Provincial government released its inventory of 2017 baby names and you won’t believe it.

Parents believe their children are special, but sometimes they get carried away with names and forget that their child has to introduce themselves like that forever.

In Alberta, Canada, parents have been busy checking out Greek mythology, weird nouns and fizzy beverages as name inspirations.

There are expected ones, with names like Noah (250), Liam (244), Olivia (233) and Emma (215) being the most popular.

But some parents are mavericks. Rebels. They aren’t held back by social convention – after all, why name your child Benjamin when you can name him Nitorious-Shyne?
