25 Times Kids Renamed Everyday Things And Made Them Sound Way Cooler

Kids are incredibly creative. For one, they aren’t restricted by the same rules of speech that govern us grownups.

And sometimes, thanks to this fact, they come up with way better names for everyday things than us adults could ever think of. For instance, a battle unicorn instead of a rhino. Way better, right?!

Kids are great at coming up with funny, descriptive, and downright original names for items we’ve long ago given boring titles. Like ice, booorrring, isn’t water brick so much more fitting?

Gain new perspective on things you’ve long since stopped noticing, all thanks to the fully engaged child mind. It would be difficult for us rational adults to come up with names this cute or clever… this level of genius requires the untarnished mind of a child.

Pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis is the longest word in the English dictionary and contains an impressive 45 letters. It is a type of lung disease. Obviously, a child needs to rename this.

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia is yet another one of the longest words in the dictionary. It means fear of long words. Once again, I’m sure a child could come up with a better name than this.
