There seems to be a trend of parents naming their babies after Pokemon. Although some listed are in fact names already or at least takeoffs. Ash well short of Ashley, Evee ok short for Evelyn. Muk no just no, junior high will be miserable for the child, . Mankey really? Onyx sigh. Ivy actually there is a Storage War regular named Ivy.

I guess you could name a child Patricia or Mika and nickname her Pika. Pikachu or Pika as birthname no.

So any Pokemon player considering naming your child after a Pokemon?

I really want to meet the parents who named their child Muk or Mankey and ask “what was in your mind”.
