These days we aren’t surprised by celebrities, and even some regular folk, who pick unique names for their babies, but one mom was recently left baffled by a name her friend chose for their tot, with some suggesting strange names should actually be “illegal.”
A woman named Annalise D shared on Netmums that she can’t get over the fact that a friend chose to name their child “Abcde,” which is pronounced “Ab-si-dee,” writing, "I've never heard of this name before - has anyone else?"
Needless to say, some folks had severe opinions about the strange moniker, with one writing, “It should be illegal to saddle children with names like that. Awful,” and another adding, “That is the silliest name I've ever heard - but kudos for the imaginative pronunciation. Some parents are too cruel."
But believe it or not, the name isn’t as unique as the mom may have thought. Apparently, back in 2014 there were actually 328 girls given the unusual name in the United States, with the first “Abcde” born in Hawaii in 1986.
