Baby Naming Has Become A Competitive Sport

Baby Naming Has Become A Competitive Sport

Are you looking for a ‘traditional’ baby name? If so, you are not following the celebrity trend that has now turned into a ‘competitive sport’ among celebrities. Every day, a new bundle of joy arrives and celebrity parents seem to scramble for their child to have the coolest name and “traditional’ is no where near what they are coming up with.

I don’t know about you, but the ‘cool’ celebrity baby names don’t inspire me. Although, celebrities do inspire our choosing clothes, hair and even the cars we buy, so I wouldn’t be surprised if more and more people start emulating their favourite celebrities. Do you think celebrities are going too far? After all, doesn’t your name define you? Imagine sitting in a boardroom one day and your name is Daisy Boo, Rumour, Dweezel or Poppy Honey, how will anyone take you seriously?

In case you are inspired and thinking about a new ‘cool’ baby name, according to research conducted by European website eDarling, a poorly chosen baby name can lead to lower self-esteem, fewer relationship opportunities, higher likelihood of smoking and less education later in life.

Here are some of the wackiest baby names that I personally would stay away from.

Audio Science – Shannyn Sossaman & Dallas Clayton

Betty Kitten – Jane Goldman and Jonathan Ross

Of course, this list doesn’t even begin to cover all the crazy names celebrities have given their kids. Tell us what you think, are celebrities going too far when naming their children?
