Apparently rich people will spend money on ANYTHING… and that’s why those upscale farmers markets will charge $5 for a SINGLE tomato.
So really… this isn’t that surprising:
There’s a 33-year-old woman in New York named Taylor Humphrey who calls herself a “professional baby namer” …Yup, you read that right and she charges up to $10,000 just to name your baby.
Taylor doesn’t have any kids herself and she describes herself as a “passionate writer and storyteller,” who is “adept at branding, marketing, and social media.” She has also worked as a matchmaker in the past, but she’s been working in the baby-naming business since 2015.
She has a range of fees. If you just want to call her and ask for a name … that may “only” cost around $1,500. But if you want her to get to know your family and look through genealogies … that’s closer to her $10,000 premium price.
For that kind of scratch, you’d expect GENIUS and totally original names, BUT she’s NOT promising a UNIQUE baby name … so her suggestion might be, you know, “Bob.”
