First up, we have the name “Züm.” Yes, babies are being named after the videoconferencing platform that has become a staple of the pandemic era. Some parents hope naming their child Zoom will grant them a lifetime license to Microsoft Office, something the company denied following the circulation of a viral video earlier this year.
Next on the list is “Corantine.” That’s right, parents are actually considering naming their child after the time they spent locked in their homes due to the global health crisis. It’s unclear whether this name will stick around long-term, or if it will fade into obscurity.
But the real showstopper of 2022 baby names is “Fannie.” Yes, you read that correctly. The year 2022 has been dubbed the year of the ass by some and people have started naming their newborns accordingly. It’s unclear whether this name will catch on across the pond, as there it means something entirely different.
Other notable names that made the list include “One-Four,” “Twit,” and “Crystal Shanda-Lear.” It’s safe to that 2022 was a wild year for baby names. Who knows what kind of monikers we’ll see in the coming years? One thing is for certain: these kids are going to have some interesting stories to tell.
