Parents today are interested -- more than ever -- in coming up with the most unusual and very cool name. Many of these moms and dads were often in classrooms full of kids with the same name, such as Sarah, Michelle, John and Matt. Perhaps they were even one of those children and grew up known as Michelle K. or Matt L. They may have the desire for their own child to stand out -- in a good way -- and have a name that everyone can remember.
Some parents take it to the extreme and use their naming powers to bestow names that are above and beyond unique. The reason for this may be the same as other parents but often the results are less than idea as the child grows up and becomes an adult.
You may have many different reactions to the names on the following list (generated from US Census data and are names of people who are -- or were -- living in the United States). You might find it disturbing, amusing or downright horrifying. If you and your partner are considering an extremely unique name, try to picture yourself as your child growing up with such a name.
Picture her using it as a child, in the classroom, as well as her as an adult, seeking a job and meeting her future spouse. Most importantly, remember to always pair it with your last name!
