Parents Choose Wackier Name For Kids

Melbourne: Parents are choosing wackier names than ever for their kids, thanks to the internet, a study reveals.

The Netmums research has also found that UK's oddest names include Rimini, Zuanna, Stargazer and Orchid for girls and Reef, Clavier, Laarn, Ocean, Nirvana and Blue for boys, the Sunreported.

The website's founder Siobhan Freegard said that the Internet is making it much easier for parents to research unusual names.
They even put up polls for the names.

The survey of 6,000 also revealed that reality star Chantelle Houghton has the least-liked girls name.

Jayden was the least liked amongst the boys.

But the top trend seems to be that of keeping retro names that has been sparked by celebrities like singers Lily Allen and Dido who called their kids Ethel, Marnie and Stanley, and Bruce Willis who named his daughter Mabel.

Four percent of the people picked a tough name for their son such as Axl or Diesel.

One in five think that normal names sound dull.
