Welcome to the World Baby Hashtag?

November 28, 2012

When I hear a newborn baby's name, I think either one of two things:

That's cute.


Mom and Dad, what drugs were you on when you named this child?

A newborn baby girl born last night was named Hashtag Jameson. No, it's not a joke. Her first name is really Hashtag.

The social network, Twitter, is famous for using the symbol, '#,' as a signature feature on the site and calling it "hashtag."

Maybe the name stems from the parents' love for Twitter, but the mother posted a picture of the newborn on Facebook with the subject line, "Hashtag Jameson was born at 10 o'clock last nite. She weys 8pounds and i luv her so much!!!!!!"

From the mother's spelling skills, I can no longer be suprised by the baby's name.

All we need now is a little baby @ or an adorable baby Tumblr.

How do you feel about Hashtag's name?

What's the dumbest baby name you've ever heard?
