'Unique' baby names from celebrity parents

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. North West

Everyone initially thought it was a joke when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West named their daughter the direction-inspired name North West. As it turns out, both Pharrell and Vogue's Anna Wintour, encouraged the name.

"It was a rumor in the press and we'd never really considered it seriously, at all, but Kanye and I were having lunch right over there at that table about a year ago and Pharrell [Williams] came over to us and said 'Oh, my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.' I said 'No we're not, that's just a rumor,'" she told GQ.

"Then a little while later Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us 'North is a genius name.' Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck."

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. Rocket Ayer

Producer, singer and The Voice judge Pharrell Williams and his wife gave their son the unusual name of Rocket Ayer -- and he explained to Oprah the deep meaning behind the name.

"In the same way that the Indians name their children like behind a force or an animal or an element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up. Meant to ascend. And metaphorically, it was because of, you know, Stevie Wonder’s Rocket Love, Elton John’s Rocket Man and Herbie Hancock’s Rocket. All of my favorite musicians. And [Rocket's] middle name is not Man. It’s Ayer after Roy Ayers.”

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.
