What is this Urban Dictionary fad? We searched for 5 names but Twitter has the best memes
The world is searching for meaning of names on Urban Dictionary. But why?
- Total Shares
What is everyone doing these days? Searching for their names on Urban Dictionary (blame the internet). Instagram stories and tweets are flooded with meanings of Simran, Raj, Karan, Aditya, Divya, Anjali, Neha, Pooja and what not. And there is no end to this (at least for now). Urban Dictionary was till now used to search meanings of commonly used slangs, and now... names. It is the new pandit in town who is telling you the meaning of names.
WHY IS THIS HAPPENING? Instagram user Yunus Caesar, @bymayuuu, posted a question: “Show us ur name in Urban Dictionary”. It quickly went on to become a trend, with more than 2 million re-shares. Now, Instagram and Twitter users across the world are busy looking for their names.
We also decided to read some unusual stuff on Urban Dictionary, and hence, searched for popular brand names. Here are the results:
1. Search for Domino’s and read something interesting

2. Netflix and... well, whatever (weekend vibes already)

3. If you search for Swiggy or Zomato, you get a combined result (quite a hand-in-hand situation)

4. Addicted to Instagram? Urban dictionary describes the situation very well

5. iPhone, the same box with a new price

SEARCHED FOR YOUR NAME YET? If you search for your name, you will read the best stuff about you (things you have secretly always wanted to hear). Trust me, Urban Dictionary is quite a bragger.
STOP THE MADNESS:
With unrealistic results, the Urban Dictionary trend has now become quite annoying. Twitter users want it to stop right away! Heavy trolling might help.
