Gotta name 'em all??

We understand nicknaming your Pok├â┬⌐mon so they can have human names… but the other way around?! That might be a little much.

But, since the Pokémon Go craze has been sweeping the globe, it was only a matter of time before people started naming their babies after their favorite Pocket Monsters.

That’s right, according to BabyCenter, parents are actually naming their HUMAN children after Pok├â┬⌐mon.

The site reports that names like Roselia, Eevee, and Onyx are quickly becoming popular monikers for little girls, while people are opting for Ivy, Shay, and enthusiastic trainer Ash for baby boys.

BabyCenter also revealed that about half of the mommas on the site are playing the nostalgic game, which means this is probably just the beginning.

In fact, the page’s Global Editor-In-Chief Linda Murray admitted:

“Parents are always looking to pop culture for baby name inspiration and, right now, it doesn’t get hotter than Pokemon Go.”
