Some parent find it difficult to give their baby’s name while some don’t even bother about that and they give them whatever names come to their mind, just as we reported it sometimes ago about most unusual baby name (hashtag, facebook, Juju, etc), top baby names prediction for 2013 and that of the hottest baby name of 2012.
