There are an awful lot of bizarre names around nowadays - as we were saying to our colleague, Ivor Biggun, only the other week.
So it takes something really special to make us stop and do a double-take. But this is something really special. Ready? It appears that a proud new mum has named her baby daughter 'Hashtag'. Well, that's what she announced on Facebook anyway...
Hashtag? Hashtag? You can't call a baby after a punctuation symbol. Where will the madness end? Ampersand? Asterisk? Colon? That said, we do have a very good friend called Dot.
Anyway, fingers crossed, the Facebook name announcement was merely a post-childbirth typo. And if it wasn't? Never mind, kid - at least your mum didn't decide to call you Mitt Romney like that poor baby in Kenya...
