Should the baby be called Awsome or Nitte?

Why choose a strange name?

There can be many reasons why parents choose a strange, or perhaps unusual or rare name. Most parents ultimately choose a name for their child based on whether they like the name and whether it suits him or her. When parents end up choosing a strange name, it is often to stand out and give their child a unique name that few or no others have in Denmark. It is not possible to patent a name, so other babies may be called the same if it comes into fashion.

Different names hit with the celebrities

Many celebrities end up choosing different names for their children. Examples include Beyonce and Jay-Z's twins, who ended up being named Rumi (the girl) and Sir Carter (the boy). Jamie Oliver's four children have also all been given unusual names. These include Daisy Boo Pamela Oliver and Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver. The unusual names are often chosen because they have a special meaning, making them more personal and unique.
