Top 10 terrible celebrity baby names

We know choosing a baby name can be hard, but these take the biscuit.

We thought ‘North’ was bad, but the announcement that Kim/Kanye’s latest addition to the West brood will be called ‘Saint’ is just another sad reminder of the celebrity affliction that is TERRIBLE baby naming. They just can’t help themselves, can they? So, for the sake of all ‘Boys named Sue’ (or Girls named North) out there, we’ve rounded up some of our all time favourite terrible celebrity baby names. Parents: don’t do it!

Moon Unit and Diva Thin MuffinUnknown

Parent: Frank Zappa

Why? Blame the acid.

Kal-Elimages-1

Parent responsible: Nicholas Cage

Why? After superman, because what kid doesn’t want to share a name with a superhero?

 

Appleimages-2

Parent responsible: Chris Martin

Why? Because, we quote: “apples are so sweet and they’re so wholesome, and it’s biblical and it’s just, they’re so, and I just thought it sounded so lovely…” That’s that cleared up then.

Sage Moonbloodimages-3

Parent responsible: Sylvester Stallone

Why? We’re putting it down to too many action movies (and fake blood).

Pilot Inspektorimages

Parent responsible: Jason Lee

Why? Because he heard a song by the band Grandaddy called ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot’. Hmm.

Memphis EveUnknown-1

Parent responsible: Bono

Why? Because a dad called Bono with silly glasses wasn’t enough.

 

SpurgeonUnknown-2

Parents responsible: Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald

Why? It might sound like a species of fish or Scotland’s first minister (neither very appealing), but little Spurgeon was in fact named after a 19th century Baptist preacher.

JermajestyUnknown-3

Parent responsible: Michael Jackson’s brother Jermaine

Why? Because ‘Her Majesty’ was taken.

 

DenimUnknown-6

Parent responsible: Toni Braxton

Why? Because suede, leather and cord didn’t sound right.

Audio ScienceUnknown-5

Parent responsible: Shannyn Sossamon

Why? Oh, just because.
