Baby Names

There is no shortage of weird celebrity baby names -- in fact, the hard part is narrowing the list down! When a celebrity has a baby, everything from where the couple registers for presents to the hospital where the mom-to-be births gets examined. Perhaps it's that inherent intrusiveness that leads stars to use some truly unusual and wacky baby names? Whatever the reason, check out our pick of the top 25 weird celebrity baby names.

Celebrities can have some pretty unusual tastes in baby names. We devoured lists of stars and their babies to come up with the 25 most unusual celebrity baby names.

25. Hopper

When a congressmen submits a proposed bill in the House of Representatives, he or she puts it ceremoniously into the hopper, a brown wooden box located on the floor of the house.

Hopper is also the name of the son of Sean Penn and Robin Wright, which Penn said in a 2004 interview with New York Magazine, that he and his like liked the name "aesthetically."

24. Apple

It's the forbidden fruit, it'll keep the doctor away and it's the epitome of Americanism. But Apple is also the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's first daughter. They got the idea from one of Martin's bandmates, who also has a child named Apple.

In an interview with Oprah, Paltrow said that she liked how it sounded "wholesome" and "clean." Pictured is Gwyneth and her children, Apple and her son Moses -- whose name could also make our list!

23. Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo and Petal Blossom Rainbow

Leave it to a renowned chef to bring in vibrant names to the table when naming their children. Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, named their daughters Poppy, Daisy and Petal. Apparently the floral motif is big for naming in the Oliver clan.

22. Calico, Dash and Sonora Rose

What name purrs like a kitten? Alice Cooper and wife Sheryl's daughter Calico. But move over, commonly colored cat, this Calico is a talented singer and actress. Cooper's penchant for unusual names also extended to his other kids, Dash and Sonora Rose. (I think my bathroom walls are painted Sonora Rose.)

21. Sage Moonblood and Seargeoh

When you hear the names of this pair, you can't help but get stuck on Sage Moonblood. What does that even mean? But look past it, and see Seargeoh ... then picture dad Sylvester Stallone pronouncing it. It just fits.

They should add little Blue Ivy Carter to this list...since when did Beyonce go this crazy? But I guess she can feel safe because she won't be teased about her name once she enters,perhaps,middle school...I mean look at who her parents are! ...same goes for the super-angelic-cute Harper Seven Beckham! Speaking of weird and unique names,look at what my parents named me...Ileana!!!!!!!

names can mean different things in different languages. For example Tom Cruise's daughter is Suri. Suri means in Estonian language (a country in Europe) '(someone) died' (past tense of the verb die) I wouldn't like to have kid's name meaning something like that...

Some of these names are more viable than others. The Angelina Jolie clan may have unusual names but they're kind of cool. I've secretly always liked Kal-El (Superman). I think probably you might want to rethink this: Spike Lee in all likelihood named his son after Satchel Paige, the best baseball player in the Negro Leagues and NOT after a messenger bag. It's more a traditional name and not so strange after all.

FYI, Satchel is the name of a pioneer black sports figure, Satchel Paige, a baseball player in the early days of (segregated) baseball. And for the record re my own name, I am Hawaiian, and my name Kehau is the short form of Kehaulani ("heavenly morning dew") because of the time of my birth. Besides some of these celeb names being stupid, they have no real meaning, other than their prents think the name is cute. That says nothing, it's empty, like some of their heads, apparently.

Celebrities are just as dumb as "regular" people when it comes to giving ridiculous names to their sweet, helpless babies!
