Eissa – Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson gave birth to her first child at the beginning of 2017, at the age of 50 years old. She had a baby boy with husband, Wissam Al Mana, however the pair recently split after 4 years of marriage. So what exactly does the name “Eissa” mean? Eissa means “Yahweh is salvation”, Yahweh meaning “God” in Hebrew.
Ace Knute – Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson can do no wrong in our books, whether it was her questionable fashion choices back in the late 90’s, or confusing tuna for chicken. However, we’re honestly a little baffled by her choice of the name Ace Knute her little boy. Considering he’s only three years old, he’s going to have to wait a whole 15 years until he can legally change his name himself. If that’s what he wants of course.
Henry Wilberforce – Jessica and Ben Duggar-Seewald
Jessa and Ben Duggar-Seewald welcomed their second child on February 6, 2017, and let’s just say the “Force” is definitely with the newest member of the reality TV clan. After finally spilling the name of their little bundle of joy: Henry Wilberforce, the couple revealed that the middle name was borrowed from a politician who helped end the slave trade. In an interview shortly after Henry’s birth, Ben said, “We really like it. We just thought it was cute, but also there was another great man of God name Matthew Henry who lived before Wilberforce and he wrote a lot of great commentaries.”
Audio Science – Shannyn Sossamon
The actress may have only dated children’s book author and illustrator Dallas Clayton from 2002 to 2004, but that was enough time to bring a child into the world. While we’re not sure how the couple came to the name Audio Science, it may be possible that they just chose it out of a hat. Sossamon who wasn’t exactly prepared for the whole motherhood thing said in an interview, “I wasn’t ready to be a mom. But if you have any desire to be a better person, having a baby kicks it right into gear. Now I’m a better actress and a better mother”.
Ode Mountain – Jena Malone
We can’t exactly say we’re surprised after learning what the Hunger Games star Jena Malone named her child. Malone welcomed her son Ode Mountain DeLorenzo Malone with her boyfriend, Ethan DeLorenzo, in 2016. While Malone hasn’t revealed the inspiration for her son’s name yet, we think it makes a great “ode” to new parenting. Unfortunately, the couple has yet to share any grade A selfies of the tot to social media, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that they start posting soon.
Rocket Zot – Sam Worthington
Avatar star Sam Worthington’s baby name choice for his first child with his model wife Lara Bingle Worthington came completely out of left field. In 2015, the couple welcomed their baby boy named Rocket Zot. You have to admit it’s got a ring to it.. if you’re into rockets that is. The inspo for Rocket was that it’s just a fun first name the couple chose at random, and Zot was the nickname of Bingle Worthington’s late father. Now it all makes sense.
Heiress Harris – T.I.
It only fits that the over the top rapper would pick out a name for his baby girl just as distinguished. Clifford Joseph Harris Jr and his wife Tameka “Tiny” Cottle picked out the name heiress before their daughter was born making her full name Heiress Harris, a real tongue twister if we’ve ever seen one! Fortunately, this little bundle of joy is the daughter of the extremely successful rapper T.I., so she can probably handle any of the jokes that may be thrown her way.
Phyllon Gorr – Doutzen Kroes
When you’re a supermodel as stunningly beautiful as Doutzen Kroes then giving your child a slightly offbeat name can easily be overlooked and forgiven. Kroes and her husband, DJ Sunnery James, decided to name their first son Phyllon Gorr, which honestly sounds a little bit more like a member of the Star Trek or Star Wars cast rather than a little boy on Earth just trying to live a normal life. Now that he’s six years old let’s all hope Phyllon Gorr’s unique doesn’t give him too much trouble on the playground.
Jagger Snow – Ashlee Simpson
Another Simpson sister who has welcomed children into the world is Ashlee Simpson. The youngest Simpson sister gave birth to her first daughter on July 30, 2015, with her current hubby Evan Ross, the son of Diana Ross. The couple welcomed their daughter with the gift of a unique name that was a nod to her musical roots, Jagger Snow. With a hint of hardcore rocker and a dash of Disney princess vibes, this name may influence the 1-year-old to become one of the most epic performers of all time.
