Ridiculous baby names are nothing new.
Sure, they get more ludicrous with each passing year. But it wasn't until the dawning of the of the age of the hipster that historically respected lines were crossed, and societal rules that are not meant to be broken were tossed into the compost like yesterday's avocado chia toast.
Suddenly, it seems as though our generation's parents are intentionally choosing awful baby names.
Look, we get it. You're cutting edge. You don't care about silly things like mowing your lawn or established social norms. You don't have a care in the world.
Except, it sort of seems like you actually care a lot. And while we are all for that whole "to each his own ridiculous baby name" thing, we're kind of over having to hear them spoken aloud.
So let's call a spade a spade and a ridiculous baby name a ridiculous baby name.
If you're pregnant or are considering having children at any point in the future, do our generation a great service and don't name your precious baby one of these crap names.
Spare your children, family, friends, strangers, pets, ancestors and all future generations of your impudence and just go with "John" or "Sarah." It's really not that complicated.
Here are 25 ridiculous baby names that our generation will never forgive hipster parents for... And their kids probably won't either.
Newsflash: Your child is an actual human, not a lame style of hat. Although, the baby name and hat do have in one thing common; they’re both ridiculous.
And unless your child is going to grow up to be a Blues Brother or Bruno Mars, chances are, he won’t even be able to pull off his own hat. So, way to set your kid up with some unmeetable expectations right from the start.
And you thought you weren’t going to set any expectations for your child (impossible). Yet, despite all your efforts, your child is now destined to respect reason.
Respect you? Not so much.
Seeds are not trends. They are seeds. They’ve been around for millions of years and our generation certainly didn’t create them nor make them “hip.”
If you must sprinkle everything you eat and drink with chia seeds, by all means, have a field day. But for crying out loud, leave your innocent child out of your madness.
And just wait until the “Chia Pet” regains popularity… Your child is going to hate you… even more (if that’s possible).
We’re talking about your child here, not your morning meditation mantra.
But if you happen to find your “zen” by pissing other people off, this is a perfect hipster name for your baby.
