As the year 2013 comes to a close, many best of and worst of lists have been created. Headlines of the popular baby name lists have already been seen, but how about the "extraordinary"? According to E!Online, on December 29, 2013, there has been no stop to the ridiculous and bizarre choices some folks make when naming their children. "Pepsi" came in at #17 on the list of 100 The Most Extraordinary Names of 2013. What was number one? The number one extraordinary baby name chosen was "Tiger". Not only is this the word used to label a ferocious animal, but a golf turned celebrity who has questionable ethics and morals.
While celebrities are well known for naming their offspring with peculiar names, this trend appears to be spreading, and showing no signs of slowing down. Bounty.com has the list of extraordinary baby names divided into girl gender and boy gender - but most of these names are entirely neutral.
The top five names for boys are as follows,
While these names have a neutral sound to them, Victory and Prosper are a quite interesting addition to unusual baby names. However unusual though, they make sense - somehow - in a "radiating positivity" vibe. Each name seems to convey strength and power in the usual fashion of males names.
The top five names for girls are as follows,
Unlike the boys list, the girls names are a bit lame. With a non traditional blend, a child named Summer-Ray could only hope for an abbreviation in her future. Not one of the names on this top five show promise for a extraordinary life. Just plain strange names on the verge of uniqueness.
Is the extraordinary naming trend for babies everywhere? Leaving the likes of celebrities, these names may be coming to a town (or baby) near you.
