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.

20. Aurelius

Back in the time of the Romans, Aurelii was the name of an elite group of families. Aurelius was the male version of the name, and it's also the name of the youngest son of Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson and Arpad Busson (who's now engaged to Uma Thurman).

19. Blue Angel

Some people name their children after family members, others name them for Biblical figures. But U2's The Edge and Aislinn O'Sullivan? They went for Blue Angel. Sounds like a clothing line, doesn't it?

18. Bluebell Madonna

Back in the late 90s, the Spice Girls were known for their shrinking hemlines and get-up-and-move music. These days though, many of the Spice Girls have taken on a new role: mom.

Geri Halliwell ("Ginger Spice") is no exception ... and her daughter's name pays homage to both music and beautiful flowers: Bluebell Madonna. The British mother-daughter duo are pictured at right.

17. Fifi TrixibellE, Peaches and Pixie

File this one under "What were they thinking??". Bob Geldof and Paula Yates named their firstborn daughter Fifi Trixibelle. (Can't help but wonder if a boy would have been Fido.)

Meanwhile, their other daughters fared no better with Peaches Honeyblossom and Pixie. The late Paula Yates went on to have one more daughter, this one with (also late) INXS lead singer Michael Hutchence. The child is known as Tiger, which is a whole lot simpler to remember than her given name: Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

16. Destry

Somewhere between destiny and destroy is Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw's daughter Destry.

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!
