The British rank bizarre celebrity baby names

Complaining about unusual celebrity names started but has spread across the pond to our friends in Britain. This British poll lists the most bizarre names for celeb babies.

The British rank bizarre celebrity baby names

Many celebrity baby names are bizarre, but one name has to take home the honor of being the most bizarre of all time. Family Active, Britain’s interactive baby channel, asked their viewers to rank the most bizarre celebrity baby names of all time. Over a 1000 people cast their votes and Frank Zappa’s daughter’s name ‘Moon Unit’ took home the honor. Or should we say dishonor. YeahBaby.com lists the 20 top vote getters, which were a smattering of British and U.S. celebs.

  1. Moon Unit – This peculiar baby girl name comes to us thanks to Frank and Gail Zappa. If the Zappa’s were looking for publicity with this name, they have certainly received more than their fair share. Fifi Trixibelle – The first name Fifi is bad, but paired with Trixibelle makes it even worse. Paula Yates and Bob Geldof should have known better.
  2. Satchel – This name was chosen by Mia Farrow and Woody Allen for their one biological son. It doesn’t seem so odd to those baby namers in the states, as one of baseball’s best pitchers of all time was named Satchel.
  3. Apple – Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin chose the name Apple for their little girl and the world will never be the same. Yikes.
  4. Daisy Boo – Jamie Oliver, also known as The Naked Chef, and his wife Julia should stick to cooking. These two names together leave much to be desired.
  5. Rumer – This girl name chosen by Demi Moore and Bruce Willis makes waves in Britain as well, and for good reason.
  6. Peaches – Another Paula Yates and Bob Geldof ‘favorite’. What names would they have ended up with had they had 10 or 12 kids!
  7. River – This baby boy name for Arlyn and John Phoenix was chosen as bizarre by the Brits, but don’t tell that to the gaggle of girls that fell in love with this young actor. They loved the name.
  8. Rocco – Rocco? Yucko. Madonna and Guy Ritchie need more than 9 months to come up with this name.
  9. Nell Marmalade – (Helen Baxendale and David Eliot)
  10. Maddox – Angelina Jolie chose this name for her adopted son. We love it.
  11. Tiger Lily Heavenly Hirani – Once Paula Yates divorced Bob Geldof, she married Michael Hutchence and the baby naming madness continued with this name. Perhaps Paula was the driving force behind these unusual baby names
  12. Dweezil – This brother of Moon Unit Zappa makes the list. Another award for parents Frank and Gail Zappa.
  13. Brooklyn – Britain’s celebrity royalty, Victoria and David Beckham, draw jeers for this name. We give them cheers.
  14. Eugenie – Real British Royalty are not immune from a little snubbing. Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew make the list with this old time baby name.
  15. Zowie – Comes to us from celeb parents Angie and David Bowie. Its bad enough alone, but is even worse when combined to create Zowie Bowie.
  16. Rolan – 1970’s rockers Gloria Jones and Marc Bolan combine to create an offspring named Rolan Bolan. This collaboration only ranks high on this chart!
  17. Phoenix Chi – British Spice Girl Mel C and her dancer husband Jimmy Gulzar make the list with Phoenix. We mildly disagree, but at least it doesn’t rank high on the list.
  18. Coco – Courtney Cox and David Arquette have one kid and it makes this list of celebrity baby naming insanity.
  19. Romeo – A second entry by Victoria and David Beckham, but this one is more worthy of the ‘honor’ than the other entry Brooklyn.
