Celebrities live in and love the attention. But then fame probably goes to their heads and makes them do strange things like choosing really weird and ridiculous names for their babies. What’s worse is that some of these bad cases of celebrity baby names are from repeat offenders. Maybe because any publicity is good publicity, ain’t that right?
Here’s a list of the worst celebrity baby names we’ve seen.
Kim K and Kanye West’s bundle of joy is called North West. Makes you feel like you are orienteering on a course and you’re headed north. If you were wondering why they chose this strange name, Kim clarifies at an NPR interview, “I don’t like South West, though, because that’s like — you know, North will always, you know, be better… I don’t think we’ll go with another direction.” What?
Quite a mouthful – that’s what can be said about the son of artist M.I.A. (Maya Arulpragasam) and Benjamin Bronfman. This one makes the list of strange celebrity kid names also because we aren’t certain what this combination of names mean or how to pronounce them. Surely not going to be the popular one at school that’s for sure. Imagine growing up with the initials I.R.A.
The darling daughter of Forest Whitaker and Keisha Nash, True is truly her name. We aren’t sure whether the parents were going for True Summer (because she was born in July) or whether she is True Isabella (Will the true Isabella please stand up?). Her siblings are Sonnet Noel Whitaker and Ocean Whitaker. So, it does run in the family.
Yes, that is really the name of Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson’s little girl. While each of these names may hold a special significance for the parents, why burden one child with all of them? Thankfully, her friends and family know her as Luna.
