Hello!

Choosing a baby name is just as tricky as putting together flat-pack furniture, so IKEA has decided to make it a little easier, by compiling a mammoth list of baby names inspired by its unique product names.

In true IKEA style the Swedish retailer has released a baby name catalogue, filled with more than 800 baby names - and they’re actually pretty phenomenal.

“Finding the name of the child can be both difficult and fun,” the retailer’s Norway branch explains on its website. “We at IKEA have given names to products for more than 70 years. So, if you are completely stuck, or just want some inspiration – here you will find over 800 boy names and girl names. Everything from popular Ivar to more rare names like Moalie.

“In the aftermath of the pandemic, we have seen both a shortage of raw materials and challenges with delivery times, but in Norway there is at least no shortage of children. Now IKEA wants to help new parents find a name for their child.

“In Norway, almost 3,000 more children were born in 2021 than the year before, which is an increase of over five percent, and it presents challenges in finding unique names.”

IKEA names its products after Swedish towns, lakes and other geographical features. But there are also plenty of product names that are more traditionally given to people.

Here’s a taster of more than 200 IKEA baby names, the rest can be found at the IKEA baby name catalogue.

  • Doubt I would use IKEA names myself, in case I named my baby inadvertently after a chair or something. Good selling point though I guess.

  • I’m not sure if these are ‘ikea inspired’ many of them are already existing names. I would prefer to name m6 children based on meaning rather than just the way a name sounds.
