Every year, millions of parents around the world struggle with a simple problem: what to name their new babies. It”s a more common problem than you think. Most parents are obsessed with giving their child a unique, special, and perfect name.
Now, for a mere $32k investment, one company in Switzerland will find a name for child guartenteed to be 100% unique.
The company is called Erflogswelle. Their team of expert baby namers promise to come up with a name for your child that isn”t shared with anyone else in the world.
Founder Marc Hauser said he came up with the idea for Erflogswelle after helping a friend come up with a name for her child. “The choice was causing tension between the couple, so I thought I could help,” said Hauser.
After helping his friend, Hauser realized there might be some money to be made coming up with unique baby names. The entire process takes about 5 weeks and the team takes their jobs very seriously. “We rely on culture, the origin and the desires of our customers,” said Hauser explaining the process. “The pronunciation and spelling need to be intuitive. If a person has to repeat his name four times on the phone and no one understands it, it is a failure.”
The $32k price tag might be a turn off for a lot of parents, but Hauser seems to be having some great initial success with his baby naming serivce

Maybe instead of spending $32,000 on a name, these parents could be putting that money towards college.
