Worst celebrity baby names


I realise that naming a baby can be difficult. You need to consider how the name is pronounced, what the meaning of the name is and whether or not it will be made fun of when your child goes to school. It seems that celebrities have their own sets of rules when it comes to naming kids though. Who really knows why they make the decisions they do?

Why THAT name?

I took to Facebook and asked our fans why they think celebs give their children really strange names. Here are their thoughts, do you agree?
  • They love attention and the more weirs the name, the more attention they get. - Georginah
  • Because they are always high on drugs, can't even give a child a name. - Nonela
  • While I sympathise with people wanting to be individuals, I always feel sorry for the kids who have to live with unusual names. Parents should really think about the way other kids may treat their kids because of their name. - Kath
  • Because why fit in when you can stand out? Their kids, their choice. Who are we to judge what they name their kids? - Sharlene
