Baby names only celebrities could get away with

26. Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart

As hard as this little guy's name is to decipher, no, we are not making this up. Rapper Chief Keef, who also goes by the names Keith Cozart and "Sosa," opted to name his newborn son this mouthful — Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart — to promote his album release in September 2015. We are going to look on the bright side with this one and celebrate the fact that young Sno has plenty of nicknames to choose from.

25. Elsie Otter

Zooey Deschanel is nothing if not quirky, and we wouldn't expect anything else from her choice in a baby name. Deschanel made the big name drop three months after giving birth to her daughter: She and her producer husband, Jacob Pechenik, named her Elsie Otter. Say the name a few times fast, and you might catch that it's a play on "sea otter," which Deschanel confirmed was the true inspiration for her daughter's offbeat name.

24. Apollo Bowie Flynn

Before David Bowie's death in 2016, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale got a jump on paying homage to the rock legend, naming their third son Apollo Bowie Flynn in 2014. However, the tribute may have been entirely accidental, as Rossdale tweeted that Bowie and Flynn were actually the couple's mothers' maiden names. Chalk that one up to a clever coincidence.

23. Apple

It's the forbidden fruit; it'll keep the doctor away; and it's the epitome of America — or at least its pies are. 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 (so much for that "totally unique" angle).

In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Paltrow said she liked how it sounded "wholesome" and "clean."

22. Rocket, Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo & Petal Blossom Rainbow

Leave it to a renowned chef to bring plant-based names to the table when naming his children. Jamie Oliver and his wife, Jools, named their son River Rocket (rocket is the common British word for arugula) and their daughters PoppyDaisy and Petal. In fact, all of those plants are edible or have edible parts — if you count poppy seeds. Maybe the kids will grow up to be star chefs too?
