I could see parents considered "lazy" if they named their kids "Boy" and "Girl."

I don't think it's laziness at all. I think they just want a unique name for their special children.

Some parents aren't thinking to far ahead. That child has to grow up with that name they are given, kids in school are known for making fun of other kids with strange names. Then you have those names that you can't pronounce or you can't spell.

Every few years the popular names change. Those parents that named their kid Hitler?? There had to be something wrong with those parents.

Parents wanted their child name different from others.

To add uniqueness to the "name pool". Sometimes it's a good name, sometimes it's bad.

The worst name I've heard so far is:  La-a
The story goes, the teacher asked how to say the little girl's name to the mother and the mom said, "It's La dash ah....the dash ain't no silent, Ladasha."
Terrible!

I'm a parent of 3 whom all have unique names.  Some traditional but extensive in the sense where it's generational.  Another where it's just down right unique.  And my 3rd has a Russian name.  We wanted the names to stand out and really match our kids personalities...kinda hard to determine that when first laying eyes on them...but as they grow up and ya look at them...there name matches just right.

Some people like to be unique, and what is considered weird is definitely subjective. However, they were having this conversation on the radio a while ago and asked people to call in with unique names they have heard or considered. One person called in talking about a road everyone here passes on the way to Las Vegas, Zzyzzx (?) Road. She, like many people, thought this was a random collection of letters. Turns out, this is an actual word. She called to say that she has wanted to name a kid this one day ever since she found out it was a real word, even though she doesn't know what it means. In my subjective opinion, that's just dumb, not unique.

None of my 3 children have "normal" names. You probably have never heard of two of them. This is not laziness-just my taste. I do consider lack of grammar and proper spelling lazy though.

I think, with the popularity of regular names, parents want to name children names that are unique or never heard of.  For instance, my name is Fatenia, which has a story to go to it.  Two girls (another girl and I) were born on September 3, 1958 in Clarksville, TN.  My mother named me Fatenia with an "e" in it and the other lady named her daughter Fatina without the "e".  My name is mistaken for Fatima and to be perfectly honest, four babies have been named after me.  I formerly worked for a not-for-profit Social Service agency when I lived in Chicago.  I registered a child one day and the mother actually named her child Takeelah.  I thought that was odd.  It sounded like she was named for a drink. :) ;D
