It looks like 2017 is the year that we take inspiration from pop culture for our baby names.
If you're a parent to be then there's no doubt that you're probably surfing the net for inspiration for what to call your newborn. You're probably looking for something different to everyone else, but not too out there that it sounds a bit barmy.
