The most outrageous baby names of 2013Yes, they really did name them that
-- By Pam Satran, Nameberry
As you might imagine, most of these names are pretty far out on the ledge. There are lots of kree8tiv spellings of more conventional names: Finlea and Massyn, Elynne and Karsan. There are names from around the world freshly introduced to the US: Junhao and Mokshith and Motoki. There are original combo names -- Charlotterose and Marcusjames -- and there are new word names and place-names and surname-names -- Revelation and Tokyo and Thoreau. And there are even a couple of wonderful old names – Hypatia and Thisbe, Romilly and Calisto -- revived for the modern world.
But all these newborn names look downright sedate compared to a handful of choices it's hard to believe were given to even one baby, much less five....or ten....or 63.
They're the Most Outrageous New Baby Names of 2013. Here are our picks for the wackiest of the newest, along with the number of babies who received each last year.
