The best & worst celeb baby names

So many celebrities gave birth in 2009 - it was like a mini baby boom! What were the best and worst celebrity baby names of the year? Check out our list of the most unique, cute, cool and just plain weird celebrity names of the year.

The worst celebrity baby names of 2009

1) Lou Sulola Samuel

Call this a case of ambiguous naming. We're all for unisex baby names, but this one is just too hard to decipher. Lou is a baby girl born in October to Heidi Klum and Seal. She is their third child.

2) Stella Luna

Dear Ellen Pompeo, We love your work on Grey's Anatomy. However, you need to do more character research before naming your kids. Stellaluna is the name of a kid's book and a line of shoes. Why name your daughter that? This baby girl was born to Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery on September 15.

3) Sparrow James Midnight

The word 'Sparrow' conjures two images: a tiny bird and wobbly Johnny Depp character. It doesn't scream baby boy at all though. Born September 9, we think perhaps Nicole Richie and Joel Madden got a little too creative with their second child's name.

4) Kenzo Lee Hounsou

What? Was Gonzo just too much? We aren't sure if this name is a nod to clowns or the Muppets, but either way, it's a little weird. This little boy arrived in May. His parents? Kimora Lee Simmons and actor Djimon Hounsou.

5) Otis Tobias

The short-name then longer-name combination could make this baby boy's name a winner. However, the repeating 's' at the end of both names makes this one just not flow well. This baby boy was born this year to Spiderman star Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Meyer.

6) Mars Merkaba

There are no words for this one. But then, mom Erykah Badu isn't known for her common name choices. Her other kids are named Seven and Puma. 'Nuff said.

7) Satyana Marie

We hope that kids don't take this baby girl's name to heart (ahem, Sat-on-ya?). She was born to American Pie and Buffy's Alyson Hannigan and husband Alexis Denisof in March.

9) Jesse Jameson and Journey Jette

What were Jenna Jameson and Tito Ortiz, a mixed martial artist, thinking when they named their twins earlier this year? Seems like they had outlaws and old-school rockers on the brain with these two names.
