Find out your hipster baby name
There are people who think wacky celebrity baby names like Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence and Bear Blu are a little bizarre, and there are folks who sniff that calling your kid Luna or Bear really isn't all that unique or interesting after all. (In fact, their best friend's cousin's neighbour named her kid -- her girl kid, by the way -- Bear, like, five years ago.) And then there are the rest of us.
Whether you're really, honestly searching for outlandishly unique baby name inspiration or just want a good chuckle at the whole my-baby's-name-must-be-so-cool-and-unique-that-no-one-has-ever-thought-of-it-before mandate, you'll love Miek Bruno and Kerry Sparks' new book Hello, My Name Is Pabst: Baby Names for Nonconformist, Indie, Geeky, DIY, Hipster and Alterna-Parents of Every Kind.
