These Celebrities Came Up With the Worst Baby Names

These Celebrities Came Up With the Worst Baby Names

While we may look up to celebrities for certain accomplishments or achievements they've made, one thing that's been made apparent in Hollywood that we don't agree with is their baby name choices. Choosing the most outrageous words as names, some of the celebs on this list have created the weirdest names we've ever heard. Looks like their children are going to have a difficult time explaining themselves when they grow up! 

1. North West

Kicking off our list is the daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. Named North West, the internet was abuzz when the news first kicked in that this famous power couple would be naming their child after directions.

2. Apple Martin

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin raised eyebrows everywhere when they named their daughter, Apple. Yup, while it's a common fruit, it's definitely an unconventional choice for a name.

3. Blue Ivy Carter

The daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z definitely has a name that'll stand out among a crowd. Blue Ivy is a name that's definitely as colourful as it is unique.

4. Pilot Inspektor Lee

Jason Lee's son, Pilot Inspektor, has a name that's not just uncommon—it's downright unusual. The inspiration reportedly came from a song, showcasing how some celebrities turn to their artistic influences when naming their children.

5. Moon Unit Zappa

Frank Zappa's daughter, Moon Unit, has a name that's as weird as his music was. Combining an astronomical body with the term 'unit', her name is a standout example of celebrity creativity in baby naming.

6. Bear Blaze Winslet

Kate Winslet's son, Bear Blaze, is also stuck with a name that's equally fierce and strange. We're not entirely sure where this inspiration came from, but we're not sure if we stand behind it.

7. Rumi & Sir Carter

Beyoncé and Jay-Z make another appearance on this list with their twins, Rumi and Sir. Rumi is a poetic and cultural reference, while Sir is a title of respect. While we can respect the intention and meaning behind the names, we're not sure if they work great as actual, well, names.

8. Kal-El Coppola Cage

Nicholas Cage, inspired by his love for comic books, named his son Kal-El after Superman's birth name. It's definitely a name that's pretty "out-there".

9. Gravity Blue Smith

Lucky Blue Smith and Stormi Bree chose the name Gravity for their daughter. We're pretty sure the word wasn't meant to be used as a name, but here we are regardless!

10. Audio Science Clayton

Shannyn Sossamon's son, Audio Science, has a name that sounds more like a college major than a baby's name. It's definitely creative, but do you like it?

11. Sparrow James Midnight Madden

Nicole Richie and Joel Madden chose Sparrow James Midnight for their son. It's certainly a long name...does it count as one?

14. Fuchsia Katherine Sumner

Sting and Frances Tomelty went with Fuchsia Katherine for their daughter. The name Fuchsia is colorful and vibrant, standing out just as much as the bright flower it's named after.

15. Rocket Zot Worthington

Actor Sam Worthington and Lara Bingle named their son Rocket Zot. Looks like Marvel and the Guardians of the Galaxy have inspired a new generation of baby names!

Leader singer of the popular band U2, Bono, also went down a more creative route in naming his daughter. With a name like Memphis Eve, it's sure to turn heads.

18. Bronx Mowgli Wentz

Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz chose the name Bronx Mowgli for their son. It's a strange combination of names, with Bronx represents a tough, urban vibe, while Mowgli adding a wild, adventurous spirit from the classic Jungle Book.

19. Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof

The late Peaches Geldof, daughter of Bob Geldof, seems to have had a thing for fruits and flowers. Combining both into the name "Peaches Honeyblossom", it's sweet, but also a bit of a mouthful.

20. Ocean Alexander

Forest Whitaker named his son Ocean Alexander, a name you wouldn't originally think could, well, be a name. It's definitely not the worst one on this list though!

21. Sage Moonblood Stallone

Sylvester Stallone's son, Sage Moonblood, carries a name that's incredibly distinct. We sure can't say we've met any other "Sage Moonbloods" in our lives, have you?

