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.
