What Are the Most Pretentious Baby Names?
|11 May 2010|
Several years ago, Gawker readers decided that Dillinger was the most pretentious baby name ever.
Certain surname-names do seem pretentious to me, but I don’t know about Dillinger. It makes me think of criminals.
I think names stolen from intellectuals (e.g., Aristotle, Einstein, Kierkegaard, Socrates, Voltaire) are more pretentious than surname-names.
What types of baby names do you think of as being pretentious?
