Call me like a wardrobe: a new trend has appeared to give children names from the IKEA furniture catalog

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

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

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

“To call a child after IKEA furniture at first glance may seem ridiculous, but do not reject this idea! IKEA is known for giving its products charming Scandinavian names. And many of them would be suitable as names for children, ”writes LucyBC.

Admit it, you probably thought that the names in IKEA are a messy set of letters, but this is not true: there are geographical names, various terms, and, of course, names - just a bit unusual for our ears. 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 post of a woman noted that these names are names anyway.

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

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

“Avoid words that already exist, but are not names.People will associate a child with this subject, but it does not contribute to success. For example, avoid trademarks at all costs. ”

But who are we to judge these people? It is better to name the child in honor of the Stolmen wardrobe, than the rFB BOCSB 260602 (Biological Object A man of the Voronin-Frolov family, born on 06/26/2002). Because of this name, the 16-year-old guy still does not have a passport. So we will wait when it comes to Russia to call children after beds, floor lamps and kitchen tables.