Sno FilmOn Dot Com Cozart – Chief Keef
This is one celebrity baby name story that is just way to good to have made up. Out of all the names in the world Rapper Chief Keef, could have named his son, he opted to name his newborn baby FilmOn Dot Com Cozart to promote his album release in September of 2015. The name of his child is literally the address of his record label’s website. We are going to try to look on the bright side with this one and revel in the fact that Sno will have a plethora of nicknames to choose from.
Apollo Bowie Flynn – Gwen Stefani
Third time really is a charm. Way before David Bowie’s unfortunate passing in 2016, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale got a head start on paying homage to the pop and rock icon, naming their third son Apollo Bowie Flynn when he was born in 2014. However, it turns out that the tribute to Bowie was completely accidental, as Rossdale revealed via Twitter that Bowie and Flynn were actually the cute couple’s mothers’ maiden names. I guess we can just chalk that one up to a clever coincidence.
Elsie Otter – Zooey Deschanel
We wouldn’t expect anything less of the quirky 500 Days Of Summer and New Girl actress Zooey Deschanel then to give her baby an equally eccentric name. Deschanel made the big name drop three long months after giving birth to her daughter, who she named Elsie Otter, with her producer husband, Jacob Pechenik. We’re not sure if she thought the world wouldn’t catch on to the whole sea otter thing or this tricky play on words, but they did. Deschanel confirmed that “sea otter,” was the real inspiration for her daughter’s offbeat name.
Aurelius Cy – Elle Macpherson
Australian supermodel Elle Macpherson gave birth to her second child on February 4, 2003, with her ex-husband Arpad Busson and the two chose a less conventional name for their precious son – Aurelius Cy Andrea Busson. Way back in the time of the Romans, Aurelii was the name of an elite group of families and Aurelius was the male version of the name. This isn’t the first time Macpherson and her husband decided to give their children unusual names. The couple gave their first son the name Arpad Flynn Alexander Busson, who is now 19 years old.
Blue Angel – The Edge
Best known by his stage name The Edge, David Howell Evans is an English-born Irish songwriter and musician and known as the lead keyboardist, guitarist, and backup vocalist of the famous rock band U2. While some people name their children after family members; others name them after Biblical figures, but Evans and his wife had a different idea. The couple decided to name their baby Blue Angel, which actually works as the rock n roll heiress has angelic baby blue eyes.
Rocket Ayer – Pharrell Williams
When your father is Pharrell Wiliams, one of best producers in the world and the coolest man ever, then you can’t just be given any average name. This is probably why Pharrell and his wife Helen Lasichanh named their son Rocket Ayer. Williams opened up to Oprah and explained the deeper meaning behind the name. Williams said “In the same way that the Indians name their children, like, behind a force or an animal or an element, we named him after a man-made machine that was meant to go up. Meant to ascend. And metaphorically, it was because of, you know, Stevie Wonder’s ‘Rocket Love,’ Elton John’s ‘Rocket Man’ and Herbie Hancock’s ‘Rocket.’ All of my favorite musicians. And [Rocket’s] middle name is not Man. It’s Ayer, after Roy Ayers.” Well, that explains it!
Sage Moonblood and Seargeoh – Sylvester Stallone
Because one odd name wasn’t enough, Stallone had to balance it out, and when you hear the names of these boys, you can’t help but wonder, why Sage Moonblood? What does that even mean? But then we look past it only to see Seargeoh and picture dad Sylvester Stallone pronouncing it. Sylvester Stallone and his first wife Sasha Czack had their first son Sage Moonblood in 1976, and he tragically died at age 36 in 2012 after a heart attack caused by Atherosclerotic coronary artery disease. Their son Seargeoh, who remains out of the spotlight, is also Autistic.
