Aren't You Glad Your Name Isn't Dweezil?

Famous celebrities sure know how to concoct the most bizarre names for their offspring. I thought it would be quite entertaining to compile a list of outlandish monikers for you to gasp over.

Are you ready for this:

Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily – daughter of Michael Hutchence (INXS) & Paula Yates
Dandelion – daughter of Keith Richards (Rolling Stones)
Phinnaeus Walter – son of Julia Roberts & Daniel Moder
Tu – daughter of Rob Morrow (yes, she’s called Tu Morrow!)
Apple – daughter of Chris Martin (Coldplay) & Gwyneth Paltrow
Moses – son of Chris Martin (Coldplay) & Gwyneth Paltrow
Sage Moonblood – son of Sylvester Stallone
Moon Unit – daughter of Frank & Gail Zappa
Dweezil – son of Frank & Gail Zappa
Ahmed Emuukha Rodan – son of Frank & Gail Zappa
Diva Muffin - daughter of Frank & Gail Zappa
Pilot Inspektor – son of Jason Lee & Beth Riesgraf
Jermajesty – son of Jermaine Jackson
Duncan Zowie Heywood Jones – son of David Bowie
Elijah Bob Patricius Guggi Q – son of Bono (U2)
Memphis Eve – daughter of Bono (U2)
Chastity Sun – daughter of Sonny & Cher
Chorde – child of Snoop Doggy Dog
Rumer Glenn – daughter of Demi Moore & Bruce Willis
Geronimo – son of Alex James (Blur)
Rufus Tiger – son of Roger Taylor (Queen)
Fifi Trixabelle – daughter of Bob Geldof & Paula Yates
Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa – daughter of Bob Geldof & Paula Yates
Kal-el – son of Nicolas Cage
Fuschia – daughter of Sting
Speck Wildhorse – son of John Cougar Mellencamp
Denim – son of Toni Braxton & Keri Lewis
Deizel Ky – son of Toni Braxton & Keri Lewis
Audio Science – son of Shannyn Sossamon & Dallas Clayton

Hopper Jack – son of Sean Penn & Robin Wright
Moxie Crimefighter – daughter of Penn Jilette & Emily Zolten
Beauregard – son of Mick Jagger & Jerry Hall

And you thought it would be cool to have Bono for a daddy!

Fellow parents, please be kinder to your children.

Golly gheez, didn't their parents think what other the other kids would think of their names? When these kids turned kinder, by the time they finish writing their names, the others are already done with their school work.

I just came across another name you can add to the list! The daughter of Rob Morrow (presently on Numb3rs and formerly of Northern Exposure) is named Tu Simone Morrow. Tu Morrow! Ahahahahaha, but it's kinda cute ha (or maybe that's just because I find him hot now that he's gotten older).

Where are you guys getting your info? What makes you think they will suffer? Do you really know people who have suffered with names that were different? And moreso statistically than those with "normal" names? It seems like anecdotal nonsense.

some of the names on this list are unusual, some silly, some just different from what people (esp. filipinos) are used to.

Beauregard isn't outlandish. It's a proper French name for a boy and it means 'beautiful gaze'.

It's just not common is all.

I don't know. Maybe some of them did (or do) get teased. But, the cooler kids wear their names proud.

And to a certain extent, I bet they're glad they're not named something common, like say, Jane.


Ian (i'm female; and no, it's not short for anything =P)

Thanks everyone for dropping by and taking time to leave your comments!

My search for unusual monikers continues. Watch out for a new list soon! c",)

More reasons why celebrities should not be allowed to speak publicly. Every time I thought I had read the worst name ever on your list, I got to the next line and it was worse.

Yikes!! I think I need to move my family farther away from Hollyweird!

Great post!
