Top 20 Strengest Celebrity Baby Names Ever
Zzyzx, Nimrod, Moo, Lucifer, and Dzyre are just some of the unfortunate names given to babies. Most celebrities are part of a community called “creative artists”, treating their babies’ names like artworks. Sometimes, these masterpieces don’t sound good as they thought they would be. They give their babies names far cry from generic ones. These days, celebrities giving weird baby names is not surprising, but these are just really flying off the handle!
1.Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale
Even though Pamela Redmond Satran, a baby name expert and co-author of The Baby Name Bible complimented Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale for giving their baby, the name Zuma Nesta Rock, it doesn’t change the fact that he could get some bullying from his schoolmates for his weird name. You’re probably surprised as well that this 2008 baby is a boy and not a girl.
According to Gwen, Zuma is the name of the beach in Malibu, California, which is a known to be a famous surf spot. His middle name, Nesta means messenger, the same given name to Bob Marley. Like their oldest son, Kingston James McGregor, they also gave him a second middle name which is Rock.
2.Bronx Mowgli Wentz
Bronx Mowgli, the name given to the oldest child of Ashlee Simpson and her ex-husband, Pete Wentz was dissed as the Worst Celebrity Baby Name of 2008 by BabyNames.com. In the future, this kid will probably need therapy after knowing his name made it on the list. He already suffered enough after his parents broke up. He may be thinking right now that it’s his fault why they separated, imagining his mommy and daddy could still be together if he had a better name.
Cleary, the former couple didn’t realize choosing a name after a New York Suburb and a character from the Jungle Book is the perfect equation of having one of the worst baby names in Hollywood.
3.Yamma Noyola Brown
The late James Brown, a famous singer, and his second wife, Deidre Jenkins, named their daughter Yamma Noyola Brown. Both married in 1970 and separated in the year 1979. Her name just proved that the trend of celebrities giving weird names to their children goes even back to the early 1970s.
Even until now, the meaning behind her name is still not explained. Speculations say that the couple got the name while attending on a church service, where they use their mother tongue. Not only that, Yamma’s definition as a slang term for female sex organ received several likes on the urban dictionary.
His father didn’t just leave her an awful name but also terrifying memories of her dad repeatedly subjecting her mother to domestic abuse.
Luckily, Yamma didn’t inherit the baby name trend and gave her children normal names: Sydney and Carrington.
4.Cricket Pearl Silverstein
You may think that the parents who named their baby Cricket Pearl Silverstein are either fans of the sport or a collector of the bugs.
The middle name Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein gave to their daughter could have been a beautiful name until the first name Cricket ruined the beginning.
After knowing their baby’s gender, Busy decided to ask her husband to help her making a name since he has experience creating names for his television shows and films. According to Marc Silverstein, the star of Cougar Town, he envisions the name to give her daughter an adventurous future ahead of her.
Cricket’s older sister, Birdie, didn’t share the same tragic faith. 5 years before her, Birdie’s name was adored by a lot of people especially the second name given to her which is Leigh.
5.Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher
With Wyatt as a French term for “little guy”, mixing it with a girly second name, Isabelle is another poor mix-up for a baby’s name. Wyatt Isabelle is the daughter of Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis.
Even with the harsh and hateful feedbacks for the unusual name they gave to their daughter, they still think they made a good decision. According to the couple, it wasn’t the name they prepared long before she got pregnant. Mila just said one night that the name they made before it wasn’t the right one. The first name came from an inspiration at a sporting event. The second name, Isabelle is to add up some heritage to their daughter’s name.
6.Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen Zappa
The youngest child wasn’t exempted, like her older siblings, Moon, Dweezil, and Ahmet, her parents, Frank Zappa, and Gail Zappa decided to give her one of the worst and weirdest names: Diva Think Muffin Pigeen.
