Baby Name WTF
Is it just me or does this mom seem to have namer’s remorse? It’s like she got so frustrated with the naming process that she just blindfolded herself and picked five names at random. Although, I fully respect her commitment to keeping yoonique names in the family. It’s important to carry on that tradition if you’ve got a name like Raivn. My question is: If her mother calls baby Sir Devlin Raijin Xenophon “Bud,” then what does she call Raivn? “Kelly”? “Rebecca”? “Jane”?
We’ve seen and heard a LOT of yoonique names at STFUP HQ. Remember Vadgesty Foxi Maiden and Vagena Tamphen Pohtaytar? And Sequel and
Jazzhands Jazlynn? There have been a bunch of little winners. But I think Bud Sir Devlin Raijin Xenophon just might take the cake. Especially since Raivn recognizes that his name is going to be a problem once he starts school (or learns to talk, period). Too bad she didn’t give him the headline test, once explained in the comments: ‘Find a headline and replace the name of a prominent politician, doctor, lawyer, basically anyone except a pop star, with the name you’re planning for your kid. Does it sound stupid? Then you should probably think of some other names.’ Or, blindfold yourself and “find” other names. Whatever works.
