Funny Factoid – Unique Baby Names

Sometimes you see something and it is so bizarre that you think it cannot be true – which means that it probably is true.  This from Brainmail.

In 2003, 24 children were named Unique in America but only one was called Xerox.
Ref: Sunday Times (UK). 

A quick Google search also identified that there is an increasing use of brand names as first names – with records showing that in 2000, 49 children were named Canon, followed by 11 Bentleys, and five Jaguars.  There are also Camrys and Timberlands. 

This could be brand-consciousness gone nuts – or a reversion to traditional approaches of naming your child about the events occurring around the birth or conception (as in Two Dogs or Running Bear, etc).
