Default Weird Baby Names

Now dont get me wrong, I love an unusual name.
But the news that Gwen Stefani has named her newborn son
ZUMA NESTA ROCK ROSSDALE left me a bit bemused. Like ?

There are some odd baby names out there.

A few of my faves:

Audio Science: Shannyn Sossamon's son
Moxie CrimeFighter: Penn Jillette's daughter, he also has a kid called Zolten
Pilot Inspektor: Jason Lee's son
Rocket: Robert Rodriguez (also has kids called Racer, Rebel and Rogue)
Sage Moonblood: Sylvester Stallone's daughter

These names are just weird lol!!! Although I will admit I quite like Moxie!

What weird names have you heard? What's your take on celeb baby names? What names do you like?
If I ever have a little girl, the name I have picked is Ivy Belle Atkinson.
For a boy its Foley George Atkinson.

(no-one steal those names!! )

There's no shortage of bad celeb baby names, is there? I read recently in some tabloid that an American daytime soap star (can't remember his name) named his sun Peanut. His rationale is that "people will laugh" when they hear it. Yeah, I bet they will. Poor kid.

Oh yes, I heard that on the radio. They called one baby Number 16 Bus Shelter and another Midnight Chardonnay.

Yeah that was some soap star called his kid Peanut Kai, cos it looked like a peanut in the scans. His own name is odd though, Ingo Rademacher!!

Pirate and Pony?!? Oh dear lord....although I have to admit I am quite keen on Pebbles as a girls name....yes I know its ridiculous!!

That would be somehow confusing sometimes, like if your child was lost 'Hey, do you know where Number 16 Bus Shelter is?'. Not clever, nope.

Oh yeah, I thought of a couple others -- Matthew McConnaughey's brother, whose name is Rooster (yeah, that's his name) gave his kid the dignified moniker of Miller Lyte (after his fave beer, natch).

And probably the hands-down winner (or loser, more like) is Jermaine Jackson's kid, saddled tragically with the name Jermajesty.

Ok..yeah, most of those names are bad lol but I LOVE different names. I liked Gwyneth's choice of Apple for her daughter and I like the ones Demi picked, Rumer & Tellulah. Kim Basinger & whats his face picked Ireland for their daughter and I think that's really beautiful.

If I were to have children I wanted to name them Indigo Moon or Clover Field. Everyone always tells me I'm crazy.

I was actually considering changing my own name to Indigo, but I figured that nobody would stop calling me Bridget after 31 years...so it's kind of pointless LOL

Moon Unit and Dweezel (Zappa) don't seem nearly as strange as they did to me in the early '80's. I like a lot of unique names, but my favorites are still vintage and not at all "strange": Lola, Genevieve, Eleanor. Not sure I'll ever add Apple, Rumer (Willis), Blanket, or Moxie Crime Fighter (Penn Gillette's kid) to my list of faves.

Strange, I was having a conversation on this exact topic a couple days ago at work. One of the guys there is about to have a daughter, and him and his wife decided to name her Ximenia (CHEE-men-ee-ah). The discussion then turned to weird celebrity baby names after that.

This thread wouldn't be complete without two of the Zappa offspring,

Moon Unit and Dweezil Zappa.

I'm still holding out to see if some celebrity names their child Chewbacca.

Edit: Damn you ThatFatGirl! lol. That's what I get for walking away from the computer mid-posting...
Who the hell named their kid Blanket??

I love traditional names for girls like Violet, Ivy, Belle, Minnie, Enid, and I like unusual names like Pebbles, Coco, Moxie (I love that name now!!) etc.
For boys I love Link, Foley, Kit, Indy, Rocky etc.

I think that waaaaay too often people refuse to realize that babies will not stay babies, even with cutsie names. They will grow, and have to go to school, and kids can be really cruel over any perceived difference. (Any of us who grew up fat know this.)

When I was teaching in residential treatment centers, I ran into a few "odd" names. There were a couple young men saddled with the monikers "Major" and "Mister." And then there were others with strange spelling, just to make the name different. This caused all kinds of problems with legal documentation and paperwork, as well as initial pronunciation.

Don't get me wrong; I do think names with ethnic or family/ personal significance are a beautiful way to pay homage to one's culture and past. But beyond that, I really appreciate classic, traditional names. Frank and I had decided on names when we were trying to have kids: Rachel Marie for a girl and Benjamin Matthew for a boy. I'm also partial to John Walter (my two grandpas' first names).

Yeah, and when I was long-term subbing for a Spanish teacher, there was one who spelled it Lynz. (Lin-zee) I can't wait for her first resume and job interview

One of my co-workers told me her friends just had a baby girl and named her

Nevaeh (Neh-VI-yah) which is 'Heaven' spelled backwards...I LOVE that!!!!!!

Sounds almost Native American!

The local paper where I used to live in East Yorkshire detailed some of the worst names I have ever seen in their birth announcements section. It seems as though no-one in the area is capable of naming their child without concocting something ludicrous (Lola Bo, Kellinia, Sabby, Tirlyn) or putting a moronic slant on the spelling of a more traditional name (Emmalee, Aleecea, Rubi, Jaemes).

Recently, there was a "Christopher Robin" in there... which is surely a disaster waiting to happen. It maybe a cute idea for an infant, but I can't imagine it being said with anything other than a blush once the poor lad is past the age of eleven or so. Let's hope that they don't continue with the Hundred Acre Wood theme for any subsequent offspring. "Winnie" might be passable for a girl, but naming a child "Eeyore" would surely be some sort of violation of its human rights.
