Strange baby names of the super-famous
Parents are always looking for cool, creative baby names, but some celebrities take it to a whole new level of crazy. See what 12 superstar families named their bundles of joy.
Gwen Stefani & Gavin Rossdale
From her style to her sons, Gwen Stefani has never backed down on what she believes in. When it came to naming her three kids, Stefani didn't let anyone talk her out of these unique – and totally rockin' – monikers: Kingston James McGregor, Zuma Nesta Rock, and Apollo Bowie Flynn.
Kim Kardashian & Kanye West
One thing's for sure: North West will never get her directions mixed up. The little human GPS system made her debut in 2013, and her name instantly confused fans the world over.
Busy Philipps & Marc Silverstein
Cougar Town's Busy Philipps defended the names of her two daughters, Cricket and Birdie. On the Today show, she explained: "When my husband and I started to have our babies, we decided that if we wanted to call our kids something, we would just name them that thing that we wanted to call them."
Former The Girls Next Door star Holly Madison felt the rainbow connection with her little princess, Rainbow Aurora. The former Playmate has never hidden her love for all things Disney, so maybe Aurora is an homage to the movie classic Sleeping Beauty.
The legendary rocker (1940-1993) isn't remembered just for his music, but also for being that guy who gave his kids far-out names like Moon Unit, Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen, and Dweezil.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin
They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and Gwyneth Paltrow and ex-husband Chris Martin have taken this advice to heart. They get their fill every day with their daughter, Apple. The duo followed up with a son a few years later, named Moses.
Jason Lee & Beth Riesgraf
Jason Lee might get the weirdest baby name award for naming his first son Pilot Inspektor after the song "He's Simple, He's Dumb, He's the Pilot," by indie band Grandaddy. Half-sister Casper and half-brother Sonny soon followed.
Jamie Oliver & Juliette Norton
British chef Jamie Oliver brings his farm-fresh approach to naming his kids. Siblings Petal Blossom, Poppy Honey Rosie, Daisy Boo Pamela, and, and baby brother Buddy Bear Maurice round out the family.
Even though Geri Halliwell doesn't go by Ginger Spice anymore, she still has a flair for theatrics. She chose the name Bluebell Madonna for her only daughter, born in 2006.
It probably should come as no surprise the Rambo star would name his firstborn son Sage Moonblood (who died, sadly, 2012). Stallone stuck with alliteration, naming Sage's brother Seargeoh and his sisters Sophia, Sistine, and Scarlet. (The three girls all have the middle name Rose.)
The Australian supermodel showed some love for the first letter of her home country when naming her two sons. Arpad, named after his father, goes by Flynn. Aurelius goes by Cy.
Fergie & Josh Duhamel
The pop star and Hollywood heartthrob gave their only son a name that reflects his parents' glamorous, high-profile personalities. Enter Axl Jack, a little dude with a larger-than-life name.
