It seems that the days of naming your son or daughter with your own name and adding a second, third or a fourth sign in roman numerals at the end are fading away. This seems to be especially the case with celebrities. The more unique, the better! As to whether celebrities are simply a little loopy, or whether they simply like the attention that a unique baby name will bring, we do not know. What we do know is that the names just keep getting crazier and crazier. Below is a list of some of our favorite celebrity baby names over the years.
Banjo - Patrick & Rachel Griffiths. This choice of name was based on the main character from 'The man who came to dinner'.
Apple - Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin. We don't even think the parents understand why they chose this name!
Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lilly, Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches Honeyblossom - Paula Yates. Definetely three of the most 'out there' names in the history of baby names!
Jett - John Travolta & Kelly Preston. Well, John has always loved airplanes, so we'll let them get away with this one.
Zowie - David Bowie. Doesn't seem that bad, until you realise that with the last name it makes "Zowie Bowie".
Rumer Glenn, Tallulah Belle, Scout LaRue - Bruce Willis & Demi Moore. At least there are some normal names mixed in there, but still among our craziest!
Daisey Boo - Jamie Oliver. Typical celebrity, had to chuck in the "Boo" at the end.
Pilot Inspektor - Scott Lee & Beth Riesgrat. This kid is going to have a hard time at school.
Milo - Ricky Lake. This is okay, just so long as she doesn't name her second child "Otis".
Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q - Bono. Bono had definetely put some thought into this one!
Prince Michael, Prince Michael II, Paris Michael - Michael Jackson. We think this is just too many Michaels for one house hold.
Dexter, Diane Keaton. Only just acceptable for a boy, but would you believe this is her daughters name?
Moon Unit, Ahmet Emuukha Roden, Dreezil, Diva - Frank Zappa. Once again, among the craziest baby names in history.
Ocean, True, Sonnet - Forest Whitaker. We dont't mind the name Sonnet, but you can make your own mind up on the other two.
Betty Kitten, Honey Kinney, Harvey Kirby - Jane Goldman & Jonathan Ross. We wouldn't name our kids these names, but they do have a nice ring to them.
