These weird celebrity baby names will make you cringe

No one wants their kid to have the same name as everyone in the classroom, but some celebrities take it way too far.  Sometimes only one of the children draws the shorter stick, but more often than not all siblings have to endure growing up with names like Seven or Pilot Inspektor.

From cities to fruits and animals, celebrities’ creativity has no limit when it comes to choosing a name for their child. Some A-listers have been doing it way before it was considered the cool thing to do. 

Grimes and Elon Musk

After welcoming son X Æ A-12, Grimes and Elon Musk announced that they had a baby girl named Exa Dark Sideræl in December 2021. 

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson

Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s little girl is named True. Fans have pointed out the irony of the situation, considering her former NBA beau was caught cheating a few days before Khloé gave birth.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Bey and Jay welcomed their twin babies back in June 2017. The Sun explained that they named their baby girl Rumi “after a Persian poet, mystic and Islamic scholar born over 800 years ago,” but their son’s name was the one that drew the most attention. Jay-Z’s explanation for the name Sir was, “He carries himself like that. He just came out, like, Sir.”

It’s not the first time the billionaire couple went for an odd name. Their oldest daughter is named Blue Ivy.

Aaron Paul and Lauren Paul

‘Breaking Bad’ star Aaron Paul and his wife Lauren welcomed a baby girl named Story Annabelle, this back in 2018.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow and the Coldplay lead singer separated a while ago, but not before they managed to agree on naming their daughter Apple. Their son’s name is not as odd, but it’s certainly not common: Moses.

Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein

What are the odds that two people who enjoy calling people by animal names will meet? Well, that’s what happened with actress Busy Philipps and husband director Marc Silverstein. They named their eldest daughter Birdie, which is sort of cute.

But Cricket? Surely there was a nicer animal to name their youngest after.

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship was one of the most tumultuous in Kardashian family history. One might say that it’s been the exact opposite of their child’s name—Dream.

Ciara and Future

The former couple must have experienced immense last-minute, child-naming pressure because they couldn’t think of a name other than Future.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

The Kim and Kanye baby name saga started when they decided to name their first child North West, who was followed by Saint West. When we thought it couldn’t get any weirder, the couple welcomed their third child, Chicago West, and their fourth, Psalm West.

Zoe Saldana and Marco Perego

The pair’s youngest son is named Zen, which is actually an antonym for “newborn child.” Their other kids don’t have common names either: Cy and Bowie.