Fifi Trixibelle – Bob Geldfof and Paula Yates
We think it’s safe to file this one under, “What the heck were they thinking?!” Bob Geldof and Paula Yates decided to name their firstborn daughter Fifi Trixibelle. We can’t help but wonder if she had been a boy would they have named him Fido? Meanwhile, their two other daughters had no better fate with the names Peaches Honeyblossom and Pixie. The late Paula Yates had one more daughter, with INXS singer Michael Hutchence named Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily. This just proves that it was more than like Yates who was behind the bizarre names.
Zola Ivy – Eddie Murphy
Parents Eddie Murphy and Nicole Mitchell welcomed a baby girl into the world on December 24, of 1999 and they gave their daughter the rather unexpected name Zola Ivy. Surprisingly, the combination of two names makes the now 19-year-old’s name flow very nicely. This is great news for her, so she won’t have any embarrassing moments when her name is called from the attendance roster in school. Eddie Murphy’s other kids include Bella Zahra, Shane Audra, Brea and Angel Iris Murphy Brown. His last child was with former Spice Girl Melanie Brown.
Destry – Steven Spielberg
Oscar-winning film director Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw thought somewhere in between the lines of destiny and destroy when brainstorming for their daughter’s name. The Hollywood couple welcomed their daughter Destry into the world on December first of 1996. Rather than head into the family business, Destry Allyn Spielberg has instead set her sights on becoming the next top model. This up-and-coming catwalk queen just signed her first big contract with DT Model Management. Not bad for a 19-year-old!
Bronx Mowgli – Ashlee Simpson
Making our list twice is Ashlee Simpson along with her ex-husband, Pete Wentz. The couple raised a few eyebrows when they decided to name their son Bronx Mowgli. Wentz or Simpson wouldn’t share the inspiration for the unique name Bronx but they did spill that the Mowgli part came from The Jungle Book. Wentz said, “The Jungle Book was something that me and Ashlee bonded over. It’s a cool name.” Although the couple isn’t together anymore, Bronx spends most of his time with Wentz as Simpson is now remarried with another child.
Diezel Ky – Toni Braxton
An alternate spelling is one cool way to customize a name, and that’s the route Toni Braxton and Keri Lewis took when picking out the name for their son, Diezel Ky. This isn’t the first time Braxton and Lewis picked out an interesting name as Diezel’s older brother is named Denim Cole. Diezel’s special name must have brought him luck because as of last year the child, who was previously showing signs of autism, has miraculously been healed. Braxton shared in an interview that her son Diezel has been cured of autism and shows no signs of the disabling disease.
Tallulah, Scout and Rumer – Demi Moore
In 1998, the former Hollywood power couple began bringing children with unusual names into this world, and it all started with Rumer. Since the couple divorced in 2000, they have had two more children named Scout and Tallulah. Although their relationship didn’t last, the two will always be known as the couple with a few of the most interesting named children. And as far as “Rumer’s” go Demi was sure surrounded by a lot of them when she began dating actor, Ashton Kutcher, who is 16 years younger than the mature actress.
Satchel – Spike Lee
Babies are so cute you just want to scoop them up and keep them close. Maybe that’s why and Tonya Lewis Lee named their child Satchel, after the bag that’s great for carrying things around close to you. Satchel Lee was born in December of 1994 and since growing up has tried her hand at acting. If you still find yourself feeling bad for the celeb daughter for her unfortunate name don’t! She’s living it up in a $32 million townhouse in New York where she currently lives with her sibling Jackson Lee.
Kyd – David Duchovny
Naming your kid kyd is like naming your dog dog or your cat cat. You just shouldn’t do it! But we guess David Duchovny and Tea Leoni didn’t get the memo. The couple spared little to no creativity while naming their son but it seems they went a bit further when naming their daughter Madelaine “West Duchovny. While we would say that they could try again for a kid with a more normal name, the couple is unfortunately no longer together as they divorced in 2014.
