How Would You Say This Name?

I feel like it all started with a baby being named Apple. That is what opened the door to people now choosing unique and creative baby names. There is one coming from Australia that seems to be taking social media by storm.

Can you figure out how to pronounce this name: KVIIILYN.

When I first saw it I wasn’t sure exactly what I was looking at or how I’d pronounce it. But once you find out that the “trick” is that 4 of those letters are actually Roman numerals, I guess it makes a little more sense.

It’s “Kaitlyn”. The V-I-I-I is the Roman numeral for eight.

The story is actually a few years old, bit it seems to be spreading all across Reddit and Facebook, bringing up discussions on how to pronounce the name (before the whole Roman numeral things is revealed).

What is the most unique baby name you’ve ever heard? Let me know in the comments below!
