Being a son or a daughter of a celebrity comes with a lot of advantages. Extravagant lifestyle, easy access to the limelight and a one of a kind birth name. Paparazzi could not hold their horses to have a glimpse of these celebrities’ kids the moment they were born. They wanted to have the first dibs of the baby’s picture or at least his name published on their websites. It somehow became a tradition that celebs love to give their babies weird names. Of course, they want their baby to stand out in the crowd. Well, these not so common baby names will surely be looking forward to and will be talking about. To name a few – Blue Ivy, North West and Zolten cute or Nah? Here, we listed the most unusual celebrity baby names to date. Let’s have a rundown!
- Royal Reign (Lil’ Kim)
Lil’ Kim chooses this two-word name for her new daughter. Royal is an old school name of a boy and combining it with Reign just gave it the feeling of a strong ruler of law.
- Future Zahir (Clara and Future)
Yes, it’s a “family name,” as Ciara’s rapper fiancé Future picked the moniker for his stage name.
- North West (Kim Kardashian and Kanye West)
Well, we thought that Kimye is kidding when they told us at The Tonight Show that they want to name their firstborn daughter North West. Okay, we were wrong.
- Cricket (Busy Philips)
Obviously, Busy Philips is fond of animals right? She chose Birdie for her first daughter and a chirpy bush bug for her second.
- Rainbow Aurora (Holly Madison)
Holly Madison’s choice of her baby daughter’s name seems a colorful sleeping fairy tale princess.
- Breeze Beretta (Levi Johnston)
Former Bristol Palin’s ex-flame Levi Johnson could have just stuck with the Palin clan. Well, he got their flair for picking offbeat names. Breeze is not bad but naming your baby girl after a detergent brand seems a bit odd.
- Blue Ivy (Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z)
Beyonce disclosed that this name was an inspiration from an excerpt from the 2005 novel “A Field Guide To Getting Lost” by Rebecca Solnit’s.
- Rosalinda Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence (Uma Thurman)
Can we say that Uma Thurman burdened her youngest daughter with that five-word name? Even royal kids like Princess Charlotte only has a three-word name. Nevertheless, Uma often calls her baby as Luna, a nickname based on Italian origin that means moon.
- Thijs (Matt Lauer)
So if you thought that Cricket and Birdie were unusual, Matt Lauer had taken it the extra mile with this strange Dutch name of a boy. This is pronounced as ‘Tice’ and is considered very usual in the Netherlands.
- Poppy Honey Rosie, Buddy Bear, Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow (Jamie Oliver)
We can consider that Jamie Oliver is a hall of Famer when it comes to naming a baby. He does not really skimp on whimsy. Daisy might ditch the Boo in between when she is already in her teenage years, definitely.
- Audio Science (Shannyn Sossamon)
It is certainly not what Shannyn Sossamon majored in college but it is what she picked to name her baby. She said in an interview,” we were going to call him Science, but thought it might get shortened to Sci, as in SIMON.” Okay, that could have been more normal.
- Maple Sylvie (Jason Bateman)
Maybe Jason Bateman is thinking of that stunning tree or drooling over that sweet syrup when he chose this baby name?
- Rocket Zot (Sam Worthington)
Avatar star Sam Worthington’s pick for his first child’s name with wife Lara Bingle came to be a surprising one. They pick the name simply because they love how a rocket sounded while Zot came from Lara Bingle’s late father’s nickname.
- Bear Blu (Alicia Silverstone)
Alicia Silverstone is one of the three celebs who are fond of naming a baby with Bear. Jamie Oliver and Kate Winslet are the other two. Though, the public is not that impressed with this animal name.
- Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale (Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale)
Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale named their child from the late rock legend David Bowie.
- Moroccan and Monroe (Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon)
These aren’t as offbeat as you might expect from diva Mariah Carey and her hubby, Nick Cannon. But who else thinks that they call them Rock and Roe?
- Kal-El (Nicholas cage)
Nicholas Cage saddled his son with the Krypton name of Superman. Couldn’t he have gone with Clark Kent instead?
- Satchel (Spike Lee)
Maybe Spike was keeping in mind that babies are so cute where you can nuzzle them close and carry around that’s why he named his baby Satchel since the French word means small bag?
- Destry (Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw)
Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw’s daughter Destry might be somewhere between destiny and destroy?
- Bronx Mowgli (Ashlee Simpson)
Ashlee Simpson and ex-beau Pete Wentz made the world raised their eyebrows for naming their baby “Bronx”. Though combining it with Mowgli since they considered The Jungle Book as something that they bonded over.
- Pilot Inspektor (Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf)
Jason Lee mentioned that he got this name for his son from a song in 2000’s album by indie rock band Grandaddy.
- Bodhi Ransom Green (Megan Fox)
Bodhi means enlightenment or awakening on its Sanskrit origin. This related to a Buddhist concept and is synonymous with nirvana that is freed from ego, greed, and hate.
- Heaven Love’ on and God’Iss Love (Lil’ Mo)
Sweet sentiments should be appreciated here. However, the misspellings and odd sound somehow ruined the R&B singer’s choice of baby names.
- Tu (Rob Morrow)
Probably Rob Morrow granted his son a pun name (no brainer: Tu Morrow)? Let’s just hope that Tu will have an amazing sense of humor.
- Seven Sirius, Mars Merkaba, Puma Rose Sabti (Erykah Badu)
Erykah Badu loves wordy random names as well as no rhyme or reason for her choices. Just combinations of planets, animals, flowers, and numbers. Well, it is all good!
