Having a child with a boring old family name isn't eugh these days - John and Jane just doesn't cut it. How can you possibly keep up with your hipster neighbours? Hipster Baby Names has the answer - give your child the most hipster name you can. For girls, you could try Anais, Enid, Beatrix, Beryl, Scout or Ethel, or Arlo, Atticus, Axl, Lenn or Bear for a boy. With helpful meanings (when they're t completely made-up words - or taken from cult television shows such as Game of Thrones) you'll be giving your offspring the best chance of a cool life.
