No middle name, thank God! That would have been a nice middle name – Saint God West. Any chance you might add that Kim?
While the announcement was accompanied by huge online backlash about the name choice, it also sparked a lot of debates about other celebrities who are guilty of the same pleasure = being too creative when naming their offspring.
Let me get one thing clear – there is absolutely nothing wrong with this little bundle of joy and we wish him and his family lots of happiness and sky high views on their reality show!
The problem is other celebrities think along the same lines. “I bet no one else has a kid called Moon Bridge!!” Must be original at all costs!
[blockquote author=”” pull=”pullright”]To be hones I have no idea why would you name your kid Ocean or Moon. Do you? If yes, please do let me know! I’m dying to find out![/blockquote]
Ah, another good one – Audio. Middle name Science. While I’m all for expressing your personality and creative side, I cannot help but feel sorry for the kid whose first job on the first day of school will be explaining why his mother named him Audio Science. She’s not even a singer.
In my modest opinion, if you want to get creative with the name, think a bit ahead and ask yourself if it’s a name that your kid would want to change when he or she is 18.
If you’re not sure, at least, give him or her semi-normal middle name so that he or she can use that one instead. I would say that’s a fair call!
BUT – as expected, celebrities do their best to avoid any normality or to be average.
If you thought Saint West was outrageous, pretentious, ridiculous or simply bonkers, you haven’t seen nothing yet.
Here’s a list of top 10 crazy celebrity baby names.
Pick your favourite one, but please DO NOT call your kid the same!
1. Moon Unit
Hi, My Name is Moon Unit Zappa. No, my Dad wasn’t an astronaut. He was just hoping to make it to the moon one day, and now he’s got his moon at home.
2. Audio Science
No, not a subject in your local college. That’s the son of Shannyn Sossamon.
Tech brand, fruit, and daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow. Even Gwyneth herself couldn’t quite clearly explain why they picked that name. It was something to do with a random chat they had with Chris and said Apple reminded them of something sweet and innocent.
4. Tu Morrow
That’s a first name and surname. Yes, not middle!!! There is no way two sober adults would come up with something like this.
5. Moxie Crimefighter
If you’re an aspiring celebrity, the best way to get people talking about you is to pick a ridiculous name for your kid. Mission accomplished.
6. Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily
Was that Paula Yates’ favourite resort in Hawaii?
7. Princess Tiaamii
One day she will wake up and won’t be a princess anymore. And there’s nothing she can do about; she’s stuck with this name.
Son of Toni Braxton. Here are few suggestions for his brother – Suede, Cashmere (for a girl) or Flannel. How cool is that??
A son of Korn frontman Jonathan Davis and porn-star wife, Deven. Not sure what to say. At least, they didn’t call him Durex.
Daughter of Arthur Ashe. Because Nikon and Canon were taken.
I’m afraid to say the list keeps going:
Free – son of Barbara Hershey and David Carradine, who later changed his name to Timothy. I would suggest “Spirit” as middle name, wouldn’t you??
Satchel (Woody Allen and Mia Farrow) who later changed his name to Ronan
Mars Merkaba (Erykah Badu and Jay Electronica) who will probably have a little sister called Moon Rover
Diva Thin Muffin – daughter of serial name offender Frank Zappa,
Dweezil – that’s same guy’s son!
Jermajesty – son of Jermaine Jackson, talking about majesty …
Reign, son of Courtney Kardashian
Ocean – name Forest Whitaker gave his son because he wanted to show his destiny and be “expansive.”
Summer Rain – Christina Aguilera + Matthew Rutler, cute!
Saint Laszlo – another Saint to join the celebrity line
Titan Jewell – child of Kelly Rowland and Timothy Witherspoon. Jewell in your crown.
Ok, be honest – if you HAD to name your kid one of these names, which one would you find least offending and most bearable? Leave a comment bellow!
