Out on the red carpet, it seems as if there is a running competition to see which celebrity can come up with the most bizarre baby names. It’s no secret that modern baby names seem to be evolving from the normal Jack and Sally to creative, original names that are decidedly unique. However, those who star on the center stage seem to be exceptionally good at coming up with some funny ones. Here are 10 celebrity kids who have been either blessed or cursed with some of the most unusual and craziest names you’ve ever heard.
Number Ten: Blanket Jackson – Son of Michael Jackson.
The story behind this weird title is that “Blanket” is supposedly the youngest of MJ’s three kids’ nickname. His first born was named Prince Michael Joseph Jackson, and his other son was deemed Prince Michael Joseph Jackson II. Needing a nickname to differentiate the two, “Blanket” caught on. They defended this nickname as it is meant to mean “to shower with love and affection.”
Number Nine: Audio Science – Son of Shannyn Sossamon.
Actress Shannyn Sossamon was determined to give her baby boy a word for a name, rather than just a name. Originally it was to be just “Science”, and call him “Si” for short (as in “Simon”). Although the world has disapproved her naming choice, Sossamon still loves the name she gave him. She believes that Audio (Science being his middle name) is a great name for a boy.
Number Eight: Tu Morrow – Daughter of Rob Morrow.
We have to admit, Tu is a rather adorable and charming name for a girl. However, actor Rob Morrow has to live with himself knowing that he created a walking pun. Also, her full name is Tu Simone Ayer Morrow. We can’t be sure if this is just a coincidence, but for those of you who don’t know Spanish, “ayer” can be translated to “yesterday”. Oh, the irony.
Number Seven: Jermajesty – Son of Jermaine Jackson.
No one can forget Jermaine Jackson of the beloved Jackson 5 family. And now, no one will forget his son upon meeting him either. With a name like Jermajesty, one simply feels as if they are in the presence of royalty.
Number Six: Sage Moonblood – Son of Sylvester Stallone.
We imagine it would be hard to go through life with a name like Sage Moonblood. If anyone could pull it off though, it would be Stallone’s son. While Sage is a rather creative and charming name, the addition of “Moonblood” seems just a bit crazy. It almost sounds like a character from a werewolf movie, and he certainly has grown to fit the part.
Number Five: Pilot Inspektor – Son of Jason Lee.
This one we have no excuse for; “Pilot Inspektor” is just way too out there. In retrospect though, actor Jason Lee is a pretty “out there” kind of fellow. Turns out, Lee’s wife came up with the name from a song by Granddaddy called “The Sophtware Slump,” for which the opening line is “He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s the Pilot.” Truly inspirational, right?
Number Four: Moxie Crimefighter – Daughter of Penn Jillette.
With a father like Penn Jillette, the kids’ names were bound to be creative. “Moxie Crimefighter” actually has quite the endearing ring to it, and seems like a mild choice considering what we might expect from this comedian. With “crimefighter” in her name, I’m sure we can expect great things from this young starlet.
Numbers Three and Two: Moon Unit and Diva Thin Muffin – Daughters of Frank Zappa.
Frank Zappa was anything but ordinary in all aspects of his life, and it looks like that goes for his family as well. We would expect nothing less ridiculous than for Zappa to come up with bizarre names such as Moon Unit and Diva Thin Muffin for his two beautiful girls.
Number One: North West – Daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.
Considering the names listed above, surely they can’t be getting any worse, right? Wrong. In 2013, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West debuted their sweet baby girl, North West. While they planned to call her “Nori” for short, it simply doesn’t make up for the fact that her name is the worst pun they could’ve chosen.
