You Named Your Baby What?


Have you ever scratched your head at the name a celebrity has chosen for their bundle of joy? I know I sure have, it seems that the trend of the past few years is one upping other celebrities with the crazy name choices. Do you think this trend is because Hollywood stars are “artists” or because an odd baby name will get them into the papers? Lets explore some of the more interesting names of the past few years.

Apple, she is the daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. I am sure she is cute enough to eat!

Audio Science, this interesting name was given to the son of Shannyn Sossamon and Dallas Clayton.

Coco, the daughter of Courteney Cox and actor David Arquette. This name makes me laugh because Coco is the name my sister-in-law and her children call number 2, after the Portuguese meaning of the word.

Diva Muffin, daughter of Frank and Gail Zappa. Wonder how that little girl will turn out? They also have another daughter named Moon Unit.

Pilot Inspektor, son of Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf. Wow, is all I have to say.

Moxie CrimeFighter, child of Penn Jillette and wife Emily. This little girl is going to be a superhero.

Petal Rainbow Blossom, daughter of Jamie Oliver and wife Juliette. They have another daughter named Poppy Honey.

Those are the oddest of the hundreds of babies born to celebrities in the past few years.

Sometimes a celebrity babies name isn’t odd but makes you annoyed anyway. I had a name for my first boy picked out for as long as I could remember. My dad’s middle name is Preston, I was dead set on using it as my child’s name and was trying to get pregnant in September of 2005, I actually cried when Britney Spears announced the name of her baby boy Sean Preston. Not only because I thought she was crazy, but because now my favorite name was out in the open and I thought it was a rare name up until then.

What are some of your favorite odd celebrity names.

    I always wonder what people are thinking when they name their kids after objects like cars.

    It was not a celebrity who "took" my baby name… I had always loved the name Emma for a little girl (this was also before Emma had gotten so popular and so I also thought I had somewhat of a unique name that I thought was just beautiful). At the time I was years from having kids as I wasn’t even in a relationship. Then when a couple years ago my dad, step-mom and their family got a new dog and named it Emma, I must say that I was pretty crushed. I have since found other names and of course love their dog, but I can just relate to when your "perfect" name has been taken

    Yeah, some of those border on cruel, lol. They better hope the kids stay in the same industry so they don’t have a hard time getting taken seriously by potential employers.

    I love your daughters name! It’s so unique and beautiful 🙂

  9. I don’t know what these ppl have in their minds, but they are certainly not thinking on their kids…

  10. Blue Ivy. That’s what she named her and Jessica Simpson named her daughter Maxwell. We thought long and hard about what we are going to name our little girl. We looked through books and the Social Security website before we settled on Serenity Cordelia.
