So, I got a little bored today at work and was playing around on some baby websites and I found a list posted on one website with the predicted Top Baby Names of 2011. It seemed pretty normal to me until… well… I’ll let you figure out what stands out…
Top-Searched Baby Names for Boys
- Aiden (Irish, fiery)
- Max (Latin, short for Maximillian, Maxwell)
- Liam (Irish, short for William)
- Jayden (Hebrew, God has heard)
- Wmffre (pronounced OOM-fre, German, variation of Humphrey, peaceful)
- Jacob (Hebrew, supplanter, substitute)
- Jack (American, nickname for John or Jacob)
- Avery (English, elf counselor)
- Riley (Irish, valiant)
- Ethan (Hebrew, strong, firm)

Um…I consider myself fairly educated about baby names but Wmffre? Are you kidding me? I keep mentally pronouncing it Whimfree, which makes it’s even funnier.
Definitely won’t be naming my kid that which is good since it looks like everyone else will be 🙂

@sunshine_kar: I have no idea. This cannot be an accurate list. I’m on these boards everyday and have NEVER seen this name before… like EVER… I thought it would make for a good laugh today though.

Wmffre to me is like Satchel! Mia Farrow and Woody Allen’s only child together was named Satchel. He hated so much that he changed it to Ronan Seamus. I prefer his strong Irish name change to Satchel.

when i see this i think of Wimfree – the kid is going to get totally slammed at school if you name your child this
some people should be made to pass a test before naming their child
