As celebrity due dates draw near, enthralled fans tune begin to play the name game and wonder what their favorite celebrities will choose to call the new baby. In many cases, fans couldn’t have possibly guessed the zany or off-beat names that celebrities have given to their children. The following are the Top 5 craziest celebrity baby names that have made headlines and shocked throngs of fans!
Prince Michael II
What do you do when the best baby name ever is already taken by your first son, Prince Michael? No problem for the Prince of Pop, Michael Jackson. He just stuck “II” at the end of the name and avoided any hardship searching through the baby name books with nothing but peasant names. Prince Michael II may not be original, from a certain perspective, but Blanket, his nickname, certainly is most unusual!
As directions go, it’s got the Oregon coast, Seattle, and even Vancouver. Northwest can be a great destination depending on where you sit on the globe. As a given name for a newborn, it might be slightly off-track. As fans recently may have heard reports from sites like www.DirectTVDeal.com, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have, indeed, named their recently born daughter North West. Arguably East has a more feminine ring, but since West West would have clearly hinted at the prior Jackson redundancy, the much-followed couple have settled on North West, a truly admirable compass point.
Jason Lee’s name for his son did spark headlines and lead many to call the name crazy. Though it sounds like a Star Trek career, it’s simply a name the actor quite liked. Pilot, as many a reader will remember, was the name of Mr. Rochester’s dog in Jane Eyre. Inspektor is oddly reminiscent of the cartoon Inspector Gadget—though he used the traditional “c” spelling. Zany and, perhaps, lamentable from a purist’s point of view, Pilot Inspektor will at least never know the pain of being the fourth Ashley in class or the third Tyler.
Chef Jamie Oliver and his wife Jools like quirky names as evidenced by their other children and their unusual names—Poppy Honey, Blossom Rainbow, and Daisy Boo. Buddy Bear, in consideration of those, is really rather tame; they might have called him Bitty Bunny or Unicorn Dew.
Levi Johnston (the ex-boyfriend of Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol) and his girlfriend Sunny Oglesby have given a most unusual name to their baby daughter. Italian gun manufacturers like Beretta are cool if you happen to be a gun collector, but aren’t typically associated with sweet little girls. Breeze, of course, is not exactly run of the mill, but given her mother’s name, Sunny and Breeze will go hand in hand.
Certainly there are other wacky celebrity names out there. Who could forget Frank Zappa’s kids, Moon Unit and Dweezil? Some honorable mentions for this list have to go to Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple and Sylvester Stallone’s son Sage Moonblood. When it comes to naming babies, you never know what to expect from celebrities who are expecting!
