Apple, Ocean, Sonnet: Wackiest Celebrity Baby Names

Victoria Beckham named her newborn daughter Harper Seven. A source says, "it’s an old English name Victoria has always liked", and seven comes from the month and hour that Harper was born.

This just proves that, if there’s one thing celebrities love, it’s giving their babies unusual names. From Apple to Ocean, if your parents are famous, chances are you’ve got a whacky name.

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow named their daughter Apple because it “sounded sweet.” That name was so weird, no one seemed to notice when the couple named their second kid Moses.

Another ex-Spice girl, Geri Halliwell, named her daughter Bluebell Madonna in 2006. Halliwell said she got the name from a rare but beautiful flower. The only question now is: at what age will this kid adopt the nickname "Blue Balls"?

Bruce Willis and Demi Moore named their kids Scout, Rumer and Tallulah. Really? You guys couldn’t have thrown a Steve or Bill in there?

Bono named his daughter Memphis Eve back in 1991. But hey, there are worse places to be named after. I guess she could’ve been ‘Jersey Shore’ Eve.

Spike Lee named his daughter Satchel. She was named after the great baseball player Satchel Paige. Unfortunately, he passed away in 1982, and these days, Satchel is just a euphemism for “man purse.”

Sylvester Stallone and his first wife named their son Sage Moonblood. Surprisingly, he did not become a professional wrestler.

Forest Whitaker and Keisha Nash have four children between them: Autumn, Sonnet, True and Ocean. How’d they come up with these names, by randomly picking words out of a Robert Frost poem?

With the exception of Vivienne and maybe Shiloh, Angelina Jolie’s kids have notoriously bizarre names: Zahara, Knox, Pax and Maddox. Half of them sound like they’re named after prescription medications.

Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith gave their daughter a powerful name: Willow Camille Reign. There was no chance she wouldn’t be a diva.

Sometimes celebrities give their kids names that are unique and cute, and sometimes they’re just setting them up to get bullied. But hey, for a closet full of couture, I would change my name to Suri Cruise any day.