Seven Sirus – Erykah Badu
Picking out a name for a baby really is serious business, and it seems like André Benjamin and Erykah Badu thought very hard before naming their son. The two musical legends decided on the name Seven Sirius, which not only sounds serious but also scientific. Since her split from André Benjamin Badu has since given birth to two more kids, Puma (like the sneakers!) and Mars (like the red planet?) both from different fathers. This must mean that Badu was the creative genius behind all of these far out baby names.
Ocean, Sonnet and True – Forest Whitaker
There is something beautiful and poetic about Keisha Nash Whitaker and Forest Whitaker’s kid’s names Ocean, Sonnet and True. They’re seriously like something out of Midsummers Night Dream! Whitaker’s son Ocean led the way as the first and oldest kid of the Whitaker clan. Being that the successful actor has a name closely tied with nature himself, it’s no wonder he wanted the same for his children. The family can often be seen on the red carpet cheering Whitaker on.
Shiloh Nouvel – Angelina Jolie
The incredibly famous and eclectic parents of six, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have a record for choosing some of the most unusual names, but their biological daughter, Shiloh, takes the cake in the clan. Shiloh, who was born in in 2006, is considered by her parents to be transgender which they have been incredibly supportive of especially in the midst of Brad and Angelina’s very public divorce. The former couple’s other children include Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Knox, and Vivienne.
Jermajesty – Jermaine Jackson
Let’s try and enter the mind of Jermaine Jackson for a brief moment, at the moment of when he was deciding what to name his fourth child. We’re sure it went something like this, “I like the letter J and both my first and last names start with it, so that’s nice. But I want something different, a majestic name which will make other kids feel inferior and guarantee that people won’t will be able to say it without laughing. The letter J.Majestic.Majesty … I got it!” While that’s not how it likely happened in real life, we can dream!
Moxie CrimeFighter and Zolten – Penn Jillette
Illusionist Penn Jillette is hands down the winner when it comes to parents who have given their children the most unusual names. There’s no words we have for these two names, but in an interview, Jillette explained his logic pretty well. Jillette said, “I think it’s pretty cruel to give a kid a name that others are going to have. I always felt sorry for the Mikes and Bobs. I love the name Moxie, I love that’s it’s a purely American word, and those are rare, and I love that it stands for old fashioned spunk and energy. EZ pushed for her middle name, “CrimeFighter” because EZ doesn’t have a middle name and thinks middle names are stupid. So, it’s just a joke.”
Kal-El – Nicolas Cage
Superman has a major fan in Nicolas Cage, who named his second son Kal-El Coppola Cage, which is the first name of the Man of Steel. Cage had the child with his current wife Alice Lee. The Hollywood star was once discussed as a potential option to play Superman in a big-screen version of the comic, chose the superhero’s Kryptonian name for his son. The boy’s full name is Kal-El Coppola Cage. And if you didn’t know, Cage is the nephew of famous director Francis Ford Coppola.
Pilot Inspektor – Jason Lee
Some things just aren’t intended to be children’s names. So in the case that you want to choose an unusual name, it’s better to balance it with a more traditional middle name. Of course, Jason Lee and his wife Beth Riesgraf didn’t get that memo when they decided to name their kid Pilot Inspektor. During an interview in 2005, the My Name Is Earl star said that he named his son after a song by the indie rock band Grandaddy’s on their 2000 album titled The Sophtware Slump.
Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Muffin – Frank Zappa
You can’t have a list of far out there celebrity baby names without mentioning the kids of Frank Zappa: Moon Unit, Dweezil and Diva Muffin. When anyone talks about the unusual names of Frank Zappa’s kids, they always get stuck on Dweezil. Or maybe Moon Unit. But Zappa’s youngest daughter whose name is Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen is really one for the books. Her name is actually a light insult, a description, food, and a misspelling of the bird pigeon. Thankfully for Diva, it’s likely that no one ever calls her by her full name, in which case Diva Zappa is quite cute.
