Unusual baby names of 2012


Of all the factors that parents consider in picking a name for their child, one floats consistently to the top: Picking a unique name.

As you can see from the list, some parents did a bang-up job. Each of the unusual names was given to at least two children – so it’s not a fluke!

Americus, Navaryous, Couture, Shoog, Cobain, Popeye…I think we can we agree that, in 2013, if you give your child any of these names, you immediately forfeit that kid to Child Protective Services because you are obviously an unfit parent.
