Oh, dear: Twitter-obsessed parents reportedly name daughter ‘Hashtag Jameson’

Does it irk you when people hashtag every tweet for no apparent reason? The parents of an adorable newborn girl have reportedly taken hashtagging to another truly unfortunate level that will result in decades of therapy bills.

While it doesn’t appear to be a confirmed story (and we hope it’s not true), The Daily Dot reports that Hashtag Jameson was welcomed to the world on Saturday night and “weyed” in at 8 pounds.

Her mom, Look At Me Jameson, and dad, Attention Whore Jameson, must be so proud!

There isn’t much that unites the Twitterverse, but this choice of names is something most Twitter users agree is a bad call.

We eagerly await the explanation for why Hashtag’s birth was announced on … Facebook.

Do us a favor: If you hear about anyone naming a kid #TeamUterati, keep us in the dark. We really don’t want to know.

    With parents like these, perhaps “Hash-bag” would have been more appropriate.

      Or simply douchebag. If they are libs, the poor baby will have her contraception before she menstruates.

    Well sure there’s nothing….snicker….ROFL … ok that was funny.
    I remember a lawyer a few years back trying to make the case that children should be allowed to sue their parents for giving them stupid names…this definitely supports his argument.

    Could’ve been worse….could’ve named her Barack.

    Clearly the parents should have put down the hash-pipe

    Why, while reading this story, did Tagg Romney come to mind?

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      @GaryTheBrave:
      “Tagg” is a diminutive form of “Taggart” or “Taggert”.

      These sort of names are of the same “class” as “George Washington Carver” or “Washington Irving”, or “Lincoln Chaffee” — people named after heroes.

    Could have been a Boy Named Sue :-0

    Let’s just hope this was a pre-birth nickname…

    Love the literate response to the baby ‘weying’ 8 pounds, lol. Seriously, is it ANY wonder?
