Who doesn’t love coming up with baby names?

The Atlantic's Sarah Baird, whose interest in unusual baby names took her deep into a world of websites and message boards, sure does.

“What I love most about these baby names websites, and the message boards therein, is that they’re places of eternal optimism about the future,” Baird wrote. “There’s nothing but pure, radiating excitement about the days lying ahead and unabashed hopefulness for new life.”

In her article, Baird explained how some cultures believe a person's name can actually shape their future and the ways they are perceived by society. This is perhaps why many parents, especially celebrity parents, put so much thought into their children's names.

According to The New York Times, celebrities choose unique and sometimes wacky names to make themselves and their kids stand out from among the rest and have a longlasting future.
