Is This the Oddest Baby Name You’ve Ever Heard?

A mum has raised eyebrows over her decision to name her baby after the first five letters of the alphabet. 

That’s right – Bub’s name is Abcde, pronounced Ab-Si-Dee. And no, we’re not joking.

Now I know my ABCs

A confused friend headed over to NetMums to voice her concerns over her friend’s baby name choice, revealing the chosen moniker was, indeed, the beginning of the ABCs.

“I’ve never heard of this name before – has anyone else?” the bewildered friend asked.

At least it’s not LMNOP

Naturally, the comments came pouring in, most agreeing that the name is an odd one, at best.

“If they have another they can call it Fghij, then the next Klmno,” one mum joked.

Another mum mentioned, “It should be illegal to saddle children with names like that. Awful.”

But turns out, the baby name Abcde is not illegal. Plenty of names are banned in Australia, such as Saint, Justice and Prince, but Abcde is fair game.

In fact, according to one of the commenters, “328 girls were named Abcde in the United States between 1990 and 2014.”

So there you go. If you’re stuck on baby names, turn to the alphabet.

Y O Y??? Even more crazy baby names! 

There are a few other interesting baby name options shared on the NetMums thread, including A-A (pronounced AdashA) and LightSave.
