Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that people are super into choosing “unique” names for their children.

Maybe they were traumatized by having to use their last initial because they were the third Jessica or Heather in their millennial classroom, or maybe they just want to stay ahead of the trends, but things do seem to be getting a bit out of hand.

But what do those parents have to say for themselves? Trust me, you’re going to want to hear it.

16. Different is one word for it.

15. No one to blame but yourself.

At least they’ve recognized the error of their ways…too late.

14. I can tell you what meaning middle school boys are going to find behind it…

Tell me you weren’t thinking the same thing.

13. Let’s hope the boys are, too.

Otherwise this is gonna be a little awkward.

10. No you’re super cringing.

I bet the OG Gronk is cringing as well.

9. I would not even know what to say.

They’re going to have a challenge learning to spell those, though.

8. Always ask yourself why.

Unless you honestly just don’t want to know.

7. Taking the long way around.

She could have just…named him after his father?

6. I smell a Twilight fan.

This might be worse than Renesmee.

5. Some of these aren’t that weird.

Have I been indoctrinated?

4. So…Julia. Got it.

No one except her teacher and her boss are going to know how it’s spelled.

3. Oh the irony.

There’s nothing you can do for this woman.

2. It’s hard to get to the end of this.

It’s like it’s never going to be over.

1. Those girls are never going to be taken seriously.

Or maybe they will, since the whole generation is named like this.

I can’t imagine being a labor and delivery nurse and having to keep a straight face when people tell you what they’re going to name their baby.

What’s the funniest thing you’ve heard someone say about their child’s unconventional name? We want to hear it in the comments!
