Now that hipsters have settled in for good, it makes sense they’d name their little hipster offspring with equally unique, hipster names. Would you choose a name from this list? We asked the question and it doesn’t seem like you would.

Now that hipsters have settled in for good, it makes sense they’d name their little hipster offspring with equally unique, hipster names. However, a true hipster would most probably create their own name, something the world has never dreamed of. It seems names such as Brooklyn and Noah are old news, and even Milo and Stella don’t quite crack it.

We must admit, we love that some old South African favourites such as Nico, Zane, Suzette and Zola made the cut. Here’s the latest list of hipster names, from fitpregnancy.com.
