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.

10. Ocean, Sonnet and True

There is something poetic about Forest Whitaker's kids names: Ocean, Sonnet and True ...

9. Shiloh Nouvel

Parents of six, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have a cache of unusual names, but their biological daughter Shiloh's name takes the cake in the clan (siblings include Maddox, Zahara, Pax, Knox and Vivienne). Pictured is Shiloh with Papa Pitt.

8. Seven Sirius, Puma Sabti and Mars Merkaba

Naming a baby really is serious business. When Andre Benjamin and Erykah Badu named their son, they took that to heart with Seven Sirius (say it outloud). Badu has since given birth to two more kids, Puma (hello, sneakers!) and Mars (the red planet?).

7. Satchel

Babies are so cute, you just want to scoop them up and keep them close. Maybe that's why Spike Lee and Tonya Lewis Lee named their child for bag that's great for carrying things: Satchel.

6. Kyd

David Duchovny and Tea Leoni spared no creativity here, naming thier son ... wait for it ... wait for it ... Kyd. Guess that makes calling the child over a cinch.

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!
