"All of the kids came up with these names that were pretty hilarious. Being with 4- and 5-year-olds is definitely an experience. Their personalities came out [in this project]. We have some pretty funny kids," Siakpere said, in the understatement of the year.
Some of the baby names the kids came up with are totally normal, like these girls' names: Allie, Sawyer, Lucy, Gracie.
And then there are the not-so-normal ones, like Strawberry, Tiny, Cindy Elf, Mama, and um, Assie.
For boys, the kids' suggestions range from Grandma—yes, for a boy—to Dog, Peter Pan, Racecar, and Potato. Oh, and we can't forget Balloon and Elephant.
"I thought it was hilarious and apparently everybody else did too. I'm excited that this has gotten as big as it is," said Siakpere's wife, Abby. Indeed a photo of the post is going viral, with 1.3 million views on Reddit. Meanwhile, the project is on display outside the class so the mini-baby namers' parents can see it.
Incidentally, I have a 5-year-old, so I decided to ask her if she had any names to add to the list. Miss Julie, if you are reading this, we hope you'll also consider Hammy Bread and Weenie.
