With 50 per cent more baby names on the new national register than there were 25 years ago, it come as little surprise that parents are becoming ever more adventurous when it comes to naming their children.
But some of the names to have made the list go far beyond the unusual, straying well into weird territory.
A new list compiled by Nameberry has unearthed a selection of unlikely monikers including Tequila, Cougar and Moo.
Also included in their round-up of the most bizarre names are Swayze, after late actor Patrick, which five boys were named last year, while 14 girls and 25 boys were given the name Wrigley, after the Chicago stadium.
The name Tomorrow also appeared on the register, alongside Evening and Future, while Cougar was one of the more unusual among the trend for what Nameberry calls 'fierce' names.
'To the six girls named Bunny out there: Watch out,' joked site founder Pamela Redmond Satran.
The strangest, though, has to be the dismissive Eh, which 14 girls were named last year.
One can only pity the six baby boys last year who were named Penisimani. Though it appears to be an an established if rare name in the South Sea Islands, it is likely to cause much ridicule when they reach school age.
The same is likely to be the case for the children named Asser, Virgina, Peniel and Dearria.

Mad Men character Don inspired parents to call their sons Draper, while Elvis's home Graceland was the name given to seven baby girls.
Notorious was the name given to five boys - no doubt their parents were fans of Biggie, while the very tough-sounding Tank was among this year's newest names.
Conjoined names - those without a space, hyphen or even spelling the second of the two names with a capital letter - also emerged as an unlikely new trend.
Five boys were named Kingsolomon, while others on the register were Princewilliam, Princemichael, Sircharles, and Marcjacob.
some people think it's special to have uncommon charactors in babies name,so resently they are fond of choosing rare words.
but some teachers say,when they call students to answer questions at class and they don't know their name,they will skip it ,and turn to some one else. and children may make fun of kids that having strange names,so for some reason,we don't know it is good or bad to have special names.
Among the slew of end-of-decade and end-of-year wrap-up lists, there were several tallies of the most popular names of recent years (as well as predictions for name-trends of the f
