Queejus /kwídʒəs/ (male/female)
Completely secular in origin, this new-era classic nevertheless carries a dash of Jesus’s holy pluck without letting this typically very potent flavour take over completely. But this is not the only reason Queejus has been making a substantial splash in the oft-stagnant waters of the contemporary baby-naming industry. The name’s unique structure – a tight, yet airy, pair of syllables following an always-elegant ‘Q’ – also allows it to be effortlessly at home on either boy or a girl. With so much going for it, it’s surprising allbabies aren’t named Queejus.
“Ever since Queejus saw me in my bathing suit, things have been extremely awkward.”
