Is this for real?

I came across a news article this morning, mentioning this site: http://www.erfolgswelle.ch/naming-agentur-namensagentur/vornamen-f%C3%BCr-kinder-kindernamen-finden/creation-of-new-first-names-children-s-names/?ncid=txtlnkusaolp00000619. Apparently they make up names for babies, do some checks that the name isn't being used by a company, and come up with a story about the name.

I've never heard of that before. It's really strange, don't you think? I never thought people might actually make a business out of making up names! I just thought it was every writer's pasttime.

Am I reading correctly that they charge $31,000 to create a name???

Yes, that seems to be correct. Though they will refund it if you are the first one to actually use the name they create. :)
