Topics: Names, font

Friday, 8 February 2013

Jacob and Isabella have for years topped the list of the most popular baby names, but the latest trend has parents naming their newborn after fonts.

"We have a boy and a girl, Trebuchet and Verdana, who are both named after fonts," said 32 year old mother Squimmie Hutznut.

It's a burgeoning trend, said Family Studies Professor Magenta O'Lougie.

"It's becoming very popular," she said. "My co-worker Francine Smyrner named her son Calisto Garamond Smyrner"

"I know of one family who named their little girl Arial and also an African-American couple who named their daughter Arial Black," she added.

"Fortunately, I haven't heard of anyone naming their kid Wingding yet."
