Weird baby names

Weird and unusual baby names are becoming more and more popular. With the rate at which celebrities are giving their kids the oddest names, it seems like it won’t be long before everyone is doing it. But there’s a good reason why you should not give your baby a weird name.

Although there’s nothing wrong with using a unique name for your baby, it might have an adverse effect on his or her future life.

Why you shouldn’t give your baby a weird name

According to a 2012 study, a kid’s (or adult’s) name can have an impact on what others think of him or her. It was found that the more unusual a name is, the more likely the chances of that person being regarded as dangerous or risky. It was also found that statements were more believable if they were made by people with simple names.
