Pregnant hipster: this book is for you!

If your life is defined by peculiar, particular, niche interests and a general sense of apathy it might be difficult to find a baby name to feel enthusiastic about. But never fear, hipster parents-to-be, Miek Bruno and Kerry Sparks have written the ultimate guide to unique and ironic baby names, “Hello, My Name Is Pabst: Baby Names for Nonconformist, Indie, Geeky, DIY, Hipster and Alterna-Parents of Every Kind.” The book is hilarious (and is available on pre-order), but in spite of its comedic quality, it also somehow manages to function as a legitimate resource for creative baby names. Here are some of the names that I liked best, in 25 handy categories like “Names that will grow into a moustache” and “Names for your future expat.” Enjoy! (But not too much.)
