Worst celebrity baby names of 2011

KISS singer Paul Stanley makes the worst celebrity baby name list for naming his daughter a name that is not weird, but too ordinary! He named his daughter Emily, which is pretty, but it is way too popular and ordinary for a rock star, don’t you think? We were also disappointed when one of our favorite actresses, Natalie Portman, named her son Aleph. And we still aren’t quite sure what Alicia Silverstone was thinking by naming her son Bear Blu. Who else made the list? Check it out below.

  • Cree: Tia Mowry
  • Spike: Mike Myers
  • Xander: January Jones
  • Agnes Lark: Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany
  • Hattie: Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott
  • Cleo: Friends star David Schwimmer
  • Genesis: Viola Davis
  • Zuzu: Top Chef‘s daughter Tania Peterson
  • London: Dr Phil’s grandson, Jay McGraw’s son
  • Kroy Jagger: Real Housewives of Atanta‘s Kim Zolciak
