MARIAH Carey called her twins Monroe and Moroccan, American actor Jason Lee named his son Pilot Inspektor, and Rocherlea's Storme Ford is named after a car.
Parents, tired of traditional names such as Peter and Paul, have gradually moved in favour of more fashionable, unique names - complete with unique spellings.
Social media was abuzz last week when a new British mother tweeted a photo of her newborn, named Hashtag Jameson.
While sceptics attempt to decipher whether this posting was an internet hoax, Hashtag joins a list of unique names that have been cropping up on birth certificates for years.
Rocherlea mother Kellie- Anne Shearing and her former partner Trent Ford were struggling to come up with a name they agreed to while pregnant with their second child four years ago.
"We were cruising through town and we saw the back end of this nice Commodore ute," Ms Shearing said.
"We looked at the model and it had `Storm' written on it.
"I thought since we'd never have the funds to buy a Storm ute, the next-best thing is to name my son that.
"And we're not Ford people at all, we're Holden people.
"At least (Storme) isn't all Ford, he's got a bit of Holden in him."
When number three came for Ms Shearing and Mr Ford 12 months ago, they decided to continue the unique name trend, naming their boy Levi Ryder.
Ms Shearing said this was inspired by the brand of jeans.
She said she hoped both boys grew up to enjoy their names as much as their parents did.
"You get the odd person pick at you and ask how could you name your child that, but I think they're strong names," Ms Shearing said.
"Hopefully the next generation continue to come up with different names rather than the same ones over and over again."
