Call me like a closet: there is a new trend to give children names from the IKEA furniture catalog

Categories: Children

There are many ways to choose a name for a child: you can name it after a relative or a celebrity, someone randomly pokes at a list of names, some try to stand out and prefer unusual names. Now another way has been added to this list — to choose a name from the IKEA furniture catalog. I wonder how the child will feel when he finds out that he was named after a bedside table or a table.

Call me like a closet: there is a new trend to give children names from the IKEA furniture catalog

In English—speaking countries, a new trend has emerged - to choose a name for a child from the IKEA furniture catalog. This method has not yet found wide distribution, but it is already being seriously discussed on women's forums.

On the Baby Centre website, a user under the nickname LucyBC suggested names from the IKEA catalog that may well be suitable as names for children. Well, the main thing is that they sound beautiful.

Admit it, you probably thought that the names in IKEA are a random set of letters, but this is not so: there are geographical names, and various terms, and, of course, names — just a little unusual to our ear. LucyBC offered a whole list from which you can choose a name: Stefan, Tobias, Franklin, Malinda, etc. And, admittedly, they sound beautiful. One of the commentators under the woman's post noted that these names are already names.

While some parents only choose a name from the catalog, someone has already named the child after the Swedish furniture giant. In 2017, Ikea's name was on the 18,000th place in popularity.

However, Mark Hauser, founder and director of the Swiss company Erfolgswelle, which helps clients choose a child's name, says that it is better not to name children after an object or brand.

But who are we to judge these people? It is better to name a child after the wardrobe of Stolmen than to name rVF 260602 (A Biological Object of the Human Kind Voronin-Frolov, born 26.06.2002). Because of this name, the 16-year-old still does not have a passport. So we will wait for the fashion to come to Russia to name children after beds, floor lamps and kitchen tables.
