So with our current political crisis, a general lack of human decency and, of course, imminent climate catastrophe, now is probably not the best time to be spawning. However, biological urges can be hard to overcome, and hey, babies are cute, right? So if you're having a baby, or planning to have one any time in the near future, why not take this quiz to find the perfect name for your little angel?
Think about it: your baby's name will stay with them for their entire life (unless they change it by deed poll or end up going by a cool nickname, but that's so 1930s and 1990s respectively). That's why it's of the utmost importance that you make the correct decision. Too many parents have fallen prey to choosing names that are zeitgeisty but don't last; equally, parents sometimes choose old fashioned names to honour their family or out of a misguided sense of fashion and then condemn their child to a life of outdatedness.
Threading that needle of finding something long-lasting is a difficult job, and that's why choosing a name for your bundle of joy and poop can be a stress-inducing experience. Thankfully, we're here to help. We've picked out a selection of excellent names that will always seem hip and never go out of fashion - there are no Zaquarys or Eustace B. Gordon IIIs here. But that's only the first step.
Next, we need to figure out which of these names is ideal for your future dumpling, so take our quiz and let's make a baby (name for your baby. Anything else would by unhygienic)!
About Eighties Kids ▼▲
Founded in 2016, Eighties Kids started small. Beginning as a blog posting on 80s and 90s life as well as the movies, music and television of the era, Eighties Kids has in a short space of time exploded in scope and ambition. Operating out of Eighties Kids HQ in sunny Ilkley, in the North of England, today a growing team of writers produces original content day in and day out for one of the best new nostalgia sites on the web.
With the site also growing beyond its original remit, the Eighties Kids team now covers not just trivia from the 80s and 90s, but pop culture of all decades that’s of interest to children of the 80s, 90s and beyond. From shocking and obscure fact posts on your favourite movies and bands, to quizzes on classic TV shows and film franchises, to picture galleries on celebrities from past and present, Eighties Kids is here to take you down memory lane, test your knowledge of classic pop culture and maybe even occasionally blow your mind.
