From “Yahoo” to “@” to “Talula Does The Hula From Hawaii,” the names people carry nowadays can cause ripples of laughter when spoken, called, or written. Imagine calling someone “Yahoo” – the person who hears it would scarcely guess that it is a person’s name, not a cry of jubilation!
For modern parents, is choosing the right name for their baby a moment of epiphany, or just a spur of the moment realization? Surely, naming your own flesh and blood requires some thought—but then, how in the world do couples come up with weird names for their newborns? From the unusual names that celebrities choose for their kids to the names that are modeled after iconic characters and people, we find them rather amusing. This list of five weirdest names includes:
- Sage Moonblood: This double-barreled name undoubtedly is the weirdest of all the celebrity names around. Sage Moonblood is actor Sylvester Stallone’s son. We wonder what ol’ Rambo was thinking when he named his son. So, is there a Red Indian connection somewhere?
- Oindrilla: Among unusual girls’ names, this seems to be the corruption of Cindrella, perhaps? It certainly is no improvement on the original. Oindrilla seems more like the name of Cinderella’s stepsister.
- Gaylord: The funniest name of the lot, this name not only seems like a relic from the past but also has “gay” connotations. A name like Gaylord in the 21st century is bound to make the individual the butt of jokes.
- Apple: Actress Gwyneth Paltrow named her daughter Apple. We wonder whether she was inspired by the fruit, or by Steve Jobs’ success. What next?
- Scout: This name is more suitable for a dog. Certainly, not an ideal name for a little boy, young man, or grandfather, by any stretch of the imagination.
Often, kids with the funniest names become the target of jokes at school. Parents really need to think twice before they christen their children with a really strange moniker. The kids will have to live with these odd names for life, or at least until they are old enough to change them.
