It isn’t always easy picking the perfect name for your child, and while folks can find inspiration in a variety of places, there are some inspirations that should be totally off-limits to a lot of moms and dads.
A new UK poll, which could easily translate here, finds that for some, famous people are a no-no when picking a name for a child. 20% of couples say they hate babies being named after celebrities.
And while there are some baby names that are continuously popular year after year, a third of moms say they would never think to name their child a moniker that makes it to the most popular name charts.
The biggest thing that will turn a person off of a baby name is if the parent already dislikes someone with that name, followed by the name being that of their partner’s ex!
