'Kindergarten 2026 roll call': From Covid Leigh to Kah'Rona to Pandemica

accreditation
Noooooooo!
Noooooooo!

We thought we heard it all when news of the parents who named their twin babies Covid and Corona broke, but that was before Jessica Rabon uploaded her now viral video to Facebook. 

Shared more than 50 000 times, Jessica's video is titled "Kindergarten 2026 roll call" and features a few names inspired by the times.

The names include Covid Leigh, Kah'Rona, Pandemica, Quarantina, and Vyrus. 

Since name inspiration has driven many a parent to give their children all sorts of names, all we can say is let's just keep these names as fictional as they were intended to be, please parents, please.
