“Choosing a name for your kid sucks,” say authors Miek Bruno and New York-based Kerry Sparks in the introduction of their funky new book Hello, My Name is Pabst: Baby Names for Nonconformist, Indie, Geeky, DIY, Hipster, and Alterna-Parents of Every Kind.
This book is full of funny, quirky suggestions, perfect for parents looking for an out-of-the-norm name. Chapters like “Names that Fit into Skinny Jeans” (think Pippi, Slim, and Tinsy) make for a hilarious and charming read, and, no matter what you’re looking for, you’ll find moniker suggestions that are original and unique. Big Apple foodies can try a name that “Looks Good Painted on a Food Truck,” like Schnitzel; those whose child seems likely to occupy Wall Street child can consider the likes of Protest.
For the hipsters out there—we’re looking at you, Brooklyn—names like Elle, Bedford, and Meeker beckon. Plus, the book is complete with “tipsters” for coming up with your own, one-of-a-kind baby names. No use having the third Theo or the sixth Sophia in your child’s kindergarten class. Find a name you can call your own.
