D’Krunk /dəkrə́ŋk/ (female)

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...

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...

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,...

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 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...

No one expected Centigraham to succeed, especially after the immediate and catastrophic failure of Kilograham, a name which was conceived under the incorrect belief that weight could be added to the featherlight classic, Graham, by ham-handedly tacking a fairly large unit of metric measurement onto it. Oddly enough, it seems the humility of its lesser denomination has allowed Centigraham to mesh s...

Continuing the hot new trend of using inappropriate punctuation as yet another way to render a name ‘unique,’ Crundy? is blasting through the global charts with reckless abandon. This brand new name may be in the form of a question, but the naming public’s united response has been a resounding ‘yes!’ The critical response, of course, has been somewhat tepid. While most reasonable critics admit tha...

Aside from a slight variation in spelling, Chiselle and Giselle are identical in almost every way. Phonetically, the only difference between the two is that one voices a sibilant fricative that the other does not. Despite all this similarity, however, one name is clearly superior to the other. Chiselle is the obvious victor, maintaining its ties to the speed and grace of the majestic Gazelle while...

Every so often, you come across a name whose value is not immediately apparent. Some of these names are just as worthless as they seem: empty, meaningless, boring, etc. Others, if you scratch below their surface, can surprise you with all they have to offer. Chodi, for example, is a rather forgettable variation of Jodi that does very little to excite or tantalize. But don’t be so quick to discount...

Abner became popular in the 1930s, when the the comic strip Li’l Abnerbrought the name into mainstream American consciousnes. The name was a mainstay all the way through to 1977, when the strip ended its run. With the arrival of Crabner, the decades-long void left in the world of baby naming by Abner’s departure has finally been filled. Some critics have even claimed that Crabner surpasses its anc...

"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!"