22. Destry Allyn Spielberg

Steven Spielberg's daughter, Destry Allyn, has a name that's unusual, but not entirely strange. It seems to be a more old-fashioned name, perhaps even inspired by the 1954 film "Destry"?

23. Pilot Jones

Actress and singer Keisha Castle-Hughes named her daughter Pilot Jones. We're pretty sure that's the second time a celebrity has named their child Pilot so maybe we're missing out on something here...

24. Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence

Michael Hutchence and Paula Yates chose Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily for their daughter. So, if we were to call her by her first name, is it Heavenly? Hiraani? Tiger? Lily? Or the whole thing all together?!

25. Moroccan Scott Cannon

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon named their son Moroccan Scott. We definitely haven't heard of that one before.

26. Exton Elias Downey

Robert Downey Jr. chose a name that sounds like it's straight out of a superhero comic for his son, Exton Elias. Maybe he was still in character as Iron Man when he chose the name?

27. Dusty Rose Levine

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo named their daughter Dusty Rose, a name that has both an adjective and a noun. We're not quite sure saying those two words together would immediately make us think of a name, but hey, that's what they went with.

28. Lyra Antarctica Seaborn Sheeran

Ed Sheeran and Cherry Seaborn's choice for their daughter's name, Lyra Antarctica, is certainly a unique one. While Lyra sounds quite nice, it's the Antarctica part we can't get over!

29. Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa

Frank Zappa, known for his unconventional choices, named his daughter Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. This name is an absolute mouthful and is as quirky and eccentric as Zappa’s own musical style, bordering on the whimsical and bizarre.

30. Bingham Hawn Bellamy

Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy named their son Bingham Hawn, a name that combines a unique first name with a nod to family heritage in the middle name, Hawn, which is Kate Hudson's mother's surname.

31. Elsie Otter Pechenik

Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik went with Elsie Otter for their daughter, a name that's both sweet and playful. Elsie is an adorable name, but the addition of "Otter" certainly takes it to the weird side.

32. Sunday Molly Myers

Mike Myers must love Sundays if he decided to name his daughter, Sunday Molly. We suppose inspiration for naming your child can come from anywhere.

35. Rosie Rainbow Horton

The daughter of Jenna and Henry Horton, Rosie Rainbow, has a name that's very colourful and definitely very cheerful. As far as the names on this list go, this one is pretty name, just something a bit more different than what the average person would name their child.

36. Sirius Benjamin Grint

Rupert Grint, known for his role in the Harry Potter series, pleased fans around the world when he named his daughter Sirius Benjamin. The name Sirius, a star name, is also a character from the magical world of Harry Potter. While it's not something we would go for ourselves, it's definitely a fun callback for any Harry Potter fan.

37. Jermajesty Jackson

Jermaine Jackson went for a regal touch with his son's name, Jermajesty. This name combines his own name with the majesty of royalty, creating a completely new title that's well, pretty strange.

38. Banjo Patrick Taylor

Actress Rachel Griffiths and artist Andrew Taylor named their son Banjo Patrick. The name Banjo, inspired by Australian poet Banjo Paterson, reflects a cultural homage and a love for music.

39. Kulture Kiari Cephus

Cardi B and Offset chose the name Kulture Kiari for their daughter, a name that's pretty distinctive and also a bit stylish. It's not a terrible name by any means, it's just very unique and out there.

40. X Æ A-12 Musk

Elon Musk and Grimes broke the internet with their son's name, X Æ A-12, a name we're not even sure how to pronounce. Their son is definitely going to have a hard time explaining his name growing up.

41. Cosimo Henri Busson

44. Bluebell Madonna Halliwell

Geri Halliwell, better known as Ginger Spice, named her daughter Bluebell Madonna. Bluebell is a pretty word, but when you think about it as a name, it's quite strange.

45. Buddy Bear Maurice Oliver

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools named their son Buddy Bear Maurice. It's a cute name when he's kid, but we're not sure about "Buddy Bear" as he gets older.
