13 Most Unusual Celebrity Child Names Of All Time

RealClear Contributor


Ahh the strange world of celebrity parenting. It seems that celebrities, royalty, civilians, and everyone in between have embraced the trend of picking a "unique" name for their child so that they can stand out from the crowd. How ironic.

There is certainly no shortage of weird celebrity baby names, it's actually the opposite— the hard part was narrowing the list down. The names here will make Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby, North West, look like the most normal name you have ever seen.

Click through the top 13 celebrity baby names, and perhaps find inspiration for when you need an unusual moniker!

13. Jermajesty & Jaafar Jackson

Parents: Singer Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Genevieve Oaziaza.

No stranger to the unusual– Jermaine Jackson named 2 of his 8 children Jermajesty (as in "her majesty"?) and Jaafar.  

Their mother, Oaziaza, also had 2 children by Jermaine's brother (their uncle), making the 2 other kids simultaneously their cousins and siblings.

12. Bluebell Madonna Halliwell

Parents: Singer Geri Halliwell and screenwriter Sacha Gervasi.

The former Spice Girl named her daughter Bluebell because, "the bluebell is increasingly rare– so it's a precious flower, which seems just right for my daughter." Plus, the required Madonna tribute for girl power, obviously.

11. Audio Science Clayton

Parents: Actress Shannyn Sossamon and author Dallas Clayton.

This poor child's name sounds more like an introductory college course than, you know, an actual human name.

10. Fifi Trixibelle

Parents: Singer Bob Geldolf and writer Pamela Yates

Fifi Trixibelle was named after Bob's Aunt Fifi, and was later joined by sisters Peaches Honeyblossom (RIP) and Little Pixie Geldof.

9. Speck Wildhorse & Hud Mellencamp

Parents: Musician John Mellencamp and model Elaine Irwin.

Considering John called himself "Cougar" for more than half of his career, it isn't too surprising he named one of his 5 children "Wildhorse." Speck and Hud, on the other hand, are inexplicable.

8. Tallulah Belle, Scout LaRue, & Rumer Glenn Willis

Parents: Actress Demi Moore and actor Bruce Willis.

Everyone knows this A-list Hollywood family, and their 3 famous daughters with oddly-unique monikers. 

7. Pilot Inspektor

Parents: Actor Jason Lee and actress Beth Riesgraf

Jason Lee named his boy after a song from the indie band Grandaddy called, "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot."

At least his name is a solid idea for a career when he is older! 

6. Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale

Parents: Singer Gwen Stefani and musician Gavin Rossdale

Gwen Stefani has always had a funky punk rock style and her sons' names reflect that. Her 2nd son, Zuma Nesta Rock, joined older brother Kingston James McGregor, and preceded his younger brother, Apollo Bowie Flynn Rossdale in the family lineup.

5. Memphis Eve Sunny Day Hewson

Parents: Singer Bono (aka Paul David Hewson) and activist Ali Hewson.

The 2nd daughter of superstar Bono goes by her middle name, Eve. She was named after being born on July 7 at 7:00, while "Eve" is the middle of the word "seven." Pretty clever!


4. Princess Tiaamii Crystal Esther Andre, Jett Riviera Hayler, & Bunny Hayler

Parents: British model/ reality superstar Katie Price and singer Peter Andre (Princess); male stripper Kieran Hayler (Jett & Bunny).

Katie Price (aka "Jordan") is one of the richest and most (in)famous women in the United Kingdom— She gained notoriety from being a glamour model always in the tabloids, to reality TV legend, and now a business woman. 

Price has been married 3 times, has 5 kids, and loves to be flamboyant in all aspects of her life, including the naming of her children, clearly.

3. Birdie Leigh & Cricket Pearl

Parents: Actress Busy Philipps and screenwriter Marc Silverstein

Busy Phillips doesn't care what you think about her kids name, but she has a sense of humor about it as she tweeted, "It's weird people think my kids will be in therapy because of their names. Guys, my kids will be therapy for LOTS of reasons, I'm sure.."

2. Moon Unit, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan, & Diva Thin Muffin

Parents: Musician Frank Zappa and Gail Zappa.

The Zappa family had 4 children, all with interesting names that are reminiscent of Zappa's heritage and storied musical career. They are called Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan, and Diva Muffin.

1. Daisy Boo Pamela, Petal Blossom Rainbow, Buddy Bear Maurice, & Poppy Honey Rosie Oliver

Parents: Chef Jamie Oliver and Juliette Norton.

British people sure love their wacky names!

Yes, all 4 of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver's kids could be cartoon characters, judging by their names alone. They sure look as adorable as their names sound though!
