D’Krunk /dəkrə́ŋk/ (female)

Please reload

The last sixteen years have been something of a slow burn for names that feature an apostrophe. With the recent appearance of D’Krunk on the naming scene, however, it looks like the next decade or so will be a veritable apostrophic inferno. Where names like P’Dump and T’Perch have used the apostrophe with disappointing results, D’Krunk combines economy and elegance to produce a uniquely punchy bou...

Rumour has it this 2016 name was first coined in a New England elementary school when a girl named Theresa was mercilessly teased for having a particularly fragrant link of chorizo in her lunch. While we discourage bullying in all its forms (particularly name-based bullying), this ugly incident has paradoxically given us something quite beautiful. Combining the saintly calm of Theresa with the ric...

Five-syllable names are generally considered far too unwieldy to make it onto the global charts, but this recent entry from the Hyper Futurist tradition has just proven to the naming community – and the world at large – that rules were meant to be broken. Having risen to 20th place on the Global Top 100 after only eighteen months on the market, Politrixia is now poised to move into the the to...

Elements of Sarah, Cheryl, and — to a lesser extent — Meryl combine to form this fantastic two-syllable delight that has just named their “Hot Pick for February.” Though the name has been around for several years already, it has gone largely unnoticed in the naming community until recently. This sudden burst of popularity can no doubt be attributed to HBO’s popular television series,...

We’ve come a long way since 2007, when the “Shotgun Apostrophe” was the hottest trend in baby naming. Back then, names like B’Gelt and P’Dump had a death grip on the naming world. It was a fire that burned itself out as quickly as it started, but not without first making an indelible mark on the modern world. T’Boot is a strangely beautiful echo of this unfortunate trend, and it handily succeeds w...

The jazzy, snare-drum rhythm of this name makes its lengthy four syllables feel like only three. A modern take on the timeless classic, Angelica, Chinchillica has parents around the country (and the globe) praying for their babies to come out female. Having watched this name rise from 72nd to 45th place in the Global Top 100 last week, we wouldn’t be surprised to see it in the top 20 when the...

This name, created by the team at California’s premier naming house, San Angelay Naming, has been breaking records left and right since its release at the opening of the trading day this morning. It’s easy to see what all these parents are getting so excited about. Velvitch’s sultry brand of charm is captured quite economically by its promotional tag-line: “Like scratching an itch with velvet.” Wh...

This name was awarded 1st prize in the Most Original Name category at NameCon in San Antonio this year. The name’s designer, Flitzy Klein, prefaced its grand unveiling with a now-infamous speech in which she claimed that contemporary female names shouldn’t necessarily be dainty or “ladylike” (if you’ll pardon the antiquated term). Chuggrah was the perfect name with which to make this point. Bold a...

Despite what many of today’s parents seem to think, a child’s name should not be seen as an opportunity to express ones own personality at what may end up being the child’s expense. In fact, a name should be approached as what it really is: the single greatest gift you will ever give your child, a gift that will be with them from when they first open their eyes in the cradle to when they’re haunti...

The delicate autumn beauty of Christa is not entirely lost in this sinewy variation, though it does admittedly take a back seat to the thick, turkey-neck chewiness that is this name’s showcase feature. An instant earworm from the first time one hears it, this is a name that really gets stuck between the teeth. While a vocal minority of critics objects that the name sounds “gross,” we do not share...

"Pam is a family name and when I had our little girl, I thought I'd have to settle on Pamela until I heard Pamples. All the convenience of Pam, none of the ugliness of Pamela. It's perfect!"
