Baby names inspired by Back to the Future

User Rating: / 9

The year 2015 has finally arrived. I remember being a young kid watching Back to the Future II, feeling like 2015 was forever away. I would be in my 30s! I would be old! I would probably have kids! And a job! But at least the flying cars would be pretty swell.

And here we are. No flying cars, sad excuses for hover boards, and shoes we still have to tie. Unfair. But we can still look back on this trilogy and appreciate what it did bring to our future — a whole bunch of cute baby names.
