If you think kids’ names have gotten stranger, you’re right. And that trend isn’t stopping.
According to a new survey, 7% of parents say they gave their kid a made-up name, like Jaspin, Wrenlow, or Maevery. And 65% of people say they’d consider giving their kid a made-up name.
Why? The parents think a unique name will help their kid. 72% say they think the name will help their kid stand out in the crowd, and 33% think it’ll help their kid feel special.
Oh, and 2% think it’ll help their kid get the best social media accounts. Not if I go register @Wrenlow first.
