Parents sometimes give their kids weird names after weird things, or sometimes after weird people or symbolic things.

And while most of us think only deranged celebrities name their kids "Apple" or "Blanket," the general public isn't free from blame.

According to data released by the United States Social Security Administration, 109 parents in the U.S. named their child "Tesla" in 2018, presumably after electric automaker run by Elon Musk. Prior to 2003, the name "Tesla" was likely referenced as the surname for Serbian-American inventor, Nikola Tesla. However, as the brand gained traction so did the trend of naming children after it. In 2018, a total of 102 girls and 7 boys received the name.
