The name Zzyzx has to take the cake for the strangest baby name in the world. Daily Mail reported that an eBabyNames.com survey found that the name Zzyzx, pronounced “Zay-Zix”, is the strangest baby name ever.

Zzyzx is a made-up name by Curtis Howe Springer. He claimed that Zzyzx would be the last word in the English language. Curtis named a mineral springs and health spa, Zzyzx, in California in the United States.

We don’t think the late Curtis ever thought someone out there would name his or her child after his word creation. According to US Social Security Administration records, five babies have been given the Zzyzx name in the last 15 years alone.

But if weird is appealing to you and you prefer a trendy name, these are the most popular for this year so far:

Girls:

Scarlett

Audrey

Zo

Elizabeth

Layla

Boys:

Gatlen

Ezra

Finn

Bennett

Emmett

And the weirdest names we’ve come across?

Puppy

Vogue

Hurricane

Dragos

Swag

Hotdog

Veyoncé

Rocket Man

Freak

Jermajesty

And then there was a man in central China who wanted to name his son “@” but was denied permission because the name can’t be translated into Mandarin as the law demands. Talk about weird.
