    Also, on the "honestly not all that bad but definitely sounds like a Stereotypical Fake Name" side of things, there is, judging by a sale sign in my neighborhood, a realtor in my area named Genie Lawless.

    i dislike the name Neveah (Heaven backwords) but it's mostly because im a salty fuck about christianity and not because i think it doesnt sound pretty.

    if that makes sense

    edit: i've only heard it pronounced neh-vey-ah but that would make it spelled backward incorrectly, so i dont know if its spelled how it sounds or if people say it differently than how it is spelled, because if you said nevaeh out loud it'd be like, neh-vay or something, which is not how i've heard people say it

    I think I've encountered it once, as the name of a succubus. I approve in this context. Otherwise it's kinda awkward.

    Reversing a word definitely tends to change the pronunciation though. 'ne-vey-ah' sounds decent, but it could also just be 'ne-vē'

    I’ve always hated Nevaeh. Like, if you want to name your kid Heaven, can’t you just name them Heaven?? How does spelling it backwards make it better in any way??

    Mormons.

    Alternatively, I guess it works for the succubus lady on the same theory as Alucard! Otherwise...

    Idk they look like they're having a good time. and if he is named after Tank from the Stephanie Plum series i especially agree, because he is a big buff marshmallow part-time bodyguard who loves cats

    i doubt that is the inspiration, but it would make me happy.

    anyway, i HOPE they are a loving family who just has a sense of humor about naming kids and I hope little Pineapple is ok. at least its a (second) middle name

    (also i watched the movie Superstar on the request of a friend in middle school and it was very fun)

    (though that is probably also not the inspiration)

    After learning about Mormon naming customs, Renesmee makes A LOT more sense. It could've been worse.

    I hope this isn't something anyone has actually done, but I wouldn't be surprised; on the show Dinosaurs, there is in fact an episode where the baby is inflicted with the legal first name of "Baby".

    I'm absolutely certain there have been people named Baby. Someone probably thought it would be cute or something.

    I haven found any proof with a Google search but people have tried and succeeded to name children much worse

    For a long time it wasn’t uncommon for kids to be named Baby Girl/Boy, or just Baby Lastname for a few days or weeks (or longer) until their parents came up with something better. That period of not necessarily naming a baby until you knew for a fact it wasn’t going to be a stillborn overlapped with universal birth certificates by a little bit. My grandma’s birth certificate reads Baby Girl Sorensen.

    I mostly just hope it’s not really used as an Actual Given Name. It definitely makes sense as a placeholder (especially given the historical context there), but it would be a pretty cruel one to like...actually bestow permanently upon a child.

    These idiots keep going we're going to have legislation made about baby names so we'll have to stick to Steve and Mary and the like, and then we'll have to overthrow the government so we can eventually give our children cool sci-fi names. or apocalypse names. or a sci-fi dystopian name if Musk manages to make space-indentured-servitude a thing

    I keep getting ads for ac comic with a Princess Athanasia. Part of me wonders if it's just uncommon? Or it's an Asian-writer-doing-a-Euro-adjacent-worldbuilding
