    Sirius is from Harry Potter.
    As a teacher I often wonder what drugs the parents were on when they named their children. My current least favourite is M’rx.
    If you work out how to say it let me know and no it’s not MAX

    Haha I think if I had a child called burger I’d feel hungry 99% of the time! #picknmix

    Haha, there are some great names here – if you have a litter of kittens that is. Pen x #TwinklyTuesday

    Beth Riesgraf (actress) has a son named Pilot Inspektor! What was she thinking?

    Someone in my country (New Zealand) wanted to name their some 4real, but wasn’t allowed, thankfully. I think his name ended up being Superman. Poor kid.

  5. I agree the first name says a lot about someone inlcluding the parents. I want our kids names to be taken seriously and not be made fun of.

  6. Becki Svare says:

    I feel like our kids’ names are so boring, lol! And, I think I’m really comfortable with that 🙂 At least they won’t want to change them when they turn 18 🙂

  7. Amber Myers says:

    Interesting! I personally wouldn’t go with a weird name, but it seems to be the “thing” these days..

  8. Angela Zimsky says:

    I find it ridiculous when I hear parents have named their child something so odd.

  9. Holly says:

    We went with all traditional names.

  10. This is the problem with “fashionable” names – they go out of fashion! These kids will be thankful for deedpoll when they are older! #DreamTeam

  11. It’s like before you have your child there is actually very little to hold on to… so some decisions feel really important. Like the name. Of course, after you’ve had your little one you can’t imagine them having another name and that’s it. Some ‘different’ one here though! #dreamteam

  12. It’s every parent right to name their child and I think we really need to get over our hang up with other people’s name. Just my opinion.

  13. Jen says:

    Somebody named their twins fish and chips? You just can’t make these things up can you?

  14. Tyler says:

    Oh my gosh this post had me cracking up hahaha There’s a freakonomics piece about baby names and how they affect the life your child will have. Some of these have me worried…



  15. ellie says:

    I agree that “fashionable” names can go out of fashion fast and you may not like the name you picked after that. Also “weird names” like Fifi Trixibelle or Moon Unit etc… might not be so great for the kid as they grow up. But at the same time, to each their own I guess.

      It’s really hard to pick unique name but most important is to choose something which is not offensive for the kid

    Great post.. hilarious names

  17. Myteenguide says:

    Hahaha so cute names! These is really interesting but picking names is not so easy. Love these one!

  18. Elizabeth O. says:

    Sirius is actually from Harry Potter, one of the main characters’ name is Sirius. I think it’s nice to be unique, so long as the parents don’t over do the uniqueness of the names.

    • ohmummymia says:

      I know Sirius Black but looking on those names I thought it’s something more in it than name from Harry Potter:)

  19. Audi, Vodka!! wow, each to their own. Picking names is a tough one though. We found very little we both agreed on. #brilliantblogposts

  20. Amanda says:

    Sirius is actually a Harry Potter character 🙂

    The mom of Nutella… i wonder what she craved during pregnancy?? It’s such a mystery!

    • ohmummymia says:

      I know Sirius Black but looking on those names I thought it’s something more in it 😀 Yeah she had to love Nutella so much:D

  21. Chloe says:

    Some names are kind of cute like Audi, the others are hilarious lol. But I fear for some of these children growing when they grow up. Cause people are going to nag them about their names.

    • ohmummymia says:

      Probably they will but I can’t blame those kids because if someone is giving you a name Free or Hashtag? It’s hard to not making a jokes

  22. I don’t really mind what people name their kids. I think it’s nice to be different for a change instead of going with the names we’re all familiar with. I don’t think it’s very nice to call these names silly, unusual maybe, but not silly.

  23. As a mixed culture couple we found it difficult to find names that would work in 22 languages. My parents did not like our choice of name but I didn’t care as it is our choice. It would be boring if we were all called Paul or Jane. Thank you for linking up to #ablogginggoodtime

    • ohmummymia says:

      Yes I agree although some of those names should be banned. ho would like to be Vodka or Fish and Chips

  24. Ha ha some of these are brilliant! It’s so difficult choosing but when you find it you just got to live it!! Thanks for linking up to #familyfun

  25. I’m with you on the Apple thing, but as my name is Cherry I ‘m not sure I can say too much about it! I can imagine it’s hard to choose names – as our children are adopted we have the names someone else called them but did get tot give them middle names, so chose family names ‘Heather Marianne’ and ‘James’ which I think are pretty timeless! #ablogginggoodtime

  26. Crummy Mummy says:

    My daughter is Bluebell which gets some raised eyebrows… #picknmix

  27. Jill Conyers says:

    This is hilarious. I always imagine that the kids don’t like the “weird” names and they change them when they grow up.

  28. Alice Soule says:

    Blimey, they are some terrible names! We chose slightly unusual but still mainstream names and love them 🙂 A x #FamilyFun

  29. Each to their own, though some of these are a bit mad. They can actually stop you registering a name if it is too out there or offensive. Thanks for linking up to #Picknmix

  30. In the year my son was born there was a child in the Uk named Gandalf and I think some Thorins too so there are clearly some devoted J.R.R Tolkien fans out there! I do think it’s a big task picking a child’s name – so many things to consider! Thanks for linking to #WhatImwriting

  31. Laura says:

    Oh my this made me laugh! I can;t believe some of those names they are so funny! Thank you for sharing #friyaylinky

  32. Choosing a name was the toughest, we only decided our daughters name 1 week before I went into labour. Jamie Oliver is another who chose silly names for his children.

  33. haha some people would do anything to get noticed or different. When you are star, I kind of understand (even though Apple is just awful!) , but it’s getting silly now. My Baba has a very traditional English name , love it! #happynowlinkup

  34. Lori says:

    I’m a little old fashioned when it comes to picking names – Give the child a name that will help them succeed in life. Some of my former students started using their middle name when they went to college. One told me he couldn’t believe the spelling “Jearami” for “Jeremy” his parents chose. Thanks for the laugh and for sharing with Thankful Thursdays.

    • ohmummymia says:

      I can imagine that a lot of people had problem to spell it but it’s still better than celebrities names:D

  35. Tammymum says:

    Ha yes there certainly are some strange choices or there, but I guess the Apples and Egypts of the world do at least mix in the same circles… I agree though I felt a huge pressure in choosing names for my children. Wanting something a bit different but not strange lol. Thank you for sharing at #familyfun

  36. Bwwwwahahahah! omg these names are so funny!!! I love nicholas cage’s sons name! Kal-el! superman is awesome. tokyo and audi are my favs here too.
    No way twins should be named fish and chips hahaha thats mental.

  37. Katarzyna, it doesn’t seem quite right to me that someone who expresses her opinion as you did here quite often gets criticized for it, being told parents have “the right” to name their baby whatever they like, and yet you apparently don’t have the right to think the unusual or made-up names are “silly.” I wasn’t always thrilled, as a child, with plain old Jean for a name; but I know if my parents had given me a name like those you’ve listed here, I would have taken steps to change it by age four!
