The 10 Most Bizarre Baby Names Of All Time

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Choosing the right baby name is an important decision that parents spend nine long months agonizing over. Trying to determine a special and unique name that their child will carry with them for the rest of their life is not an easy decision, and a lot of factors go into deciding what to name a baby.

Parents often look for the most unique baby name or a baby name that holds special meaning, like that of a beloved relative or close friend.

As babies, we get no say in choosing our name, and just have to accept whatever name we are given. If we're lucky, our parents will choose names that don't get us mercilessly taunted as we walk through life.

Most of us have been fortunate enough to be given names that we like, and fill us with pride. However, once in a while, parents can drop the ball when it comes to picking baby names.

Each year, the Social Security Administration releases a list of the most popular baby names in the U.S.

The following list is of the 10 oddest baby name choices parents can make:

10. Snowy

What kid doesn't love a snow day? They get to stay home from school, build snow forts with their friends, and enjoy hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. There's no doubt about it, kids love the snow.

But they might not be too thrilled about having to walk around with the name "Snowy."

After all "snowy" is a way to describe the weather, or something that's happening to your TV during a storm, not your kid.

In 2013, the Social Security Administration reported five baby girls were given the name "Snowy."
