I’m endlessly fascinated by how and why people choose their baby names. I’m especially fascinated by the thought process that goes into picking a unique or quirky name. Like, did they hear it somewhere? Make it up? Is it a secret code word? As it turns out, your unique baby name might not be so unique after all! A researcher was able to narrow down the quirkiest baby girl names in each state, and I have to say: it’s kind of hilarious that there are at least a hundred babies and kids somewhere out there with one of these!

First up in the quirkiest baby girl names by state: California! Jaylene is the most popular quirky girl name in the Golden State.

I can’t say that I’ve ever met a Jaylene, and I live in California!