Poppy Honey, Daisy Boo and Petal Blossom Rainbow – Jamie Oliver
Leave it to a renowned celebrity chefJamie Oliver to bring vibrant names to the table when naming his three children. Oliver and his beautiful wife, Jools, named their three daughters Poppy, Daisy, and Petal. Apparently, the floral motif is big for naming children in the Oliver clan. The British chef has recently been under fire for letting his three daughters watch the birth of his son and fourth child. Oliver, however, seems unbothered by the criticism as he’s famous as ever and making a whole lot of money.
Bluebell Madonna – Geri Halliwell
Back in the late ’90s, the Spice Girls were best known for their shrinking hemlines and get-up-and-dance music. These days, however, many of the Spice Girls have taken on a brand new role – moms! Geri Halliwell, who was known as Ginger Spice, is no exception, and she took motherhood head on by giving her daughter an ultra girly name. Halliwell’s daughter’s name, Bluebell Madonna, pays homage to both beautiful flowers and music. The British mother-daughter duo can often be seen sauntering down the streets of London, England.
Rainbow Aurora – Holly Madison
Holly Madison from the show The Girls Next Door has made an 180 transformation from her days prancing around the Play Boy mansion in a bikini. Nowadays the blonde bombshell has traded in her bunny ears for diapers and bottles as she welcomed her first child into the world with her husband, Pasquale Rotella. When the baby was born in 2013, the couple picked out a rather unusual name for the child which is Rainbow Aurora. Rainbow was named after a sporty girl Holly knew (and was jealous of) in school. Despite what many haters of the name had to say, Madison stood firmly behind her daughter’s name choice.
Tu Morrow – Rob Morrow
Best known as the actor from the TV show Numb3rs, Rob Morrow and his wife Debbon Ayer decided to name their daughter Tu, meaning her name would sound like the word tomorrow. We’re not sure if this name choice is clever or just plain wrong. Tu who was born on April 25, 2001, is now 15 years old meaning she’s old enough to know how ridiculous her name sounds. All the couple has to do now is have another child and name it yesterday.
Blanket – Michael Jackson
The beginning of Michael Jackson’s descent into Crazytown can be charted with the interesting naming of his three children. When Jackson’s first kid was produced somehow in 1997, he gave him the somewhat normal name Prince Michael Jackson. In 2002, another son came along, and this time Michael must have been completely out of ideas, because he named his son Prince Michael II but he is known to the world as Blanket because this is what Michael began calling him. Confusing we know!
Memphis Eve – Bono
A baby name like Memphis Eve coming from a man like Bono shouldn’t be much of a surprise. The Rockstar does call himself Bono, after all. This is also the same person that bought a first-class plane ticket to transport his favorite hat to a concert location. But really, “Memphis Eve?” Does that even make any sense? What’s even more confusing is that Bono and his wife Ali Hewson welcomed little Memphis on July 7, 1991, in Dublin Ireland aka no connection to Memphis!
Felicia Day – Calliope Maeve
Supernatural actress Felicia Day gave birth to her first baby and decided to give the child an equally out of this world name. The 37- year old former Buffy The Vampire Slayer star took to Twitter to announce her daughter’s arrival with an adorable photo of her baby’s tiny feet and a hospital tag wrapped around her little leg. Day captioned the cute pic,”Oh yeah Calliope Maeve has hit the world. Currently wearing a onesie that says “Bard in Training.” Yes, that’s right she named her daughter Calliope Maeve!
Megan Fox – Bodhi Green
While it’s common for parents to search for names that reflect their spiritual sides Megan Fox and her former hubby Brian Austin Green took it to the next level when it came to picking out a name for their second son. The couple decided on Bodhi, a Buddhism-inspired name that seems to be a perfect fit. Bodhi which literally means awakened is the word used in Buddhism to explain the understanding a Buddhist has of the nature of things. It can also be translated into English as ‘enlightenment.’
