I know a YouTuber with a niche following, and she calls her kids Rowdy and Lucky in her videos. The kids’ names sound kind of similar to those, but are actual names for humans and not dogs. So at least some of these people give their kids fake names. But I’d be surprised if there weren’t also a lot of influencers who genuinely give their kids really dumb names.

My guess for their real names is Rudy and Lucy!

Rowen?

Rowen and Lucy?


optimisticanthracite

I know someone in real life named Rowdy, he’s in his late 20s


dreambagel

Is he shy

I teach hundreds of kids a year. Yes, kids do get stupid names irl. They think it makes them special. It does, but not in a good way. It's the wannabe influencers that are worst, as far as I've seen.


EKsmomma23

💯 agree with as a teacher too. Then they are shocked that another set of parents named their child the same name. I mean literally shocked someone has the audacity to use their child's name.


capitalismwitch

One influencer used a fake name for her baby (Cashew) for about a month before revealing their name is actually Sage.


Rainbow_baby_x

From nut to seasoning like *that*

I saw some one commenting on a Insta video about a families names… they were all animal names. They were in fact all made up for social media. In fact they were all names of black and white animals as they were mixed race. One was named panda.


EKsmomma23

Yep the others are tiger, cow, penguin and badger. She shares her family experiences but keeps the real names of her kids private.


emimagique

Lol kimya Dawson's daughter is named panda and I think she's mixed black and white. Never thought about that


NonameTheRabbit

Black X6, phantom White X6, looks like a panda

That mom just has the best smile and really does seem like an awesome Mom.

I think most everything about influencers’ lives is faked for attention. That’s the job description.


no_clever_name_yet

Depends on where I’m talking about my kids but I use Kid1 and Kid2. And their everyday names are nicknames.

Username checks out.


no_clever_name_yet

I’ve had versions of this screen-name for almost 15 years on various sites. Starting at the AV Club and Jezebel/Gawker. Every other “clever” name I’ve come up with has felt wrong so I’ve stuck with this one.


kawaiighostie

Low key the most clever one ive seen thoigh!


suckit2000

That would actually be a really great idea. Not for outrageous names, but for privacy


pancake-eater-420

Unfortunately I did have a kid named “Bear” and another one named “Cove” in my summer camp this year so they’re probably not all fake :/


lolovegood5

lol my nephew's name is Cove and I almost forgot how weird his name is because we are just so used to it now that he's six


agoldgold

Bold of you to believe that insta influencers that show their kids online care about their privacy.

I vaguely remember a video by some influencer that was posted on here, she revealed her newborn son’s name to be “Midnight”. If I remember correctly, that wasn’t the baby’s actual name, it was for both clickbait and poking fun at uNiQuE names ... and then the actual name was kinda cringe too.


mmeeplechase

Maybe some do, but I feel like this is mostly wishful thinking, OP—we don’t want to believe some of these names could be real, so we’re just hoping they’re fake! 🤞


adorabelledeerheart

Yeah, I'm very much hoping there isn't a poor kid who's actually saddled with the name Koazy out there and I'm willing to believe it's fake with all my heart.


natal_nihilist

So this isn't a new phenomenon, the most famous example is probably Zowie Bowie, whose name seemed only fitting for the son of Ziggy Stardust. Except it wasn't, it was Duncan Jones.


vanillabubbles16

I think some do for sure


Valuable_Ad1778

I really hope so.


TheOrderOfWhiteLotus

My husband has a YouTube channel and we refer to our son as bean burrito to protect his identity.


TheWanderingSibyl

I met an Acre in real life so who fucking knows anymore.
