Jay-Z and Beyonce had their baby over the weekend and peeps have been in an uproar since hearing that the baby’s name is Blue Ivy Carter rather than Ivy Blue Carter. Even though Blue is quite a unique name for a child, trust me, there are a lot more interesting celebrity baby names out there! We found the ten strangest. Peep them below!
10. Bear Blu
Alicia Silverstone and her husband Christopher Jarecki welcomed their son on May 5th, 2011 and named him Bear Blue Jarecki. I’m Bear Blue! Hear me roar!
9. Pilot Inspektor
Jason Lee and his woman named their kid Pilot Inspektor. Apparently it was all because of a song he hear by the band Grandaddy called “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot”. Umm, okay?
Not banana. Not orange. Not pear and not melon. Out of all the fruits out there, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris named their child Apple. Of their lovely name selection the couple said, “Right, well, um, basically it was because when we were first pregnant, her daddy said, if it’s, basically one day he just said if it’s a girl I think her name should be Apple. And I just, it sounded so sweet, and it conjures such a lovely picture for me, you know apples are so sweet and they’re wholesome, and it’s biblical and it’s just, they’re so, and I just thought it sounded so lovely and …”
David Duchovny and Tea Leoni named their little munchkin Kyd. I’m not sure whether to chuckle because I can just about imagine David and Tea shouting at their child “You’re in trouble now, KID!” or if I should cry for that poor kid who had no choice in the matter.
Forest Whitaker named his son Ocean but he has a reason. Whitaker was quoted as saying, “I want those names to be their destiny, for my daughter (True) to be honest and my son to be expansive. I try to be like a forest, revitalizing and constantly growing.”
Hopefully he means oceans pre litter and smelly dead fish.
Blanket is Michael Jackson’s youngest child. He named his first boy Prince Michael, which isn’t half bad but after technically naming his second boy Prince Michael II, he decided to add the nickname Blanket.
Robert Rodriguez is a big fan of the letter “R”. He named his five children Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue and Rhiannon.
3. Blue Angel
Blue Angel is the daughter of U2′s The Edge. I guess he named his daughter after a stunt fighter pilot? And see…Jay-Z and Beyonce weren’t THAT original with their name choice.
Jermajesty is the child of you guessed it…Jermaine Jackson.
1. Tu Morrow
Numb3rs actor Rob Morrow must have lived in the hippie era to go with this name pun. Those every year first days of school must be a nightmare for this poor girl.
Other notables: Jamie Oliver’s daughter PETAL BLOSSOM RAINBOW and Frank Zappa’s children MOON UNIT, DWEEZIL AND DIVA MUFFIN.
