100 strangest celebrity baby names The richer the parents are, the less likely you are to be teased. Just ask Tallulah, Rumer and Scout.

Something strange seems to happen to your decision-making skills when you’re a celebrity thinking up baby names.

A nice Emily or Sarah or Melissa? Soo not Hollywood. Names like Brian, William or Ken? Yeah, right. Because, apparently, when you’re a big-time star — be it actor, musician, model or athlete — it seems there is a weird-quotient that must be factored in when it comes to your child’s name. Whether you borrow from the supermarket (Apple, Sage, Thyme), an atlas (Bronx, Brooklyn, Memphis) or superhero-sound-alikes (Kal-el, Moxie CrimeFighter, Pilot Inspektor), stars are guaranteeing their offspring will stand out in one way or another.

  1. My niece worked in Labor and Delivery at the local hospital. She helped deliver a set of twins who were named…LeMonjello and Oranjello.

    • LOL – we have families in town here whose children are: “Pelvic”, “Canary”, “Vargina”, and “Lipoma”

    • I worked in an er in Jacksonville Fla and we had twins that came in named yellowjello and orangejello. Of course she pronounced it differently like yallangolo and orlangelo. Those boys will be picked on their whole life

    • hahaha that is awesome. Were they by chance in the ypsilanti/ann arbor michigan area? My roommates dad is a parole officer in washtenaw county michigan and he told us about a mom bringing her twin sons in for their meeting and their names were Oranjello and Lemonjello.

  2. Famous people don’t need to worry about what other people think of their kids names, afterall, the kid won’t be out in the real world much.

    • Thank God…can you imagine the face on some people when you tell them your name is Tabooger, Moxie CrimeFighter, Rocket or Pirate?? Just saying it makes me feel trippy….they are going to think these kids are drunk or high as they grow. If I was them Id kick my parents ass and as soon as I was able to do so….go to the courthouse and change MY NAME!!!

  3. Most of the names are NOT wierd. The author of the article has NO imagination. I thought such a talent was a prerequisite for being in this field. Even Enstein said Imagination was MORE important than intelligence. It is de regeur for all serious livestock breeders to have original names for the products of their breeding. THE most famous Holstein of all Times, who has been dead for at least 45 years was : Round Tree Rag Apple Elevation. “Elevation” bloodlines are still advertiosed in Dairy magazines and a lucky few might still have his frozen sperm. Native Americans routinely have imaginative names. They did not have Christian names until after their land was stolen and their culture forbidden. How would you like to be named John Smith CXX ! Although the Irish used the same limited number of names, there were always nicknames to distiguis one James Smith from the dozens of others. Sometimes the even used the words on the side of a boxcar as a nickname.
    I thought we should celebrate diversity, nes pas ?
