Stressing over finding the perfect name for your baby that not every Sophia and Jacob will have? Well, worry no more. Swiss company Erflogswelle is guaranteeing clients a truly one-of-a-kind name for their progeny for a mere $32,000.
The company is known for creating names for products and brands, but recently expanded their talents into the baby name field after founder Marc Hauser helped a friend name her child. Hauser tells Swiss newspaper Le Matin that the entire naming process takes about five weeks of extensive research and the team includes 12 translators.
"We rely on culture, the origin and the desires of our customers. ... The pronunciation and spelling need to be intuitive. If a person has to repeat his name four times on the phone and no one understands it, it is a failure." Furthermore, Hauser tells ABC News, "If there are any interruptions with past history of anyone having the name before, we kill it." And at the end of the five weeks, the parents-to-be are presented with a list of names to choose from that no one else in the world will have.
I mean when you really think about it, it's a lifetime investment, right? Who needs college when they can have a really special name instead?
