Maniaca /mənájəkə/ (female)


When this name is mispronounced, it tends to be as: “maniac a.” This, of course is an utter butchery of the name’s true pronunciation, which is exactly like that of the word “maniacal,” but without its closing consonant. The fact that this is literally the only bad thing about this name is one of the reasons you can expect your new baby’s daycare to be filled with Maniacas. More than just a thing to call your child, though, this name is a testament to our society as a whole. That this name can be in the Global Top 100, despite having the word “maniac” featured so prominently shows that we — a society that has historically demonized those afflicted with mental illness — have grown.

“Haven’t you done enough, Maniaca?”
