The 12 Most Outrageous Baby Names of 2012 Are Hilariously Awful

babyWe've all looked through the top 200 baby names of 2012, and some of us have perused the top 20 pet names of 2012, but there's a new, really awesome list that you have to read, like, now. Nameberry just released their picks for the top 12 most outrageous baby names of 2012, and lord, are they somethin'. 

Take a look at what some parents decided would make wonderfully original monikers for their little bundles of joy, and judge, judge, judge away. Oh, and if you happen to be one of these nutty parents doling out nutty names, well, please explain yourself in the comments. (I'm looking at you, Uma.)

  1. Blue. Yep, Blue Ivy Carter is the Blue they're referring to, and for what it's worth, we might be seeing Blue all over the place pretty soon -- Jay-Z and Beyonce were denied a trademark.
  2. Katniss. Nameberry says this was the most-viewed and clicked-on name suggestion on their site, and it doesn't take a giant leap to assume at least one of these parents pulled the trigger and named their little girl after The Hunger Games heroine.
  3. Hashtag. These parents probably really liked trending topics on Twitter, and thus, baby Hashtag Johnson was born.
  4. Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson. Uma Thurman waited three months to publicly announce her daughter's name, and you can see why. 
  5. Zamzam. The Somali Olympian who refused to give up her religious fasting ritual inspired a lot of people, even though she came in dead last on the track. 
  6. Maxwell. I kind of like this name for a girl, but I guess some people weren't really a fan of Jessica Simpson's daughter's name.
  7. Beretta. Bristol Palin's baby daddy Levi named his daughter with Sunny Oglesby Breeze Beretta Johnston. Beretta. As in the gun.
  8. Kingsolomon. There were reportedly five boys named Kingsolomon this year, and I'm now considering Duchesskatemiddleton for my first born.
  9. Vanellope. Naming your kid after a Disney princess can be tricky, and this Wreck It Ralph name is probably the trickiest. Maybe stick with Mulan next time?
  10. Mykale and Linzi. Can I get an AMEN? Kray-zee spellings of traditional names like Michael and Lindsay made their way onto some most-popular lists this year, which, as a Lindsay, is just down-right blasphemous. Er, I guess, blazzzzfahmuzz. Ugh.
  11. Sabbath. Hard-core rocker Zakk Wylde, who's touring with Ozzy Osbourne's band Black Sabbath, decided to pay homage to the death metal group with this unusual name.
  12. Kick. Jeremy Sisto is apparently on Law & Order, but he'll forever be the Cranberry CD-losing rich kid from Clueless to me. Anyway, he named his son Bastian Kick, after looking in the dictionary for a name that wasn't a name. Clever.

There you have it -- Nameberry's most outrageous names of 2012!

What do you think of some of these names? Have any to add or subtract from the list?
