Margot (@holygemini) jotted down in her head all the names she found interesting, and some of these are the children she worked as a nanny for.

She shared her favorites, which are more popular than she thought in her last post Video.

The young caretaker put together a video of a mother writing down her children’s nicknames, which she heard from her daughter.

“POV: Your generation felt neglected/common and gave their child a unique name that no one can spell or pronounce,” the caption read.

I've given my daughters unique names - people say they sound like
I chose a unique name for my daughter - people say it's satire

Margot sat in bed and thought about what had happened.

She admitted that she loves her job and has no intention of making fun of those nicknames.

“There’s ‘River’ and ‘Jasper’.” “Otis” and “Bernadine,” said Margot.

“‘Theo’, ‘Daschel’, ‘Allister’, ‘Lila’, ‘Leila’ and two ‘Evies’.”

Every time Margot takes the kids to the park, she learns something new.

“Yesterday I heard ‘Beau’ and ‘Sarge’, ‘Bernadetta’.” “I heard ‘Junika Rose’ once,” she announced.

“Last year I was working with two kids named ‘Max’ and ‘Harry’ and everyone was like, ‘Woah, those are such cool names.'”

But Margot thought the “new normal” was to give your kids weird names.

Viewers commented on their favorite name, Margot.

One TikTok user wrote, “Bernadine goes hard to be honest.”

“Bo’s way too popular a name right now lol,” exclaimed one follower.

Margot replied, “My grandparents’ dog was called ‘Beau’.”
