Somebody Actually Named Their Child ‘Hashtag’
It used to be that we only heard about the interesting names that celebrities bestowed upon their children. (Hello, Apple!) However, thanks to the vastnessÂ of the internet, now when normal folks give their kidsÂ questionableÂ names we can catch wind of that too.
And, actually, the internet has a lot to do with today’s naming debacle. Apparently someone hasÂ christenedÂ their child “Hashtag Jameson.” Not much is known about little Hashtag’s folks, like whether or not they have theÂ GwynethÂ Paltrow-like resources to pay for her eventualÂ therapy. (Yes, Hashtag is a girl’s name.)
Given the speed in which internet fads come and go, it’s entirely possible by the time Hashtag makes it to elementary school none of her classmates will have heard about Twitter, possiblyÂ mitigatingÂ some of her moniker’sÂ ridiculousness.
It’s also possible, given the other misspellings in mom’s message above, that this is simply a case of an unfortunateÂ auto-correct. Which, by the way, is also no name for a baby.
