10 of the Craziest Celebrity Baby Names
Choosing a baby name is probably one of the most difficult tasks for new parents (well except for labor and actually having the baby!). With hundreds of baby name books, your friends and families all giving their favorites and “please don’t ever name your baby” lists, not to mention coming up with something that both you and your partner can agree on, there’s no doubt it’s a challenge. Good luck, and remember: You probably can’t do any worse than these celebs!
#1 Pilot Inspektor
Son of Jason Lee
My Name is Earl actor, Jason Lee is full of laughs and jokes on screen, but when he named his son Pilot Inspektor, we wondered if it was a joke. Why “Pilot?” Because he heard a song by the band Grandaddy called ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot’.
Son Alicia Keys
Singer Alicia Keys and her music producer husband named their son Egypt. We’re not sure of the meaning for the happy couple, but yes, it’s as in the country.
Daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow
When the world first heard of Daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin naming their daughter Apple, after a fruit, everyone was a bit shocked. When Gwen was asked to explain the name choice on Oprah. Her exact words:
“Right, well, um, basically it was because when we were first pregnant, her daddy said, if it’s, basically one day he just said if it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple. And I just, it sounded so sweet, and it conjures such a lovely picture for me, you know apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical and it’s just, they’re so, and I just thought it sounded so lovely and …” Clearly Gwyneth is just as unsure of the name choice as we all are.
#4 Sage Moonblood
Son of Sylvester Stallone
This middle name makes the cut as one of the craziest celeb baby names ever. Why blood?
#5 Bluebell Madonna
Daughter of Geri Halliwell from the Spice Girls
Ginger Spice decided to spice up her daughter’s life when she named her Bluebell Madonna. When asked about the name, Geri stated that “What really clinched it for me was my mother telling me that the bluebell is increasingly rare – so it’s a precious flower, which seems just right for my daughter,” says Geri. She went on to say that her daughter’s middle name is a tribute to two of her idols – the Virgin Madonna and pop singer Madonna.
#6 Sunday Rose
Daughter of Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
The name Sunday is sweet, but adding Rose as a middle name seemed like an attention grabber. Nicole explained to Oprah why she chose the name. “Sunday, that’s our favorite day. Because I think there’s something to do with Sundays where, if you’re lonely, Sundays are a very lonely day. And if you’re happy and you’ve got your family and the things around you, then Sunday’s a beautiful day. So our baby’s called Sunday.”
#7 Sparrow James Midnight
Son of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden
Sparrow, named after a bird seemed a bit of a strange choice. WIn an interview with People magazine, Richie said: “Sparrow was one we both liked. I liked the way it sounded with Harlow, and there’s the Captain Jack Sparrow connection.”
#8 Buddy Bear
Son of Jamie and Jools Oliver
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools, named their first son Buddy Bear. Literally. Buddy Bear is brother to Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo and Blossom Rainbow. According to Jamie, “Jools is definitely in charge of the names,” he told TV host Sharon Osbourne, and added; “we’re probably quite lucky it was a boy really, because we were out of names for girls.”
Daughter of Courtney Cox and David Arquette
The original plan was to name their baby girl after Courtney, however, this went against David’s Jewish traditions, so they settled on Coco after a childhood nickname Courtney used to have.
#10 Blue Angel
Daughter of U2’s The Edge
Simply the name Angel, would have been a sweet and of course angelic name, however by adding the ‘Blue’, the Edge has earned a spot on our crazy list.
