The first true original of 2017, Zfedgit is a name wreathed in controversy. The subject of this controversy, of course, is which of the name’s two most common pronunciations should be considered canonical in the eyes of the naming community. One side argues that the first two letters should be pronounced separately, making it a three-syllable name. The other side insists the two letters should bec...

As beautiful as it is difficult to pronounce, Cthuliarde is an ode to hard work, perseverance, and the inevitable success these traits bring. Notes of eldritch horror initially grace the aural palate, followed soon after by the austere musk of legacy academia that lingers on the tongue long after enunciation. The subtle elegance of this four-syllable marvel will surely give your baby boy a head st...

One of the quarter’s most striking 4-syllable names, Marvengelist is an engaging little number that’s just perfect for a brand new baby boy. With the worldly mystique of a depression-era magician and the heady gravitas of an evangelical preacher, this name has enough oomph to make even the most boring child seem interesting. Despite everything it has going for it, Marvengelist has been only minima...

At first this almost awkward hybrid of Rodney and Robert can seem quite pedestrian, but give this name a few minutes to get its claws in you and you’ll soon be singing its praises along with thousands of parents from all around the world. Casually elegant, Rodbert is enjoying massive popularity amongst all races and classes (excluding middle-class Russian-Americans, who seem to absolutely hate it...

Chosticle is a guy you want on your side when you’re negotiating a million dollar contract, but ‘Chos’ (the accepted short form of Chosticle) is a guy who can party all night. Such is the enchanting charm of this 2011 original that critic Douga Knightly famously referred to as “A suit jacket you can wear with formal attire, OR just throw on over a Nirvana T-shirt!” Since its arrival on the scene,...

A timeless staple of affluent Middle America ever since it arrived in the mid-1960s, Duggluns is a name that simply screams wealth and class. This solid rock of a name was first coined when Spencer Cabot III, breaking three generations of tradition, attempted to name his firstborn son Douglas. It has long been debated whether it was Cabot who misspoke, or the clerk at the Arlington County Naming O...

The first of World’s Best Baby Names’ 2016 originals, Vomidink takes the old-world gravitas of Humperdinck and adds a modern flourish that will take more than just your breath away. With an almost acidic buoyancy that is the source of most of its charm, Vomidink is poised to sweep the globe in the coming months. Critics and the general public have yet to weigh in, but we’re certain that once they’...

Pertheuth is the latest in the barrage of faux-lisp names that have been exploding out of the American midwest this last year. While this name’s critics consider it to be an asinine perversion of Perseus, many parents disagree, claiming that Pertheuth improves on the elegance of its mythological predecessor in the same way that pronouncing Barcelona as “Barthelona” sounds, to some Spanish speakers...

There was a time when the name Klott conjured images of someone’s belligerent grandfather, but ever since the one and only Tom Cruise chose this name for his new baby boy early last month, Klott’s presence in the namescape has seen a massive resurgence. We should all thank Klott Cruise for reminding us that this dusty old moniker still had something to give the world. Blunt, yet elegant, this name...

If the critics are right and this name borrows too heavily from the word “restaurant,” it is surely borrowing from a gourmet restaurant in a ritzy part of town. Phonetically daunting the first time one says it aloud, this name is actually far less of a tongue-twister than it appears. This is good news, because — if recent statistics are to be believed — this is a name we’re going to be hearing a l...

"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!"
