Top Ten Unusual Celebrity Baby Names

I like unique names, but some are a bit over the top. I know mine and my daughter’s names are unique, but I don’t think they are unusual. Well, at least I’ve never seen anyone raise their eyebrows or give me a funny look about them. We have joked about changing her middle name officially to her nickname “Boo.”  (Key word being joked!)  Any way, I hope you find this list interesting!

Top 10 Unusual Celebrity Baby Names

Celebrate The Emmy Award® Nominated Raising Hope, Season 1  from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment out as of September 20th.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment brings us the 1st Season on DVD packed with exclusive
featurettes, deleted and extended scenes, a gag reel, commentaries and the un-aired pilot never shown
on television. Be on the look out for my review next week!

Princess Beyonce is a pretty great name, but we can see why the family changed her name to Hope. We
love unusual and fantastical names…from Apple to Pilot Inspektor, here are our top 10 unusual celebrity
baby names complete with origin, background and meanings!

Moon Unit
With siblings, Dweezil, Ahmet and Diva, you know father Frank Zappa had out-of-this-world expectations
for his daughter. This original name means “one that orbits the moon”.

Pilot Inspektor
Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf were inspired by the Grandaddy single, “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The
Pilot” enough to name their song after the tune.

Sage Moonblood
Sylvester Stallone gave his son this name that alludes to and mystical forces and wisdom, and must have
fueled Sage’s creative side as he is an actor, producer, writer and director.

Fifi Trixibelle
Paula Yates and Bob Geldof named their daughter after Bob’s aunt Fifi and Paula wanted a “belle” in the
family. Her siblings, Little Pixie, Peaches Honeyblossom and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily all enjoy just as
exciting given names.

Moxie CrimeFighter
Comedian Penn Jillette named his daughter after the beverage Moxie, and CrimeFighter is derived from a line
from one of his books. The legacy will live on!

Apple Gweyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin decided to name their daughter after a fruit because of the inherent sweetness, cleanliness and the lovely images the word conjures up in their minds. Jazz Domino Daughter of The Clash front man, Joe Strummer, Jazz is a proud feminist who loves crafting and was recently featured in Bust Magazine! Petal Blossom Rainbow Jamie Oliver and Jools kept the trend going after naming their first two daughters Poppy Honey and Daisy Boo. Petal fits in with the floral themes; Blossom is “fresh”, while Rainbow is truly a “symbol of hope”. Jermajesty An heir to the Jackson kingdom, Jermaine’s youngest son will certainly be held in illustrious pop culture regard.

Those poor, poor kids. Did the parents think about what happens when their children grow up and turn into adults that want respect and to be taken seriously? They are already going to be in the public eye for their famous parents.
