Quail? Npeter? The Hottest Baby Names of 2017 Are Expectedly Ridiculous

IMAGE Esquire

For those new parents who comprise part of our great and fair isle's caviar-swaddled high society, a proper name that denotes your spawn's thoroughbred credentials is vital. Logic and bullies be damned!

A bible for the upperclass and those who fetishize it, Tatler magazine has released its take on the poshest names of the year, writing: "If you're having a baby in 2017, we've done the hard work for you and picked out some of the poshest names known to man."

Our favourites include: Quail, Euripides—after the tragic Greek playwright—and Mao... Mao! Although John gets a nod in there.

Shoutout to John.