According to her father, he and his wife gave her the first name Diva for being noisy as a baby. You could hear her shouts and cries as far as 300 yards. As confused as you are, we still don’t have answers to the rest of her name. Some say that “Muffin” was a theme Frank would usually use.
But despite her odd name, she was successful in life as an American artist.
7.Titan Jewell Witherspoon
Last November 4, 2015, Kelly Rowland gave birth to her first son with Tim Weatherspoon and named him Titan Jewell.
For a fragile baby like him, Titan is surely a strong name. According to Tim and Kelly, they got his first name from Saturn’s largest moon. However, since he’s still a baby, there will be people trying on ridiculous nicknames like Tit and Titty.
People are still confused as well as to why they would add another “l” to the name Jewel. It may sound like a fail attempt to make the name more masculine for their baby boy. Also they think it’s wrong to associate the child’s name with a sad story about a wrongfully convicted person during a 1996 bombing.
8.Speck Wildhorse Mellencamp
The name Speck Wildhorse Mellencamp is the name given to the son of the rock star John Mellencamp and model Elaine Irwin. His name, more bizarre than North West, is one of the proofs that Celebrities are most likely the worst at giving names to their newborn children.
Speck is a name you shouldn’t give to a child if you want him to be as famous and as significant as his mommy and daddy. And it’s just getting worse after his parents gave a second name of “Wildhorse”, a name suitable for a horse or a dog and not a human being. I wouldn’t be surprised if he and his brother get into fist fights. Who wouldn’t get irritated with that nickname?
9.Rainbow Aurora Rotella
Rainbow Aurora was the cute girl name given by her parents, a playboy bunny, Holly Madison and an author, Pasquale Rotella. However, the cuteness of the name doesn’t give it a free pass from being on the list of the worst celebrity baby names.
I bet her mother, as a former Playmate, picked this name for her daughter. It’s no surprise especially if she’ll name her next child Unicorn whether he’s a guy or a girl.
Rainbow Aurora is a name more suitable for a teddy bear and not a baby.
10.Egypt Daoud Dean
Last 2010, Alicia Keys and Kaseem Dean’s son, Egypt Daoud, hits the second place on the list of the worst celebrity names on BabyCenter.com. They didn’t even bother to defend their son’s name by explaining the meaning of his name. It could make it less worse, but I doubt it.
How do you even make a nickname from Egypt or Daoud? Can I call him, Iggy? If they’re going to name their son after a country, no one knows the reason for choosing Egypt. Research brought is the meaning of his middle name, Daoud which is an Arabic term for David.
11.Qirin Love Howard
Aubrey, Heaven and Hunter, it started well until, Miranda Park and Terrence Howard decided to name their fourth child, Qirin Love Howard. They’re officially both members of the club of celebrities who are bad at giving names to their babies.
They named their son after a mythical Chines creature called as the “qilin” which is known to visit before a time of prosperity. And obviously, his wife loved the idea.
But his name would be the least of the kid’s problems after the knowledge that his parents’ divorced happened before he was even born.
12.Pilot Inspektor Lee
An English profession, A Swedish term for an inspector and an Asian surname is not the perfect combination for a great baby name. Meet Pilot Inspektor Lee, the son of an American Actress Beth Riesgraf and an American actor Jason Lee (doesn’t look Asian at all).
The opening song of The Sophtware album inspired Beth to choose the first name for their son. Naming his kid after a job is a good sign he should stop trying to make people laugh. Why had the first track? He could have waited longer and made a cooler name for his son. Naming him with two careers will just confuse him in the future. Maybe he’ll retort to being a Shaolin master, we don’t know.
13.Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa
The longest worst celebrity name on the list belongs to the child of Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa. On December 15, 2008, Lisa gave birth to a son: Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. His name is surely is a mouthful and cringeworthy.
The only possible explanation of how he came up with this name is by randomly picking letters and arranging them to have sense. Guess what? It doesn’t, at all. And because nobody likes to lose air from calling out his long name, he’ll probably get some worse nicknames like Nak, Nam, and Man.
