20 Baby Names Inspired by the End of the World

The lyric, “It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine” from R.E.M. feel eerily relevant right now. As we’re all digesting and absorbing bad news on the daily, our brains might veer into some dark recesses. We’re leaning into it!

Let’s take a moment to think of our impending doom a little more with some baby names to mark this occasion. As the world smolders around us and we look to our offspring in the hopes they’ll save us, let’s impart names to our little babies that capture the direness of the time they’ve been born into.

After all, this could be the end times we were warned about and your little one just might be the embodiment of the antichrist before the great war between good and evil takes us all. The Encylopedia Britannica describes the apocalypse as a situation in which “kings of the earth under demonic leadership [potentially your baby!!!] will wage war on the forces of God at the end of history.”

Here are 20 baby names inspired by civilization’s demise!

20. Anpu

18. Claeg

The English name Claeg rhymes with keg and has an absolutely charming meaning.

    This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced. I visited here online on the 22 of MARCH and i saw a marvelous testimony of a woman from United States on the forum about the good works DR BAKABA I never believed it, because have never heard anything about such miracle before. No body would have been able to convince me about it not until DR.BAKABA did a marvelous work for me that restored my marriage of 4 years by getting back my husband back i just as i read on the internet I was truly shocked when my husband knelt down pleading for forgiveness to accept him back. I am really short of words to use to show my appreciation to DR.BAKABA For his a God sent to me and my entire family for divine restoration of my marriage. Contact him now for any kind of help via Email; [email protected] or you add him on whatsApp number +2347063836098 or call HIM, THANKS DR BAKABA i will always tell the world how you bring my family back
