There are certain baby names out there that make you pause and think, "What in the world?" It's like these parents combined the most basic of names to form an entirely new name, and you can't help but feel for the children.
Forget the celeb craze of strange names like Apple or North West. I'd take either of those over a name like Stott any day. Stott. How is it real?
One woman looked at her kid's yearbook and saw some absolutely outrageous things...
Allison Czarnecki couldn't sleep and decided to tweet out the most insane kids' names in her son's Utah middle school yearbook.
via: TwitterYou heard the woman - buckle up. These are truly bonkers. Wonderful, but bonkers.
Yes, there is a child out there somewhere named "Kirtlyn."
via: TwitterThose are actual names parents decided would be a good idea. Taeber! Syrie! Madisyn, with that y. Why, Madiysn, why?
Gambit is an interesting choice for a first name.
via: TwitterWhat's the nickname? Gamby? You know that super preppy girl you grew up with in high school who named her kid Braedee? These make that name look great.
Is Taeg pronounced Tag?
via: TwitterPeople from Utah really love their use of the letter 'y.' Evidently, they'll make sure it can be squeezed into any name.
Maddyson is a new level of interesting.
via: TwitterNot only is Madison spelled with a y, but there it goes with a double d usage. Honestly? I'm here for it. Keep reading for more insane names!
Stott is the best name in existence.
via: TwitterThere is no name better than Stott. Oaklie is a close second when it comes to the cringe factor, though. Celebs clearly aren't the only ones branching out on strange names for their children.
Paizley and Bayleigh and Avorie...
via: TwitterIf a name doesn't end in "-eigh, -ey or -ie"...is it even a real name? If I was named Paizley, you'd better call me Paiz and nothing else.
Even autocorrect is confused about the spelling of these names.
via: TwitterMacLaine is a great name. Maklain? Even better.
Maysan. Tayxa. Katlyn. It's like they're too good to be true.
via: TwitterIf you're worried whether these kids will have a tough time with these names, don't stress. It seems all of Utah is pretty much here for the trend.
Okay, this name is actually pretty genius.
via: Twitter"Felecya" is the proper way to spell Felicia. Didn't you know? Don't worry, there are still more crazy names to be heard.
Of course, there were skeptics.
via: TwitterAnd people who took offense at Czarnecki tweeting out names. But that didn't stop her.
Czarnecki headed to the high school graduation next and the names were, as she pointed out, even better.
via: TwitterA person named Pariss does not put up with BS from anyone. Two s's? Get out of here, you do not want to mess with Pariss.
A cowboy named Cinch sounds like the title of a Tennessee Williams play.
via: TwitterWearing a belt buckle to school every single day is bold. You have to respect it.
Britlee is a pretty cool name.
via: TwitterIt's a Brittany fake-out. You think someone has a popular name but you're wrong. It's Britlee, get it right.
If Kennidee doesn't wear sweaters tied over their shoulders and a polo shirt, are they even a real person?
via: TwitterThey also most definitely own a yacht. Even if they're just a kid - somehow, Kennidee owns a yacht. The next names can't be real.
Amberlee, Kaylee, Sydnee. You can never have too many e's.
via: TwitterJust when you thought you had enough e's in a name, you thought wrong! If your name doesn't end with two e's, do you even live in Utah?
Okay, MacGyver is awesome.
via: TwitterUtah people love wild spellings for baby names. Hey, you can't fault them for taking chances.
Others began to pipe in with the crazy names they've heard as well.
via: TwitterJustin Case is always ready for anything! Poor kid. How is he ever going to live that down?
Don't mess with Ryson, y'all.
via: TwitterYou have to wonder if the parents thought about the toxic Ricin at all. Probably not.
If you're named Sunshine Marijuana, are you allowed to ever be angry or uptight?
via: TwitterWhen you have the most mellow and happy first names, it's a lot of pressure to be a cool person. No thanks. Leave me alone with my boring old name, please. The next name is so 2018.
I wonder if she only likes expensive things?
via: TwitterAnyone named Tesla clearly has a palette for the finer things in life. Can you imagine a Tesla dining at McDonald's? The very thought is preposterous.
What a delightful name!
via: TwitterSaying "Good morning Happiness" every day just has to put you in a good mood. While not the most conventional name, it's quite the charming one.
Airwrecka is fabulous.
via: TwitterThe spelling of Erica is done. It's over. Airwrecka is the only spelling that exists.
Spyder is pretty intimidating.
via: TwitterHawk and Creed sound like mountain folk who live in the forest. They know how to survive.
These might be the winners.
via: TwitterThe idea of naming your child exactly where they were conceived is kind of brilliant. Rainy Field has to become a folk singer, there's no other path for that child. Keep reading for more unique and strange names.
via: TwitterShocked they didn't go with McKarty. Or Taylee with the classic double e.
Now this is just absurd.
via: TwitterIt's great to have the freedom to name your kids whatever you want, but really? AM and PM?
"Amazing kid though."
via: TwitterThat's a good disclaimer when your child is named Arson. Hopefully, he stays out of trouble.
This is hilarious.
via: TwitterForget Kyle. Are you Kyler or Kylest?
If Kyler wasn't interesting enough, spell it fancy.
via: TwitterPoor guy has to go through life explaining to people how to pronounce his name. Sure, all of these names are pretty out-there, but they're definitely not boring. That has to count for something, right? Share this with your friends who need some baby name inspo!
