The maddest celebrity baby names to come out of La La Land


weird celebrity baby names

Nowadays we’re more shocked when a celeb gives their child a common name…

Back in 2004, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin made headlines around the world when they named their daughter Apple.

But they weren’t the first celebrity couple to give their kid an out-of-the-ordinary name, and they definitely weren’t the last. Actually, in the wider world of celebrity baby names, Apple is fairly tame.

We’re not quite sure what it is with celebrities and giving their kids, well, weird names. Is it a PR stunt thing? Is it an attempt to pre-brand them for future stardom?

Or are ordinary names the “weird names” of celebrity childhood? We can’t exactly picture Mary and John amongst a class of Maddoxes and Stormis.

Whatever the reason, the following list offers some cute, some strange celebrity baby names that caught the world’s attention. Have a gawk at which celebs named their baby like so.
