finley, Kallan, and Piper. Now … on with the judging of these names.

Thinn really is on the list of unusual girl names, perhaps from sets of parents that hope their daughter works out a lot and eats a lot of lettuce.

Other unusual girl names include Kaixin, Ace, Yoga, Sanity, Jury, and Zealand.

Do you think Jury’s parents are lawyers? Hmm.

And can you imagine having to scream the name Sanity when she’s three years old and throws a fit, refusing to put her Hello Kitty boots on and you’re ten minutes late to work because of it? SAAAAANNNNNIIITTTYYY, come here right now, you’re asking for it! She’ll be a constant reminder of what those parents used to have before kids.

Unusual boy names on the Babycenter list include Donathan, Popeye, Espn, Aero, and Google. Seriously! Google is on the list. We wonder if his classmates will ask him where to find things. Oh … another on the boy list is Goodluck. We wonder if Goodluck has a sister named Sanity.
