When it comes to the names that are chosen by celebrities for their children, there’s little surprise that the names of these new mini celebrities will enter the spotlight almost the second they arrive into the world.

2012 was a year that saw plenty of new mini celebs welcomed into the world, from local Aussie musician Guy Sebastian to global superstars like Uma Thurman. Just like the variety that exists in the personalities of celebs worldwide, the same variety and unique attitudes make their way into the baby names they choose, too.

The not-so-hot celebrity baby names of 2012

  • Sabbath Page Wielandt was welcomed into the world by Zakk Wylde and wife Barbaranne. No guessing where the inspiration came from for this little one’s name.
  • West was welcomed by country singer Randy Houser and his wife Jessa. Jessa reportedly tweeted, “We have the most beautiful son in the world! Our very own little Wild Wild West.”
  • Astala Dylan Willow Cohen-Geldof stands out if nothing else. These were the names chosen by Peaches Geldof and Thomas Cohen for their new son.
  • Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence is a name that outdoes any other. Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson were definitely adventurous with this one.
  • Ever was the name chosen by Aussie actress Toni Pearen. She’s not alone in using this name in the celebrity world, but it definitely stands out as unique.
  • Blue Ivy, a quirky play on an associated male colour for their daughter, was the choice for Beyonce and Jay-Z
