Royaltee Dagger: These baby names are real and they're not spectacular

"Your baby is so cute, what's her name?" "Royaltee Dagger Mickinley."

No, you aren't losing your mind. All three of those names are now registered on the Social Security's extended name popularity list. According to Today, there were 1,393 names created by parents in 2014 and maybe some of them should've been left unused.

Among the oddest names used are: Billion, Common, Dagger, Lay, Londynne, Mickinley, Payzley, Royaltee, Ruckus, Sadman, Swastik and Wimberley.

To have a name added to the list, it must be given to at least five children in the United States. Some of the names come from famous rappers (Common -- you can't compete with him, OK?) while others are misspellings of famous international cities (Londynne is not a city in England, people!) It is also worth mentioning that there are now nine baby girls with that name and it joins a list of names created from cities that includes: Sicilee, Millan and Jerzei.

So if you are planning on naming your upcoming baby, remember you may not want the teacher yelling, "Sadman, get back here!" across the playground.
