Choosing a baby name is a difficult decision for any parent, but one expectant mother got more than she bargained for when she asked a group of children for inspiration.
Unusually-named Tumblr account ‘notdeadbabies’ posted a picture, writing: ‘My cousin is a preschool teacher and asked her students to suggest names for the baby she is expecting. It went well.’
The image, which shows a display board with baby grows with name suggestions written on them, initially looks very sweet and innocent – until you read the monikers the kids came up with for their teacher, who is identified only as ‘Miss Julie’.
The names chosen by the class vary from the very normal, with both ‘Lucy and ‘Gracie’ being suggested for a girl, and ‘Henry’ for a boy, to the extremely abstract, with ‘Dog’, ‘Balloon’ and even ‘Potato’ being thrown into the mix.

There’s been no word yet as to whether Miss Julie will be using any of the names the children pitched, but our gut feeling is that she might still need to invest in a few baby name books, just in case…
Perhaps Miss Julie could use our baby name generator for inspiration instead?
