Would you ever let a stranger name your baby? Probably not. How about paying that person for the same service? Seems even less likely. Well it turns out that”professional baby namer” is an actual job and I want to know how to apply. A woman named Taylor Humphrey has gone viral recently for claiming that she made over $150,000 in 2020 for naming more than 100 babies. Her services can be acquired for somewhere between $1,500 and $10,000. That price range seems a little steep. An example of her work is giving parents the name “Parks” for their new child after learning their first kiss was in a town named Parker. Humphrey says many parents have run out of ideas by their third or fourth child, and she’s always been passionate about baby names.
