Judge Orders Parents To Change Daughter’s Unusual Name Or Else He Will

One of the toughest decisions for parents with a newborn is deciding on the youngster’s name. Both mother and father may have significantly contrasting ideas, and have the burden of picking the moniker their children will be called for the rest of their lives.

When I was born, my parents had agreed on my name months in advance, but couldn’t decide on my brother’s. They finally resolved the issue by combining their top choices for his first and middle name, but the decision didn’t come easy.

But, as it turns out, even if a couple come to a mutual agreement on their child’s name, it doesn’t mean everyone will approve, and that includes legally.

When a French couple welcomed their newborn daughter into the world this past November, they picked an unusual name that perfectly fit their third child.

Unfortunately, not everyone seemed to agree. In February, the court stepped in and ordered the pair to change their daughter’s “unique” name.

But what is the moniker that’s causing such a high level of controversy?

20 Baby Names From The ’90s That Are Making A Comeback

You can’t blame 90s teenagers for wanting to name their children after some of the most popular names from the decade they were most influenced by. Let’s be real, those names were totally awesome.

The 90s is already making a comeback in many different ways. That wonderful decade, right before the turn of the century, ended a little over two decades ago, but many of its legacies will never fade.

In terms of 90s fashion, I’ve seen a lot of girls nowadays wearing high-top sneakers, scrunchies, chokers, and denim. I can’t complain, those accessories were rad.

Even popular 90s TV shows like Roseanne have made their way back on our screens. Again, not going to complain, I loved that show!

We can’t seem to get enough of the 90s, and what better way to remind of us of such an awesome generation than naming our children one of these next baby names.

Fans Are Pretty Sure They Know What Kylie Jenner Named Her Daughter

Kylie Jenner gave birth over the weekend, confirming all the rumors we already knew. But because people are always hungry for a story, there’s now speculation as to what the name of her daughter will be, and we’ve gotta say…some theories add up.

Kylie revealed the birth of her first child on Instagram the same day of the Super Bowl, and shared her reasoning for keeping it all a secret.


A post shared by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on Feb 4, 2018 at 12:27pm PST

The new mom apologized to fans for keeping everything so private, not that she owed anyone an explanation.


Kylie also posted a video on her YouTube channel which gave a glimpse into her nine month pregnancy, and also revealed the first photos of Kim Kardashian’s newest child, Chicago West. Kylie was one of the first people to hold Chicago, and older sister Kim jokingly told her “I need to school you on what your vagina is about to feel like.”


In true Kardashian fashion, Kylie and her boyfriend, Travis Scott, are keeping their daughter’s name on the down-low. However, some eagle-eyed fans have put together a theory that actually makes a lot of sense.

Chip and Joanna Gaines Have Already Dropped Hints About Names For The New Baby

Fixer Upper hosts surprised everyone when they dropped some major news about their family. They’re expecting a fifth baby! The new addition joins siblings, 12-year-old Drake, 11-year-old Ella Rose, 9-year-old Duke and 7-year-old Emmie Kay.

While we still don’t know if baby Gaines is a boy or girl, the expectant couple has a few suspicions of their own.

An ultrasound of the budding baby had the expectant dad making bets as to the gender for their new addition.

“Chip swears he can already tell it’s a boy. Look at the little heartbeat!! 🙌🏽❤️❤️ #5,” Joanna wrote in an Instagram post featuring a sonogram.

Considering the couple’s current birth order of, boy, girl, boy, girl, a baby boy would seem like the next in line, but this little one could always break the streak.

Whether the nursery is being prepared in a masculine nautical theme or with pink birds and owls, only time will tell.

The couple however, are pretty consistent in their name selection, so that may be less of a surprise.

Next Year’s Most Popular Baby Names Make Us Wonder Just What Are Parents Thinking

If you need any proof that 2017 has been a long and bizarre year, just look at what parents are planning to name their kids next year.

Baby name website Nameberry has unveiled their list of next year’s biggest “name trends,” and while they’re predicting lots of old fashioned names will be back in style, some of the most popular new names leave us scratching out heads.

Strong women make for popular names

Ivanka Trump and Oprah Winfrey.

