People Divulge The Craziest Baby Names They've Ever Heard
Wes Hicks/Reddit

When it comes to naming children, there are all kinds of different approaches.

Some parents like to honor the legacy of a late relative, while there are those who prefer naming their baby after a revered fictional character–"Luke" (Skywalker) being one of them.

But let's be honest. Baby naming can get way out of hand, and it's the child who becomes a victim by having to live with a name they might get teased for...like "Blanket."


Curious to hear examples of what some of those might be, Redditor Sarah_Trekkie asked:

"What are some of the craziest baby names you’ve personally been witness to?"

Pity these children with these unfortunate names.

The Three Hs

"Well they weren't babies, but at the summer camp where I worked this summer. 3 brothers: Honor, Heritage, and believe it or not, Henceforth. I felt a little bad for those kids."

– fabook

It's Satisfying

"The manager at a shop near me is named Goodenough."

– Pagan-za

In Case You Missed It A Second Time

"Coworker grew up with a girl named Kelly Kelly Kelly."

– Jimbo---

Metal Head

"Jam Metallica for a baby girl."

– wordofmouthrevisited

Drugs and babies just shouldn't mix.

Pharma Baby

"I work in child welfare and it’s actually more common than you would think for someone to name their child after a drug or strand of drug they were using at the time. So with that information, MF Pitbull and Knucklehead were the two that I saw that were pretty bad. Another sad fact is when a child is immediately removed from a family (they have already been proven not to be fit parents) they’ll give them the name Baby Boy/Girl or Infant until they’re adopted."

"Edit: at the time = time of conception"

"Edit edit: 'they' as in the nursing staff, the birth parents often aren’t coherent enough or don’t care to give a name."

– spacecowboy203

Out With The Old In With The New

"I summer nannied for two kids, siblings who had been adopted by a wonderful woman who immediately changed their given names, which were Crystal and Rocky."

"Edited to add that both babies were born addicted to meth. Forgot that little nugget."

– checkitbec

It gets worse.

Going By A Gender

"Boy. True story."

– _mybloodyvalentine

What A Pair

"Noodles and papoose."

"I heard these 2 magical names uttered in a single sentence by a woman. 'Noodles! Put papoose down!'"

– MrScribz

Fantasy Household

"Thunderbird, Winter Star, Rainbow, Baby Girl."

"Culturally not that weird, but day to day life outside of the Rez, strong names to live with."

– ghastlyglittering

How Super

"I met a young man named Jor-El."

"Yes, as in Jor-El, father of Kal-El who became Superman on Earth."

– CowboySpencer

Copy That?

"Xerox."

– hand-pic-appreciator

"Were they a clone?"

– jonsconspiracy

"Nah, just a carbon copy."

– iamevilcupcake

The Pressure Is On

"I was at the park with my nephew last week and a woman started calling for her son to get off the swings. His name was Messiah. That seems like a lot to live up to!"

– BatmansKhaleesi

I would have to say one of the craziest names I've heard of was Otis Payne.

The names individually are actually pretty cool, but when you slap them together and say the full name, well, I can only imagine the amount of jokes this person had to endure.

He probably lost track of the number of times they saw someone doubling over in fake distress–clenching at a problematic part of their body–and saying his full name in jest.

We get it, we get it, "Oh this pain!"

Poor guy...

We love movies.

Movies and entertainment save the world.

But some movies can send you into a messy place.

Some topics are just a lot to handle.

That is why some films, when done right and authentically, are just too real to experience.

No need to watch that again.

When we're kids, being an adult and getting to do whatever we want often seems like the bestest, most awesome thing we could imagine.

But not everything is better as an adult.

Jobs, responsibilities, and that weird back pain you always seem to get when you sit at your desk too long are just part of getting older. A lot of things that were awesome as a kid just don't hit the same as an adult either.

Life is full of mysteries. And while we seem to be cognizant of many of life's miracles, it's obvious there is still much to discover within the vastness of our existence.

Much of the world's known facts are fascinating–some even inspiring.

But there are some facts that are just downright ominous and unsettling to an extent where ignorance is bliss.

People Debate If They'd Want The Ability To Speak Every Language Or Play Every Musical Instrument
Soundtrap/Reddit

People are often impressed by those who are multilingual–mainly because they can't imagine having the ability to communicate with others in different languages themselves.

Equally respected individuals are those who can play multiple musical instruments. Sure, playing the piano alone is impressive. But if a pianist can also play the bass and drums–essentially being their own one-person band–that is also a major wow factor.

So if you had the option to have the capacity for one or the other, which would it be?
