brothers dressed as piratesWho knew dirty, rotten pirates could inspire some of the most swashbucklingly sweet baby names? Still not convinced? We dug up some true treasures, so read on!

Jack & Sparrow
The Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is a new classic, just like these trend-defying first names inspired by our favorite hot pirate!

Listen closely. Can’t you just hear Johnny Depp in character singing, “Yo ho ho and a bottle of RUM!”? Capture the spirit with a little Captain Morgan of your own!

Give birth to a V.I.P. (Very Important Pirate), and name your swashbuckler after the personal assistant to the captain!

Give your gorgeous treasure a name as glittering as pirate’s booty! (Get yer mind outta the gutter, matey.)

All good pirates need a good, reliable crew, so why shouldn’t you have one, too? (Even if you have to give birth to yours yourself …)

Not fond of filthy pirates? Focus your baby name selection on their ultimate destination–an island full of palm trees, warm sands and tasty frozen drinks! (Don’t forget the cabana boys!)

Roger, you ask? What kind of pirate is called Roger? We’ll tell you: the JOLLY kind! (We see a skull-and-crossbones tattoo in his future.)

Argh! Can you think of a more perfect name for a lil’ peg leg! Having a girl? Call her Peggy!
