Setting their children up for a life of greed and unreciprocated romantic advances, (or in all-likelihood a long career of stripping) no less than 7 couples named their children (we presume all daughters, but we're also cisgendered scum), after the cartoon horse Rarity.
And it doesn't stop there.
According to this article and this article, not only are there 7 kids named after fashion horse, there are also 20 kids now named "Nyx".
What is "Nyx" you ask?
How new are you?
If you punch "Nyx" into a quick google search, one of the first things that will come up, that are relatively recent developments, is this little bundle of "early-fandom-what-the-fuck".
That, kids, is Nyx. And because we know you are too lazy to click the associated link, what you need to know is that it is a Black Alicorn OC that was created by the resurrection of Nightmare Moon as a child.
Nyx, simply put, is the premier edgy fanfic oc.
This is hardly the first time somebody has gone as far as to name their newborn after a pony. In 2012, a DeviantArt user named "Runa The Seamstress" named her daughter "Pinkamena Zecora Smith".
Pinkamena turned 2 years old this Spring. She will be in elementary school before the show ends.
Is this a wise decision on the parts of parents? How many more pony children will we see before the ride ends? Will we someday be able to purchase REAL sports jerseys with the name "Rainbow Dash" on the back?
Thanks Spazz for showing us these links. We can't wait to see all the boys named "Tirek" and girls named "Maud" when the list comes out for 2014.
