Parents Name Their Child ‘Sanitiser’ To Remind Them Of The Coronavirus!

Parents Name Their Child ‘Sanitiser’ To Remind Them Of The Coronavirus!


Living through the coronavirus pandemic seems to be wreaking havoc with some people’s sanity. How else can you explain this couple’s decision to name their new born baby Sanitiser?

COVID-related names for newborns have begun to emerge – especially in India – in a baby naming trend we’d like to see the end of. According to Indian media outlet Deccan Herald a child has been called Sanitiser by his parents, who wanted to remember the coronavirus pandemic. The child’s father, Omveer Singh said the name would help them remember this historic period in time.

“Everyone is fighting against this virus…from our prime minister to ordinary people. This (Sanitiser) is our contribution,’‘ Singh said. “Sanitiser is one of the best ways to protect oneself against contracting coronavirus infection. We will remember this period (lockdown), whenever (we) utter his name.”

Baby Sanitiser comes just two weeks after twins were named Covid and Corona in the Indian state of Chhattisgarh. They were born during the ongoing national lockdown that began on March 24.

“The delivery happened after facing several difficulties and therefore, my husband and I wanted to make the day memorable,” Preeti Verma, the 27-year-old mother of the twins, told news agency Press Trust of India at the time.

Yet another Coronavirus inspired name came from a man in Uttar Pradesh’s Deoria district who named his newborn child ‘Lockdown’. The father of the newborn Pawan Kumar, had said that he had been ”inspired greatly” by the lockdown, which helped to prevent the spread of the virus.

Seriously? Did no-one think of the poor children?
