Is it teething time for your little one?
10 Ironic baby names inspired by the coronavirus pandemic

There’s no denying the fact that the coronavirus pandemic has been pretty much taking over our entire lives for the past year. However, life must go on — and it is!

New babies are being born each and every day, pandemic or not. And with new babies, comes a whole host of new names. Taking inspiration from the current global health crisis, many parents have decided to give their tiny tots brand new names, which will remind them of this unforgettable time in their lives.

That’s right, pandemic themed baby names are a thing, and we’ve created a list of just some of our favourites, as inspiration for any soon-to-be parents.

Corona - An obvious nod to a potentially deadly virus

Kovi - Derived from Covid-19

Rona - Short-form for coronavirus

Corina - Sort of sounds like corona

Demi - Integrated into the word pandemic

Santi - Short for sanitiser

Isla - A subtle nod to the government advice to self-ISoLAte

Lochlan - So that you always remember the never-ending lockdowns

Quarantina - Derived from the term quarantine

Russell - A reminder of the virus
