Would You Name Your Kid After the Olympics?

In China, the Olympics are such a big deal that parents are naming their children after them!

Nearly 3,500 children (mostly male) were named Aoyun, meaning Olympics, back in 2000 when China was a contender to host the games. An additional 4,000 are named after the five Olympic Beijing Game mascots, the Five Friendlies. The names are Bei Bei, Jing Jing, Huan Huan, Ying Ying, and Ni Ni. When all five names are put together, it translates to "Beijing welcomes you."
