Say What?!

Hey-lo to you too, fellow blogonians. Thanks supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for the comments! I have finally hit the double digits (CELEBRATE NOW!!!)

So, I just found about the queen of new ska (aka Gwen Stefani) and her hubby had their second kid. I was exited, not because of what the gender is or who he/she (it is a he) would resemble more but of the anticipated name of the child. Normally, if this was a family member or someone else I know, the name isn't as big as a deal because generally, they want something classy/sophisticated/nice/normal etc. so the naming isn't as extravagant. BUT since it's a celeb, they MUST MUST MUST outdo all of the other celebrities who named their kids strange. So, I decided to do a post dedicated to this manner.

10. David Duchovny and Tea Leoni-Kyd Miller Duchovny 
What was the inspiration?? They were like "Hey, this is our second kid. Hmmm, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT NAME??" I'm just imagining the confusion whenever someone yells out the word "kid"

9. Rob Morrow-Tu Morrow
If none of you guys know who this guy is, he plays the cop brother on Numb3rs, FYI. I like the occasional pun here and then but I want to know if he named his daughter as a joke. Honestly, is this going to help her??? I don't think so.

8. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale- Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale
I was pretty excited when I heard Gwen was preggers again and hoped for a baby Gwen. To my dismay, Gwen had another son whose name sounds like a girl's. It's not that I hate it, I just find it to be more feminine. Plus, why Rock as a middle name? His brother's name sounds so majestic and Zuma's name is...well, sinking like a rock.

7. Nicolas Cage- Kal-El
Nic Cage said he wanted something exotic and still very American. So why not name your kid after Superman. Clark isn't bad. But Mr. Cage decided that it wasn't good enough so let's name him what Superman was originally called Kal-El, son of Jor-El. Isn't there a better way of showing your love for comics??

6. Sylvester Stallone- Sage Moonblood
I'm giving some props to Sly just because he made sure the weirder name is not her first name. Still, you had to use the word "blood" in it someway, didn't you? (Note: what is Moonblood??)

5. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow- Apple Blythe Allison Martin
Ok, I love both of these people. And the name isn't that strange. First of all, Apple is on here because if you add an "i" to Martin, her name would be Apple Martini (great job!). Also, upon reading Gwyneth's explanation on why they named her Apple, Gwyneth hardly seemed to know herself. Finally, last month Chris (who I still like) said this, quote "There's nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that's what you want to call your baby". Chris, THERE ARE MANY THINGS WRONG WITH YOU IF YOU NAME YOUR KID AFTER A WOOKIE. That's why Apple is on the list. 

4. Frank Zappa- any of his kids
Ok, if none of you guys know, Frank has named all his children VERY strangely. His kids' names are: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. Ya, he had a pretty cool last name but I think I would trade it for Smith if my first name was any one of those.

3. Penn Jillette- Moxie Crimefighter
Here we are folks, take 1 magician and a lady and PRESTO! You get Moxie Crimefighter. Really, it's bad enough you had to name her after a soda (which tastes awful) but you just had to give her a career also?? At least if she somehow receives Daddy's "magical" skills, she already has a name for that character. 

2. Jermaine Jackson- Jermajesty


1. Jason Lee- Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee
I don't hate Jason Lee. He's somewhat entertaining on My Name's Earl, he seems to be not into the Hollywood Scene a lot, he sounds like a regular guy gone famous. SO WHY DID HE NAME HIS KID THIS??? I don't even know how to pronounce the 3rd name and why is Inspector spelled with a "K"?? It's all truly mind boggling. What's the kid's nickname? Pi?? Here is a true example of a celeb kid who may end up killing his self/father/mother/anybody because of the name he was stricken with. 

Well, that's my list but when you comment (and please do comment!), why don't you add some names you find weird, or who I should put in a different spot, etc. Next post will have lots of outfits, I promise.

Keep on rocking in the free world (haha, narduar)

There is a drama professor at my school. His last name is White. He got married in recent years. His wife's first name? Snow.

It must be fun for her signing her name on official documents.

Anyway, thank you for the comments! have a wonderful blog.

Keep at it! =)

Madame HELL said...

hehe I only knew about Zappa's "enfants" but I think it'd be him or Jason Lee to take the cake as they say. There's been some strange ones!

Kris said...

hahaha. i agree with that. WHY did gwen name her son ZUMA?! i think thats a kind of cheap, fruity alcoholic beverage somewhere. no joke, it really is. likewise harlow (the name of nicole richie's daughter) is the name of a rather chavvy area in london. celebrities need to get a clue!

yoncto said...

oh, and speaking of weird names, my friend knows a girl at her school who's middle eastern of some sort. her parents named her a name that's pronounced like
"shih-theed", but spelled like shithead. poor, poor girl.
