Heeeeyy Mummies and Daddies
Have you seen or heard some of the unusual baby names our celebrities have concocted? Some have beautiful reasons but many go unexplained and have left us scratching our heads.
People in today’s age just LOVE having children with unusual and uncommon names. We want to be unique, we want our child to be unqiue too and have their name being the only one called on their morning register.
Aurelius Cy Andrea Busson
His Parents: Elle Macpherson and Arpad Busson
Their Reason: No reason was given.
Bronx Mowgli Wentz
His Parents: Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz
Their Reason: Mowgli came from the The Jungle Book which is clear. It’s apparent that they both bonded and fell in love with. Bronx was a name they had just thought up after throwing other names around.
Sunday Rose Urban
Her Parents: Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
Their Reason: Sunday’s can be the loneliest day in the week for some people. But Nicole and Keith wanted to change that, so now Sunday is their favourite because it reminds them of their daughter. How sweet is that?!
His Parents: Jermaine Jackson and Alejandra Oaziaza
Their Reason: With his dad being called Jermaine, all his brothers also having names starting with “J” and as a descendent of a royal family – That is where the name came from. I wonder if Bethmajesty works too? Nah, gutted.
Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence
Her Parents: Paula Yates and Michael Hutchence
Their Reason: The word “Hiranni” is the Polynesian meaning for “Princess of the beautiful sky”. The rest wasn’t ever explained but it’s gorgeous all the same. Definitely unique by my standards.
Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee
His Parents: Jason Lee and Beth Riesgraf
Their Reason: Well, this unusual name has stemmed from the pair listening to song called ‘He’s Simple, He’s Dumb, He’s The Pilot’ by Grandaddy. Yep, this very different.
Audio Science Clayton
His Parents: Shannyn Sossamon and Dallas Clayton
Their Reason: After Dallas searched the dictionary four times, they decided on the name Science so they could shorten it to Sci.
Locklyn Kyla Vaughn
Her Parents: Vince Vaughn and Kyla Webber
Their Reason: No particular reason was given but Locklyn shares the same name as her Mum, Kyla.
Ignatius Martin Upton
His Parents: Cate Blanchett and Martin Upton.
Their Reason: No reason as to actually why but his two brothers have also been given uncommon names, Dashiell and Roman.
Phinnaeus Walter Moder
His Parents: Julia Roberts and Daniel Moder
Their Reason: No reason given, but Phinneaus is nicknamed “Finn” and his twin sister is called Hazel Patricia. Pretty cute huh?
Moroccan Scott Cannon and Monroe Cannon
Their Parents: Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon
Their Reason: It’s been revealed that Monroe was named after Mariah’s favourite singing idol and Moroccan was named after the couple’s NY apartment as it’s decorated in a Moroccan style. It is also where he proposed.
Bingham ‘Bing’ Hawn Bellamy
His Parents: Kate Hudson and Matt Bellamy
Their Reason: Matt, tweeted, ‘For those wondering, Bingham is my mum’s maiden name and Bing Russell was Kurt’s dad. Family connections all round!’. Kate gave the middle name to honour her mum, Goldie Hawn.
His Parents: Evangeline Lilly and Norman Kali
Their Reason: In Hawaiian, the word Kahekili means ‘thunder’. I think it’s pretty cute!
Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson
Her Parents: Uma Thurman and Arpad Busson
Their Reason: They haven’t specifically explained the history behind the names but Uma’s rep announced “Each name has a special reason and meaning to her mother and father.” But don’t worry, her name to friends and family is Luna.
Cricket Pearl Silverstein
Her Parents: Busy Philipps and Marc Silverstein
Their Reason: No reason behind the choice in name, but I actually really like it.