This is a thread we also noticed on this year’s list of popular dog names. People are taking notice of strong women this year, and plan on passing their names on to their children. Namberry predicts a bump for names like Oprah, Ivanka, Gal and Diana (those last two are from Wonder Woman).

These names don’t just sound nice, the site points out that studies reveal “serious” names help kids get into college, so Ruth, Margaret and Eleanor could all give young girls a boost.

Matilda and Bridget are due for a comeback as well.

Presidential names

President Donald Trump and former president Ronald Reagan.

While President Trump’s family isn’t growing, the excitement over last year’s election is expected to carry on into 2018. That means names of former presidents like Kennedy, Madison, Reagan and Taylor should be back in style.

For boys, expect to see more Carters, Jacksons and Tylers in the years to come.

Donald will probably see a spike too, but more creative parents will pick McKinley, Monroe, Abraham, Ulysses, Theodore or Grover.

There are even more “name trends” to look forward to, including the one letter that will be everywhere next year.

These Are The Top 10 Baby Names Of The 1970s. Is Yours On It?

While some of the popular names of the 1970s echo those of the previous years, many parents got their thinking caps on and picked names that haven’t cracked the top ten in decades.

Here are the ten male and female baby names that dominated during the age of disco:

Borrowed from Greek, Nicole means “victory of the people.”

The 70s was the first time in more than 50 years that Matthew cracked the top ten. The name, which means “Gift of Jehovah,” is derived from Hebrew. The name gained popularity due to the bible figure Matthew the Apostle.

In some cases Matthew is an anglicization of Mathuin, an Irish name meaning “bear.”

Stephanie, the female form of Stephen, has its roots in Greek. The name comes from Stefanos, which means “crown.”

William is a name that has consistently been in the top ten for decades. The classic name means “strong-willed warrior” in Old German.

The use of Heather, which is a type of small shrub native to Scotland and England, as a name in the U.S. can be traced all the way back to 1852. An article in the New York Times mentions an infant by the name of Miss Heather Campbell arriving from Glasgow. Heather can also refer to any shade of color with grey streaks within it.

As for Brian, it means “exalted one.” Derived from the Old Celtic words for “high” or “noble,” it gained popularity in the 10th century due to a King of Ireland named Brian Boru.

Angela stems from the Greek words “angelos,” which means “messenger of gods.”

No matter which variation is used, Robert is an Old English name meaning “bright flame.”

Lisa was the most popular female name of the 60s, but it dropped down a few spots the following decade. It is a short form of the name Elizabeth, which stands for “My God is an oath” or “My God is abundance” in Greek.

The name John also fell off the top five since 70s. The biblical moniker means “Jehovah is gracious.”

These Are The Top 10 Baby Names Of The 1960s. Did Yours Make The Cut?

Unlike all the rare names we encounter today (ahem, Apple), parents in the 1960s chose tame but classy monikers for their babies.

Traditional names seemed to be a favorite for boys, so the top 10 male names didn’t change too much from the 1950s. However, there are some surprises when it came to the female names.

The names were all taken from Social Security card applications between 1960 and 1969, see if yours made the cut:

Derived from German and Dutch, Jeffery stems from Godfried which means “God’s peace.” Outside of North America, Geoffrey is a popular alternative spelling.

Cynthia on the other hand has its roots in Greek. The feminine name comes from Mount Cynthus located on Delos Island. It was a by-name for goddess Artemis, who was born on the mountain.

Meaning “twin” in Aramaic, Thomas was the name of one of the apostles mentioned in the Bible.

Michelle is the feminine form of Michael, a Hebrew name meaning “Who is like God?”

A popular name after World War II, Richard means “strong ruler” in German.

As for Donna, it means “lady of the home,” a title of respect given to women in Italy.

The classic name William is derived from Old German and it means “strong-willed warrior.”

Linda, meaning “soft” or “tender,” is another name with German roots. Dubbed the trendiest name in U.S. history, Linda also means “beautiful” in Spanish and Portuguese.

Mark is a form of Marcus, a Latin name for the Roman god of War, Mars. The popular masculine name is also mentioned in the Bible.
