Everyone’s heard one of those out there baby names and thought – whyyyy??

Why do parents insist on doing this to their kids?

Celebrities are the worst offenders – with Kylie Jenner the latest celeb to cause a stir with her new bub’s name.

The star posted a photo of the little one’s hand wrapped around her thumb on Instagram and captioned the image “Stormi”.

Stormi is one in a long list of wacky Kardashian names, with others like Dream, Saint, North, Chicago and Reign.

So really, Stormi will fit in nicely!

And with Khloe Kardashian expecting a baby – no doubt there’ll be another bizarre name thrown in the mix!

You can sort-of understand why celebs do it – it’s all about the publicity and social media likes, right?

But what about regular parents? What’s their excuse?

It’s all good and well to want a name that is different – fully appreciate that.

But – there’s got to be a line right?

It seems as though many parents just don’t want to share names with other people.

Therefore, they choose outlandish names for their kids, many of which go beyond the measures of creativity.

Some other crazy celeb kid names include Apple, Buddy Bear, Bluebell Madonna, Destry, Pilot Inspektor, Zuma Nesta Rock, Moxie Crimefighter, Kal-El, Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily, Fifi Trixiebell – the list goes on.

Naming your kid after car brands seems to be a thing these days too – like Bentley, Audi, Kia, Aston, Royce and Chevelle.

So bizarre.
