The Weirdest Old-Fashioned Baby Names Still Used Today


Choosing a name for your baby is one of the most important things you will do throughout the course of your pregnancy. No, it has nothing to do with the health and well-being of your baby or you. But it does have everything to do with your baby’s future. The name you choose is going to provide just a little direction in that child’s life. How so? Well, if you give your child a horrible, awful, no good name, he or she is going to be made fun of and tortured throughout their school days. This could make your child exceptionally confident and immune to criticism, or it could cause your child to have a traumatic childhood. If you pick a strong, bold name for your child, it could help determine the way people treat him or her in terms of likability and destiny. It might not be something others believe in, but the naming process really does have an effect. And there are some old-fashioned names that are still used today that are so weird you might wonder why anyone would even allow the name to be used anymore.


The name itself is not bad, but it’s one that has been ruined just a little bit thanks to the big red dog. Those who use this name today are bound to see that their kids are made fun of a bit for being a dog or being named after a dog.


It’s weird in general, because it just doesn’t make that much sense. However, the name has been really weird since the sea witch from the Little Mermaid was given the moniker. Now people associate the name with a mean witch who wants to capture everyone’s favorite redhead.


It’s a name for a little girl that’s been used a lot in the past and it’s being used a lot more today. What makes this name weird is that it just doesn’t make any sense. It’s not pretty and it’s not something that’s been made famous, so we just don’t get it.