Drew Barrymore – Olive
We won’t hold it against you if your salty tooth kicks in after hearing the name Drew Barrymore and her husband Will Kopelman decided on for their daughter. The couple found the inspiration for their first child’s name in a baby book, not from a boring list of names. Barrymore revealed that, after reading in the book that her baby was approximately the size of an olive at three months pregnant, she instantly knew that Olive would be the name of her baby girl.
Kourtney Kardashian – Reign
During her third pregnancy, the oldest sister of the Kardashian clan, Kourtney, was sure she was carrying a girl and decided to name her Rain, this was until plans changed. When Kourtney eventually found out that she would be having a boy, she unwilling to let go of the name, simply changed the spelling so that it could be used for her soon to be son. This name seems quite fitting for the child of Lord (Scott) Disick.
Kristin Cavallari – Saylor
Low and behold, this nautical inspired name has nothing at all to do with sailors or the sea, as it was actually inspired by a furry creature. The Laguna Beach actress confessed to naming her third child after a dog she met when she was pregnant. Saylor is the daughter of Kristin and her husband Jay Cutler and little sister to her two older brothers Jaxon and Camden. Regarding the sibling love, Cavallari said in an interview, “I’m excited for the boys to grow up with a sister. I think it will help them to better understand and respect women.”
Tori Spelling – Finn
When it comes to unusual baby names Tori Spelling and her husband, Dean McDermott’s kids take the crown. Of the names, Spellig and McDermottn have chosen for their children that make up their large family are Finn, Liam, Stella and Hattie. Finn Davey McDermott who is the youngest of the family was born on Thursday, Aug. 30 at 5:39 p.m. Finn weighed in at six lbs., six oz., and was 20 inches long. The baby’s middle name, Davey, was in memory of Spelling’s grandfather.
Jessica Alba – Haven
Jessica Alba chose the name Haven for her second daughter, and there was a very special reason behind it. At the time of Haven’s birth, she was born still inside the amniotic sac. When Cash, Jessica’s husband, made a comment that the baby was born inside her “safe haven,” they both knew that they had found the perfect name for their child. While the name has a sweet story behind it, it’s definitely not a name you hear every day, or ever for that matter.
Alicia Silverstone – Bear Blu
Everyone calm down! Silverstone’s baby is neither blue or a bear this is just a witty play on words. Unfortunately, the actresses baby had no say when it came to his name other wise it may have been something more traditional like Dave or Mike. However, it was her husband Chris Jarecki’s mother that came up with the name. In an interview, the Clueless actress said, “We had narrowed our list to five boy names, and then we couldn’t really decide, she suggested Bear or Blu, and I loved them both.”
Kelly Clarkson – River Rose and Remington Blackstock
Kelly Clarkson, the winner of American Idol’s first season as well as an award-winning singer- songwriter, recently welcomed her second baby River Rose into the world with her husband, Brandon Blackstock. Although it may not be a common one we love her daughter’s nature-inspired name, as well as the classic name she chose for her newborn son, Remington Alexander. The Piece By Piece singer is very private when it comes to children and rarely posts photos of them to social media
Liv Tyler – Lula Rose
Liv Tyler, daughter of legendary rocker Steven Tyler, welcomed her first daughter with fiancé Dave Gardner and they gave her the most gorgeous and unique name, Lula Rose. It’s simple and lovely with a nice new twist on other popular “L” names like Lucy, Lilly, and Lila. While Lula is not currently on the list of the top 500 most popular baby names in the U.S., it was the 39th most popular girls name in 1880. Can we presume a comeback?
North West – Kim Kardashian
While everyone thought it was a joke when Kimye named their first daughter the direction inspired West, it turns out, both Pharrell and Vogue’s Editor In Chief Anna Wintour encouraged the name. In an interview, Kardashian said “Pharrell came over to us and said, ‘Oh my God, are you guys really going to call your daughter North? That is the best name.’ I said, ‘No, we’re not. That’s just a rumor. Then a little while later, Anna Wintour came over and asked the same thing. She told us, ‘North is a genius name.’ Kanye and I looked at one another and just laughed. I guess at that point it sort of stuck.” Well, that explains it!
