Any Babies Named Nintendo?

nintendo NES controllersDid you know that the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) first went on sale in North America just over 27 years ago?

I didn’t, until Mental Floss told me.

This, of course, made me wonder if any U.S. babies born in the last 27 years had been named Nintendo.

Nintendo has never popped up on the SSA’s baby name list, like Atari has, but that doesn’t mean it’s never been used.

The verdict? I found a single baby named Nintendo: a baby boy born in California on July 27, 1991, and named Caprice Nintendo Love.

Now the question is: Is he the only one?

  1. Just spotted a name that reminded me of this one — Tetris Shaquille Calloway, male, born on April 12, 1994 in California. (Tetris was my go-to Nintendo game.)