Is there a like a book of translations of this awfully long name? I don’t even want to know what lies behind that name.
14.Fuschia Kate Sumner
Fuschia Kate Sumner is the daughter of Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner, also known as “Sting” and Frances Tomelty. She was born in London, Englan on April 17, 1982, as Fuschia Katherin Sumner.
There is no explanation of her daughter’s name. However, defining fuschia as a vivid purplish red color is taken from the plant with the same name after the German botanist Leonhart Fuchs.
It was a good choice for the actress to go on with just the name Kate Sumner compared to her full name which is really long and weird.
15.Lyric Sonny Roads Goldberg
Baffled between being a title of a lyrics or a name of a road, No one can stop Soleil Moon Frye and her husband Jason Goldberg from naming their third child Lyric Sonny Roads Goldberg. I’m in a fog right now trying to figure out the name.
It’s not a surprise for this married couple to give their son an unusual name. In fact, her two other children are given names of Jagger Joseph Blue and Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg, respectively. But musically speaking, she’s very consistent with her children’s name. Does her husband have even any say to this nonsense?
Why wouldn’t a strange name like Kal-El ring bells in your ears? After all, it is the Kryptonian name of Superman, a role, Kal-El’s father, Nicolas Cage almost landed. But when he didn’t, he just gave it to his son instead. The kid’s middle name, Coppola came from a relative director, Francis Ford Coppola.
Before Kal-El Coppola Cage was born in 2005, Nicolas Cage and his wife, Alice Kim decided to have a unique name (like duh!). His first thought was Kyleand before remembering Superman.
The name may sound like out of this world, but it’s less worse than Kayleand or Superman.
In 2000, Jermajesty Jackson was the name given to the son of Jermaine and Alejandra Jackson. Their son’s name is an example of an epic fail of trying to make a unique name.
Jermaine wanted to keep the name pattern on her children, starting their names with the letter “J”. Since he wanted his fourth child’s name to be inferior, he wanted to add the word majesty to it. Thus, mixing up Jeremy and Majesty. You may think it actually happened, but it didn’t. It’s just an “intellectual guess” that you’ll have to admit that can hit the bull’s eye.
18.Harlow Winter Kate Madden
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden’s daughter’s name, Harlow Winter Kate could be a little bit longer for a baby’s name. They could have just named their daughter, Kate. But like other celebrities, they defy the rules of baby name-giving.
Harlow is a rare name, which is hard to know if the child having that name is a boy or a girl. But according to the couple, the name means “from the mounds of the people”.
Aside from the unique-baby-name celebrity trend, Harlow is also a part of another trend that honors Classic Hollywood. Other names of the trend include Ryan Phillippe, Ava Gardner and many more. The trend also allows parents to name their daughters with surnames like Harlow.
Naming their son Kyd Miller is probably worse compared to his failed relationship with the child’s mother, Tea Leoni and terrible acting on the television series, Californication.
We can notice how the name Kyd sounds like the word kid. Clearly, they didn’t have originality or even a little hint of uniqueness to the name. It’s like they just changed the “i” to “y” and viola! You already have a name for your kid. Who are they even kyding?
Lucky for him, his parents made a little effort and decided on the second name for him: Miller. Now, he can choose to be called that but, the bullies will disagree to that.
20.Moxie Crimefighter Jillette
Having Crimefighter added to your name may sound badass but not to the daughter of Penn Jillette, a famous magician, and Emily Zolten. Born on 22nd of May, 2006, they gave their daughter the name Moxie Crimefighter Jillette.
The explanation for the name of their other child, Zolten was easy. But for their daughter, there was a little bit of explaining to do. According to Penn, Moxie is a brand of a drink. Her wife loved a staff’s idea of using CrimeFighter as their child’s middle name which is a line from one of his husband’s published books.
Even with the odd name, it surely helped her mom get exempted from a speeding ticket after driving the car too fast.