Royalty – Chris Brown
Chris Brown has a daughter with Nia Guzman, however, they have had many difficulties over custody battles and court appearances. As of the latest news, Chris Brown was denied full custody of baby Royalty. Most of the world is still in shock to learn that the singer/rapper Chris Brown, is now a dad. He had previously talked about starting a family with (newly ex) girlfriend Karrueche Tran. The pair decided to keep Royalty as a secret until she turned one years old and the public find out.
Apple – Gwyneth Paltrow
An apple, it’s the forbidden fruit, the epitome of Americanism, one each day will keep the doctor away, and it’s also the name of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s first daughter. The power couple got the great idea from one of Chris Martin’s bandmates, who also named his child named Apple. During an interview with Oprah, Paltrow said she liked how the name sounded “wholesome” and “clean.”We don’t know about wholesome and clean, but the name definitely sounds crisp and delicious!
Bear – Liam Payne and Cheryl Cole
As new parents, to a baby boy, Liam and Cheryl, felt the pressure of naming their first child together. In fact, they took five weeks to decide on a name, after he was born. They finally settled on the name Bear, after Liam has always wanted a ‘tough’ name for his son. The name has become increasingly popular after Bear Grylls. Kate Winslet named her son Bear Blaze; and actress Alicia Silverstone named her son Bear Blu.
Dusty Rose – Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo
Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Victoria Secret’s model Behati Prinsloo had a baby girl recently and named her Dusty Rose. There is actually an interesting story behind where they got their name from. Adam turned to friend and TV host Ellen Degeneres for some suggestions and she sent them the name Dusty Rose and they instantly fell in love with it. Dusty Rose is the pair’s first child.
Ines & James – Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds decided to go for the unconventional names when naming their daughters. They made their first public family debut at the ceremony for Reynolds’ star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. According to Nameberry, the name Ines loosely translates to “pure” or “virginal”. James was named after Ryan’s dad, James, passed away. They felt that the name was gender-neutral enough to pass as a girl’s name.
Aleph Portman – Natalie Portman
Natalie Portman is married to French ballet dancer Benjamin Millepied, and the duo have two kids together. Aleph was born in 2011, and the most recent edition, Amalia, was born in 2017. The name, which can also be spelled Alef, is the first letter in the Hebrew alphabet. Her daughter Amalia’s name means “work of God” in Hebrew. Natalie is very private about her personal life and only shared her babies news week’s after their births. It would be easy to guess that she has gone for spiritual Hebrew names for her kids.
Rumi & Sir Carter – Beyoncé and Jay-Z
The world lost it when Queen Bey announced that her and Jay Z were expecting twins. In a series of Instagram photo announcements, the world grew more and more excited for their arrival in June. The chosen names are Sir Carter and Rumi, a baby boy and girl. Sir Carter was likely named with a sense of royalty, and Rumi is the name of a 13th century Persian poet, famous for writing about love, religion and being of service to all people.
Blue Ivy – Beyoncé and Jay-Z
There are many rumors swirling as to why Beyoncé and Jay-Z named their daughter Blue Ivy, all of which lead back to the whole Illuminati theory. It’s important to know that both singers have a particular fondness for the color blue, like when Jay-Z rapped “My favorite hue is Jay-Z blue” and the fact that he released three Blueprint albums. As far as the tot’s middle name, Ivy, which stands for the Roman numeral IV, or four, this is Jay Z’s birthday (Dec. 4), Beyoncé’s birthday (Sept. 4), as well as their anniversary date (April 4). The whole thing is very cryptic, which makes it even more mysterious.
Ella and Alexander – Amal and George Clooney
George and Amal Clooney had twins on the June 6th 2017, and introduced their daughter and son, Ella and Alexander respectively. These are first children for both Amal and George. Alexander is a traditional Greek name, meaning ‘defender of men’; and the name Ella is an increasingly popular name for little girls meaning ‘beautiful fairy woman’.
