The 13 Craziest Celebrity Baby Names of All Time
What happens when celebrities have babies? Instead of sticking with unique, not-too-far-out-of-the-box monikers, they endow their celebutots with over-the-top names. Some are so crazy, in fact, that we just can’t help but shake our heads at the choice.
Last week, when Busy Philipps welcomed her second daughter to the world, we sat on the edge of our seats waiting for the two-time mama and her husband, Marc Silverstein, to release the details on their little girl’s name. The duo named their first born Birdie Leigh (a name I actually love), so we assumed they’d follow suit and give their newest addition a name that flowed well with her big sister’s. What we weren’t ready for, however, was the name they actually went with.
Here’s what Busy and Marc named their little babe (and 12 other Hollywood kids with crazy names of their own!):
Cricket Pearl PhilippsParents: Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein
With a Birdie and a now a Cricket, there's no denying the Philipps-Silverstein girls' are going to be heavy into nature.
North WestParents: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
In a move that shocked us all, Kim and Yeezy took a cue from a compass when naming their daughter. Now, she'll never have to wonder which way up.
Rainbow Aurora RotellaParents: Holly Madison and Pasquale Rotella
Former Playboy girl Holly Madison was definitely inspired by colors when she welcomed her baby bundle!
Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-BussonParents: Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson
Even though Uma and her beau couldn't pick just one name, surprise! Baby girl isn't even going to be called any of those names. She'll go by Luna. So, why didn't the just name her that in the first place?
Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha MomoaParents: Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa
Nakoa is a name I actually like. But Nakoa-Wolf Manajauapo? Forget it. I can't even pronounce that.
Mars Merkaba ThedfordParents: Erykah Badu and Jay Electronica
Baby's name just proves how other worldly he is!
Kyd Miller DuchovnyParents: David Duchovny and Te Leoni
So, what happens when Kyd grows up? Will they petition the courts to change his name to "Adult"?
Jermajesty JacksonParents: Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza
This just proves that when you're a true Jackson, you can put a "Jer" prefix on anything. Jerdumb. Jercrazy. JerWhyDidYouNameYourKidThat.
Buddy Bear OliverParents: Jamie and Jools Oliver
I like "Buddy" as a nickname but as a first name? Not sure it works. And Bear? Please.
Bear Blu JareckiParents: Alicia Silverstone and Christopher Jarecki
Get this: Not only is Bear Blu named Bear Blu, but he also has a friend named Panther, which makes their playdates together the most horrifying thing ever.
Moroccan and Monroe CannonParents: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
I guess when you're Mariah Carey you can do whatever you want.
Bronx Mowgli WentzParents: Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz
Inspired by the borough and the book, Bronx will never have to worry about people mispronouncing his name! (But still.)
Apple MartinParents: Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow
I suppose we've all got Apple Martin to thank for the crazy celeb baby name trend. When Goop gave birth to her baby girl, she shocked the world with her name choice. Now, choosing a quirky, unusual moniker is just commonplace. Thanks a lot, Apple.
