It is no secret that celebrity babies create buzz no matter what they do. When you’re born into what is basically a modern-day royal family, you’re going to be a big deal. The problem is that when celebrities are in the public eye, everyone is always anticipating what their new baby will be named, so that they can talk about it for years to come. However, it is taken to a new level when celebrities, in an attempt to be unique, give their children names that are equivalent to “potato” and think that they will become prodigies because their names are so “different”. Here are some of the most bizarre celebrity baby names that we can’t get over, no matter how cute the kids actually are.


Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, we give you creativity level zero – because who names their daughter after a fruit?


Most people honestly thought that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were seriously pranking the public with this name. It sure sounds like a joke. We feel for you, Northy, we do.


You’re probably thinking, “What’s wrong with James? That’s a perfectly normal name.” Yes, sure it may be, but Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds named their daughter, James. But then again, what would you expect from a girl named Blake? We imagine that it seems perfectly normal to her.

Blue Ivy

Beyoncé and Jay Z are basically winners at life, but we can’t say the same for their child naming skills, even if they did have a good reason for naming their baby girl Blue Ivy.


So, apparently Pharrell and his wife had some sort of symbolic idea when coming up with this, naming their son after a man-made machine that “ascends”. But, we still think they could have just named him something normal and painted a rocket on his bedroom wall, instead.


Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have no business naming a baby girl for sure.


No, that’s not a typo. Although Eva Mendes and Ryan Gosling’s daughter will spend the rest of her life explaining to others that there is no “n” missing from her name.


Reese Witherspoon is possibly a little bit too in touch with her southern roots.


We detect that Mark Ruffalo was trying to inspire some positive personality qualities in his son by naming him Keen. His mother’s name is Sunrise, though, so we can’t be too shocked.


Was Jason Bateman on a pancake sugar high when he chose this name? We think so, too.

From naming their babies after places, fruits, objects, colours – you name it – there is nothing that shocks us with celebrity baby names anymore; the bizarre bar has been set pretty high. So, let’s agree that all babies are beautiful, but agree to disagree on the names.
