T’Boot /təbút/ (female)
We’ve come a long way since 2007, when the “Shotgun Apostrophe” was the hottest trend in baby naming. Back then, names like B’Gelt and P’Dump had a death grip on the naming world. It was a fire that burned itself out as quickly as it started, but not without first making an indelible mark on the modern world. T’Boot is a strangely beautiful echo of this unfortunate trend, and it handily succeeds where the larger movement failed. Still a fringe name, T’boot is nevertheless working its way up the global charts one space at a time. As we’ve seen in the past, slow and steady can win the race, so don’t be surprised to see this one in the Global Top 100 in a few years time.
“Don’t talk to your grandfather that way, T’Boot.”
