Here’s a throwback to some of the weirdest celebrity baby names in the last 20 years

Remember when the world lost its collective mind because Gwenyth Paltrow named her baby Apple? And then they made a big to-do about her “conscious uncoupling” from Chris Martin? She confirmed her status as the ultimate weird-rich girl back then. Now, Apple is pretty tame compared to some celebrity baby monikers. Elon Musk and Grimes just came up with such a high-concept baby name it’s unpronounceable. X Æ A-12, the baby, is doomed to a lifetime of people trying to remember “Ex Ash A-Twelve.”

Our theory about why celebrity names are so weird is that they’re surrounded by overly supporting and accepting people. To some degree, when you’re rich and famous, people just agree to whatever ideas and demands wander through your mind.

Here’s a throwback to some of the weirdest celebrity names in the last 20 years:

DIVA THIN MUFFIN PIGEEN

Joining siblings Ahmet, Moon Unit, and Dweezil, Diva Thin Muffin is the youngest child of Frank and Gail Zappa. The legend goes to the actor/artist/comedian earned the name Diva because of how loud she was. Nothing on Thin Muffin, though.

PILOT INSPEKTOR LEE

The child of the actors Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf got the name Pilot after a song. Pilot doesn’t bug me so much, but Inspektor with a ‘k’? What’s going on there.

BEAR

Both Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone named their babies Bear. Winslet’s reasoning isn’t so crazy–she had a childhood friend named Bear, who she loved. The kid’s middle name is Blaze because she and her husband met in a house fire and “wanted something of the fire.” Coming out of it alive wasn’t enough?

EXTON DOWNEY

Who knew Robert Downey Jr. even had a kid? Turns out he has three with his wife of 17 years, Susan, and all their names are creative. Exton is the oldest, joined later by Indio Falconer and Avri Roel.

BINGHAM HUDSON

Too close to “gingham.” Nope.

 

ROCKET, RACER, REBEL, AND ROGUE

If it weren’t for the Kardashians, we’d all give a collective eye-roll to theme names for kids. And Rocket Power was such a good cartoon show that Robert Rodriguez and Elizabeth Avellan kind of get a pass for this bouquet of weird ‘R’ names.

KAL-EL COPPOLA CAGE

Must be nice to know you’re too powerful in Hollywood for your kid ever to get bullied.

GRAVITY

If your name is “Lucky Blue,” what chance do you have of naming your child John?
