Weird Names Celebrities Chose for Their Children


Alanis Morissette and her husband, who apparently prefers to be called Souleye, just announced that they’re having another baby. The baby will no doubt join older siblings Ever Imre and Onyx Solace in having a wacky New-Age name.

Here are 9 more celebrities who gave their kids unusual names.


Good ol’ Niccola Coppola isn’t known for being a down-to-earth guy. Maybe that’s why he and his ex-wife, Alice Kim, gave their son an out-of-this-world name. Kal-El is named after Superman’s birth name on Krypton.

Pilot Inspektor

No list of unusual celebrity baby names would be complete without Pilot Inspektor Lee. Jason Lee and ex-partner Beth Riesgraf named their son after a rock song he liked. Makes total sense.

Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue, and Rhiannon

The Spy Kids director and his ex-wife, Elizabeth Avellan, had five children: Rocket, Racer, Rebel, Rogue, and Rhiannon. That makes the Kardashians seem almost normal, doesn’t it?

North, Saint, and Chicago

Speaking of the Kardashians, I guess we can be glad that Kim and Kanye didn’t give their kids “K” names. But “Chicago West” sounds like a hospital, and “North West” is literally just a direction on the compass. “Saint West” is pretty cool, though.

Fifi, Peaches, and Pixie

Irish rock musician and philanthropist and his long-time partner Paula Yates gave their girls some very strange names. First, there was Fifi Trixibelle. Then the late Peaches Honeyblossom. Their youngest daughter is named Little Pixie.

Yates left Geldof for INXS singer Michael Hutchence, and the pair had a daughter named Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily.

Moxie Crimefighter

Magician and comedian Penn Jillette named his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. Either she thinks that awesome, or she curses her parents every time she has to fill out official paperwork.

Dweezil, Moon Unit, and Diva

The undisputed king of unusual baby names is the late Frank Zappa. His kids include Dweezil, Moon Unit, and Diva Thin Muffin. Why not? He also has a son named Ahmet, who must feel a little left out.

Sparrow James Midnight

Nicole Richie and her husband, Joel Madden, named their little bundle of joy Sparrow James Midnight. Did anyone tell them that only one of those is a real name?

Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo, Buddy Bear, and Petal Blossom

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and his wife, Juliette Norton, bestowed sickeningly sweet names on their children. The kids sound like characters in a Beatrix Potter story.
