(STUDY FINDS) -- LONDON — Each new generation of parents are faced with a unique set of challenges that their parents before them never encountered. Times change, and society evolves, that’s certainly nothing new. However, a recent survey of 1,772 British parents finds that many may be doing their children a serious disservice all in the name of potential social media followers. In all, 7% of respondents said they’ve already given their baby a made-up name and 65% are at least willing to consider such a move.
A few examples of these new age baby names include Jaspin, Elisobelle, Wrenlow, and Maevery. Don’t see any names you like? How about Tovin or Evabeth?
Even if they themselves aren’t willing to choose such a name, a staggering 94% of respondents admitted that made up baby names are very much “in” these days.
