Schmendolyn /ʃmɛ́ndələn/ (female)
According to an interview in On Babies Magazine, this name was first conceived when its creator jokingly uttered the phrase “Gwendolyn, Schmendolyn,” in an effort to shut down one of her husband’s suggestions for the name of their unborn baby girl. While the comment was made in jest, the second she uttered those three glorious syllables, both parents knew they had stumbled on something very special. That was five years ago. Today, Schmendolyn is running with the big dogs, having just displaced Michelle to be crowned the 78th most popular female name in the world.
“Hi, I’m Schmendolyn. I’ll be your server for this evening.”
